Tour Description:

Introduction:

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 21 years at the Macro level!  I’ll use my intimate knowledge of the area gained through my 20 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 this time of year are amazing!
