Paul Zizka

CanGeo Travel Ambassador and Photographer 

 

From the peaks of the Canadian Rockies to iceberg-laden seas off the coast of Greenland, Paul’s journey to capture the “under-documented” is a testament to his passion for exploration, his creative vision and fierce sense of determination. These qualities, combined with his pursuit of fresh perspectives and a deep love for the landscape, have resulted in an ever-growing portfolio of cutting-edge images.

Whether it’s wading waist-deep into a glacier-fed lake or chasing auroras from dusk til dawn, Paul is known for an adventurous spirit that draws him to the extraordinary. Highlighting his collection are his signature self-portraits, epic mountaineering moments, dreamy astrophotography images, as well as a window into some of the most remote corners of the planet.

Paul’s images have been featured on countless book covers and in a variety of highly regarded publications, including National Geographic, Maclean’s, Alpinist, the Huffington Post, The Guardian, Canadian Geographic, Islands, PhotoLife, and explore magazine. His client list includes leading national and global brands such as Canon, Apple, Dell, Arc’Teryx, Panasonic and MEC.

RCGS Ambassador and Award Winning Photographer 

 

Javier Frutos is the creative and brand director of the RCGS and Canadian Geographic. In that capacity, he regularly works with both professional and amateur photographers, including members of the Can Geo Photo Club, to evaluate their images and help them improve their skills. He is also an award-winning photographer whose assignments have seen him travel extensively in Canada, Europe, the U.S., Mexico and numerous other locations around the world.

Javier has been an RCGS travel ambassador since 2017 and he regularly travels on editorial assignments for Canadian Geographic.

“My favourite photographic subjects are unique and remote places,” Javier says. “To have the opportunity to go to places that not a lot of other people have the chance to visit is very special. I cherish sharing those places with others through the camera lens. When you travel to a new place, you have to do some research and learn more about that location. Once you know more about the wildlife, habitat or culture it makes the photographic process so much more interesting.”

Jenny Wong

RCGS Ambassador and Storyteller

Currently, her personal passion lies in using her craft to spread awareness about the frontlines and last lines of climate change, the Arctic.

Jenny is a Fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society.
