LOCAL PHOTOGRAPHERS Boomer Jerrit and Karen McKinnon will be conducting two workshops in the new year.

Comox Valley photographers share passion

Sit down with Karen McKinnon and Boomer Jerritt and you will quickly realize that you are in the presence of two people with endless passion

Sit down with Karen McKinnon and Boomer Jerritt and you will quickly realize that you are in the presence of two people with endless passion, inspiration and energy when it comes to photography.

Both Jerritt and McKinnon have gained stellar reputation as photographers in the Comox Valley and beyond, and are both sought after instructors. So, how amazing would it be to be in an intimate photography class with both of them leading the way? Well, now is your chance.

They will lead one workshop Jan. 25-26, and have a second youth and parent class slated for Feb. 24.

“Boomer and I share a love for inspiring others in the art of photography,” said McKinnon, adding, ” we have been waiting for the right time to collaborate. We couldn’t be more excited about these workshops and others in the future.”

For their January workshop attendees will arrive at McKinnon’s downtown studio Friday evening for a meet and greet and content focused on the functions of their camera and stretching its creative possibilities.

The learning will continue Saturday, which will include a catered lunch, field trip and evening potluck critique session. This format ensures participants have an active role in creating for themselves images that are exciting and reflective of each individual’s personal vision.

By immersing themselves in photography for two days, and gaining concrete tools, participants are going to see their creative eye soar.

“When I see a break thru in a participant’s knowledge base, be it a visual design concept or technical issue and they start to realize the creative potential that exists with the creative instrument they are holding in their hands, it makes my day, the excitement is palpable,” said Jerritt.

With over 40 years experience between these two dynamic photographers, there is not a question or idea they would not be able to help you with.  These workshops are open to all levels of amateur photographers from point and shoot to the advanced; it is based on having fun and learning in a supported environment.

Jerritt and McKinnon also have a February one day workshop for youth (ages 12+) to take with their parents, this is a great opportunity for both parties to learn, be creative and most importantly enjoy the experience together.
