From our founder and lead photography expert:
What a fantastic way to welcome the New Year! By watching thousands of people in odd costumes, brave the chilly temperatures to run into the freezing cold waters of English Bay for the annual Polar Bear Swim.
Well insulated by all the supporters and other photographers, I smiled and photographed with dry feet and warm toes. There were some VERY skimpy outfits this year! One man was only wearing a piece of string and a plastic elephant trunk. Yup, exactly what you think it might look like. Hilarious but not a great photo to share.
Join me next year! I offer a guided photo walk for this event with tips on settings for action shots and more.
Here are a small selection of my favourites.
