Using the ocean as a vessel for inspiration

A workshop tailored to photographers of all levels looking to expand their knowledge about shooting the endless beauty of both landscapes and people that are inspired by the ocean. Located in Tofino, where the coastline is decorated with west coast charm and the ocean surrounding the beautiful peninsula offers a diverse opportunity to bring new perspective and inspiring focus to your photography. Bryanna will focus on shooting natural light, adventurous scenery, composition techniques, weather challenges, unique perspectives, and a variety of endless photographic opportunities the ocean presents.

Bryanna captures the rugged beauty of Tofino’s waves and the determined female surfers who ride them.

about bryanna bradley

My name in Bryanna Bradley, I am a professionally trained photojournalist turned surf and wedding photographer. 

As my photography has moved away from journalism and more towards weddings and surf I still hold documentary style photography close to my heart. I have a strong affinity towards natural lighting, beautiful giggles, and contrasting colours. My passion for documenting the raw beauty of emotions and dreamy visuals has not changed. My style of photography is based on people and the experience, including all the little moments.
