Troy is the ass for my saddle.

Imagine Mr. Clean with a camera and 30+ years of advanced education and you’ve got Troy.

Troy graduated with a PhD in geography and economics from UCLA. He moonlights from his day job as a professor of geography at Mount Royal University to complete the husband part of the Burnett Photography team.

Troy is “awesome” and that’s a good thing because I can’t fire him.

Troy has a long list of accomplishments to his name—

  • He’s an expert on natural resource conflicts around the world
  • Author of the award-winning books, Natural Resource Conflicts: From Blood Diamonds to Rainforest Destruction Volumes 1 & 2, National Identity Today vol. 1&2, and he’s currently working on a book about the impact of the Covid pandemic on Globalization.
  • Director of the Wildlands Studies Banff National Park Wildlife Corridors Project.

Despite these impressive achievements, most of our neighbours think he cuts wood for a living!

Troy is one of those people who is amazing at everything he does. But don’t get me wrong—I’m the brains & talent of this operation!!!

He loves to answer questions about the region while we are shooting so feel free to ask away.

Be warned, however, he may test you at the end.
