About the speaker

Scott Forsyth is Canadian Geographic’s newest photographer-in-residence, who specializes in the imagery and stories of the Canadian landscape. His book The Wild Coasts of Canada features inspiring landscapes along all three ocean coastlines of Canada, from the Pacific’s Haida Gwaii, to the Arctic’s Northwest Passage, to the fjords of Labrador and Newfoundland.
As a naturalist/photographer, Scott works aboard expedition ships journeying to many of Canada’s most remote coastal regions each year. His lifelong mission to continue exploring the fabric of the Canadian landscape and its inhabitants, while sharing this with the public, has earned him a fellowship in both the Royal Canadian Geographical Society and the New York City based Explorers Club.
An award-winning photographer, Scott has twice earned the distinction of Photographic Artist of the Year – Alberta, from the Professional Photographers of Canada, and holds the designation of Master Photographer from Master Photographers International.
Dedicated to both geographical education and land conservation, Scott is a longtime Nature Conservancy of Canada supporter. Through Canadian Geographic’s speaker series Can Geo Presents, Scott speaks frequently sharing the sights and stories of the Canadian landscape in communities and cities across Canada.
In addition to his photographic endeavors Scott works as a family physician in Calgary, Alberta. He is also a civil aviation medical examiner for the Ministry of Transport, as well as clinical lecturer at the University of Calgary’s Cumming School of Medicine.
