     One of the best ways to photograph the landscapes of Banff National Park is to join one of my group day tours.  And, I’ll include with group transportation and meals included, Join me, and a small group of other photographers, on this inclusive Banff National Park Landscape Photography day tour.  And do this without without breaking the bank. 

     If you’re flexible about the day you go on your tour of the Canadian Rockies then join me on one of the group Banff National Park Landscape Photography tour.  You’ll share a tour van with a handful of other photographers on this tour while we visit amazing locations throughout the day.  If this tour format, and low price appeals to you then  join about 5-8 other enthusiastic landscape photographers and I on the next group Banff Landscape Photography Tour.  I’ve been hosting this popular group day tour of Banff National Park since 2007.  The longevity of this tour alone is a testament to it’s quality and value.  I hope to see you out on one soon!

I typically host 4-5 group tours throughout the year.  Two are usually held in the Winter and one in each of the other seasons.  Here’s a link to the registration page for the next group Banff Landscape Photography Day Tour:

     The August 2018 tour coincides with the spectacular mountain Summer landscapes in Banff National Park.  We’ll get to see the beautiful lush green valley floors transition towards the rocky snow capped peaks.  Banff is busy in the Summer for a reason.  It is a special time for Natural plenty in the Rockies!   This tour is limited to 9 photographers. 

Do we photography Grizzly Bears?

     *IF* we see a grizzly bear, or a black bear, during the landscape photography tour we’ll stop briefly to photography him if it is safe to do so.  After a short photo session we’ll move on to the next landscape photography destination.  We have seen and photographed bears about 30% of the time during the Summer private landscape photography tours

     The goal of a wildlife encounter is that we don’t change the behaviour of the animals that we photograph or farther habituate them towards humans.  And, we will photograph them safely from inside of the vehicle pulled over safely on the side of the road.  We aren’t permitted to get outside of the vehicle for a better angle to photograph them, even if we see other people outside of their vehicles.  The bears do come first!

A March 2018 Trip Advisor review:

”     I had never been on either a photo tour nor attended a photo workshop prior to the 2018 Banff National Park Spring Landscape Photography Day Tour. I’m glad I now have!

      I wasn’t really sure what to expect., but hoped for a good mix of technical instruction along with the location tour. I wasn’t disappointed. Even though we had winter weather for most of our spring tour, Brian took advantage of his local knowledge and brought us to locations that were photogenic.  And, he taught us some new tricks, and skills.  Brian was able to meet each of us on the tour at our individual levels of expertise.
