Photographer Profile: Peter Carroll

My name is Peter Carroll and I am a Canadian freelance photographer based in Sherwood Park, Alberta. I am primarily a landscape photographer and as such I consider myself quite fortunate to be living in Western Canada. My home is the land of big sky and rich colours. I am surrounded by nature's beauty - from the flat farmland of the Prairies to the majestic peaks of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. I'm also fortunate to live in an area of the world that experiences the diversity of four distinct seasons. The range of subjects and their changes throughout the year make Western Canada a magical playground for me and my camera.

Photography, for me, is an artistic pursuit with endless rewards. The creation of an image is always an exciting journey. It is a powerful experience, for example, to witness the rising of the sun to the call of the loon on glass still lake. The challenge, for me as a photographer, is to use the camera as a tool to record my response to such a moment in time. My goal is to give an image its own voice. It is my hope that my images speak to you of the beauty and wonder of the world around us.
