Barry Giles

Over 55 years in Photography, as well as 36 Years of Teaching Photography at a collage level (Film and Digital). Natural History photography is my Love and Sharing the Craft is my Passion.

Photography is part of my life. I grew up with a camera in my hand. I had a black and white darkroom at the age of 6 and I have just passed five decades of photographic experience. I started with a 6 X 6 twin lens reflex camera and spent more than 40 years shooting film, and I still shoot Large Format Film and work and print in my darkroom, but most of my work is digital now. I have a Bachelors in Education and taught High School for 24 years.

I began teaching Photography for the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology Polytechnic (SAIT) in 1981. I developed and taught four of the Photography Certificate courses, Scenic and Wildlife, Nature Close-up, Landscape and Action Photography courses for 36 years.

I am Co-owner/Photography Instructor/Guide for VG Photography Tours Ltd. We are based in Calgary at the gateway to the Rocky Mountains.
We run reasonable priced Photo Tours to places that I have been and want to share with liked minded people. My partner speaks Dutch as well as English.
