This week-long photo workshop in Tombstone Territorial Park, known as The Patagonia of Canada, is designed to take you to some of the parks most beautiful locations, including Talus, Divide and Grizzly Lakes. During the trip, you will stay in top-rated local hotels and have the opportunity to camp and photograph the rugged, mountainous backcountry of the Tombstone mountains for four nights.
The small group size of this tour (6 participants, 2 guides) will allow for a more intimate experience than larger, more expensive group tours. This trip is suitable for various levels of photography experience, from enthusiastic beginners to seasoned professionals looking for unique portfolio photos. Throughout the trip there will be opportunities to focus on specific aspects of photography you are most interested in developing further (long exposures, night sky shooting, focus stacking, high dynamic range blending, portfolio development, location scouting & more). This trip will be a great opportunity to learn techniques required for unique outdoor photography, while learning from Canadian outdoor photographers, Chase Teron + Jake Graham.
