Steve Williamson is an award winning wildlife photographer and conservationist living in British Columbia’s Comox Valley. He spends a lot of his time working along the BC coast and when possible works with conservation charities in the Great Bear Rainforest and with the eco-tourism industry. Working with these organisations has enabled Steve to see many of the amazing sights and wildlife presented in his photographs. It also allowed him to learn a great deal about the spectacular scenery and wonderful wildlife he was seeing, whilst at the same time being able to give something back to the environment and the area in which he was working. Steve is also a trained bear viewing guide and has lead tours to view and photograph wildlife, as well as being the former general manager of an eco-tourism/bear viewing Lodge on the BC coast.
Steve’s interest in photography grew when trained by the Royal Navy to conduct photography work as an additional part of his ship’s duties and was further broadened by a college diploma in the late 90’s. Steve’s work has been published on websites, in newspapers, magazines & calendars. It has also been used in commercial advertising, environmental and educational programs and has been featured in promotional video presentations and national slideshows. Some of his work has also been retained in government and scientific databases for reference and referral archiving.
His first book, ‘Encounters! – The Wonders of British Columbia’s Great Bear Rainforest‘ was published in 2011 and today, working with and photographing the region’s wildlife is his passion.
