Using Photography for Good: Contribute to BC Wildfires 2017


John Entwistle

I will be donating 50% of all website sales from to the Canadian Red Cross to support those affected by the 2017 BC Wildfire season.

They say that the worst may be yet to come. 2017 has been the worst fire year since 1958 in terms of area burned, and the smoke that has been pouring over the province is an eerie reminder that this emergency is very real.

As I was sitting in my living room the other day due to the fact that it is nearly impossible to enjoy the outdoors due to the smoke, I thought...What can I do to make a positive impact?

I figured that I have been out and about, photographing every corner of our beautiful province for the last 11 years, and that maybe I could somehow use that for good. So, I have decided that every sale during the month of august at will go directly to the Canadian Red Cross to help with those who have been affected directly by this year's wildfires. I realize this won't be a donation of many millions (or even thousands) of dollars, but every little bit helps. 

So, if you are at all interested, feel free to head over to, and check it out. Every image qualifies, as I will be taking the total sales from August, and donating exactly half. 

Thank you!

One of the things that I love about photography is how the quality of light can make or break a photo. When shooting outdoors it is those early hours in the morning that I love the most.

6 Reasons Why You Should Use a Telephoto Lens for Landscape Photography

When most people start out taking landscape photos, they think they need to get a wide angle lens in order to capture the whole landscape. When I bought my first DSLR, I was one of those people.

Our Hike to Angels Landing: Dangerous? Maybe. Amazing? Definitely.

Three weeks before my sister turned 24 she texted me to ask if I wanted to go on a trip for her birthday. She wasn’t sure where she wanted to go but she knew she wanted to be outdoors.
