In January of 2019 I travelled to northern Canada to scout a new trip to photograph Snowy Owls in winter. This was actually my first time to Canada (although I am returning later this year in late December) and I thoroughly enjoyed the winter experience. I managed to time my experience in Canada jut about perfectly as it coincided with a severe cold snap of weather that provided some wonderful opportunities (albeit in very cold conditions).
The landscape in the part of Canada I chose to photograph the owl wouldn’t be described as visually spectacular, but it was absolutely ideal for the task at hand, with flat snow covered farm land serving as the perfect environment to photograph this truly amazing bird.
For those of you who are joining me for this new Snowy Owl workshop in December I am pleased to say that the location is just about perfect with a number of different birds (around half a dozen or so) in the local area.
Snowy Owls are wonderful birds to photograph and of all the species I have photographed around the world they are most definitely my favourite. The combination of their white plumage with mottled markings and glowing, iridescent yellow eyes set against a backdrop of soft snow is just gorgeous and makes for superb imagery.
I have uploaded a small portfolio of photographs from my scouting trip to my main website here: Snowy Owls of Canada
