About The Artist

Danielle Lefrancois is a Canadian nature photographer and educator based in the beautiful Canadian Rocky Mountains in Canmore/Banff, Alberta.


Throughout my life I have always had a passion for Canada and the Canadian landscape.

As a kid I have fond memories of family road trips around Southern Ontario and the East Coast of Canada. I would spend my summers in the small but beautiful Ontario wilderness. I was constantly hiking the Niagara Escarpment, exploring hidden caves, canoeing rivers and wading through streams catching (then releasing) crayfish. Spending the time and being in nature has always felt like home.

Being lucky enough to experience what I did as a child, it has inspired me to become a photographer and capture the big and beautiful Canada in all its wonder.

After 25 years living in the beautiful Niagara region just 20 minutes from the world-famous Niagara Falls, I decided I needed more room to explore and moved to the Canadian Rocky Mountains. It has turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life and I am happy to be able to get back to my childhood love of road trips by filling my days with adventures around one of Canada's most celebrated and spectacular landscapes.
