Join award-winning fine-art photographer Marc Koegel for this outstanding opportunity to photograph one of the most beautiful places in North America.
Marc has been leading this popular photographic tour for the past 8 years and in the process he has collected a wealth of knowledge of the area and its photographic opportunities.
Each year over a million tourists visit the Tofino area making it one of British Columbia’s premier destinations.
Tofino is located on the West Coast of Vancouver Island in the province of British Columbia, Canada. At Tofino's doorstep is the Clayoquot Sound region, a world UNESCO biosphere reserve. This area also boasts one of British Columbia's most prized nature reserves, Pacific Rim National Park. Tofino offers one of the best opportunities to experience BC's pristine wilderness first hand.
Just imagine the infinite number of photographic opportunities! This workshop is very much focused to provide you with as much time in the field as possible. Expect to take at least twice as many pictures as you think you will!
This is an all-inclusive Workshop offering!
VPW’s van(s) take you from downtown Vancouver all the way to Tofino. Return trip with BC ferries is included as well.
Once in Tofino, we will stay at Tin Wis Hotel Resort.

We’ll go out shooting each day, and return for daily critiques and optional lectures.
VPW's small group policy will give frequent opportunities for one-on-one instruction.
We will meet in the evenings to go over the events of the day, share our thoughts and get prepared for the next day.
Come and join us for an unforgettable trip to one of North America’s most scenic places!
