Adventure & Wildlife Photographer
For 30 years Michelle Valberg has photographed wildlife and landscapes with the intention of regenerating simple beauty into a deeper reflection of humanity. Michelle’s portrayals of the natural world aim to draw viewers toward inner contemplation, based on the idea that building awareness and educating others through nature photography can inspire people to be better stewards of the natural world. By developing a deeper understanding of the interconnections between people, animals, and the environment, she believes that others can be motivated to take action in their local communities and beyond.
The Great Bear Rainforest in BC
Michelle visited the Great Bear Rainforest this fall – a largely untouched and still wild section of the northern BC coast with an unmatched diversity of wildlife and a stunning variety of ever-changing landscapes. In the fall the coast comes alive as the salmon return to their natal streams and the elusive Spirit Bear, black bear and grizzly bears join in the harvest. She also photographed humpback whales and orcas as well as birds that are plentiful as the sea shares its bounty. Touring through this spectacular wilderness in a spacious and beautiful Oceanlight2 sailboat provided her group with an intimate and uniquely personal look into the world’s largest tract of intact coastal rainforest.
