Raised on the banks of the Campbell River, April is passionate about keeping an eye on the wild faces and places in her expansive backyard (the BC coast). She spends her time exploring the relationship between humans and wilderness via wildlife photography, conservation storytelling, and through writing and poetry. April’s love of diving (scuba, rebreather, freediving) led her to pick up a camera and take it 80ft underwater where her passion for photography was first sparked.
