My name is Shawn Norris, and I've always loved the outdoors. As a graduate of SAIT's Television Production Program I was able to acquire the skills to create moving content. What started as an idea to open more people up to the natural wonders of Alberta became Journey Alberta in August 2015. My biggest inspiration for creating Journey Alberta was "Survivorman" Les Stroud, because when I was growing up I always used to watch his show and in doing so learned a lot about the outdoors.
Since then, Journey Alberta has gone through changes, from video being shot on just a GoPro to my current arsenal of gear that showcases the province in 4K Ultra HD resolution.
As of May 2019, I've been recruited as an Alberta Parks Brand Ambassador, better showcasing my love for the Provincial Parks in the province.
On the horizon, things continue to move forward for Journey Alberta with everything this site has to offer!
