Have you always wanted to light paint an abandoned school house? Now is your chance! Limited to 8 participants.

About this Event

Join Robert Scott on an abandoned adventure, Saturday July 18th from 3:00pm - 11:30am.

The adventure begins at the Canalta 41 Hotel just north of Oyen, Alberta at 3:00pm.

Eager to get out and shoot, we'll grab snacks and take our own vehicles on a photo tour of the surrounding area before we head to the unique abandoned school house Robert has chosen.

This tour will include TWO unique pioneer schools, a picturesque house, and a farm yard with a dozen buildings and a couple of rusty vehicles. Our last location for the night shoot will be a beautiful school house with bell tower.

We will arrive at the property around 7pm. There are some additional old shacks and equipment laying around that will be great for a variety of compositions. Take your time and explore the area.

Sunset is at 9:28pm.

As the sky begins to darken we will gather our tripods together at a safe distance and start the night photography process. Robert will demonstrate the tools and techniques he uses that breathe light and life into old buildings. When the sky darkens and if the skies are clear, Robert will also demonstrate how to compose, focus and expose for the night sky. As an added experience, Robert will illuminate the school house from above with his drone.
