My name is Steve Boer and I’m not on Facebook. So far, I have no plans to change that status, which is why I started this blog instead. I currently reside in St. Albert, AB Canada with my wife and our two cats. In the past several years I have gotten re-interested in photography and I wanted a way to share some of my photos with people in a format that would be a little more engaging and easier to follow than my Flickr or 500px pages.
So, welcome here. I won’t promise to post on a particularly regular basis, as I tend to photograph in spurts. However, I encourage you to follow my blog if you find my photos interesting, or if you are just interested in finding out what I’ve been up to on occasion.
All the photographs featured in my blog and more are available for purchase as prints or downloads at Steve Boer Photography. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of my images will be donated to charity in support of our friends who are volunteering at the Seed of Hope in South Africa.
Thank you for following my blog! I love the first sentence on your “About” page. I’m not on Facebook either and use my website to post my photography and happenings in my family’s life. Alberta looks beautiful. I will have to put it on my bucket list of places to visit.
You’re welcome and thanks for visiting here. Yes, Alberta definitely has some places that are well worth the trip to come and see!
Nice photos! Is that a Brazil soccer jersey in your avatar pic? I’m going to the World Cup in June, and would welcome any suggestions.
Thanks! It’s actually a South Africa soccer jersey. I’m afraid I can’t help you with the World Cup, I just got that jersey when we were in SA on vacation and not to see a soccer match.
Cool blog 🙂
Thanks Crazy Guy!
Thanks for the recent visit to/follow of my blog. It led me here and I’ve enjoyed perusing your posts over the past few months. I look forward to seeing more. (Besides, you have cats 🙂 )
Incidentally, I’m going to be heading to the Canadian Rockies (first time for me) in late September: Yoho, Banff and Jasper National Parks are on the itinerary; I’m really looking forward to it.
Thanks Kerry, I got to your actual site through 1001 Scribbles. You will definitely enjoy our national parks and that is a good time of year to go (except for less water in waterfalls).
Thanks, Steve. I’m hoping to catch some color in the aspens (and larches). I’m also hoping to be one of the lucky few to gain access to the Lake O’Hara area in Yoho one day while I’m there. Really looking forward to it.
Steve – I so much enjoy your blog and photos. I have a question – my sister and I are planning to go to Jasper for a few days next May. Is there a place you would recommend for us to stay where we would be a little ways from the town and closer to nature. I’ve been to Canmore/Banff a couple of times but this will be my first time to Jasper. Thanks in advance.
Hi Maralee. Well the beauty of Jasper is how much smaller it is than Banff. You can see wildlife right in town. My wife and I usually stay at http://www.bearhilllodge.com/ it has nice cabins and is walking distance to the town’s main street which is nice if you want to have a few drinks with dinner. We have often seen elk right outside the cabin there. If you don’t mind driving into town there are some other cabin type places a little bit out of town. I haven’t stayed at most of these, so I can’t vouch for them personally.
and finally, if you want to be farther away from town but closer to the hot springs, there is http://www.mpljasper.com/hotels/pocahontas_cabins/
Also of course there are many other hotels right in the town itself. You should also be aware that we have a long weekend in May and things book up pretty quickly so make sure to book well in advance if you will be there around the 21st to 23rd.
Thank you so much for the information. We’re actually going to be there around the 9th of May. We’re looking into booking a place now. I appreciate your help.
No problem, enjoy your stay and bring warm clothes, it can still snow there at that time of year!
I was on Facebook one moth, then I stopped my account! 🙂
Yes, I have no love for FB, but I do get my wife to share my blog posts there….
