Outdoor photography is dependent on the ever-changing qualities of light and weather, as well as the billions of variables in our biosphere.

“My background is in newspapers, so most of my favourite shots happen naturally, when I see something out of the corner of my eye. Coming up the Comet Express lift I noticed the Sun Dog hitting the Milky Way. When I reached the top I raced down halfway, looking for an angle. Lo and behold a ski instructor and two friends were taking a break ‘at the right place at the right time.’”
