Capture wildlife, macro, landscape and night photography with our sessions running throughout the summer.

Into the Wild SUMMER Photography Sessions

It’s one thing to get out in nature, and it’s another thing to capture some of the beauty in a photograph. Through four sessions, professional photographer and our Grouse Mountain Wildlife Manager, Devin Manky, will provide important technical and artistic “pointers” and take a small group to desirable locations at which to capture natural scenes. 

Each session has a different focus: 
June – Wildlife (complete)
July 27 – Macro
August 24 – Landscape
September – Night Sky/Long Exposure

Time: 6-8pm for the June, July and August sessions; 7-9pm for the September session.

While Devin has made a name for himself as an action & sports photographer, his roots are in wildlife and landscape photography. Some of his most beloved images are those of Grinder and Coola and views from atop Grouse Mountain. Devin is a soon-to-be father, and his recent work includes maternity photography featuring his beautiful wife.
