Tyler Garnham of Delta is not only a successful outdoor photographer, he also sidelines as a river guide. For the past 15 years, he has been leading expeditions down such wild waterways as the Alsek, Nahatlatch, Thompson, Stein, and Babine making him uniquely qualified to photograph “The mighty Babine” (Fall 2012). For the article, Garnham and writer Larry Pynn joined a group of experienced rafters on a self-directed journey down the Babine River from Fort Babine to Kispiox in Northern B.C.
“The Babine is B.C. at its best,” says Garnham. “It has everything. Big rapids with salmon heading upstream while eagles watch the bears in a superb protected area that is untouched and unspoiled by clear cuts or power lines. The river’s remoteness combined with the wildlife is why I do these trips and enjoy sharing the experience with others on the trips or through my photography.”
