The Canadian Rockies are one of the most spectacular mountain ranges in the world and has some of the most wonderful scenery you will ever see. This workshop will be based in the heart of the Rockies at the Num-ti-Jah lodge (num-ti-jah.com) just north of Lake Louise. This is a truly spectacular place. The surrounding area, Bow Lake, Lake O’Hara, Mt Wilson and the Columbia Icefields Parkway will form the basis of our field trip locations. But it doesn’t stop there. The whole area is so rich photographically.
In September the autumn colours should be at their peak and we aim to match them photographically. The mountains are huge and snow capped and our aim will be to make images that reflect the majesty we see. Many field trips to those areas mentioned and more are planned during this week long workshop.
Your instructors for this exciting workshop will be Richard White from Australia and Craig Richards for Canada. Both are leaders in their field and both have taught workshops for many years. Meeting in the picturesque town of Banff you will enjoy the current exhibition at the Whyte Museum before we make our way deeper into the Canadian Rockies. Richard has made this journey several times and considers it to be one of the most awesome drives in the world. Craig has lived there for most of his life and knows the area intimately. It is in effect his back yard. Craig is currently Curator of Photography of the Whyte Museum in Banff. He is one of Canada’s leading landscape photographers.
