Pioneer in Photography

George Brybycin Receives CAPA Excellence in Photography Medal

George Brybycin was a Canadian photographer and mountaineer whose pioneering contribution to the visual heritage and ecology of the Canadian Rockies is worthy of national recognition. George had been nicknamed the ‘Ansel Adams of the Canadian Rockies.’

George devoted his life to photographing mountains, resulting in a prolific historical record of everything from the majestic valleys to the heavenly peaks of the Canadian Rockies. George’s determination, mental and physical stamina – at times taking great personal risk sleeping on mountaintops in sub-zero temperatures to capture sunrise and sunset shots, will likely never be surpassed!

George was a humble man who has self-published fifty-six books. He was not driven by riches but by the pursuit of his love of photography, and mountaineering; and his passion for nature, wildlife, and the ecology. His books are how he shares this love with others.

George Brybycin (left) was awarded CAPA’s Excellence in Photography medal by Michael Squance (Club President) at the Calgary Camera Club’s annual general meeting on May 24.  Sadly George passed away in June. You can read more about George is this tribute to him .
