Looking back at 2013/2014, the year of Solar Maximum, it didn’t turn out to be as active as I had anticipated. Sure, we had some spectacular shows but there were a few major CME (Coronal Mass Ejection) events that never materialized into any visual Aurora. All the things that need to align didn’t. Having said that, as I look though my archive for the year, I still managed to get out 41 times strictly chasing aurora in 2014!
As I recap the last few years, I am very proud to see what has developed and look forward to 2015 as another very successful year with my photography. I am especially excited about the new partnership with Rowles & Company – Alberta’s Corporate Gift and Art Gallery! I am official gallery represented now! The gallery has already opened some very big doors for my photography with a very exciting project which I will reveal a little later this year.
A presentation to the Images Alberta Camera Club titled “Alberta Aurora Photography – A Journey into the Night.”
I am also looking forward to my first official gallery exhibition, date/location TBA – late March/early April.
Here is a quick review of 2013/2014:
Rowles & Company – Alberta’s Corporate Gift and Art Gallery and I have partnered in a gallery relationship. www.Rowles.ca
Apple has continued to included my aurora image in the IOS 7/8 desktop backgrounds.
ATB – MasterCard purchased an aurora image and has made it available on their credit cards.
National Geographic has published my photography in two different books this year. Sublime Nature – Photographs That Awe & Inspire and

Melcor Developments unveiled their newest community – Aurora
SkyNews Magazine did an Aurora spread in the July/August 2014 print edition, in the Celestial Wonders Galley.
I would also like to thank ALL of the online/TV media that continue to promote and display my photography. Allowing me to submit and display my imagery is an ongoing win-win situation for all of us.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT!!!

Moving forward into 2015 I am going to try and document each of this years photo excursions with posts shortly after each adventure. Please check in and follow my reports as I roam the Alberta Prairies on my quest to capture more of Mother Natures best nighttime show, the Aurora Borealis.
I am also going to commit some time to sharing what I have learned while chasing the Aurora Borealis across Alberta!
