Terrace photographer Brandon Broderick joins North West Photo Fest lineup

Brandon Broderick was born in Windsor, Ontario in 1986. Most of his time as a child was spent exploring the outdoors which is what lead to his love of the natural world.

After high school, Brandon studied Fish and Wildlife at Fleming College in Lindsay, Ontario. It was during his second year of college that he discovered an interest in photography. Using a 3.2 megapixel Sony point-and-shoot camera, Brandon captured simple landscape images to use as his personal desktop backgrounds for my computer.

It wasn’t until friends began to ask to use his images as their own desktop backgrounds that he thought photography might be worth pursuing. After graduating college, he purchased a second-hand Canon Rebel 6 megapixel DSLR camera complete with 18-55mm and 70-300mm lenses. Since then, he has been learning and practicing new techniques in order to grow as a photographer. Brandon has lived in Terrace for just over 5 years now.

He spends his free time exploring this beautiful part of the province and photographing the all the wildlife and landscapes it has to offer. Brandon will be talking about his adventures in wildlife photography and give participants hints on how to use camera traps.
