Take Your Seat, Canada​​

TYS Canada

Our ongoing Canadian photographic expeditions celebrate the diversity of our incredible home country.​ Our chair and cameras continue to venture into each province and territory to create an ever-changing visual tapestry that is Canada.

 

To date, we have captured thousands of images for our Canadian collection, highlighting Canada's stories expressed through architecture, geography, culture, and people. 

A red and white Director’s chair inspires you to see for yourself how incredibly beautiful Canada is. Perhaps, like us, you'll discover a little bit about yourself along the way. 

Welcome to Take Your Seat, Canada!

If you're Canadian, we hope you'll fall in love with Canada all over again. If you're a first time visitor, we hope you'll see why we love Canada. In either case, we hope you'll be inspired to get out there to discover what makes Canada not just our home, but our heart.

​​

Canada's mountains, forests, plains, and coastlines are indescribably beautiful on their own. Together, however, they make this country breathtaking.

 

Canada's natural diversity, melded with the unsurpassed diversity of its people, reflects the harmony of the world in one place. The totality of Canada not only reflects each of us but cannot be complete unless we see ourselves as part of its story.

Let's honour the town we come from.

"The annual Na-Me-Res Powwow shares an ancient connection to Mother Earth. Our chair and all of Toronto are invited to embrace a history that transcends the past. What once was remains the present as we are honoured to watch a living tradition unfold in the heart of the city. One community reaches out to us all. Together, we honour Toronto."

'We see a black bear, perhaps Winnie’s Grandson, ambling along the roadside. We catch a moose considering a road crossing. Wildlife is everywhere. We feel a bond with Nature often forgotten in the city.'
