A photograph of Bargain Bay in Madeira Park by Halfmoon Bay photographer Elaine Hunter was part of Capture BC, a province-wide exhibit in Victoria celebrating BC Day on August 5. “The Provincial Capital Commission, responsible for the annual BC Day event in Victoria, has a mandate to connect and celebrate the Capital with all British Columbians,” said PCC CEO Rick Crosby. “We are extremely happy this year that we were able to involve British Columbians from many different regions and communities.”

Using camera, computer and an imaginative sense of form and colour, Hunter has been capturing the interest of the art world with scheduled exhibits as far away as New York, London and Lisbon. “My photography business has just been booming lately,” she notes.

Nature and the Sunshine Coast’s landscape speak to Hunter, who moved to the area in 2006.  “I like the Sunshine Coast because of its naturalness,” she said. “I’m so at peace here and so at home.”

Although she’s always been very creative and has taken pictures all her life, Hunter says she became more serious about photography in 2003. Her dedication and experimentation is paying off. JFK Airport recently purchased some of her pieces and she is expecting a New York exhibition of her work this September.

About 8,000 visitors to Celebrate BC Day 2013 in Victoria enjoyed a glimpse of the beauty of the Sunshine Coast’s Bargain Bay as seen through Hunter’s eyes and lens.
