The 2018 ILPA Landscape Photography Summit

The International Landscape Photographers' Association's Landscape Photography Summit is a unique event. This is the 3rd Annual ILPA Landscape Photography Summit and the Summit is based again in the beautiful mountain town of Banff, in Banff National Park. Banff is one of the premiere landscape photography destinations in the World!

The annual Summit occurs each year on a weekend at a popular landscape photography destination in North America. This year it’s in Banff, AB again on the weekend of Nov. 30 - Dec. 2, 2018.

The Summit is composed of many things including: presentations by leading professional landscape photographers, a small trade show, an included landscape photography day tour of Banff National Park for full Summit Pass holders and a one year membership to the International Landscape Photographer’s Association for Full Summit Pass holders, which you can use to take advance of the ILPA Member's discount on next year's Summit.

Banff is the place to base yourself to photograph the grand landscapes of the spectacular Canadian Rockies, a spectacular world heritage site for the environment. But, also come to The Summit in Banff to fully immerse yourself into the creative landscape photography process during the conference. Come to Banff and live the passion uninterrupted for a weekend of photography presentations, editing presentations, and come to learn from some of the leading nature photographers in the industry.

The Banff National Park day tour included with your Summit registration:

Conference excursions are a great way to get out to photograph the amazing landscapes in Banff National Park. This is why we've included the Banff National Park Day Tour in the base Summit registration. Everyone who registers for the Summit with a Full Summit Pass will be getting a pass to go on one of the two Banff National Park landscape photography day tours. We believe the Banff National Park Day Tour to be the star attraction of all photography tours in Banff and we felt complelled to include it in the base registration for the Summit. This tour has been a staple tour offered by Brian Merry, your Summit host for many years. It's a good tour.

Addition photography excrusions during the Summit (available to Full Summit Pass holders only*):

Sunrise excursion:

As landscape photographers we all know that the best way to increase our chances of getting the best photographs is to get out there shooting on multiple occasions. You just never know when the weather will be just right for that perfect shot. So, to increase the chances for you to get that perfect photograph we've added a another sunrise photography photo excursion to the Summit cirricullum on Saturday morning.

Night Sky excursion:

We also know that Banff National Park is an ideal location for night sky photography. To that end we've added 2 night sky photography excursions as well. One on Friday Night and one on Saturday Night. We can't gaurantee perfect weather but we will take you out to prime locations given the weather at hand to photograph the night sky.

These excursions are optional and, they are additional to the regular Summit cirricullum. Only Summit Pass "A" or Summit Pass "B" ticket holders are premitted to purchase tickets to these extra excursions. If you missed out on buying one of the full Summit passes then please contact Brian directly During the Summir weekend to see if there is still room on the excursions. Tickets for the excursions not sold prior to the start of the Summit will be released to "Presentation Only" Summit pass holders during the weekend, if there are any excursion tickets remaining. Seating is limited on each excursion. There are three to choose from:

  1. Friday night sky photography 1.5 hour tour (25 seats)
  2. Saturday morning Sunrise 1 hour photography tour (25 seats)
  3. Saturday night sky photography 1.5 hour tour (25 seats)
