OVERVIEW:

 

The seaside villages of Tofino and Ucluelet are nestled along the rugged west coast of Vancouver Island. Tofino is a well known surfing destination, but its rugged beauty is perfect for incredible seascape photography. Ucluelet is south of Tofino and has a magnificent rocky coastline and unique sea stacks, which make ideal subject matter for long exposure and low light photography.

Using colours, shapes and textures to add to your photography skills

WHAT TO EXPECT:

 

Tofino and Ucluelet can have stormy and unpredictable weather, making for dramatic photography, but it’s always good to be prepared for all conditions.  Dry feet are important, remember to wear appropriate footwear.  In case it’s windy, dress in layers.  Bring toques, scarves and gloves. 

 

SKILL LEVEL:

 

It would be great if you know how to use your camera on manual mode using settings like ISO, aperture, shutter speed and the light meter in your camera.  But if not, not to worry, the whole point of the trip is to get to know your camera and improve your photography knowledge and skills.  If you want to chat about this give me a call or send me an email. 

FITNESS LEVEL:

 

We will be driving to most vantage points. The will be some light hiking (walking really) along good trails. We will be walking short distances to each vantage point.  Some stretches might require walking on mildly uneven terrain and up or down stairs or wooden boardwalks.
