My raft guiding career has taken me around the world to Australia and Africa. In my ten years with CRE I have enjoyed spectacular trips in the western arctic. My “other career” as a professional photographer is the perfect marriage of passions www.tylergarnham.com. Sharing my skills with river guests brings the experience to another level. But my favourite aspect of guiding is sharing remote wilderness experiences with like-minded people and travelling using the force of nature.
At home in BC I enjoy backcountry skiing, personal and professional photography, kayaking, and raft expeditions!!
Being in a pristine and remote environment removed from any distractions and everyday routines is good for you and your soul. Once exposed to this, it is a hard habit to break. Having 2 young boys, I look forward to teaching them about the importance of these places and being immersed in them.
Another great season spent on the mighty Firth river. I was able to meet some amazing clients and I was able to work on the Parks trip, including a photo contract to capture images to promote the Park, which was a first for me. Some images on my blog here: http://blog.tylergarnham.com/?p=929
I managed to get the sailboat over to the Gulf Islands for a few days in the early fall and got lucky with great weather.
At home the boys now 6 and 9 keep us busy with all the sports and activities. I have another photo safari to lead in April 2018 in Botswana and that will keep me away for about a month.
I look forward to the spring to find out what river I will be on next year. Have a great winter everyone!!
Well, 2016 was another great year full of adventure.
In the Spring I headed to Botswana for a month to lead a Photographic Safari in the Okavango Delta (www.letakasafaris.com) only a month before heading north to Guide two amazing trip on the Tatshenshini, all to come home and grab the family to head North to do a Guide Family trip with Tyler D. on the amazing Chilcotin river.
My boys are now 5 and 8 and we have a new addition named “Sally” who is keeping us quite busy. My photography business is also at its peak time of year shooting commercial advertising and editorial assignment work.( www.tylergarnham.com )
Thanks again to Neil, the CRE/NRA crew and especially my wife Meg, for making this another killer year.
I am heading to Botswana at the end of March this year for a month of Safari photo guiding, then I plan to be back in the north for what I know will be yet another phenomenal guiding season! You can follow my photography here: http://tylergarnham.com/

It was a long time away from my wife and 2 boys (6 weeks). My big boy just turned 5 and is in Kindergarten full-time. Got out on the sailboat for a couple of trips over to the gulf islands and plenty of short sails on the Fraser river. Back to real life here in the lower mainland running my photography business and coaching/playing soccer with my boys. Planning a trip to Botswana in the spring to lead some photographic Safaris in the Okavango Delta with http://www.
