A couple of years ago, we decided to give ourselves a weekly gift. We signed up to receive emails that feature the photographs of a colleague of ours, Amar Athwal. Amar lives and works in Banff for Parks Canada, and is a wizard with a camera. The weekly photos he sends out are always a welcome sight in our inbox.
Amar explains how he took up his hobby: “Some eighteen years ago I started to take pictures while on hikes, today photography is the way I experience nature and it's the way I capture the moments I come across.” His photos are the culmination of a lot of experience, a lot of hard work, and a very good eye.
If you want to give yourself an early Christmas present, without spending a penny, you can sign up for Amar's weekly “Moments” by e-mailing him at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, for a sneak preview, try his website.
