Dave Brosha, Yellowknife, Northwest Territories Member Since October 2007 Artist Statement Holding a passion for the world and an eye for the beauty it contains, northern adventure / landscape photographer Dave Brosha is on a continual journey to seek out and capture some of the most extreme, and pristine environments in the world. In addition to living throughout northern Canada for much of his life, Dave - along with his beautiful wife, Erin - have also lived in Asia and have travelled extensively through both the many provinces and territories of their native country and numerous countries abroad.
Despite the fact that Dave has lived a "cautious" life, the unusual continues to seek him out: a major spinal operation as a 12-year old that saw a chunk of his spin fused together; a head-on car accident when he was 16 that left him with two broken legs and a whole new appreciation for "not driving like an idiot"; a frightening night in Taiwan in 1999 in the middle of one of the country's most serious earthquakes ever that made him realize that he's really "a baby in the face of danger"; and a "situation" while working for a telco in the Canadian Arctic that saw him halfway up a telephone pole with three polar bears waiting below. His usual reaction? Fear, panic, hysteria, and a pledge to live a life of shopping malls and television from those moments onwards...but he somehow continues to stumble into what can only be described as "unique" situations without looking back.
Published in numerous media outlets including Up Here, the CBC, the Vancouver Sun, Above & Beyond, and CTV, Dave's impressive client list has included the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, the National Hockey League (NHL), the Montreal Planetarium, and former United States Vice-President, Al Gore (who used some of Dave's images in his international global warming speeches).
