with Neil Ever Osborne

A Visual Storytelling Workshop

at the Art Gallery of Burlington

Burlington, Ontario, Canada


9:00 AM – 4:30 PM

Upcoming Workshop

From swimming with grizzly bears in the Pacific Northwest,to dropping a 6-million dollar robotic submersible down onto the Gulf of St. Lawrence seafloor, to sitting with an Inuit in the Canadian Arctic wind at -50℃, Neil Ever Osborne is a visual storyteller working on conservation campaigns that express the important link between people and planet. He’s even hiked through the heart of the Brazilian Amazon and didn’t get bitten by a snake, though he saw a spider the size of a dinner plate.

Hear more of Osborne’s misadventures and some fortunate successes as he gains insight from elders in Ecuador’s fragile rainforests, cod-kissing fishermen on the East coast, and a farmer who lives with penguins in his backyard. In their voices, Osborne reflects, “we understand a little bit more about how this crazy world works, and how inherently connected we are to the living planet.” Three nieces add a final touch of wisdom when he talks about his work closer to home, a place he will always want to protect.

Osborne’s work is deeply rooted in a documentary approach that bears witness to humanity’s ecological footprint – the human demand on nature. All the while, he uses visual storytelling to start a dialogue he believes is of the utmost importance: we’re not apart from nature, but very much part of it.

Whether you’re an entry-level photographer or avid Instagrammer, a committed enthusiast or a professional communicator, this visual storytelling workshop experience is designed to help you tell more effective stories with your images, but perhaps more significantly, it’s about a community dialogue.
