Capture the majestic fall colours of Algonquin Park

This workshop will be led by landscape photographer David Sornberger and consist of in-field instruction and, of course, lots of time exploring Algonquin Park with our cameras.

 

Workshop Date:

 

  • Starts 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 3, 2020

 

According to the Friends of Algonquin Park website, while hard to determine the exact peak of the Sugar Maple and Red Maple fall colour, it is typically the last week of September or the first week of October. Shortly after, the poplars (aspens), Tamaracks, and Red Oaks hit their best.

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.

This is how David approaches all of his photo tours:


Every tour leaves at a carefully planned time to optimize the experience. The group spends the perfect amount of time at each location to get the necessary shots. David leaves nothing to chance!

 

David is very down to earth! Absolutely ALL abilities are very welcome. If you want to learn more about your camera then that's what David will give you. He takes pride in getting people "up to speed" in a short amount of time.

 

Two of David's passions are travel and photography so he has decided to meet somewhere in the middle, between a traditional tour guide and a photographer. During the 6 hour workshop, David will tell you stories about each outstanding landmark that you pass, plus the best angle to take a picture from.

 

In a nutshell, David's workshops and tours have been designed by him to give you the perfect photographic experience in Algonquin Park.

 

David promises that you will finish our workshop with a new love of Algonquin Park, pictures to make family and friends jealous and new photography skills that you will use for years to come.​

David is a proud supporter of The Friends of Algonquin Park.
