Based out of Calgary, Alberta, Erik McRitchie's landscape and nature photos are absolutely breathtaking. But it's not just the great outdoors that Erik is amazing at capturing; he also photographs families and weddings. As a way to give back to his community and to lift spirits during the COVID-19 pandemic, Erik started capturing porch portraits free of charge to his community, saying, "It’s been SOOO encouraging seeing so many families laughing and sharing these moments together. These photos won’t make all of our collective problems go away but my hope is that they can shift our focus onto something a little more positive if even just for a few minutes. Who knows maybe these might inspire others to use their gifts to help someone else too!"
