TJ Watt is an award-winning nature and conservation photographer from Victoria, British Columbia. Combining his passion for rainforest conservation with professional photography, he sheds light on BC’s endangered old-growth forests in an effort to help see them saved. A self-confessed 'big-tree hunter', TJ can often be found driving rough backroads and exploring remote regions of Vancouver Island in search of the last old-growth giants.
His compelling images have helped bolster environmental campaigns led by organizations such as the Ancient Forest Alliance (of which he is a co-founder), Sierra Club of BC, Canopy, Wilderness Committee, and the David Suzuki Foundation. They've also played a pivotal role in securing the protection of important areas such as the now-famous Avatar Grove near Port Renfrew and a significant portion of Echo Lake on BC's Lower Mainland. From the country's biggest trees to its widest stumps, TJ's photos have been featured in museums, magazines, books, newspapers, television, and art exhibits across Canada and around the world.
