Local Colours at the Tivoli Theatre is the fourth photography show hosted by the Creston Valley branch of Wildsight in Creston’s own 75-year-old Tivoli Theatre with state-of-the-art digital equipment and screen.

Six photographers are volunteering their time to present Local Colours at 7:30 p.m. Dec. 1:

•Dave Quinn, wildlife biologist, educator, wilderness guide, writer and photographer, is driven by his passion for wilderness. He has been published in BC Magazine, Westworld, the Financial Post, Backcountry and Adventure Kayak, as well as the Patagonia and MEC catalogs. He was the keynote speaker at this year’s Creston Valley Bird Fest;

•Vincent Wolf (www.vrwolfphoto.com) was born in Saskatoon, Sask. At 16, he got his first point-and-shoot camera and has been taking pictures ever since. He has called the Creston Valley home since 2004;

•Douglas Noblet (www.wildairphoto.com) is a nature and aerial photographer living in Nelson. As a skier, mountaineer and pilot, he brings a unique perspective of the Kootenays to the big screen;

•Bernd Stengl and Ralph Moore’s presentation is filled with photos of wild places and good humour. Stengl’s photography hobby was inspired by the large collection of images left by his grandfather who was a photographer prior to the Second World War. Moore learned to love the wild places at an early age. He takes pictures with an artful eye inherited from his mother, showing us breath-taking images of wildlife and its home; and

•Lyle Grisedale (www.lylegrisedalephotography.com) lives in Kimberley. His day job is guiding for Canadian Mountain Holidays. Grisedale likes to photograph birds in flight, as well as the mountains of the East Kootenay in stunning black and white. His pictures of glaciers past and present will chill us all.

Admission is $10 at the door.
