Landscape Photography Tour

Banff - Lake Louise - Canmore

Photograph the legendary icefield parkway and its iconic landscapes

*This is currently only offered as a chartered tour


This is a hands-on, in-the-field, photography tour that takes you away from the typical. Experience first-hand, the breathtaking wonder of sunrise at Moraine Lake without the crowds and then off to capture the magic of the Icefield Parkway to Jasper.

What the experience will be like:

It’s early morning. The sky is in pure darkness, and you’re surrounded by stillness. You, alongside your local photographer guide, are out on-location to shoot one of nature’s greatest shows: sunrise.

Before Banff stirs and the day begins, your camera gear is set-up and ready-to-go. You’re waiting for it to begin. You’re taking in the feeling of wonder and wilderness of the Park; the feeling of enjoying this place in isolation. This is where light and landscapes converge, and you’re ready to capture it in all its glory.

Take in the icons of the Icefield Parkway as many don’t see. Focus in on the first light illuminations that grace the peaks of Moraine and Bow Lake, the source of the mighty Bow River. Capture these world-renowned signature lakes, mountains and print-worthy viewpoints from a fresh perspective. No crowds, no lining up to frame a viewpoint or get that shot.

Your guide:

Your guide’s know-how and extensive experience of the Park will show you the way, giving you absolute peace of mind that you’re at the very best location and primed to get the photo result you’re striving for. All this, while taking in your serene surroundings - making a memorable experience for any photographer.

We have several locations listed below that are on our itinerary, however, as our tours are small we have the flexibility to make impromptu stops along the way if any location and light stands out for the guide or any of the guests on the tour.

Sunrise at Moraine Lake with Mark

I decided to kick off my trip with a personal photo session with Mark. It was a wonderful morning and I learned a ton. What was even better was before my trip Mark helped me pick our the right camera and I was in the market to buy. He taught me how to use my new equipment and snag every shot I was hoping to capture while in the mountains. He was so friendly and our entire morning together was just a lot of fun. Mark has travelled all over the world and it was so nice to converse with him about his adventures and exchange stories. I'm pretty into social media so Mark even helped me process and share the perfect image. All in one morning with RM Photo Adventures I learned how to use my new camera, snap the perfect shot, edit it and share it with family and friends by the time I got home. Learning to mask two photos for one final image was fascinating and made for the perfect print for my home. If I could I'd take Mark, his talent and photo and life insights on all my trips from now on, I would! Time spent with Rock Mountain Photos Adventures is irreplaceable.

Awesome private guiding session

Knowing the amazing photogenic places in Banff area I was looking for an instructor to help me to reveal the beauty of the surrounding nature using the photography. Doing my research on internet I have ended up on finding Rocky Mountain Photo Adventures and Mark. Coming from France with different knowledges in photography my husband and I spent 5 days private guiding session with Mark. For this awesome experience, we would like to highlight the competence of Mark and his great professionalism and sense of service. We, my husband and I, have learned so much. The post-processing lessons were also very informative. Everything was great and above all the effort provided by Mark to allow us to have the best photos in fonction of the spot location and the surrounding elements of the landscape independently of our photography skills and the moment of the day. Simply, we spent such a good time with Mark in incredible spots. Mark has changed our way to do photography to better reveal the natural beauty. We would definitely recommend Mark and Rocky Mountain Photo Adventures to anyone who loves photography, at any skill level.
