Tracy is a Canadian travel photographer currently living in Toronto Canada. She was once a fashion photographer but gave her the glamour of fashion for the culture of traveling after briefly living in Europe in 2010. She has travelled to 30 countries, been an expat two times, and once hitchhiked across international borders. But her favorite place to sleep is still in her childhood home in Vancouver BC.

1. The rest of the World Wonders
I can’t even recall the first time I ever set foot on the Great Wall of China, I was probably 7 or 8 years old. Since then I have been back to the Great Wall a dozen times and I love going back to photograph it every time. Sure, not much changes about the Wall from one visit to the next, but then again, amazing sights like the Great Wall can withstand the test of time.
To date, I have photographed the Great Wall, the Colosseum, and Stonehenge. I’m still making my way around to the other great wonders of the world..
2. The raddest parties + festivals
I never thought I would be interested in photographing festivals and parties, until I spent St. Patricks’ day in Dublin. There was this fresh, young, lively energy throughout the Irish capital and it was captivating. I had a lot of fun that day, both photographing the St. Patrick’s Day parade and just celebrating the occasion in Ireland. Some other parties and festivals on the top of my list are the Half Moon Party in Ko Pha Ngan, Thailand and La Tomatina in Valencia Spain.
3. Hidden cultures in China
I was born in Beijing and lived there for 11 years. I was far too young at the time to appreciate my surroundings and have since made it a point to return to China every other year to learn more about the country. In particular, I have developed a small obsession for the different ethnicities and tribes within China. My ultimate project would be to live with one of these tribes for a month and document their lives in depth.
4. Northern Lights
I once saw the northern lights while I was on a flight from Toronto, we flew over Iceland at roughly 2am when, suddenly, the pilot announced that we were surrounded by this gorgeous moving light. The passengers woke each other up to see this rare sight. Even the flight attendants stopped what they were doing to look at the window. I felt really lucky to have caught a glimpse of the Northern Lights, but I have still yet to be able to capture it on camera.
Well, some day….
