I am an amateur photographer living in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.

I enjoy photographing the wonders of the world around me; whether that means capturing images of animals and wildlife, scenic natural landscapes, or man-made wonders.

I travel all over Canada in pursuit of this passion and my dream is to one day be able to do this full-time.

Thank you for your interest in my work,
Alyce Taylor

    Nice shot! Raccoons won’t bite you unless you show aggression toward them. I have fed them by hand many times, their just curious. – Ann

    So cool this little bandito! Very nice capture Alyce.

  • LOL…people were screaming at me from behind telling me to get up because he was very interested in my camera and was walking right up to it. They were obviously more scared than I was. Thank you ;)
