Banff National Park is an exceptional landscape photography destination year round and the Winter season offers a unique set of circumstances that makes Banff possibly one of the best places on Earth to come for a Winter landscape photography workshop.  Banff is a busy little ski town in the winter and most of our visitors during this time of year spend their days on the slopes of of world class ski hills.  This fact leaves the scenic roadways nearly deserted at this time of year, yet the town takes on a euphoric, winter wonderland feel to it at night.  This is a good time of year to visit Banff for “Pure Winter” photography and for the night sky photography.  The snowpack is impressive how it drapes over the mountains and the workshop facilities are very, very comfortable with in house restaurant and spa/gym.

I’ll use all my experience I’ve gained by living and running my photography business in the are since 1996 to deliver what I think is a very comprehensive weekend photography workshop that contains the perfect blend of photography field sessions during the day and an ample amount of classroom time with structured lessons and an teaching goals.  Couple that with Dani’s professional talents and her approachable friendly personality, and we combine together to deliver possibly the best landscape photography instructor team in Canada.  Let us show you our unique and industry leading blend of landscape photography instruction.

Bring your laptop, camera gear, warm cloths and specialized equipment for cold weather and night sky photography.
