Hyena Cult, Ethiopia — Vancouver Island Photographer

I took this picture outside the Ethiopian city of Harar, near the Somalian border. The ceremony takes place every night just outside the walled city gates. Hyenas are nocturnal pack hunters that rip their prey apart. Not a pleasant end but, then again, most endings in the wild are not. The idea behind the Hyena Cult is this: if they feed them every night the Hyenas will spare their children. One family has been doing this for generations and it’s […]

Kyuquot, Northwest Vancouver Island — Vancouver Island Photographer

Kyuquot, on the northwestern tip of Vancouver Island, is a wild, beautiful and moody region on the Pacific Ocean. It is a paddler’s paradise. I took this picture of our Blue Moon in late August. It’s been an amazing summer of people, events and places. Now that fall is upon us, you’ll be seeing a regular sampling of what I captured over the summer months. Bye for now. Gordon

Zebras in the Serengeti, Tanzania – Vancouver Island Travel Photographer

Skittish zebras at a waterhole. Safety in numbers, zebras are pack animals. With predators lurking on land and in the water, the life of a zebra seems to be a nervous one. When one moves, they all move and keep running back and forth to the water. Perfect for a photographer – just sit with a long lens and shoot away. I love the dynamism and their synchronous movement. You can see more Serengeti images here. Bye for now. Gordon […]

Ria Ambrose – Comox Valley Portrait Photographer

The eyes of Ria. Ria’s eyes are compelling. I love the power of her stare and the frame of colour that envelopes her face. I love the way her hair curls to meet her lips. Beautiful. Bye for now. Gordon
