COURTENAY, B.C.- A local photographer will host a special presentation at North Island College on Tuesday night.
Boomer Jerritt will be presenting Antarctic In-Depth.
“It (focuses) on my trips down to the Antarctic Peninsula and South Georgia working as a photographer and resident with One Ocean Expedition,” he said.
“We will look at some of the incredible landscape and animals that are down in that area. We will look a little bit at the history – the whaling, the Shackleton saga and of course, the idea of expedition cruising in general.”
Jerritt’s lecture is the second in a series of Travel Adventure Presentations being held at the college’s Stan Hagen Theatre.
He will share various images of the plains of St. Andrews, Salsbury Plain and Gold Harbour, which host over a quarter of a million King Penguins.
Jerritt will also share photos from the Bransfield and Gerlache Strait areas, which house creatures like humpback whales and leopard seals.
“It’s been a joy to be shooting alongside Boomer, sharing perspectives on photos and learning how he operates,” said fellow photographer Chris Packham, in a release.
“He’s a thinker and this makes you think, and that’s the best route to taking better pictures.”
Proceeds from ticket sales to Boomer’s presentation will go towards local non-profit, the Cumberland Community Forest Society.
Tickets can be purchased through this link.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with the event starting in the Stan Hagen Theatre at 7:00 p.m. on Tues. January 30th.
