Our helicopters are flown by experienced mountain pilots who work closely with our knowledgeable guides. Together, they'll take you to all the best (and safest) vantage points for shots, and memories, that you won't believe.
Rest your brain and your limbs at the end of a long day of learning in our Bugaboos and Bobbie Burns Lodges, where you can unwind and trade tips with your fellow students – or find some liquid inspiration at the bar.

Our overall plan is to capture a morning sunrise, various different landscapes each day and a sunset shoot. Our guide/photographer team provides us with as many photo opportunities as possible in a time frame that allows us to fully explore the possibilites in each area.

To complement the field workshop, we’ll have daily slide presentations demonstrating a variety of photographic topics such as lighting, composition, macro photography, and much more.
