About Your Guides
Jason Coleman - Lead Guide
A rare combination of explorer, academic and artist, Jason spends half the year leading photo safaris in his home town of Whistler BC, and the other half completing a degree at Harvard University in Cambridge MA. He’s an award-winning graduate of the Western Academy of Photography with two decades of commercial photography experience, and has been awarded the highest achievement of academic excellence by Harvard University being on the Dean's List for several years. Jason may well have logged more time observing bears and their natural habitat throughout Whistler's Callaghan Valley than anyone else, and his exclusive agreement with the Whistler Olympic Park provides unprecedented access. His unique perspective and fascinating ability to offer up plenty of bear related anecdotes make his tour unforgettable.
