What Can You Expect During the Workshop?

  • We'll begin the workshop with some learning (approx. 1 hour). My goal is to provide a safe learning environment where everyone feels comfortable to ask questions and where we can all learn from each other.

  • Topics will include some photography basics and a particular focus on landscape photography settings.

  • We will then head out into the park and begin our photo adventure and learning.

 

Timing:

 

  • The day will include a fair bit of driving as it takes approximately an hour to travel from one end of the park to the other along Highway 60.

  • Get your rest before the weekend because Saturday will be a long day! 

  • Don't worry though! We'll have a short afternoon break. You could use this time to have a rest, review your photos or simply explore the park.

  • We will hike approximately 10km. Although most of the trails are well-worn, there will be some obstacles, such as rocks, roots, etc. Please ensure that you're wearing appropriate footwear.

  • A great group of like-minded people who will probably become fast friends!

 

Weather:

 

  • Be prepared for the elements as the workshop will proceed rain, snow, or shine!

 

Skill Level:

  • Our group will have a mix of photography skill levels and we'll all learn something new from each other.
