"I’m going to keep this introduction short and sweet. I was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, and I’ve been moving around and travelling ever since. Having said that, Whistler has been my home base since 2001. When people ask me what I like taking photos of, I always find it a hard question to answer. It’s because I like taking photos of anything, at any given time: I like colour; I like texture; I like people; it’s whatever catches my eye. With so many interesting colours and shapes in this world, I make sure to take my camera(s) with me at all times–that way I can document all of the amazing places I go to, and see how I perceived them at that moment in time." - Ross Tripp
