Tweedsmuir Park Lodge offers workshop with renowned grizzly photographer

Tweedsmuir Park Lodge is proud to host internationally acclaimed wildlife photographer Charles “Chas” Glatzer for an exclusive Grizzly Bear Viewing Photography Workshop from September 26 to October 2, 2013, among the staggering backdrop of glaciers, rugged peaks and lush old growth coastal forests that characterize British Columbia’s Bella Coola region.

Every autumn, when salmon return from the ocean to spawn in their rivers of origin, the Bella Coola Valley becomes home to a staggering concentration of grizzly bears. Ursus arctos horribilis – the grizzly. It is the apex predator of the British Columbia coast and capturing this majestic animal in its natural setting through the lens of a camera can be one of life’s most thrilling experiences for both professional and novice photographers.

As the owner of Shoot the Light, Glatzer has led photography workshops around the globe, in locations as diverse as Alaska, Falkland Islands and Kenya. Wildlife photography requires intimate knowledge of animal behavior, technical understanding of light and composition and a willingness to place yourself in a natural setting and await the perfect combination of light, action and beauty.

Glatzer is a master of this art, having led more than 50 bear photography workshops. And, with more than 30 years of field experience and 40 major photography awards to his credit, Glatzer’s images have appeared in National Geographic, Smithsonian, Travel & Leisure, Nature Photographer, Popular Photography and many more international publications.

The workshop is limited to eight guests, giving participants ample opportunity for one-on-one interaction and instruction with Glatzer and up close viewings of grizzlies as they roam the riverbanks and riffles, feasting on salmon in preparation for winter’s hibernation. Throughout the week, nature hikes will be led by an expert guide who will teach guests how to identify bear signs such as claw marks on trees or paw prints in the soft earth. River floats will immerse guests in the bears’ preferred fall habitat where salmon are spawning.
