Canadian Nature

Splendid North-American Mountaintops Captured by Morgan Philips

When outdoor clothing and sporting brand, Arc’teryx, and tourism boards, Explore Canada, and Alberta contacted photographer Morgan Phillips about the opportunity to shoot in Canada, Morgan told us of his reaction, ‘I couldn’t say no!’

His dreams of shooting Alberta, Canada were finally coming true, and now it was time to face the hard part: working in freezing weather conditions. However, there is nonetheless a certain warmth that radiates in his photography, as he delicately captured the sun rising above the snow-covered mountains, and even managed to get a candid deer shot.
