Peter Mather is a teacher who started his career in the tiny northern community of Old Crow. It was there he developed a passion for the plight of the caribou and the people whose culture is tied to them. An aspiring wilderness photographer, Peter sets out on a quest to document the herd, its migrations, and the role it plays in communities across the north. But he needs one epic shot – the one that will capture the significance of the herd and inspire others to protect it. Camera Trap is an intimate portrait of Peter, exploring what is behind his obsession with protecting the Porcupine herd and the lengths he will go to get the perfect shot.
