Pat Morrow gives Wings Over the Rockies photo workshop at Wilmer Wetlands.

Long recognized as one of Canada’s premier climbers and photographers, Pat Morrow will lead a Fernie Writers Mini-Conference Integrating Photography into Writing. While the words carry the story, a few judicious photos can make the difference between the ordinary and the exceptional.

Pat will work with the participants in becoming comfortable with their camera. Keith Liggett, will work on creating the story behind the photo, bringing the story and the photo into focus together.

The workshop will be divided into two groups, each limited to eight to ten participants.

The Mini-Conference will be held at Fernie Alpine Resort and participants will be able to purchase discounted lift tickets. A special block of rooms has been set aside for lodging the photographer/writers by our sponsoring lodging companies, Fernie Lodging Co and Lizard Creek Lodge.

The weekend starts with a social gathering at Lizard Creek Lodge Friday evening, March 13. Sessions run all day, Saturday, March 14 and Sunday, March 15.

Saturday evening at 8PM in the Meeting Room at Lizard Creek Lodge, Pat will give a presentation on his most recent book, Searching for Tao Canyon (Rocky Mountain Books). This will be free and open to the public.

Tuition for the weekend is $250 and includes the presentation.

The Youth Session for the weekend led by Danielle Gibson will run from 1PM to 7PM March 13 and 9AM to 4PM on March 14. For more information on the Youth Session contact Keith Liggett (see below).
