Global Chorus – Contributing Photographer

I am absolutely honoured to have my nature photography showcased in Todd MacLean’s spectacular new book Global Chorus (release date – October 31, 2014).  This project is extremely meaningful to me, and I’m excited about all the positive attention it is bringing to such vital issues and worthy causes. Indeed,  all proceeds from sales of Global Chorus will be distributed to a select group of organizations helping to recover, protect and sustain life on Earth: The Jane Goodall InstituteThe David Suzuki Foundation and The Canadian Red Cross.

Todd has put together a truly amazing piece of work, and I am proud to be a small piece of such an important achievement.

From the Publisher:

Global Chorus is a remarkable, illustrated collection of 365 daily meditations around some very large and increasingly crucial themes:

“Do you think that humanity can find a way past the current global environmental and social crises? Will we be able to create the conditions necessary for our own survival as well as that of other species on the planet? What would these conditions look like? In summary, then, and in the plainest of terms, do we have hope, and can we do it?”

The contributors include writers, environmentalists, spiritual leaders, politicians, professors, doctors, athletes, business people, farmers, chefs, yogis, painters, architects, musicians, TV personalities, humanitarians, children, concerned students and senior citizens, carpenters, factory workers, activists, CEOs, scientists—essentially people who have something passionate and insightful to say about humanity’s place on Earth. Well-known people on the list include environmentalists such as David Suzuki, Paul Hawken and Jane Goodall; scientists such as Stephen Hawking and Edward O. Wilson; personalities such as Jamie Oliver, Maya Angelou, Les Stroud and Bruce Cockburn; humanitarians such as Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu; political figures such as Mikhail Gorbachev, Justin Trudeau and Elizabeth May; writers like Temple Grandin, Farley Mowat and John Ralston Saul; and spiritual leaders like His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet and Lama Surya Das. The vast majority of the contributions contained within Global Chorus are completely original, with some coming from public speeches or previously published sources.

All contributors to this fundraising book have generously and graciously donated their time and efforts.

Matt & Laura – Customer Feedback!

Matt and Laura’s wedding in gorgeous Chester, Nova Scotia was one of my favorite weddings, ever. I loved how laid back their wedding was, and how all day you could really feel the love – that they have for each other, for their friends and for their families. It was such a joyous, fun wedding to be a part of. I was thrilled to receive this wonderful message from the lovely couple:

The photos are truly amazing. You captured our wedding day better than we ever could have imagined. Going through the folders of photos allowed us to relive the day in a way we never thought possible. All the big moments were captured and we felt all those emotions over again. The nighttime photos (specifically the sprinkler ones) are absolutely stunning. The colors just pop. Your paparazzi photo of us from the woods made me throw my arms in the air because of a ‘no way’ moment I was having. And then I asked myself, what do all the previous compliments have in common? They were all recommendations made by you! (sneaking out at night. Making us head back to get the sprinkler photos when we noticed they turned on). I don’t think we could ever thank you enough with what you’ve provided us with. Our one ‘want’ we asked you to provide us with in our pre-wedding meeting was for you to ‘take charge’ and boy did you ever deliver. You better continue being a photographer because you have a gift my friend.

Myself, Laura and our families are ecstatic with how they came out and just the pure amount of photos is insanely awesome.

Talk to you soon, Stefan! And again, thank you so much for everything!

With the utmost jubilation,
Matt & Laura
