I live in Calgary where photography and hiking are my passions. My goal is not only to discover mountains, but also catch unique and remarkable views. When I reach a peak and photograph from it, I try to recreate it exactly on the computer.

Regarding the technical details for all my panoramas I have been using Manfrotto 303SPH panoramic head. I work with Canon 1Ds Mark II or 5D Mark II with fixed lens (14mm-180mm). I also use Auto Exposure Bracketing, with 3,5,6 or 7 pictures for every single shot, to extend range of definition. I stitch photos in PTGui afterwards and post processing is being done in Photoshop. Pan and zoom versions on my website are being created with Zoomify Design from www.zoomify.com.
