About this event

DATES: November 5-7, 2021




Some of the most dramatic weather comes with the changing seasons and with dramatic weather, comes dramatic light - perfect photography conditions! During this workshop, we'll be visiting dynamic landscapes throughout Banff, observing the changes in season and welcoming the arrival of winter. It’s a very unique and photogenic time of year!

Our base will be in Lake Louise, in the heart of Banff National Park. Each day we'll venture to different locations in the surrounding area.

This workshop will cover a range of shooting conditions including sunset, night time, and morning light all while learning new techniques and strategies to strengthen your existing knowledge no matter your current skill level or camera gear. All the while you will have access to ask questions and gain inspiration from your two instructors, Kahli April and Nick Fitzhardinge.

We will share tips on composition and technical settings to best suit the landscape and light conditions. We will discuss artistic approach, long exposure techniques and way to add a little magic to your images!
