A new collection of images from the past year. Full size panoramas will be available for order shortly.
Come and enjoy the many splendours of the Kananaskis Provincial Park & Banff National Parks in Alberta, Canada during the peak of the Canadian winter. Explore parts of the Canadian Rockies in both a location and in a season few photographers ever witness. Come and see the amazing sunrise and sunsets of the Rocky Mountains and visit some of the hidden gems of landscape photography.
Please note that this is not a teaching style photo workshop but rather an intense photo tour emphasizing maximum time and opportunity for field photography. Please note that these tours are for people with a keen interest in photography who want in-depth immersion into field photography with a group of like-minded individuals (six to seven participants max). In all tours there will be ample opportunity to share experiences and techniques with other participants. Please be advised that you should be fit enough to hike with your gear in winter conditions.

If anyone has any ideas or suggestions, please feel free to let me know and we can incorporate it into the day’s lesson.
Bow Lake and Peyto Lake make for some magnificent sunrise opportunities. Maligne lake coming up shortly…
