Huffington Post British Columbia, an online newspaper has recognized islander Guy Kimola’s photos by naming him its BC photographer of the month for June.”Haida Gwaii is often touted as one of the most beautiful areas of British Columbia, but its remote location means many of us can’t get there to see it in person,” the Huffington Post says, “thankfully there’s Guy Kimola, a photographer who captures the area’s beauty for all of us to enjoy.””You can see the same old bland thing day after day, but then the light hits it just right, and that’s your shot,” said Mr. Kimola, of Masset, ” If something looks cool, you go for it.”Most of the shots Mr. Kimola contributed to the Post are from on-island, although, he said he did add a few from Victoria and Tofino, too.His photography can be viewed or purchased through his website haidagwaiiphotos.com and at several islands shops.
