About Pete Ryan

The Canadian prairies has had its share of settlements built with great expectations but soon abandoned amid disappointment. Each location leaving behind clues to a colourful history. From this tour you will gain insightful knowledge on what to look for and how to best photograph a locale’s sense of place just as if you were shooting on assignment for National Geographic.

A 10-year veteran shooter for National Geographic Creative, Pete Ryan is best known for his work of abandoned places. His first foray into the theme was documenting ancient Norse ruins along the northwestern coast of Greenland (1999). The following summer it was a circumnavigation of Ireland by sea kayak that permitted access into shallow waters where structures such as 7th century monastic ruins were hiding from the tourists. Tiring of heavy-duty coastal waters, the journey continued into the desert, most notably Death Valley National Park. It is Death Valley that among his Nat Geo photographer peers he is the resident expert. His archive of Saskatchewan represents his most cherished moments. 

About Chris Attrell

Chris Attrell began his photographic journey in 1996 as a landscape and nature photographic hobbyist. His interest took a more localized turn in 2003 when he started to explore rural Alberta and Saskatchewan, seeking out symbols of the prairie past; grain elevators, ghost towns, and abandoned buildings.

Recognizing the historical significance of these pioneer relics Chris set out to photographically document Saskatchewan’s heritage. Over the last ten years Chris has built and run several successful online photo galleries to showcase both his and others’ images of the Prairie Provinces. His interests have expanded to include night photography, storm photography, and rural-themed portraits. Read More Here
