Mike Cotton aka Nomads on the Road

I have a passion for travel, photography and the outdoors, with a particular emphasis on mountain culture. Together we can inspire.

My name is Mike Cotton and I am a travel photographer and writer from England. My work has been featured in various publications including Crowfoot Media, Fernie Fix, Kootenay Rockies, Flight Network and Matador Network. I have worked with brands such as Destination BC, Tourism Fernie, Expedia Canada and Guide to Iceland. I am also a member of the Professional Travel Bloggers Association.
