Forest in Revelstoke National Park, Canada by William Gray

Canada Portfolio

Canada is huge and diverse – I'd love to explore more of this amazing country, but three locations I've found to be superb for photography are Churchill, Vancouver Island and the Canadian Rockies.

The photographs below will hopefully give you just a flavour of the travel and photographic opportunities in Canada. If you're a keen wildlife photographer, Churchill in Manitoba should be high on your wishlist. Visit during autumn to witness the annual gathering of polar bears along the shores of Hudson Bay. Large-wheeled polar rovers provide a safe vantage to photograph these powerful carnivores up close and personal.

My favourite adventure in Canada is sea kayaking in Johnstone Strait, camping on the myriad islands and keeping watch for orca and humpback whales. It has to be one of the world's ultimate wilderness experiences. I've done two weeklong kayaking trips, one paddling from island to island, taking all your supplies with you, and the other using a single island as a base camp and setting out on day paddles.

For a memorable Canadian road trip, nothing rivals the Vancouver-Banff-Jasper loop, taking in the spectacular forest and mountain scenery of the Canadian Rockies – and less-visited national parks like Yoho and Mount Revelstoke.
