British Columbia’s leading sailing operator Outer Shores Expeditions invites budding shutterbugs to discover one of the most photogenic places on earth with its hands-on photo tour of Canada’s scenic Pacific coast.

 

The five-day Pacific Rim National Park Reserve Photography Tour, taking place April 21–25, from Ucluelet, Britsh Columbia, offers participants opportunities for nature and landscape photography of Canada’s Pacific Rim National Park Reserve as well as tips and tricks to improve their skills from wildlife photographer James Thompson.

 

“The Pacific Rim is a photographer’s dream, especially in early spring when both land and sea are teeming with wildlife, like gray whales, orcas, salmon and black bears,” said Russell Markel, president and captain, Outer Shores Expeditions. “James truly understands how to best capture this beautiful region and the wildlife that call it home.”

 

Throughout the expedition Thompson will provide participants with one-on-one coaching on how to overcome technical challenges and develop new approaches to capturing the open ocean, an ancient coastal rain forest, scenic archipelagos and estuaries and a variety of animals, including whales, dolphins, black bears and bird species.

 

“Partnering with Outer Shores allows me to combine my fascination with the interconnectedness of nature with my love of outdoor adventure,” said Thompson. “The opportunity to expose burgeoning photographers to the many ecosystems of Pacific Rim National Park is quite special, and I cannot wait to board the Passing Cloud again in 2015.”

 

Starting from about $2,300 per person, rates include accommodations on Passing Cloud, a classic schooner featuring a classic West Coast wheelhouse, four private staterooms and a gorgeous main salon, as well as delicious food and transport to photo destinations.
