Influenced by a life-long love and respect for our natural world, Ruth focuses on the beauty of Alaska and the Canadian Arctic.  Her approach to photography is founded on a practical understanding of her subjects and photographic technology. By capturing special moments in nature and sharing the stories behind the images she hopes that people can connect and care more about these amazing animals and our environment. 


Working with both digital and film formats and using her knowledge from many years as an award winning portrait photographer Ruth loves to share her experiences with others through her images. 


Teaching children how to create their own vision and capture it on film has been most rewarding . Sparking their imagination and giving them a solid understanding of photography is something Ruth enjoyed in our school district Science and Technology program for several years .


Ruth’s images have been featured by Canadian Geographic, Outdoor Photographer, Travel Manitoba, BBC Earth, Discovery, National Geographic, Nature’s Best Photography,  NANPA, The Boston GlobeThe Atlantic, as well as other international publications.
