This year we’re taking time out to catch up with our local celebrities to get a glimpse into their Whistler life. Last month @GoWhistler chatted with one of Whistler’s favourite landscape and night sky photographers David McColm to find out how this long time local captures Whistler’s magic again and again.

Nikkey got her start in Whistler as an outdoor guide and the habit of talking about the place has clearly stuck. Whistler’s general laid-back lifestyle and immediate access to fun is what’s kept her around. When not hanging out on the Whistler Insider team Nikkey works as a freelance creative for outdoor and wellness brands. Nikkey’s favourite Whistler animal is the marmot- she just wants to pinch those fluffy cheeks! (but never would because she respects wildlife and really likes having her fingers attached to her hands.)
