Summit Series of Photography Workshops

Summit Great Bear Rainforest

British Columbia, Canada

Photography has the power to tell a story and to affect conservation. Although we may see and photograph bears, this tour is not about getting frame-filling shots of bears; it’s about engaging with and documenting the countless things that make up this ecosystem, from the large, luminous jellyfish, to the fin of a humpback whale scything the water, to the salmon skeletons found deep in the forest, picked clean. Photograph sweeping vistas of valleys carved by glaciers, hemlock trees dripping with “old man’s beard.” Venture into old-growth rainforest and trek into valleys marked by meadows of wildflowers and meandering streams. Learn from the First Nations people working hard to conserve this area, discovering what the threats are what they’re doing to combat them.

Faculty: Michael Forsberg, Melissa Goo
