Darwin Wiggett - Winter in the Canadian Rockies

Darwin Wiggett has been a professional photographer that I have had my eye on for a long time. I’m uncertain why this is precisely but it likely gets down to “I can relate to what he does”. I spent eight years living in Calgary with trips to the Canadian Rockies or Montana many weekends, almost a spiritual experience. This is the power these magnificent mountains can hold over you regardless if you are purely a visitor or a photographer. Being a professional photographer, I have also explored these areas and been completely amazed by the overall beauty and feeling of the Canadian Rockies. Darwin Wiggett takes is one step further and shows us the beauty of this area in wintertime, perhaps in many ways the most beautiful season however at the same time for any photographer the most challenging.

I have always been fascinated in viewing other photographers work, partly for a personal learning experience but additionally from a more “business” sense”. I will point out here that I completely believe in the concept that you are never good enough that you have absolutely nothing to learn. I will leave that to the arrogant professional photographers living in big cities.

Just what does Darwin Wiggett deliver to us in this e-book? To begin with, he discusses the preparation behind doing serious photography throughout the winter. I realize that everyone has an “amazing” photograph they shot but let’s get realistic; doing photography in cold weather conditions is equally hard on the camera equipment as well as our aging bodies.

Darwin’s photos are an example of a professional photographer that feels entirely comfortable with their surroundings. Believe me, this can be one of the more important factors! He is a master at the grand landscape but additionally works well with the intimate landscape too, all this in the severe conditions that cold weather can bring.
