Rocky Mountain Photography ( the beauty to capture )

Rocky Mountain Photography , more specifically the Canadian Rockies photography is widely known as some of the most picturesque in the world. I live here because they captured my heart and continue to enthrall me everyday. So, What are the Canadian Rocky Mountains known for? What makes them different?

These mountains are very different in appearance – because of their geology. They are made up of layers of sedimentary rock like limestone and shale. They are , well – quite “rocky” as you gaze at them. There glaciers hanging from the peaks, jaw dropping turquoise coloured lakes and rivers, bountiful wildlife , and Grand scenes that Banff Landscape Photography has become known for. The icons of the Canadian Rockies are captured by hobbyists and professionals – most ( by the Professional), in high resolution images, because the scenes that are displayed by nature , this Canadian Rockies Art, is so memorable it imprints the mind deeply and images , without high resolution ( and good technique), may disappoint when viewed on a smart phone rather than a large print! This is why I feature Canadian Rocky Mountain photography for sale on my website.

Rollin, Rolling, Rolling in…

Canadian Rocky Mountain pictures, not all, but many, require a big sensor and big print to convey the scope, grandeur and beauty that imprints into one’s mind as look out at the scene before you. Many of my images are in the Panorama Format and are offered in very large prints to properly display the beauty of this special place. Black and White pictures of Banff are also highly valued Canadian Rockies Art.

Canadian Rockies Art can be, at times, constricted to such places as Moraine Lake, Lake Louise, and Emerald Lake. And yes, these are , in themselves stunning and representative of Banff National Park landscape. However, the park system, Banff National park landscape, covers 6,641 square Kilometers or 2,564 Square Miles!! That is a LOT of area to see. Banff landscape photography offers so much you need more than a day or two to see it! You can easily fill up a two week vacation with stunning sights and still have lots more to see.

Published by Ron Hallam

Gita Photos is a Landscape Photography Studio based in Banff, Alberta and Banff National Park a World Heritage Site. Hi, my name is Ron Hallam. I am truly blessed to be able to live in and work in this stunning location; Banff, Alberta. I closed in and renovated the deck of my condo to be an editing studio. The studio is paneled in Alberta cedar. The main part of the ‘studio’, though, is the Banff National Park and the Canadian Rockies! My work invloves hiking through the Park to find locations where the natural wonders of the Rockies are illuminated by the natural light of the moment. As one client testimonial put it, I want to offer you “ an instant escape to someplace magical” ( Jane Fedosoff, Toronto, Ontario) Another client commented “Ron's photographs are not just beautiful images of the Canadian Rockies. They are Ron himself – his life experiences, his love for this place and his eye for detail- that show a depth and unique understanding of this special place we are lucky to call home.” (Phil Monod, Banff Alberta) I’m in the second half of my life. I spent the first half running a ski shop and skiing and hiking in and around Banff National Park. I tinkered with photography for a long time - first with disposable cameras in the 70's. Needless to say the disposable left everything to be desired and I walked away wanting more, much more. Then, for one special hiking trip to Nepal, I purchased a proper SLR camera. The SLR provided better images, but I still needed time to learn and study and work at the craft of image making and film processing. Meanwhile, the time commitment necessary to run a shop (and my shop was a passion) meant work gave me limited spare time. That translated into playing when I could, took precedence over study of camera, technique and processing. So, upon retiring - for my second half, I wanted to stretch and work my “creative muscles”. I got down to focused and dedicated photographic endeavor. That started with a new DSLR. Then I began to study image making seriously. I learned about the digital way of image capture and developing (editing). The Rockies Landscape is so grand that larger Panorama shots are a favorite for me to create while, but as you can see from my work, everything in this magnificent place draws me to capture images of all kinds of landscapes. I like to work in both Color and Black and White and would love to hear which you prefer as your format of choice, and why. Every time I make an image, it is the direct result of letting the “something” inside me come up to the surface, and compel me to record that moment of what I’m seeing and feeling. I want to engage you to see the Rockies, and feel the Rockies exactly the way I do. I want to try to have you try to understand and engage with my perspective, and point you to the exquisite, intricate and profoundly intelligent designer - the God who created this natural world. Then, if you are awed by creation but also perturbed by economic disparities in the world, I hope you will browse the Art Battling Poverty Gallery dedicated to Poverty Relief and assistance for the marginalized. While you and I enjoy the beauty of the Rockies, many are struggling simply to survive. When you purchase my Art from the Art Battling Poverty Gallery (or indeed any image purchase) just tell me to donate to either of the NGO's I work with, at time of checkout. A portion of each sale, 15% – read the ABOUT Art Battling Poverty Tab) will be donated to in your name. Have a browse and find “ A special moment in the Rockies, captured in a print forever”. And when you purchase you won't only have a special print, but you will also be giving Hope to the marginalized.
