Westcoast Wildlife and Landscape Photography
Helen Watt was born in Wales and immigrated to Vancouver Island as a small child where she lives to this day. As a youngster she spent countless hours on the island’s beaches. At the age of four her father gave her a tiny rowboat which launched her lifelong love for the sea and adventure.
Helen and her husband explore BC’s west coast from Victoria to SE Alaska on their tug, the ‘Salty Dawg’. She now devotes herself full time to capturing the beauty of the west coast and Africa through her lens. Her love of photography allows her to share her passion for wildlife and landscape photography. From grizzly bears to sea birds and ancient totems in Haida Gwaii; many subjects are captured from her dinghy or kayak.
Her favourite quote is from Kenneth Grahame‘s classic The Wind in the Willows, where the Water Rat said to Mole, “Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.” The only thing better is with a camera and Helen’s is never far away!
I am pleased to let you know that my photography website has been updated with photographs from our 2018 trip up the coast of BC and SE Alaska.
2018 photos can be found in the gallery titled; ‘Recent Work’. This year features four tiny grizzly cubs, bubble net feeding humpback whales and lots more.
As always, I love to hear if you have any favourites!
