Over the years, while traveling in Europe and in North America, Catherine developed a passion for photography. She has a keen interest in nature, wildlife, abstract and street photography.


While wildlife photography requires patience, extensive research and a tolerance to inclement weather, the most important aspect for Catherine is to respect the fauna and its environment. She receives much satisfaction when the animal being photographed pursues its activities without any consideration for her.

In 2017, Catherine participated for the first time in a National photography contest in Canada, achieving First place in the Animal Category and Best in Show.

Catherine is specialized on Vancouver Island’s nature and wildlife. Her library of images is one of the most important about the Island. Catherine Babault Photography licenses images for advertising, editorial purposes, retail products and web use. Catherine also accepts assignments. Catherine Babault Photography sells fine art prints to private and corporate clients, and offers informal outdoor photography workshops.

Catherine est fière de vous offrir tous ces services en français.

Enviro friendly

Catherine Babault Photography is committed to reduce its impact on the environment. We acknowledge that Vancouver Island is a wild island with fragile ecosystems, which we are committed to protect from creeks to sea to sky, including its flora and fauna. We are committed to keep it clean and safe for the wildlife.


Tours and workshops

Catherine Babault Photography only hires local guides who understand and respect wildlife, who act responsibly by keeping a safe distant from the animals and do not attract them by any means like food.

Participants and the host keep a safe and respectable distance from any wildlife they might encounter during workshops and tours. We do not harass, stalk, feed, bait or trap wildlife. We observe wildlife from afar with (hopefully) a good telephoto lens in hand. If the animal chooses to get closer, it’s up to us to determine if he sees us as a threat, a delicious meal or just a funny looking human being. We reduce our impact on the environment by staying on designated trails when possible and we pick up after ourselves. We promote car-pooling for the participants.
