Last week I had a great opportunity to spend out in the Gitga’at community of Hartley Bay in BC’s north coast. Thanks to the Coastal Guardian Watchmen Network for having me out there to share what I know about photography, take some photos and get out on the water to experience a bit of what makes this place so fantastic.



The Guardian Network builds capacity among the coastal First Nations of BC to take on increased responsibility in monitoring and management of the incredible wealth of natural resources that make up British Columbia’s stunning coast. Okay, yes that comes across like a tourist brochure… but seriously, the place is pretty amazing – even on grim February days when the arctic outflows can make the mouth of Douglas Channel a cold and choppy stretch of water.


Highlight for me – sea lions hauled out on their favourite rocky islands, bawling out their guttural barks and snorts and growls. Quite a sight. And sound. And smell, yes, that’s… memorable, too.


Oh, and if you’re a photographer looking to experience this part of the world and take some photos, keep the Gitga’at Tourism in mind – they can provide guidance and services to have safe and memorable photo excursions.
