DATES: OCTOBER 2-7, 2016

Spend five luxurious nights in the majestic Canadian Rockies! Make the Fairmont Banff Springs and the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise your ultimate base camp while you capture the beauty of the Canadian Rockies and fine-tune your skills under the guidance of experienced photographers on this once-in-a-lifetime photography workshop.

Catered towards intermediate and advanced photographers, here’s your chance to explore the Rockies’ most iconic locations and hidden gems with award-winning landscape photographers Paul Zizka and Wayne Simpson. This workshop will bring you new confidence in many aspects of photography – including composition and techniques you can use in the field and in post-processing – and will help you maximize everything your mountain subjects have to offer.
