LIVE LIFE’S ADVENTURE, ONE MAP TACK AT A TIME!
Who is Map-Tacs?
Map-Tacs Photography is a Sooke, British Colombia based business providing photographic and risk management services to adventure travelers. The company was Ray McKenzie’s idea which represents his love of nature, motorcycles, adventure, and photography and combining them into a life-altering career! Ray served with the Canadian Military for 18 years and the Calgary Police Service for 14 years, creating the mantra that he lives by:
“Life is worth living to the fullest, measured moment by moment…not on what was…or what could be.”
Official photographer for Neale Bayly (Star of Tripping on Two Wheels, and Neale Bayly Rides) and Anthony Carrino (HGTVs Kitchen Cousins and Cousins Undercover) in South Africa. Photographer for Neale’s Arctic Circle feature in Cycle Canada Magazine, Motorcycle Classics and Overland Journal. He provided the image for the MAVTV banner advertising for Neale Bayly Rides Peru, as well as images in support of Wellspring International Outreach projects.
Ray’s passion for photography comes from the realization that life is a gift. He loves the journey that allows him to absorb his surroundings, embracing the ability to find something truly wonderful and inspirational in almost any environment through his lens. Ray believes that the still image can be used as a medium to help understand others, to understand nature and to diminish the borders that divide us. He is also a hard core motorcycle enthusiast who has rode all over North America, Central America and Europe.
Ray provides photographic, risk management, and low profile security services for adventure travelers, companies, and tours. Contact Ray for details.
