    Some testimonials from past guests:

    – “Nick is incredibly knowledgeable about both photography and the surroundings we’re shooting in, which helped me connect more with the landscape. I learned so much in just a few days. He works with you and the style you like to shoot in and gives you tips and composition ideas. He ensured everyone in the workshop was safe and comfortable as well. I hope to do another workshop with Nick again!”  –  Ti-An

    – “Spending a few days with Nick in the Banff area were days well spent! We loved Nick’s patience and knowledge, never once making us feel inadequate, whether it was with our cameras or our physical ability to go places. His gentle reminders about technical use of our gear, and pointing out amazing compositions were all appreciated. Nick is not just knowledgeable about photography, but we also learned so much about the area, the geography and history. Within hours of meeting Nick, I felt safe, as if my own son was taking me on a vacation. I would not hesitate to book another tour with Nick and take my love of photography and the outdoors even further”  –  Sheryl

What to expect

This 3 night Banff landscape photography workshop focuses on chasing DRAMATIC LIGHT during one of the most photogenic times of year, the transition to winter. It is the perfect time to photograph as the crowds have died down, the landscape is covered with fresh snowfall & frost, and yet the lakes remain mostly unfrozen. The fragile, fleeting icy edges of these lakes and their accompanying rivers provide additional LEADING LINES that we will take advantage of when searching for compositions at each location.

Our base will be in Lake Louise, in the heart of Banff National Park and each day we’ll venture to different locations in the surrounding area depending on the light and weather. During one sunset we will visit the top of the Banff Gondola (included in the event cost) for photographing MOUNTAIN LAYERS so come prepared with your telephoto lens! We will also visit the top of the Lake Louise gondola for even more photography from up high (also included in the event cost).

By the end of the workshop you will have captured some amazing photographs, have learned new techniques or sharpened your skills, and made new friends in the Canadian Rockies.


Meet at 2pm on the first day in Lake Louise, and finish at 11am on the final day. 3 nights and 4 days of jam packed locations, learning & fun! The exact itinerary will be light and weather dependant, we will stay flexible on this workshop. Our central base in Lake Louise will allow us to move in multiple directions efficiently with Abraham Lake, Emerald Lake, the Three Sisters & the top of both the Banff & Lake Louise Gondolas being some of our location highlights.

What’s Included:

  • Personalized photography Instruction from an expert in the field of landscape photography as well as a certified 4 season hiking guide (ACMG & IGA) as your leader.
  • 1x ticket to the top of the Banff Gondola
  • 1x ticket to the top of the Lake Louise ski resort gondola.
