A Canoe and Photographic Adventure in Canada’s Arctic
Jim Neale

In the summer of 2022, I was joined by colleagues from Japan, Singapore and the United States to spend 4 weeks canoeing from the headwaters of the Horton River to the Arctic Ocean. The 700 km journey took us through intimate watershed streams, vast tundra regions and 70 km’s of rapids surrounded by sheer canyons. The route was filled with spectacular scenery and intimate wildlife encounters. In this presentation I’ll be sharing some highlights and images of our adventure, my camera gear choices, waterproofing/packing suggestions and reflections on the photographic experience. I also look forward to discussions around the many questions and ideas that I hope will arise.
Jim’s primary photographic interests are travel and sports of all kinds. He and his partner Donna travel about 6 months of the year, seeking out places and experiences that are unique and compelling. Sometimes he comes back with reasonable images but photography is not his primary reason for travel, nor do they ever do justice to the magic of the experiences.

Jim started his career leading groups in the wilderness for weeks at a time and has continued that practice throughout his adult life. Planning is currently underway to kayak the coast of Greenland for a month next summer. You preview some of Jim’s photography on his Flickr page.
