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.
