Celebrating 20 years of Professional Photography

John Schwirtlich Photography



My Background

I grew up in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. My family had a photo studio near Collingwood, Ontario in the 60's and a ski shop/ski school at Chicopee Ski Club in Kitchener.  Photography has always been a part of our family. I started my "professional" photography career in Whistler, BC in 1998. My early  focus was photographing high end homes in Whistler for architects/builders.  I had the opportunity to also work on film sets as the "stills photographer".

I always wanted to become a photographer and combine my passion for skiing with photography.

Now working for the last 20 years as a full time photographer (15 at Mike Wiegele Helicopter Skiing) that dream became reality.

Based in Kamloops since 2004 I shoot a variety of projects that range from Architectural Photography/Portraits/Weddings to Industrial/Commercial and Helicopter Skiing.
