The Creston Valley branch of Wildsight is excited to host its fifth photography show at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 30. This year’s photographers are:

Jesse Moreton, from Creston, is a hiking enthusiast with a young family and a regular job. His photographs reflect his passion for mountain adventure;

Peter McLennan spent 35 years as a freelance film cameraman working on documentaries, sports, corporate sales films, music videos, network television series and Hollywood feature films. He has also been the chief instructor of digital photography at the Vancouver Film School’s multimedia facility. After working in over 50 countries, he has wisely chosen the Creston Valley for retirement. He continues to travel with camera in hand, and teach photography at the College of the Rockies;

Janice Strong ( lives in Cranbrook. She is a professional landscape, outdoor and nature photographer. Many know her through her popular hiking guidebook, Mountain Footsteps, now in its third edition. When Strong is not taking photographs, writing, hiking, snowshoeing or skiing, she is involved in photographic projects for clients;

Jim Lawrence ( lives in Meadow Creek, at the north end of Kootenay Lake. He is a well-known professional wildlife photographer with a penchant for bears. Lawrence’s photography showcases the beauty of wildlife, its natural habitat, and the interconnectivity of everything; and

Bernd Stengl, from Canyon, is a passionate hiker and hobby photographer with an eye for landscapes. Hiking with the local hiking group has provided him with plenty of landscape and human subject matter, winter and summer.

Two more Wildsight shows are scheduled for the Tivoli Theatre: Jumbo Wild, a film by Sweet Grass Productions sponsored by Patagonia, admission by donation on Dec. 14; and the Wild and Scenic Film Festival, a collection of amazing outdoor adventure and nature films, on Jan. 25.

Tickets are $10 at the door. These Wildsight shows are made possible by owner Bonnie Geddes equipping the Tivoli Theatre with digital projection.
