Whistler is a place where natural beauty, photography, and lifestyle merge into a fantastic all-season playground. Mother Nature was kind to the Whistler Valley, and all photographers from the casual tourist to the rugged professional literally find an endless array of subjects, scenes, and landscapes to capture. No two days are ever the same thanks to the shifting seasons and the occasional storm that blows in off the Pacific. A literal myriad of differing cloud formations, lighting, and mountain backdrops tantalize the lens.
Whistler is also a place where capturing a scene involves living the scene, whether one had to mountain bike, ski, or hike to the setting of choice - if you want it, you have to live it! And often the best photos are of those living the life and obviously loving it, with the landscape providing the dramatic backdrop. In short, Whistler life and its environs were born to be photographed.

Whistler Life can mean many things to different people: it can mean barreling down the Bike Park on Whistler mountain jumping logs, rocks and creeks, or as peaceful as relaxing on the Araxi Patio over a late lunch sipping the finest Okanagan, BC, wine. Whatever your pace, Whistler has something for you. As seen in the pages of Whistler Traveller Magazine (www.whistlertraveller.com), both locals and visitors are free to define what Whistler Life means to them.
The adventurous often find Zip Trekking through Whistler’s old growth forests or taking one of Canadian Snowmobile’s backcountry adventures as an excellent way to unwind and live the Whistler Life, while others hop on horseback at Pemberton Stables to see the sights at a slower pace.
One can also take a step back in time and see what Whistler Life meant to the first Native inhabitants of the Whistler Valley. At the Squamish Lil’wat Cultural Centre, in Whistler, you can learn the art of weaving cedar baskets from Darla John, one of the very few who still have that knowledge, or see incredible native art and even a full scale cedar-hulled canoe.
For families, whistler life could not be better, it is a kids paradise. From biking the Valley Trail, to swimming at Rainbow Lake, or taking advantage of the Whistler Kids ski programs, the adventures are endless. Also, take advantage of Meadow Park Sports Centre providing a children’s swim complex as well as skating rink, perfect on those days when the aforementioned Pacific storms blow in.
If you are currently reading this on your computer in a crowded office or simply wishing to get away, take the time and visit. Experience the mountains, witness the spectacular scenes, live the life, and most importantly bring your camera! - or better yet, contact Joern at www.whistlerlife.com and purchase one of his many amazing images.
Even if you cannot always be up here, a memory of the experience can be taken with you!
