'Beautiful Alberta' Book by Mike Grandmaison

'Beautiful Alberta' was released just a few weeks ago. During the summer of 2014, I was commissioned by Firefly to produce a coffee table book about Alberta. Although I had an extensive collection of Alberta images already in my image library from numerous trips to the province as well as having lived there for 7 years, I did not hesitate a single minute to spend 3 weeks traveling throughout Alberta in August 2014 to capture even more images. I covered the region north and south and east and west, discovering new territory all the while.

 

Upon my return, I selected a number of images and sent them to the publisher. Besides writing an introduction and captions to the images, I also sourced a few images from other photographers for the publisher, which include images from colleagues John Marriott and Gail Foster among a few others.

 

The book is available in books stores and online. On Friday evening, October 6, I will launch 'Beautiful Alberta' at McNally's in Winnipeg at 7 PM.
