“I love the magic that happens when a beautiful moment is captured!!”


Michael Hintringer

     The Rocky Mountains lured Michael to Canada as a 17-year-old from Austria for a summer vacation in 1980. He was asked by his uncle Hans who lived in Banff what he’d like as payment for having helped for a few weeks during that summer at a remote lodge. He innocently replied “A camera so I can document the incredible beauty of the Canadian Rocky Mountains for my friends back in Austria”. That was the beginning of a wonderful life capturing images of scenery and people as Michael had a natural eye for composition, light, and artistic direction. He worked in many capacities including as a chef at other remote lodges until his move to Kelowna in 1991.


    Fast forward to 1993 and Michael’s passion is still in photography as art & creating the best possible images while taking numerous seminars, courses, and workshops as a professional photographer. He spent the next 15 years specializing in ‘wedding art’ with his partner Suzanne, and both became award-winning photographers in the  very rewarding & passionate field of wedding photography.  


   In 2007, a new direction resulted in the restructuring of the business which has Micheal and SuZanne specializing in promotional, corporate events, architectural,  business, commercial.   

    You’ll often see Michael in his cycling or hiking gear as his love and personal endeavors & motivations include road cycling and hiking which started many years ago through bike touring and hiking in Europe and in the Canadian Mountains as well as operating as a ‘tour guide’ for Canadian, American, and German clients in Europe.. His natural strength and stamina has brought him much success in the 2006 TransAlp 7-day Road Race, and many other Austrian day races. His love of riding definitely shows with his ear-to-ear smile when he’s climbing any mountain pass, but is especially accentuated when he’s riding with in the Dolomitiis of northern Italy, especially when he’s climbing his favorite, Passo Pordoi!!


Michael and SuZanne's other mountain passions include multi-day backpacking in the Canadian Rockies and hiking hut to hut in the European Alps. .  


   Michael and SuZanne's daily favorite pastime is enjoying their afternoon cappuccino and tea with homemade cookies &/or cake !
