Vancouver Island Coast with Dave Hutchison

The Port Renfrew area on Vancouver Island, BC Canada provides an excellent venue for a 4 day photography workshop. I will guide you through the “how to’s” to create images using long exposures, long lenses for landscapes, nightscapes, seascapes, forests, waterfalls and wildlife (when available). I have been to Port Renfrew over 25 times and have a very good knowledge of the area. We will create images in areas such as Botanical Beach (Botany Bay), Avatar Grove, Fairy Lake, Sombrio Beach (and canyon), Parkinson Beach, and few more.

I will also introduce you to “The Four Barriers of Creativity” developed by my workshop partner Shane McDermott. This particular workshop is lead by myself with only 6 participants ensuring ample one on one time.

A meeting space is also reserved for daily images reviews and critiques, as well as, live photo editing lessons from images I have taken during the workshop. This has proven to be a very valuable offering for participants.

The West Coast Trail Lodge will be our base for the 4 days, 3 nights workshop. All other details are listed on my web site.

Story and photos by F. M. Kearney

They had all gathered in the same spot – practically standing shoulder-to-shoulder. When new members joined the group, they were careful in setting up so as not to bang into the legs of the other tripods already planted in their perfectly chosen spots. All the cameras were pointed in the same direction waiting for that special moment.
