Painting Workshop Itinerary

In early September, the colours are beginning to change with the season, providing an array of beauty to capture on your canvas. On this three day painting workshop, participants will have the opportunity to paint with and learn from two internationally known painters. Each day we will visit a variety of spectacular mountain landscapes via helicopter from our luxury mountain retreat: CMH Bugaboo Lodge. Our focus will be on capturing valuable reference for studio paintings, and on developing our skills as painters, including important aspects of colour, value, design, and technique. Note: August 31 is a bonus day of plein air instruction in Banff.

John E. Marriott, Wilderness Photographer

After 5 successful trips, John is excited to return to CMH Summer Adventures for 2 Photography Workshops at CMH Bugaboos: August 2-5, 2015 and August 5-8, 2015. In early August the sun shines brightly on clear mountain lakes and gives life to meadows ablaze with wildflowers. Vibrant reds, purples and yellows carpet the meadows providing beautiful contrast to the jagged spires and ancient glaciers of the Bugaboo Range. Learn more about John E. Marriott »

Photography Workshop Itinerary

On these 3 day workshops, ten participants will have the opportunity to learn from John in one of Canada's most dramatic mountain landscapes. This low participant ratio ensures that you will make the most of your time in the mountains and come away from the experience with valuable new skills. In addition to lots of field time in a variety of landscapes accessed with approximately 10 helicopter flights, John will be presenting a slideshow with more tips and techniques to aid you in your photography back at CMH's Bugaboo Lodge.
