Located in one of the top wildlife hotspots on the continent, the Vancouver region and its surroundings on the British Columbia coast are home to some spectacular species. With such an incredible abundance of wildlife, it is no surprise that the parks in the region are also popular with photo enthusiasts and wildlife lovers, who visit from near and far. 

Join wildlife photographer Liron Gertsman for an in-depth wildlife photography workshop, going over tips, tricks and techniques for wildlife photography that can be applied regardless of your camera of choice, smartphones included. The program will also include a photo walk through the gardens and an overview of post-processing techniques to help make your wildlife photos shine. You will want to bring a camera and a laptop (optional) if you'd like to follow along with a photo editing tutorial. 

Online pre-registration is required. Image by Liron Gertsman.
