Roam Wildlife Imagery – Roam Transit

Roam Wildlife Imagery and Bus Wraps

Roam transit buses are the most beautifully wrapped buses in the country, and we're proud to tell you more about the photographers who have contributed to each of our buses!

Did you know, all the wildlife images used on Roam buses are of animals living and roaming in the Bow Valley, and are taken by local wildlife photographers.

Below you'll find a listing of the photographers who have contributed to the Roam wildlife imagery bus wraps. We encourage you to find out more about the photographers and the wildlife they help to protect through their amazing work.

Jason Leo Bantle
Jason began his photography career while conducting biological research on different species of carnivores in Canada’s central Arctic. He completed his Master of Science research project on the Arctic Fox, meanwhile falling in love with the beauty of Northern Canada. During Jason’s masters degree research at the University of Saskatchewan he began teaching biology labs and working as an eco-guide. He guided trips to photograph polar bears, beluga whales, grizzly bears, black bears and orca whales.

His growing desire to share his experiences with others ultimately led him to a career in wildlife photography. Jason’s images are all from Canada and Alaska. Jason opened his first independent gallery at the entrance of Prince Albert National Park, Saskatchewan in the spring of 2005. Over the years he has expanded his business, opening galleries in Saskatoon and Waskesiu, Saskatchewan, as well as Canmore and Banff, Alberta. Jason’s goal is to educate and stir an appreciation for Canadian wildlife, thereby aiding in its preservation.

Virtually all of Jason’s images are captured in the wild using 35mm film. No filters or digital enhancements are used on any of his prints.

Andrew Hardingham
Born and raised in Banff Alberta, Andrew has lived his life exploring many of the world’s mountain ranges as a professional athlete/big mountain snowboarder. This lifestyle allowed him to explore his passion of film & video from a young age.

Since then he has submerged himself in video and photo projects like Sandbox films and in many international and national editorial publications like Snowboarder, Transworld and The Fly Fishing journal to name a few he has also worked on Digital media for His love of Fly-fishing started 15 years ago and helped him discover the philosophy that “fly-fishing is less about the fish and more about where the fish will take you”. With that in mind, Andrew began hiking to the farthest reaches of Banff, Japer, Yoho and Kootenay National Parks to not only explore, but also write, photograph and tell the stories of his adventures.
