introduction

As the snowflakes descend and cast a white blanket over the land, the stunning landscape of the Canadian Rocky Mountains is transformed into a magical wonderland. Join Rocky Mountain Photo Adventures as we help you learn how to photograph nature's awe-inspiring handiwork throughout Banff National Park.

Learn how to improve your landscape photography skills in a world class destination. We will share our expertise in the field by helping you develop a method to create great compositions and understand the best use of camera filters and settings to achieve professional quality images.

​​​​Tour Description

This is a Banff photo tour with a difference! The adventure begins in Banff at sunrise photographing the iconic Mount Rundle and Vermilion Lakes, and ends with sunset in the wild and remote Kootenay Plains at world-renowned Abraham Lake. We'll stop along the Bow Valley Parkway and Icefields Parkway to capture its stunning scenery before reaching our final destination. Far off the beaten tourist track, the incredible frozen wonderland of Abraham Lakes methane bubbles and ice formations are not to be missed.

As with most of our Canadian Rockies Photography Tours, this tour is open to all photography skill levels, from beginner to advanced. Photography locations may involve a short hike through snow. Participants should be prepared for this and the below freezing temperatures of this mid-winter tour. All you need is warm clothing and a willingness to get outside in the winter to learn the art of winter landscape photography.

Main Locations We Visit

Vermilion Lakes Winter Abraham Lake and Banff Landscape Photography Tour

Vermilion Lakes

Typically Vermilion Lakes will be your next location after Two Jack Lake. Vermilion Lakes is located on the outskirts of the Town of Banff.  is one of the most visually and bio diverse areas in Banff National Park. The lakes are dominated by the visually impressive Mt Rundle that towers over the town east of the lakes, this area makes for fantastic early morning landscape images with cattails and winding creeks in the foreground, making for interesting compositions.

Castle Mountain

Castle Mountain, our last destination is about a 20 minute drive from Vermilion Lakes, roughly halfway to Lake Louise. It's impressive towers of rock and unique colour in the Canadian Rockies along with the mighty Bow River sweeping by in the foreground makes for great potential for later morning compositions.

Morant's Curve

About a 15 minute drive from Herbert Lake, our last destination is Morant's Curve. Made famous by CP photographer Nicholas Morant, this location is fantastic to capture that quintessential image of Canada with a train winding its way through epic mountain peaks. Here your photography guide(s) will help you get set up with the right settings to capture a moving train through the landscape. Because there is no guarantee of a train when we visit, we will wait here for an amount of time that our guides feel lis suitable while keeping in mind our tour times.

Abraham Lake and Methane Bubbles Winter Abraham Lake and Banff Landscape Photography Tour

Abraham Lake

Our final destination is Abraham Lake. We will arrive there with around a couple hours to photograph the oncoming sunset.

Highly recommended

Did the Abraham Lake & Banff Winter Tour and had an outstanding day. Mark and his team are very knowledgeable of the area and adjust to the existing light and weather conditions. They were very helpful and available to improve the skills of everyone in the group - I learned lots.

Abraham Lake was outstanding, a must if you are in the area in Winter.
