Nature in My Backyard Collection and Upcoming Events

We moved to Cochrane in August of 2014.  A big part of the decision to move to the Riviera neighborhood was the Nature Reserve located in our backyard and the Bow River out front.   The Nature Reserve is filled with birds and wildlife and inspired the beginning of  “Nature in My Backyard”.   My photography adventures include amazing locations all within an hour of Cochrane….(occasionally just a little further)

All “Nature in my Backyard” photograph (located in the Gallery) are available for purchase as individual high resolution prints to fit standard frame sizes.

The “Nature in My Backyard” Collection “signature style” features a matte or canvas finish that require no glass.  “Signature Collection” pieces are custom framed by “Oucharek Projects” in rustic wood collected from local ranches in the Cochrane area.  Due to the uniqueness of the wood, each piece has a “one of kind” look and feel.
