Wayne Barnes, Photographer
I fell in love with photography in 1973 and studied photography after high school in my home town of Peterborough, Ontario. Cameras and technology have changed since the 70s refining the colour and detail of photographs: Those technical advances have only added to my joy of lining up the shot and capturing a moment in time. As a professional photographer, I have been constant in my goal of exploring nature through photography – and each time I go out I learn something new.
In 1990 my travels lead me to British Columbia where I found my new home in Tofino. The natural beauty is a photographer’s dream. I have focused my eye on the magnificent wildlife that lives in and travels through Clayoquot Sound and the majestic scenery of the beaches and ocean of Tofino. My relationship with wildlife and nature has been rewarding for my photography – and for my growth as a naturalist and human being.
I hope someday you get to visit Tofino and let the Canadian West Coast feed your soul. If you do, please get in touch!
