Here at Tobermory Photography Cruises we’re excited about getting you out on the water for another season of photographing the wonderful light playing off the cliffs, water and rock formations along the shoreline of Georgian Bay. The tours begin during May long weekend and continue into the fall season!
Tobermory Photography Cruises leaves Tobermory Harbour twice a day, 9 am and 1 pm, to photograph the shoreline of Bear’s Rump and Flower Pot Islands.
Robert Cotton will be along to direct the cruise and help you with any questions you might have about “getting the shot”. Rob is professional photographer who lives in Tobermory and has been photographing the Bruce Peninsula area for years. He will help you get the best shot with your camera, be it a small point and shoot or a more sophisticated SLR with interchangeable lenses, suggesting the best angle and other composition possibilities. You will learn the best setting to use, be it sensitivity (ISO), shutter speed or aperture. The captains of the G&S Watersports boats will stop, allowing you the opportunity to get some spectacular off-shore photographs. You will be surprised how close to the shore you can get! Also, with a maximum of only ten photographers onboard you won’t be crowded at the rail.
At Flower Pot Island the boat will stop at flower pots giving you time to photograph them from several angles. Farther down the shore of the island you’ll see the century old home of the Lightstation Keeper. This is a wonderfully idyllic place to photograph on a nice summer morning but the lightkeepers and their families suffered through many storms, witnessed marine disasters and heroic rescues and lived and worked in lonely isolation from April to December for the 90 years that this station was manned.
Cruise around Bears Rump Island on this trip to photograph special wave cut-caves and cliff overhangs and sometimes some new rock falls. It was here that the Cliff Ecology Group at the University of Guelph found the oldest cedar trees yet discovered.
“You will have truly unique experience with Tobermory Photography Cruises capturing off-shore photographs of amazing cliffs, rock formations and even historical buildings!”
