Second Showing “Polar Adventure: Off the Beaten Path”

Thanks to everyone who attended my photo-presentation/lecture “Polar Adventure: Off the Beaten Track” earlier this month, it was great to see so many familiar faces in the crowd!  Due to the popularity of this sold out event, I am excited to offer a repeat presentation on Thursday, February 2nd, 2017 at the Courtenay and District Museum.

As photographer-in-residence aboard the Akademik Ioffe with One Ocean Expeditions, I will be sharing images and experiences gathered from my journey to the wildlife paradise of South Georgia Island and the rich and diverse landscape of the Antarctic Peninsula . In this 1 1/2 hour photo-presentation I will invite you to explore this isolated and extreme region of our planet with it’s foreboding landscape, mountainous icebergs and unique polar wildlife including chinstrap, rockhopper, macaroni, gentoo and adelie penguin colonies, whales, seals and sea birds as they are captured in front of the camera lens in this remote and magical place. See where historic whaling stations still stand, a testament to a bygone era of sealing and whaling and where Shackleton’s epic struggle for survival played out on the shores of Elephant Island and South Georgia!  I’m looking forward to spending this exciting evening with you!!

Admission to the evening is $11 for Historical Society members; $13 for non-members (plus GST). Advance tickets are recommended and can be purchased by phone: 250-334-0686 ext. 5.
The Courtenay and District Museum is located at 207 Fourth Street in downtown Courtenay.
