My favorite photos of 2019

A selection of my favorite photos from the year. Travels to Norway, British Columbia and California.

Spent the month of January traveling in northern Norway.
Visited Senja Island and Lofoten in the dead of winter.
It’s truly an amazing place any time of year. 
We stayed in traditional fisherman’s huts called Rorbu.
Tragedy struck my favorite live-aboard dive operation. Although lots of positive changes are happening in the entire industry as a result. 
The spirit bear, one of the world’s rarest mammals, in Canada’s Great Bear Rainforest.
A grizzly bear roams the Great Bear Rainforest, British Columbia.
Humpback whales in the fjords of British Columbia.
I created portraits of the crew of our boat, Swell, operated by Maple Leaf Adventures.
One of the best trips we’ve ever taken.
