Canada

It’s only when I started traveling that I understood how lucky I was to be born in Canada. I find it harder to see the beauty in the things I see every day, which is why I thought traveling was so stimulating and exciting. Every day I was exposed to something new, and I was taking the time to let it all in and appreciate the beauty around me. But the thing is, Canada is so gigantic I can’t say I’ve seen 5% of it all even if I’ve been living here my whole life. Being back home now, I am definitely determined to stop once in a while to appreciate everything beautiful that surrounds me.

Abitibi

No matter how I feel about Abitibi, it’s always going to be the place I call home. I grew up and spent the first 17 years of my life there, and as much as I used to hate it, I learned to appreciate it a little bit more with the time. While it might not be as spectacular as other parts of Canada, there are plenty of outdoor activities you can do. Most of the pictures in this section were taken in my parent’s backyard on the Harricana River.

Mont-Tremblant

Some people travel thousands of kilometers to witness the fabulous autumn colors of southern Canada / Northern USA. While I am lucky enough to have easy access to such sceneries every year, it is the first time that I actually get out there to take pictures. While I was traveling and becoming more and more interested in photography, I was looking forward to being back home to capture the amazing fall landscapes of Tremblant, the most famous ski resort in Quebec. Fall 2017 was exceptionally warm, which forced me to wait a couple weeks longer than usual to get the lush, red/orange colors I wanted to capture, but it was well worth the wait!

Tremblant is a beautiful village located an hour and a half drive away from Montreal which can be visited all year-round. Depending on the period, there are plenty of exciting outdoors activity to choose from, like skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, swimming, ice-skating, kayaking, and so on. Staying in the village can be quite expensive, especially during peak season, but there are other accommodation options in the nearby villages for a fraction of the price. If you want to visit during autumn and see the maple leaves go from green to orange and red, you should plan a visit somewhere between October 5 and 15.

Montréal 

I might be biased, but Montreal is one of my favorite cities in the world, if not my absolute favorite. I’ve traveled quite a lot and can say for sure that I haven’t seen many places where the people are so open-minded and nice to each other. On top of being very safe, Montreal is full of cool neighborhoods to explore, delicious food to eat, amazing bars to have a drink and has several nice cities to visit within a couple hours from the city. Unfortunately, the weather in the winter is quite extreme, making it difficult for whoever isn’t a fan of freezing to death to do anything here between December and April. If you’re visiting from overseas, I strongly recommend coming between May and October, September being the best option weather-wise.

Québec City 

Québec is one of Canada’s oldest cities and is quite popular amongst tourists visiting Montreal. If you’re going, make sure you check out the iconic Frontenac Castle (although it’d be hard to miss) as well as the Old Quebec. I’ve only been to Québec City a couple of times in my life so I can’t say I know that much about it, but it’s definitely worth going for a couple of days if you find yourself in Montreal.

Toronto 

I’ve only been to Toronto once since I started photography and while I can’t say it’s the most photogenic place I’ve been to, there’s still some good fun to be had wandering around town. The trickiest part about shooting in the city is that it is growing fast, which means there’s always a crane or an unfinished tower in the background. I hope to be able to go back soon and take some more pictures at night or when the sun is shining!
