Haida Gwaii is often touted as one of the most beautiful areas of British Columbia, but its remote location means many of us can't get there to see it in person.

Thankfully there's Guy Kimola, a photographer who captures the area's beauty for all of us to enjoy. And so, he our B.C. Photographer of the Month for June!

Kimola was born in Tofino, where he says his childhood "was spent horrifying his mother" by bringing snakes and frogs into the house. He earned a living as a deckhand on fishing boats and then as a carpenter, eventually moving to Haida Gwaii in 1995.

It was there that he realized "if you spent enough money on a camera you'd be kind of obligated to learn how to use the thing."

We're sure glad he did.
