Bio - Alys Shantz Photography


Alys Shantz is an adventure and travel photographer based in Vancouver, Canada.

Throughout much of her adult life, Alys has been traveling around the world, seeking outdoor adventure and experiencing environments and cultures very different from her own through the lens of a camera.

In addition to outdoor pursuits such as skiing, snowshoeing, hiking, kayaking, paddleboarding and backpacking, Alys is also an avid cook, recreating her travels through food with a focus on accessible, scratch-made meals from fresh local ingredients.


Almost all of Alys's images are available in hundreds of sizes, finishes, mountings and framing options with a 30-day, no-questions-asked, satisfaction guarantee on every print. Simply find a photo you love and click "buy" to have it professionally printed and delivered directly to your home or office.

Alys Shantz is nationally accredited in Travel Illustration, Nature, Pictorial/Scenic, Animal Portrait and Night Photography by the Professional Photographers of Canada.
