The Banff Landscape Photography Workshop is a weekend of intensive shooting and learning.  The emphasis of this event is on living a pro landscape photographers’ life during an intensive weekend of shooting day and night during the field workshop.  Bring multiple fully charged batteries and lots of empty memory cards.  Join me as I host a loaded weekend of nature photography for you.

Please make sure you’re well rested before you come to the workshop.  We will be staying up late sometimes to photograph the night sky.

I’ll have some reading material to give to you before you arrive in Banff to help give you to get a head start on the weekend.  We’ll also have material for you to access on the website after the weekend as well.  This material will help you to review what we presented to you during the workshop so you can go back and study the material later on at your own pace.
