The Beauty of Newfoundland, from Rolf Hicker's Canadian Album

Rolf was born in Freising in Southern Bavaria, Germany and has been passionate about photography since his childhood. He became a full time professional photographer once he turned 18. Don't miss to visit rolf's german website: Rolf's Tier- und Naturfotografie.

He travels the world over photographing in remote locations where he captures dramatic impressions of nature, breathtaking scenery, and sensational animal pictures. He is frequently commissioned by governments seeking to increase travel and interest in their countries and has filmed and photographed in North America, South America, Galapagos, Africa, Europe, New Zealand and Asia.

He specializes in North America and has spent more than seven years following the seasons capturing images in Canada, Alaska, and in the USA before moving to British Columbia, Canada

"I'se the b'y that builds the boat
And I'se the b'y that sails her
I's the b'y that catches the fish,
And takes them home to Lizer.

Hip your partner Sally Tibbo
Hip your partner Sally Brown
Fogo, Twillingate, Morton's Harbour,
All around the circle."
"Newfoundland Folk Song, I'se the B'y"
