Best of 2019 Imagery

words:: Todd Lawson  cover photo:: Scott Serfas

Photography still remains the number one form of inspiration amongst our audience, and here in Canada we’re lucky to have a roster of more than 300 talented photographers who submit images for consideration into the pages of all our publications. Selecting what images we publish, and those that get left on the cutting room floor, is both a difficult and rewarding process. Thousands of images grace our eyeballs every year, and we are continually blown away by the quality of imagery that ends up in our pages. As you’ll see in the images below, outdoor photography is thriving, big time.

To us, it’s the moment that matters. We seek to publish photos that bring our readers closer together and inspire and motivate them to go out and make incredible photographs for themselves. 2019 was a huge year in the outdoor world, and we’re proud of all our photographers for what they bring to the table. Keep the bangers coming! —ML
