    For complete beginners and advanced photographers alike, we cater to you.

    This trip will involve you learning as much as we can possibly fit into our time together. I’ll always be working with you and your camera gear so that you will walk away a better photographer, get bucket list shots, and be inspired for your future photography shoots as you will have taken another step forward technically and creatively.


    Have confidence that you are with a professional guide who has your safety and enjoyment top of mind.

    We are fully certified with two professional guiding associations in Canada, the ACMG (Association of Canadian Mountain Guides) as a Hiking Guide, and the IGA (Interpretive Guides Association) as a Professional Interpretive Guide. We are winter accredited in both as well meaning that we are an excellent year round choice to lead you on your next photo adventure.


    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

(2 or 3 night wilderness photography workshops)

What to expect

2 dates are available: June 28th – July 1st (3 nights) & September 25th – 27th (2 nights) – both are Naiset Hut based. These are now SOLD OUT. Join our mailing list to be notified of any upcoming openings!

Alpine lakes, wide open views, pristine wilderness, a beautiful trail system, wildflowers, wildlife, and if it’s clear, the opportunity to photograph the giant triangular apex of Mt Assiniboine. There will be many unique photographic opportunities depending on when the trip is – spring, summer or fall.

A moderate level of fitness is required. Walking distances of between 6 – 10km per day with elevation gains of approximately 300 metres per day to reach the different areas in the region. You will need to be able to carry your camera gear & any necessities with you over these distances. A small group size limited to between 5-7 participants to keep our impact low and maximize your learning experience through my photography instruction & mentoring.

This could be a hut based adventure staying in the Naiset Huts OR a camping based adventure staying at the Lake Magog Campground (check with us if you are not sure which it is that you are booking). Participants will need to bring their own gear, along with food for the duration of our stay. Packing recommendations will be provided. It is a great way to unplug, get off the grid and connect with the outdoors!

I am a licensed guide in Mt Assiniboine Provincial Park with current first aid and advanced wilderness first aid certifications & have taken many prior trips into the Mt Assiniboine region. This workshop is suitable for all levels of photography experience as there will be many one on one opportunities throughout our time together. I will be by your side providing all that I know and love about landscape photography.

Pricing includes the helicopter flight transportation to and from the area from the Mt Shark helipad, your camping or hut reservation, 1v1 photography instruction throughout the trip, and a professional ACMG/IGA Hiking Guide.

What to Bring

A detailed list will be provided to you after booking. This will include camera gear, clothing/hiking gear, & food ideas. All of it will need to be fit into 1-2 bags that weigh no more than 40lb for the helicopter.

Start/Finish Time

We will meet in Canmore at 9am on the first day in order to convoy or carpool to the Mt Shark Helipad in Kananaskis. We will be back in Canmore around lunch time on the final day.


The Mt Assiniboine core area and its surrounding areas. We will chase the best opportunities for spectacular photos depending on the localized weather, season, and light angles.


Where do we meet for this on day 1?

We will meet in Canmore at a predetermined location at 9am on day 1.

Where can I get food on this trip?

You will need to bring all food with you. I will provide recommendations on what to bring. This means breakfast, lunch and dinners + snacks. Afternoon tea is available at Assiniboine Lodge as well so bring cash if you would like that.

What happens in the case of poor weather?

The Mt Assiniboine Wilderness Photography Workshops will go ahead regardless of the weather conditions. Your photographs will look interesting in all types of weather and some of the most creative and unique photos come from the most improbable conditions! Bring weather appropriate clothing.

What level of photographer is this for?

All! We enjoy taking out complete beginners and teaching them all about their equipment and nature photography just the same as if we have a more experienced photographer who prefers more location guiding, safety considerations & logistics than photo instruction.

Will I need to sign a waiver to participate?

Yes, we will bring it for you to sign when we meet on the day of the photo tour. A copy will be provided in advance for viewing.

What is the cancellation & refund policy?

There are no refunds, however we do consider requests on a case by case basis. See our terms & conditions.
