Story

Massive moss-draped cedar and sitka spruce tower above the Haida people’s ancient carved poles and fallen longhouses on the lush rainforest islands of Gwaii Haanas. Skies fill with bald eagles, bears scavenge salmon on wild beaches and the ocean teems with breaching whales, porpoises and sea lions. Experience a rich, remote landscape steeped in spirituality, protected by Parks Canada and the Haida who draw cultural inspiration from this land of their ancestors.

Photography

Neil has contributed to a number of publications I've worked on over the last few years and has not only delivered excellent photographic work, but he's also been an inspiration to many of the colleagues I've worked with on creating such content. Neil aims high and hits the target. In some respects, even more impressive than the physical results of his work, are the reactions my colleagues have had to the inspiring messages Neil promotes. He's a keen advocate of the importance of telling conservation stories through images, and his message both figuratively and literally leaves a mark on his audiences.
