Agathe Bernard is a photographer, filmmaker, educator and geologist with an appetite for adventure. An avid outdoorswoman and athlete, she is passionate about educating others about sustainability in our daily lives using her favourite tool, the camera, to share her vision.
“I have always loved spending time in nature by myself and just observing and being present. When I was a kid, I could watch a snail cross the road for an hour. I can get totally lost in the details and patterns in a rock or a bunch of moss. Looking at things from different perspectives to see if there is a pattern is probably why I ended up becoming a scientist,” she jokes.
Though she travels constantly for work and play, she stays connected to the mountain community through her creative work and through her involvement on the board of the North Columbia Environmental Society (NCES), as well as her work as staff photographer for the Revelstoke-based women’s ski organization Girls Do Ski.
