Hi, I'm Luca!

Welcome to my adventure journal! A photographic collection of my journey through the Canadian Rocky Mountains and around the world. As my skills and love for photography continue to grow, I wanted to create an archive of my memories. Included are helpful tips for novice adventurers looking for new ways to explore the great outdoors and the opportunities that await!

While I grew up riding bikes, going on picnics in the mountains, and camping with my family, I never considered myself particularly outdoorsy. Ironically, my attachment to the Rockies continued to deepen as I grew older. Nowadays, the mountains represent a transformative period of my life where I challenge myself to push past my limits.

On a more personal level, I want to foster a source of inspiration for others looking to challenge themselves. This may mean sparking new approaches to photography, trying new routes, or simply feeling pumped to get outdoors. We have but to seize the stoke before us.
