We are pleased and excited to have Boomer return to the Great Bear Rainforest. This tour is an exciting opportunity to develop your digital photographic abilities while experiencing the stunning beauty and abundant marine life of the BC's Great Bear Rainforest from the comfort of the Columbia III. From remote surf swept beaches to the steep sided glacier carved fjords, the Great Bear area is BC's premier wilderness destination. In addition to the marine life we hope to find some grizzly bears feeding in the spring estuaries amongst the purple lupines!
Digital photography has revolutionized the way we all take pictures. From the composition of the photo to the manipulation of the data and enhancement techniques after the image is captured there is a tremendous amount to learn. In the relaxed, informal atmosphere of the Columbia III, Boomer Jerritt will discuss all aspects of photographic technique and review your photos from each day's outing. All skill levels are welcome, the only pre- requisites being a love of nature and an inquisitive spirit.
Boomer Jerritt has been involved in the Photographic industry for the past 25 years, he is primarily a recreation and lifestyle photographer and his commercial work can be found in publications throughout North America. Boomer has also directed much of his efforts and experience into photo education and has also taught at the college level for over ten yrs, he also leads photo- tours and workshops throughout Vancouver Island and British Columbia's Central coast. Boomers latest adventure has led him to the Antarctic where he is a regular Photographer in Resident aboard a polar cruise ship. At present Boomer's images can be found in stock collections including All Canada Photos, Getty images, AGE Fotostock and others.
