Peter O'Hara is an award winning photographer and filmmaker based in the Canadian Rockies. The majority of his early creative career was spent working in the Canadian television industry, providing the fortunate opportunity at a young age to travel the world while developing his skills as a cinematographer, editor, and photographer.
With these skills, he began working on branded projects with agencies and brands such as, Ikea, Buick and Lexus before beginning to focus his expertise in television development collaborating with companies such as Disney, HGTV, Discovery Channel and The Property Brothers. While these projects allowed for personal and professional growth, after 10 years in the industry, he was ready to take on a new challenge.
Though he always loved his time spent abroad, it wasn't until spending two months travelling in New Zealand that he discovered his love and passion for outdoor adventure content creation. Through this realization the course of his career naturally shifted, and he began to invest more time learning how to improve his skills and the art of adventure story telling. He is advanced drone certified through Transport Canada, and hopes to further enhance these stories by taking to the skies.
