We are Craig Hilts and Scott Aspinall. Landscape photographers, storm chasers, and night photographers with a passion for ‘experience-driven’ nature photography. We aren’t chasing an iconic bucket shot list, but instead value the experience and memories that come from discovery, creativity, and connection with the world around us. With decades of combined experience in storm chasing, exploration, and photography, we’ve mastered the art of experiencing the best that the Canadian Prairies have to offer.
Since 2018, Scott has successfully organized fully booked photography tours in Saskatchewan, Canada. In 2021, he expanded his workshops to provide guests with a comprehensive Canadian prairie photography experience, incorporating landscape photography, night photography, and storm chasing into one unforgettable adventure. The positive feedback from customers, as evidenced by consistent 5-star reviews, attests to the popularity of these tours. In 2023, discussions began between Scott and experienced fellow Saskatchewan photographer, Craig Hilts, on ways to enhance and expand these tours. It was during this time that Living Sky Photography Tours came into existence. We are thrilled to introduce you to the ultimate Canadian prairie experience, featuring great photography, local insights, an abundance of fun, and exploration of the limitless possibilities that one’s creativity has to offer.
Scott Aspinall is a dedicated, self-taught landscape photographer hailing from Saskatchewan, Canada. His photographic passion revolves around nature and night photography, and he frequently dedicates his free time to capturing the stunning landscapes of Western Canada. Landscape photography, for him, is more than just a physical connection to the land; it’s a profound emotional and spiritual connection. For him, the entire natural world signifies something much greater than his own existence. His photos have been featured in a variety of esteemed publications including NASA APOD, Top 50 Epson Pano Awards, Landscape Photography Magazine, and Canadian Geographic.
Over the last 15 years, self-taught photographer Craig Hilts, from Saskatchewan, has devoted himself to capturing the raw essence of nature in the Canadian prairies through his photography.

Each photograph, to him, is a celebration of the joy found in seeking out and witnessing nature’s raw power and beauty.
Craig’s portfolio demonstrates a keen eye for composition, mastery of lighting, and an understanding of the natural world.
