David McColm Whistler Library Armchair Tours

Whistler is full of talented artists who are inspired by the beautiful British Columbian landscape. One of these aforementioned artists is David McColm, who is best known locally for his video and photography expertise, giving Whistlerites another perspective of their home. McColm’s work often highlights the beauty of time and nature capturing spectacular views from the air, the alpine, or lakeside late at night when the stars are bright and the northern lights are dancing.

Come be apart of the Whistler Public Library’s Armchair Tours, where David McColm is planning to showcase his last adventure, Iceland and Greenland. The Whistler-based photographer travelled to these countries back in September to shoot photos, he also had the chance to send his brand new photography drone up in the air to gather footage for videos that he’ll debut at the event. Even with all the challenges, McColm said the more he visits new places, the more he wants to travel. “I love having Whistler as my home base,” he said. “I expect it always will be my home base, but when I come back I’m already thinking about where’s the next place to go.”

To hear more about David’s travels and see his photos and videos, check out the Whistler Public Library on January 31th at 7pm for David McColm’s Armchair Tours.
