Everyone looks good on a horse!
This was a remarkable Thanksgiving day. The sky was dark and dramatic in the background, but the sun managed to peak out for a few moments. What was remarkable for me is that I managed to take this photo while riding a horse!

Perhaps it would be easier to take a shot with a small point and shoot, or with a wide angle lens, but instead I used my 70-200 telephoto to increase the size of the mountains in the background.I positioned the riders on the right side of the frame, facing into the view to satisfy that unconscious urge to "see what the riders are looking into". 

The somewhat ridiculous setting on this photo is the fact that I have a high shutter speed of 1/2500 of a second. At first this might look like a mistake, but in reality, holding a telephoto lens or a moving horse will create a lot of motion blur, and this high shutter speed will prevent that blur from happening.

Here is a link to conservationist, Brian Keating's, latest interview with CBC from Antarctica. Although Kyle and Brian are not travelling together, they are in the same area and seeing much of the same wildlife. Have a listen!

Full-time Professional Photographer, Adventurer and Human.

At age 28 this full time photographer specialises in wildlife landscape and commercial photography.

Photography became a passport to new places when he took on the role of a photography guide and assistant expedition leader; escorting camera enthusiasts and photographers alike to the Arctic and Antarctic where some of the most stunning landscapes and wildlife exist. He's not averse to teaching his technique to anyone looking to excel their photography skills. Some artists might think they have a secret process but there are no real secrets and Kyle enjoys seeing how other budding photographers work. He is very diverse in his commercial, industrial, wildlife, landscape and food photography and draws inspiration from his other life passions into his work as well. His work is printed on a myriad of materials and media; from videos and slideshows to canvas gallery wraps.  In his spare time Kyle enjoys hiking, snowshoeing, ski-touring, kayaking, scuba diving, rock climbing, various equine activities, biking, and anything outdoors.

If you are interested in upcoming workshops, photography expeditions or prints please contact Kyle at his website for more information at KYLEFOTO.COM
