Nature Photo Workshop on Vancouver Island

March 21, 2022 - March 23, 2022



Herring Spawn on the East Coast of Vancouver Island

At the end of the winter, herring migrate in mass to spawn in shallow waters off the coast of Vancouver Island. This spectacular annual event attracts wildlife such as sea lions, seals, bald eagles, and shore birds, which gather in large numbers. Orcas can sometimes be seen from the shore. Although the exact moment of spawning is unpredictable, the wildlife activity during this period is intense.

What to expect

  • Immerse yourself in a hands-on learning experience with a local photographer, who knows the right times and places for wildlife and landscape photography.

  • Learn about the fundamentals of nature photography, the art of seeing and ethical photography, with a small group of people who share the same interests for nature and photography (limited to 5 participants).

  • Improve your vision and creativity.

The workshop is designed for beginner and intermediate photographers and focus on landscape, nature, wildlife and abstract photography. It takes place in the outdoors only. Each day, we will take short hikes (max. 4 km) on uneven terrain in the forest and the coast. We could take short ferry rides (10 mn) to small islands depending on wildlife activity. Itinerary is subject to changes based on weather condition, wildlife behaviour and interests from the group. Participants are expected to be flexible to the group’s needs.
