Ambassador PAUL ZIZKA
Paul is an award-winning mountain landscape and adventure photographer based in Banff, Alberta.
From the peaks of the Canadian Rockies to iceberg-laden seas off the coast of Greenland, Paul’s journey to capture the “under-documented” is a testament to his passion for exploration, his creative vision and fierce sense of determination. These qualities, combined with his keen eye for unique compositions, have resulted in an exhaustive portfolio of cutting-edge images.
Whether it’s wading waist-deep into a glacier fed lake or chasing auroras from dusk til dawn, Paul is known for an adventurous spirit that draws him to the extraordinary. Highlighting his collection are his signature self-portraits, a wide range of mountain adventure images and compelling landscapes from around the globe.
Passionate about passing on his love for photography, in June 2016 he and fellow photographer Dave Brosha launched OFFBEAT, a new company that features an online community for photographers, as well as workshops in far-flung locations. He is also the Photo Editor for Crowfoot Media Inc., curating images each year for their premier publication, the Canadian Rockies Annual.
Paul lives in Banff, Canada, with his wife, writer Meghan J. Ward, and their daughter Mistaya.
