Welcome to my blog. Here I will post photographs of my travels, news about my current projects, post-processing articles, photography workshops and photography tips. I hope this blog gives me the opportunity to share my photography and travel passions and what I have learnt in this journey in the last 20 years.

║ Come to Canada in autumn with The Light Collective

Join Luke Austin (International Landscape Photographer of the Year) and Ignacio Palacios of The Light Collective to an epic trip in Canada where we will be chasing auroras, and photographing the beautiful fall colors of the Yukon and the Canadian Rockies...

Yukon (Canada)

From late August to the end of September the fall colours start to descend along the mountain tree lines and the ground starts to turn orange, red and yellow. The lakes are not frozen and offers some great opportunity for reflections of aurora or mountain backdrops.

It is here in Whitehorse where Canada boasts the best location in the world for viewing the aurora borealis. As the nights grow longer, the green, red and mauve lights of aurora borealis, or northern lights, are absolutely brilliant in their dance across the sky.

The Canadian Rockies

The Canadian Rockies (Canadian Rocky Mountains) are a impressive mountain range that runs along the borders of Alberta and British Columbia in Canada.

The Canadian Rockies include UNESCO world heritage areas such as Banff and Jasper National Parks, two of the parks that we will be spending most of our time photographing, along with the equally impressive Kananaskis Region.

What will we likely photograph in the Canadian Rockies? Maybe the question should be what won’t we be photographing?
