BIO - Nicholas Taffs

  • All Smiles


Welcome, and thank you for taking the time to browse my gallery. I am a proud father of my daughter Olivia, and husband of my loving wife, Tanya. Based out of Airdrie, Alberta, I am fortunate to have unlimited potential for capturing the natural world. Landscapes from mountains, waterfalls, prairies, alpine lakes and semi-arid deserts are within an afternoon drive of my front door.

Photography is the way I express how I see the world. I love to explore new places and experience new challenges along the way. From a technical aspect, photography has always been a challenge for me. I am a stubborn person, proud to be self-taught. Every lesson learned has been the hard way. I feel this is what gives me the drive to wake up on those early mornings to hike through waist deep snow or endure sleepless nights to photograph the northern lights. Combining the endless learning opportunities, with the luxury of experiencing the diversity of our natural world is why I embrace photography. 

The biggest struggle for me however, has been learning how to slow it down and soak it in. Getting out with my camera has taken me to so many places I never would have dreamed of. It has given me a different way to appreciate my surroundings. I thrive off of facing my fears, travelling to new destinations, and meeting great people. Everywhere I go I now have a tendency to see things in a new perspective that I never would have noticed before my introduction into the world of photography.  

If you have any questions or interest in my work, feel free to drop me a line anytime. Thank you for your interest in my photography. 

Sincerely, 


Nick Taffs
