 St. Croix

Since childhood Robert Calnen has always appreciated the natural beauty of Nova Scotia. This appreciation encouraged him to develop his environmental studio in St. Croix on the outer edge of the Annapolis Valley. Among the hemlock trees, green moss and a country stream he brings his patrons close to nature in a truly one-of-a–kind setting. Located on the thirteen acres is a rustic log cabin built by Robert, which is the reception area for this unique outdoor studio.

Whatever location you chose, we can ensure the finest quality imaging.
