Elusive Image Photography • View topic - Proposed optional schedule

Proposed optional schedule

In Sept. 10, 2009, I lead a photo tour to western Canada for the purpose of photographing grizzly bears, black bears, whales, eagles, and fascinating landscapes. For future check http://www.outdoorphotoworkshops.com.

Proposed optional schedule

Postby jamesfc on Wed May 06, 2009 2:09 pm

For those who plan to arrive early on Vancouver Island, here is the schedule I've put together - please post your thoughts and suggestions!

Thurs, Sept 10th
Arrive around 3:30 in Victoria, meet any other group members who are arriving and get our rental car(s). Drive up to Duncan (about 30 minutes) and check into the motel and catch up with the rest of the group. Look for good photo opportunities and good sunset opportunities. FInd someplace for dinner - hit the sack!

Friday, Sept 11th
Get up early for breakfast and perhaps sunrise images? Go to the raptor center (9:00 am) for the raptor photo session which should last a couple hours. Grab some lunch and take our time driving up to Nanaimo area on the east coast and stop in local parks and scenic spots for more photo ops. Nanaimo is on the coast. Check into our motel and finish the day doing more photography in and around that area.

Saturday, Sept 12th
Up early again - there may be opportunities for some coast sunrise shots for early risers. Whales may even be seen. Eat breakfast and slowly drive up to Campbell River and stop for more parks and photo ops. Note that Campbell River is only about an hours drive from Nanaimo and we don't have to be at the airport until 2:00pm, so we still have lots of time for photography as well as lunch before we repack to board the float plane.

AFTER WE RETURN FROM THE LODGE
Wednesday, Sept 16th
Slowly drive back to Victoria and take some time for breakfast, lunch and more photo ops. Carolyn and I fly out of Victoria early in the afternoon. Drop off the rental car, bid our good-bys and head on home!

The above schedule is based upon my arrival and departure dates and times. The real concern involves Sept 16th to make sure everyone gets back to the airport(s) in time (either Victoria or Vancouver) since some of us will also be dropping off rental cars. Once we know everyone's plans we can fine tune the schedule to fit everyones needs.

I have been in touch with a group located near Courtenay that can supply us with a professional guide who is also a biologist for $5 (CAD) per person per hour. A four hour wildlife guided tour, including a snack and lunch, would cost each person about $30 (Canadian) if at least 9 of us decide to participate. I think this is a great deal, rather than trying to find good sites on our own. I'm proposing that we book the guide/biologist for early Saturday morning, then we can head to Campbell River after in time to catch our flight to the lodge.
