What to expect

The workshop is suitable for participants of all levels of experience in photography. Most locations will be readily accessible from the road, although we may hike short distances on occasion.

This event focuses on landscape + outdoor + night photography but may possibly include a short portrait component. Talks will be focused primarily on the technical, artistic, and compositional process of creating strong images.

What to Bring

This will be a "rain or shine" event. Weather in July on Prince Edward Island is generally beautiful but there is, of course, the chance of rain storms, wind, bugs, and hot, hot sun. Please come prepared, accordingly, for all weather conditions.

Packing List:

• suitable and comfortable clothing, which you can layer

• warm jacket (for late night photoshoots)

• appropriate footwear (we will be in wet, rocky, and possibly muddy areas)

• a headlamp or flashlight (we will be in pre-dawn darkness for one morning)

• your own camera equipment (preferably DSLR, which allows manual control of shutter speed, aperture and ISO settings; bring the fastest lens you have)

• a sturdy tripod

• a laptop for editing (with editing software, preferably Adobe Lightroom and/or Photoshop)


Both Dave and Paul preach and live the ethics of "leave no trace" photography, which means that the utmost care is given, while hiking and photographing, to leaving zero impact on the natural environment. Participants are expected to approach this tour with the same ethics at all times.

Cancellation Policy

Spots are non-refundable but are transferrable (i.e. if the participant is able to find someone else to take their spot and can sell/transfer the spot to a new participant, this is acceptable). We cannot offer refunds or credits.

Although extremely unlikely, OFFBEAT Photography Inc. reserve the right to cancel the workshop at any time for a variety of reasons (i.e. if a minimum number of participants is not met or if unforeseen circumstances dramatically impacted the cost of the tour or global conditions somehow warranted a cancellation). In the very unlikely event of a cancellation, all monies/deposits made will be refunded to participants, however, no compensation would be made for participant flight cancellation fees.


We encourage participants traveling from outside Alberta to have trip cancellation insurance, including medical/illness insurance.

Travel Visa

It is the participant's responsibility to ensure they have a valid Travel Visa (if applicable/required) for the duration of the workshop.

About Paul Zizka

Specializing in photographing in difficult conditions and hard-to-reach places, Paul has a passion for shooting alpine sports and backcountry experiences, capturing the spirit of adventurers and finding unusual angles of common mountain subjects. As a landscape photographer, he particularly enjoys the challenge of capturing nature’s beauty at night and the unique features that come with a dark sky – stars, Northern Lights and dramatic silhouettes.

Paul’s award-winning photos have been featured in a variety of publications, includingIMPACT, Alpinist, Canadian Geographic, Islands, PhotoLife, Fodors.com and explore magazine. In addition to his work for a number of clients, over the past few years Paul has created a signature collection of images for Banff Lake Louise Tourism, which are used to promote Banff National Park throughout the world.

In the Canadian Rockies, Paul has hiked extensively in the backcountry and photographed from the summits of countless peaks. His adventures abroad include a 1400-km unsupported double-crossing of Iceland on foot (2004), which is believed to be the first of its kind, and a 1488-km solo crossing of the South Island of New Zealand (2007). Recent travels have taken him backpacking in the Caribbean, exploring tiny insular nations of the Pacific, trekking in remote corners of Scandinavia and Nepal, and ski touring on Baffin Island.
