Ottawa through the eyes of Taylor Burk

Ottawa through the eyes of Taylor Burk

On his popular Instagram channel, photographer Taylor Burk aims to share meaningful, unique and innovative images that ignite a passion in the viewer to gain a better understanding of our natural world. Born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, and now residing on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, Taylor prefers a loose itinerary which leads to unexpected moments and lasting memories. Taylor loves the unique perspective he gets when riding in a biplane over Ottawa, the feeling of paddling on the region’s waterways and capturing Parliament Hill and museums in a new light. Taylor shares that Ottawa’s Mooshu Ice Cream is “one of the best ice creams I’ve had”.
