Today, we’re featuring a wonderful series from film photographer Elouise Paabo that is the perfect start to the winter season. Elouise captured the quiet snow-covered moments as winter settled on the Canadian towns of Banff and Revelstoke. Here is more from Elouise about photographing winter on film…

I have often retired my film camera during the winter months and dedicated my time to skiing. I’ve always had this preconceived idea that winter is far too dark, cold, and simply not as aesthetically pleasing and colorful as the vibrant summer months in Canada.

The shoulder season before winter starts is usually a time of patiently waiting for the ski hill to open. This particular shoulder season was even quieter than usual due to closures from Covid, so I decided to try something different and take my film camera out into the snow. It was a great excuse to wander around with friends and capture the beauty of the crisp white snow in these small mountain towns with a newfound love and appreciation for it all.
