Back in April, while camped out in East Greenland and busy making first ascents and descents, my good friend Tony Hoare came up with plans for a kayaking trip to the remote coast of British Columbia, later in the summer. The idea was simply to paddle there for a week, taking in the beautiful vistas and the incredible local wildlife, sampling everything from orcas to whales, salmons (yummmm!), sea lions, eagles, bears and even wolves. In September, along with my girlfriend Hulya, Tony and his friend Joe joined us for what turned out to be one of the best adventures I’ve had in a long time – a very unexpected fact for something that doesn’t involve mountains at any stage!
I couldn’t wait to find an opportunity to come back to see more of the Johnstone Strait, and I am very happy to report that I have joined Vertical Shot Expeditions to offer a photo workshop/kayak adventure in British Columbia next July. You can read all about dates, prices and details on the dedicated workshop page: Photographing whales and wild Canadian landscapes by kayak.
Along with my Within the Frame workshop around Mont Blanc in June (for which there are still a few spots open), these will most likely be the only two workshops I offer in 2015, so I encourage everybody to let me know quickly if you have any intentions of joining. There is also a new Workshops page on the website, with details of all upcoming trips.
In the meantime, enjoy some of my images from the trip this year!
