A Tribute to Garry Johns
On March 16, while on a photo shoot at Light House Park in West Vancouver, club member and beloved friend, Garry Johns had an unfortunate accident that resulted in his death. As a tribute to Garry we are dedicating Photomotion 2021 in his honour and to his memory. He was a valuable member of our club and a dear friend to many. He is deeply missed.

Photomotion is an annual professional multimedia event consisting of audio/visual slideshow presentations with special effects, created by award-winning photographers belonging to the Pacific Digital Photography Club.
This year we are especially pleased to have Liron Gertsman as our special guest presenter.
You may have seen him on CBC’s “The National”, heard his voice on CBC Radio One, or seen his work in publications such as Canadian Geographic magazine, The Guardian, GEO magazine, and others. At 21 years old, Liron Gertsman is already an accomplished nature photographer. His work has been experienced by millions in some of the largest museums across the world, including the Natural History Museum in London and the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. Liron uses his photos to educate on the importance of preserving the natural world for the continued health and existence of all who live on our planet. As a naturalist and photographer, he feels it is his duty to show people the essence of Earth, by thinking outside the box to create eye-catching images that connect people with the environment. Liron’s work has been widely recognized and awarded, sweeping the youth category of the 2018 Audubon Photography Awards and earning a highly commended designation in the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. Liron currently studies biology at the University of British Columbia as he continues to build upon his passion and commitment to the environment.

We would like to thank our sponsors, Westwood Honda and Kerrisdale Camera for their generous donations that helped make it possible for us to attract Liron as our guest photographer.
For 16 of the past 18 years Photomotion has been presented in the Inlet Theatre in Port Moody. In 2020, due to Covid-19, Photomotion was presented in a virtual format on-line. It was a tremendous success having been viewed in over a dozen countries across the globe. Again this year, due to Covid-19, we will be offering Photomotion to you in a virtual format on-line.
