ACTIVITY LEVEL
9/10 for person of average physical fitness
This week-long photo tour in Tombstone Territorial Park, known as being 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 tour, you will stay in beautiful local accommodations as well as have the opportunity to fall asleep under the stars (and fingers crossed, northern lights) while camping and hiking throughout the park’s rugged, mountainous backcountry.
The small group size of each tour (six, including myself) will allow for a more intimate experience than larger, more expensive group tours. This trip is suitable for various levels of photography experience, from beginners to well-experienced photographers looking for that new technique or trick to help elevate their body of work. Throughout the trip there will be opportunities to focus on specific areas of photography you are most interested in developing further (night sky, long exposures, portfolio development & more). This tour will be a great opportunity to devote time to learning added photographic techniques from the initial idea to the final print, and all required steps in between.
