Tour Description


It's no secret that Banff National Park is one of the most beautiful places in the world.  It's presence on the UNESCO world heritage's list for the environment, together with Jasper, Yoho and Kootenay National Parks, is not a coincidence.  The Canadian Rockies are one of the most beautiful places in the world.  I feel fortunate to have been calling them my home since 1996.

The Banff National Park Macro and Landscape Photography Day Tour:

Join me as I show you my home for the past 22 years at the Macro level!  I'll use my intimate knowledge of the area gained through my 21 years of professional landscape photography experience in these mountains to take you to the best locations for macro and landscape photography at treeline on the day of the tour.  Banff is beautiful and the wildflowers blooming on the Continental Divide at this time of year are amazing!  

What to bring:

-  Camera bodies

-  tripod

-  large and small reflectors (12" or 18" diameter reflector recommended)

-  flash

-  macro lens

-  teleconvertor/extender

-  an ultra wide zoom lens (for the amazing landscape that we'll also see)

-  a mid range zoom lens (for landscapes)

-  a medium telephoto lens (70-200+mm in 35mm equivalent that can be used with teleconvertors) 

-  fully charged and spare battery(ies)

-  black/white umbrella to shade/difuse light onto the subject, or in case it rains

-  comfortable moderate weight hiking clothes

-  a waterproof groundsheet to sit/lie down on when composing photographs

-  polarizing filter

-  lenshood

-  tweezers (to clean away last year's dead grass in the macro composition

-  And,... a healthy dose of WOW for the scenery!
