Instructor Bio

Jeff Boyce’s professional photography career has been constantly progressing since he graduated the renowned Photojournalism program at Loyalist College in 2008. Getting his start as the team photographer with the Belleville Bulls Junior A hockey club and freelancing for the Belleville Intelligencer, his experience led him to contract work with the Canwest Media group and freelance opportunities with the Vancouver Sun, Victoria Times Colonist and the National Post among others.

Boyce’s editorial work was recognized by the faculty at North Island College and he was offered a position instructing the FIN 723 Photojournalism course in which he developed a 14 week, three hour lecture curriculum that he has been teaching for the past six years. Since returning to Whistler in 2009, Boyce has been developing his own photography business, Photography Whistler, which specializes in digital photography instruction, sports photography, weddings and real estate.

Boyce’s competitive advantage lies in his unique digital photography instruction. In addition to his work at North Island College, Boyce has developed and offered a variety of digital photography workshops through the Whistler Arts Council, Whistler Blackcomb (for the Travel Media Association of Canada) and private instruction.
