Karley Bracey

Ambassador, Tofino

Karley’s fascination with taking pictures started at a young age. While traveling the world, she photographed people and places as a way to express herself creatively. She graduated from the North Island College Professional Photography Program. Here she developed her technical foundation and found a new love for this medium. When not working, Karley can be found snowboarding, surfing and adventuring on Vancouver Island and beyond…. (usually with camera in hand).
