About this Event

Canadian Wonders Photo Workshop Series

From coast to coast, and from the border to the high Arctic, Canada boasts some of the most beautiful places in the world.  The Canadian Wonders series is all about experiencing and photographing these special places.  We will explore nature at it's best, quaint villages, large cities, unique wildlife and local culture.  Your guide and instructor will be Chad Barry, an award-winning and nationally published career photographer.  He will use his extensive knowledge and experience to help you become a better photographer and story teller. The Canadian Wonder series includes locations in Ontario and Newfoundland with plans in the works for British Columbia, Alberta, Nova Scotia and more!  

Algonquin Park - FOUR DAY AUTUMN WORKSHOP

Algonquin Park is arguably one of the most beautiful Ontario destinations in the fall. Tourists from around the world visit Algonquin Park during the peak leaf changing season to witness the vibrant reds of the sugar maples and the saturated yellows of the birch tree. We have skillfully scheduled this workshop during the average peak leaf colour change. If we are lucky, we might even see moose! Located just a couple hours north of Toronto, Algonquin Park is a world full of beautiful natural scenery and ample wildlife. We will bring you to some easily accessible shooting locations which will provide the landscapes and wildlife that you’re looking for.  This workshop is geared towards amateur photographers looking to build their confidence in the field. Open to all ages and all levels of photography enthusiasts. We recommend that you have a DSLR camera to get the best out of the workshop experience. Please review our recommended gear list for more info.

Schedule of Activities

Registered participants will receive a more detailed itinerary by email.  As we will be on nature’s schedule we will be keeping the plan flexible so we can adjust to weather conditions and wildlife opportunities as they arise.

Day 1

Our adventures will begin at 10am.  We will meet at the Mad Musher restaurant in Whitney, just a few minutes from the east gate of Algonquin Park.  The Mad Musher will be our home base for the classroom portion of the workshop. Morning – We will do introductions and discuss our plans and expectations for the duration of the workshop.  From there we will jump right into learning about what makes a great photo, including composition, camera settings, equipment and in field techniques.  We will draw from our experience and share with you what has worked for us.Afternoon – After lunch, we are back in the classroom to share more tricks of the trade like photographing wildlife and shooting in poor weather conditions.  We will break in the late afternoon to allow for some rest, a meal and travel to our first shooting location.Evening – We will have one or two locations selected for our first evening of landscape photography.  You will work one on one with us to ensure you’ll receive value from your experience.  This shoot will continue through sunset.  

Day 2 & 3

Morning – We will start early, and meet at a pre-determined location to capture the sunrise.

Afternoon – After lunch we will have a break to recharge a bit and then get back out in the fresh air for more shooting. Depending on weather conditions we may focus on photographing waterfalls and rapids, macro photography, fall colours or Algonquin historical areas.  Make sure you bring your tripod

Evening – We will finish each day with a sunset photoshoot and then a later dinner. Depending on weather we may sneak in a little night photography and try to capture the Milky Way.

Day 4

Morning - We’ll get one more shooting location in on our final day before retiring back to the classroom.  We know you may be feeling a little tired by now. Feel free to sleep in if you need a bit of rest.  By mid-morning we will be back in the classroom for post processing demos on the big screen and some time to edit your own photos from the week. Make sure you bring your laptops with Lightroom or another editing software installed.  

Afternoon - Following lunch we will share some of your favourite photos with the class and do a friendly group photo critique.  This is one of the most beneficial parts of the workshop experience!  Chad will also spend time with each guest doing one on one critiques.  After the critques session we will present a slideshow showcasing all of the group‘s favourite photos.  This part of the workshop always leaves us inspired!.  

Evening – We’d love to stay forever but around 4pm the workshop will come to a close. We will say our goodbyes with lots of hugs and tears and allow you to start your journeys back home with lots of new knowledge!
