Photography Workshops in British Columbia

British Columbia is a province located on the very west coast of Canada. It is where glaciated mountains stand over the unruly Pacific Ocean. Where Rain forests wrap around cities. Nature shapes and defines culture, and the unbridled wild stretches beyond your wildest imagination.

On my workshops here in British Columbia we will step into the land of the “Group of Seven” painters and capture the essence of the Pacific Northwest. This area has inspired renowned artists and artisans for centuries, artists and artisans who honour the magic of this land who have brought it into the physical realm.

Add together this history, the magic that this land will intoxicate your minds with, and the perfect climate, its sure to prove to you, as it always does with me, why British Columbia has summoned outdoor enthusiasts and photographers from all corners of the Earth.

It is a photographers playground, and I enjoy taking groups on workshops for landscapes, seascapes and some of Canada's most desirable wildlife that photographers want in their portfolio. 

This photo was taken by Simon Pidcock, the captain on one of my Orca Whale tour boats. I just love this image. It perfectly represents what these trips are all about... wildlife, the Pacific Ocean and mountains under the glow of beautiful west coast sun...

Why Come to British Columbia With Me?

I have been travelling to British Columbia for many years now. From the far reaches of the extreme west coast of Vancouver Island to watch the last sunset in North America, to the Fraser Valley for North Americas largest migration of Bald Eagles, to the far reaches of the remote north for Grizzly Bear, guests have been coming on vacation with me for years, going home with images they are proud of. 

Not only do I run Photo Workshops here, I have also called this Province home at one point in time. In total I have been on six photography trips to British Columbia, and some personal scouting trips, not to mention all those weekend excursions I would take when I lived there.

Over the years refined my trips with the best partners in the province to make them perfect for the photographer. My partners for whale and iceberg tours are experienced guides and will get us where Orca and humpback whales are each and every trip. My partners for the accommodations we stay in make my trips some of my most memorable ones because of the staff, the experience, the fun we have, and most importantly to you... the photography opportunities. 

I do my best to try to minimize your time in the vehicle. British Columbia is a vast Province and other companies try to do all the highlights in one trip. Would you rather be out taking photos or sitting for 5 to 6 hours in a car to get to the next location? I think I know the answer to that one... lol... I minimize the drive times as much as possible because I know the hidden photo stops others that aren't as experienced as I am in British Columbia, don't even know exist. 

I also will make sure you are prepared with the right equipment before you leave home. My pre workshop briefings will ensure that you have packed the right clothes, you've got the gear you need and you know where we are going to be photographing during each day of your photography vacation with me. 

All the logistics will be handled, all you have to do is show up, shoot and have fun on vacation. 

Please check out the photos and trips I am running below. I hope you find your next photography vacation here.

2019 British Columbia "Birds Galore" Workshop

Dates: January 6, 2019 to January 11, 2019

Instructors: Jeff Wendorff and Kevin Pepper

This photo workshop is centered on the largest bald eagle migration in North America. Between 2000 to 8000 bald eagles find their way to this area beginning in late October to feed on the spawning salmon. They then stay in the area until later in the winter months to have their young before returning to their summer area in Northern BC and the Yukon.

But there are other bird species we will see as well... owls, song birds, geese and ducks

We have two spots available
