This 7 day photography workshop and tour is designed to take you to the best photography locations in Banff, Jasper and Yoho National Parks whilst chasing the most dramatic light and weather conditions. You will have two of Canada’s most passionate landscape photographers with local knowledge of The Canadian Rockies by your side every step of the way assisting you in achieving all of your photographic goals. Multi-colored alpine glacial lakes that have just begun to unfreeze, snow on the mountain tops, cool crisp mountain air, and long summer days characterize this time of year, one of the best times to capture all these mountains have to offer.
A small group size with 2 instructors/guides maximizes your learning experience through their photography instruction & mentoring. This workshop is suitable for all levels of photography experience from a complete beginner to the advanced photographer as there will be many one on one opportunities throughout our time together. We will be by your side providing all that we know and love about landscape photography & The Canadian Rockies.
This is a great opportunity to have an in-depth photography adventure, to walk away a better photographer, to make new friends, and most importantly to have fun. We look forward to welcoming you to this spectacular part of Canada!

What are my transportation options for getting to and from the event?
We will be meeting at 10am in the Canmore area on day 1 of the workshop. Transport to/from Calgary International airport can be easily arranged with Banff Airporter or Brewster Express Bus and takes about 1.5hrs. You will be dropped off at the location of your request in the Banff/Canmore area on the final day after checking out of our hotel.
How cold will it be and will there be snow & wild weather?
This time of year is amazing for its variability which is perfect for creating dramatic photographs that have that something extra. It will be colder in the mornings. Average temperatures in June range between 3 to 17 degrees celcius (37-62F) but it can dip lower than that so be prepared for that possibility.
