Our Braggin' Rights

Some of our biggest accomplishments (Hoping the list will grow all the time)

I was a commercial fisherman for the most part of 30 years. My family and I moved to Western Canada in 2007 and to the Rocky Mountains in July of 2009.
At this time I decided to take some photos of the mountains and share them with friends around the world. I was very new to computers but I taught myself a crash course in Photoshop and by Spring of 2010 I purchased an Epson 7880 Stylus Pro Fine Art Giclée Printer and with the help of Google I learned to produce fine art canvas prints.

Now I also do custom matting and framing and as well I make my own wooden frames from scratch.

In the meantime I picked up enough skills to build my own websites and I do my own SEO and at this time am driving over 10,000 visits per month to my site.

Below are a few of the Bragging Rights I have earned.

This Image Was Seen on the Billboards in Times Square. (Summer 2012)

I entered a contest with ArtistsWanted and won a spot on the billboards.

The web cams went down just as it started and I was lucky enough to see this on twitter soon after.

This Image Was Chosen By National Geographic For Their Stock Photo Site. (Spring 2012)

I have a gallery at National Geographic's website. I submit to it faithfully on a monthly basis.

In spring of 2012 I received word my 22 picture panorama of Natural Bridge Falls was chosen to be in their stock photo site.

Not only is the print file extremely huge, being 22 photos stitched together, which makes it suitable for large prints but also I was told that if ever an article appears in their magazine, which might call for this type of image, then it will be readily available and have a chance to be chosen.
