Hello Salmon Arm, I’m Evan Buhler, and I’ll be the new photographer at the newspaper.

No, I don’t wear a hat, nor do I have distinctive round glasses or a moustache like James Murray’s.

I am, however, a recent photojournalism graduate from the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT) in Calgary. My passion for photography was sparked at a young age by my Auntie Bev.

I can still hear the distinctive shutter of her Nikon clicking away at family gatherings. My first camera was a birthday present, and I remember taking it everywhere, particularly shooting out the window from the backseat of the family van on our many road trips across Canada and the U.S.

Born and raised in Calgary, I spent most of my spare time either walking around the city or trekking in the Rocky Mountains, always with my camera in tow. When I wasn’t out shooting, I was busy playing multiple sports. For 15 years I laced up the skates, consistently playing at a high level, while also dabbling in soccer, volleyball, badminton, and everything in between. Because of my love for sports, I will also take over the sports coverage.

I am thrilled to start this new chapter in my life, especially in Salmon Arm, and I look forward to keeping up the high standards already established at the newspaper.
