Photographers offer workshops

Boomer Jerritt and Karen McKinnon will offer two workshops on Hornby Island this year.

PHOTOGRAPHERS BOOMER JERRITT and Karen McKinnon will follow two sold-out workshops with a third Sept. 16 to 19.

Earlier this year, photographer and photo educators Boomer Jerritt and Karen McKinnon joined forces to blend their combined extensive experiences to inspire others with their cameras.

Their first two workshops sold out immediately and the reviews were outstanding, praising the format of two teachers as well as both of them for their enthusiasm, organization, knowledge, and ability to teach and inspire.

“Honestly, we were intrigued to see how we would work together, we know our passion and values are on par and we saw the benefit to the participants of having two experienced teachers, with different styles and sometimes varying ways of explaining things.

“What we found is that we work together beautifully and the dynamic was extremely beneficial and enjoyable to participants,” said McKinnon.

McKinnon, recently a finalist for the Professional Photographer of Canada-BC Photographer of The Year Award for the second year running, is well known for her use of light and the ability to bring out the very best in her portrait subjects.

Jerritt is a lifestyle and recreation photographer and his editorial imagery can be see in various tourism initiatives throughout British Columbia. He has completed two regional photography books and currently contributes to some of North America’s top stock agencies and magazines.

Jerritt and McKinnon have taught numerous workshops for hobby photographer and have extensive experience and a phenomenal reputation teaching at professional photography colleges.

With over 40 years experience between them, Jerritt and McKinnon will offer two workshops on Hornby Island this year. The first, in late August, sold out, so they have decided to add an additional workshop to celebrate the fall colours.

Participants will capture the varied and dramatic feeling of fall ushering in on Hornby Island. Stunning seascapes, natural rock formation cliffs at Helliwell, low tides at Tribune Bay, and sunsets at Grassy and Tralee Point will form the backdrop. On this workshop participants will also visit Chrome Island; one of the few manned light houses here on the east coast of Vancouver Island.

“Immersing yourself in photography with like-minded people will set the stage for exploring your own personal vision,” said Jerritt, adding, ” Both myself and Karen are excited to be able to help kickstart peoples  visual journey in such  a supported and encouraging environment regardless of their of photography.”

Participants will stay at the Hornby Island Dive School at beautiful Ford’s Cove.

The second Hornby Workshop will run from Sept. 16 to 19. To register, contact Boomer Jerritt at  250-339-4125 or Karen McKinnon at 250-890-9222.
