Nicolas Dory Canoeing

I am a professional nature and wildlife photographer based in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory (Canada). The Yukon is my home and a state of diverse and stunning natural beauty. I have been a nature photographer for over more than 10 years and enjoyed every minute of it! I was born and raised in France, I came to Canada in 2008 to backpack during a year across the country. I arrived to the Yukon to experience a real winter in the Great North and I felt in love with the territory. To me, it is a real chance to play with the light and to witness the animal’s behavior and the harmony that nature offers, which creates a strong emotional state, a special feeling that I want to share. Photography is also a powerful tool for the advocacy of nature, that’s why I am stepping more into conservation photography, trying to awake minds contributing to save this beautiful nature.
