Experience the quirky missteps, humorous adventures, and professional development of a renowned Canadian photographer in this entertaining memoir.


Join Canadian photographer, explorer, Fellow of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society, father, and writer Dave Brosha as he lays out a touching recollection of a life off the beaten track with a dash of adventure, a dash of determination, a dash of humour, a dash of self-deprecation, and two dashes of ridiculous.

Life shouldn't be about a collection of possessions, but rather a melange of experiences. Dave leaves no holds barred in the retelling of some of his grand (mis)adventures as one of Canada's premier adventure photographers.

Dave Brosha has had exhibitions of his work in the Northwest Territories and elsewhere in Canada as well as in the United States, the United Kingdom, Spain, and Germany. His images have appeared in Photo Life, Practical Photography, Canadian Geographic, Maclean’s, The Independent (UK), The Globe and Mail, The Sunday Telegraph, China News, The Guardian, Tehran Times, Montreal Gazette, Outdoor Photographer and many more. Dave has published three books of photography: Northern Light: The Arctic and Subarctic Photography of Dave Brosha, Southern Light: Photography of Antarctica, South Georgia, and the Falkland Islands, and Tones of Grace: 100 Black and White Images From Planet Earth. He is also the author of a travel memoir, The Art of Misadventure. In addition to having lived in numerous places throughout northern Canada for much of his life, Dave has travelled extensively throughout the provinces and territories of his native country and numerous nations abroad. He and his family live in St. Ann, Prince Edward Island.

Curtis Jones has spent most of his career saturating himself in the polar regions of the planet, dividing his residency between Newfoundland & Labrador and Nunavut, Canada. Working for both the private and the public sectors, he has documented work for environmental initiatives, literacy, Canadian national parks, climate change, and tourism in the Canadian Arctic. Collaborating with world-class athletes, production teams, and local cultures and communities, Curtis has built his career delivering a personal view of the raw, wild, and often untamed. His work has been seen in National Geographic Adventure, Canadian Geographic, The Globe and Mail, , and more. Curtis lives in St. John’s, Newfoundland & Labrador.

    “This book is a treasure trove of adventures missed, captured and earned. Between the humour, the lessons, the wonder and the close calls there is proof of a life lived. The life of a man who takes chances, dreams big and then works to turn dreams into cherished memories — into stories.” —Curtis Jones, landscape and adventure photographer

    The Art of Misadventure is an autobiographical fun ride. Author Dave Brosha provides us with a merry-go-round of escapades, insight, humour and, obviously, misadventure. An engaging journey into the wonder of things that occasionally go horribly wrong for all the right reasons.” —Bill Arnott, bestselling author of the Gone Viking travelogues and A Season on Vancouver Island
