About The Photographer

Cropped dsc 0304 new tone cutout  1

My name is Allan Colton and my photos are inspired by the immense diversity of the flora and fauna in Northwest British Columbia. Since my childhood in Ocean Falls, I have explored a myriad of landscapes and have sighted the variety of wildlife found in this beautiful area. During this time spent exploring and living on the West Coast, I developed a passion for capturing both the unique expressions displayed by wildlife and the transitory moments of light and colour in photography.

I am also an avid outdoors man who enjoys hiking, boating, diving, and fishing and therefore find many other opportunities to record my sightings with a camera..
