New Beginnings

I'm excited to announce that I have taken a giant step forward with Tradewinds Photography.  

During the next few months the talented team at Outcrop Communications, Yukon branch, will work with me to develop and design a new image for my photography business.  We've already discussed some exciting new changes – I cannot wait to introduce you to ClausVogelPhotography.com.

Until then, I invite you to follow my progress on this blog where I will also continue to share my images, stories and introduce you to some new products and workshops.

I've been sitting on my behind for far too long – time for some new challenges!!

Here's to new beginnings!  How exciting.

Simplicity on the Cape

Head of the Meadow Beach, Cape Cod

Good morning from the Cape! 

I could easily spend the entire summer on Cape Cod photographing its rolling sand dunes and blue skies.  Such simple subjects to photograph, yet an endless array of possibilities given the changing light, skies and colours. 

Hope you are enjoying your summer.

Greetings the from the Cape!

Cape Cod has always been one of my favourite places to photograph.  The soft pastel colours of late afternoon sun, the golden dunes, the seagrass gently blowing in the breeze and the miles upon miles of empty beaches - such is life on the Cape.

Hope all is well in your corner of the world.

In full bloom

Wild Rose

Jacob's Ladder

The Yukon is in full bloom – what a fabulous time to be out and about with camera in hand.  The wild roses, poppies, daises, asters, fireweed and a host of other plants are now out in full flower.

Canada Day Fireworks

Here's one more image from yesterday's Canada Day fireworks display over Parliament Hill. This photo is actually a compilation of three separate shots taken at various points throughout last nights pyrotechnic show.  I used the cloning tool feature in Photoshop to add two shots (shot 1 of the the centre bursts and shot 2 of the blue burst to the right) to the original image that just included the large orange burst to the right. 
Let me know what you think?

Hope you enjoyed your holidays.


July issue of Above & Beyond is now out

The July issue of Above & Beyond is now available onboard all First Air flights and in bookstores across the country.  Two of my grizzly bear images are featured in an article describing how grizzly bears have moved northwards into polar bear country.
