After days of heavy rain, was blessed by a moon swept serenade.

In the last few years, Doris and her Nikon D810 have been travelling the wilds solo; sidestepping up the tallest dunes in North America, hiking 211 miles with a final step atop the tallest peak in the lower 48, hiking every marked and unmarked trail around a live volcano, climbing over fallen trees through ethereal gorges, and rolling out of her truck at four in the morning, in icy temperatures, to hike to the top of a lookout for that breathtaking sunrise.

As a Vancouver, Canada-born city girl, Doris has often found her summer months spent in the country; whether in remote corners of British Columbia, or at grandma's house nestled along the colourful Venetian plains in northern Italy, surrounded by the craggy peaks of the Dolomites.

Life took a dramatic twist in 2014, after Doris bumped into a renowned volcano photographer who reminded her of her first love - the full frame camera.

2015 took the next blessed bump; this time with a renowned American Nikon Ambassador, who taught her the art of creating stunning, tack-sharp compositions.

This gift of profound encouragement, has spun her around 180 degrees and is now empowering Doris to pursue full-tilt - life as a Professional Fine Art Photographer.
