Renowned wildlife photographer Boomer Jerritt is coming to speak to the Ladysmith Camera Club, and members of the public, about his experiences photographing wildlife in Canada’s Arctic region.
Jerritt has been immersed in lifestyle and wildlife photography since 1990. He has completed three regional photography books, and currently contributes photos to a host of stock photo agencies. Jerritt has taken photos in both the Antarctic, and the Arctic. He’s now using his photography to speak about climate change.
“I have been up there five times now, and these trips have changed my outlook on our world and the fragility of these northern regions,” Jerritt said. “[I want to] use my photographs to bring attention to these increasingly sensitive regions and the wildlife involved.”
Along with the awareness and education component, Jerritt’s 90-minute presentation will touch on photographic techniques, and the challenges of capturing photos in extreme environments.
Jerritt’s presentation is August 27, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm at Hardwick Hall, 232 High Street, Ladysmith. Everyone in the community is welcome, camera club members get in free, and non-members pay a $5 drop in fee.
