Mark Kaarremaa, Photographer of the salmon

Protection Island, where Mark Kaarremaa lives, is in the harbour of Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. Only 300 people live there and they must take a boat ride to get to town. At low tide, they can walk across to Newcastle Island, a provincial park.

From Protection Island, Mark runs Imageplay Photography. (Link opens in a new window).

He has been a photographer for over 20 years. Besides his photo in Amazing British Columbia, he has published over 1000 pieces in places like The New York Times, National Geographic Adventure and The Globe and Mail. He also sells his pictures to media, corporate advertising, and public relations people.
