Introduction

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

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.

Tour Description

Take in the turquoise waters and the majestic Ten Peaks at iconic Moraine Lake, one of Banff's most spectacular glacier lakes in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. Focus in as the first light of morning casts it’s warm glow on the Ten Peaks.  

The tour will then head to several more locations, depending on time and light conditions. Your guide’s know-how and extensive experience in Banff National 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.

Main Locations We Visit

moraine lake at sunrise landscape photography tours banff rocky mountain photo adventures

Moraine Lake

Moraine Lake is our first stop and arguably the best place in Banff National Park to photograph sunrise. With its towering Ten Peaks that hug the shoreline of the turquoise blue glacial waters of the lake, this place is quintessential Canadian Rockies.

The drive to Moraine is about 1.5 hours from Canmore, 1 hour from Banff and 30 minutes from Lake Louise. Upon arrival to the Moraine Lake parking lot, your guide(s) will give you a quick run down on camera settings and get everyone set up with tripods and a hot drink. Your guide(s) will then lead you up to the Moraine to get set up with a perfect composition for sunrise.

Herbert Lake

Typically Herbert Lake will be your next location after Moraine Lake. Herbert Lake is a fantastic location to look for amazing reflections in its emerald waters of the Bow Mountain range that surrounds the village of Lake Louise and Moraine Lake.

morants Curve Summer Banff Landscape Photography Tours and Workshops Rocky Mountain Photo Adventures

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.
