In summary these nature photography tours take in various locations within Jasper National Park. Any media (digital or film) or format are acceptable, and you should be reasonably familiar with your equipment.

The daily destinations are agreed between the organizer and participants on the day of the tour to take into account local weather, subject, lighting or trail conditions.

The summer photography tours in the park start early – 6:30am (orientation) and are very involved with the tour running until 5:00pm in the evening. Some of the tours will continue into dusk to capture the beautiful evening light (weather permitting). The tours are held on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of June, July and August. A full 10 hours of shooting the Canadian Rockies at various vistas within the park. The participant should expect to spend maximum time in the field. A light lunch is provided, however each person is responsible for their own comfort. It is recommended that participants pack extra trail food and drinks for their comfort.

Jasper National Park provides a fantastic variety of options for landscape photographers: lush forests, crystal clear lakes, beautiful mountains and their trails and animals. Jasper National Park is the largest national park in the Canadian Rockies, spanning 10,878 km² (4200 mi²). Wildlife in the park includes elk, caribou, moose, mule deer, white-tailed deer, mountain goat, bighorn sheep, grizzly bear, black bear, beaver, Rocky Mountain pika, hoary marmot, gray wolf, mountain lion, and wolverine, Cameron sees Jasper as the crowning jewel of the Canadian Rockies.

Our day tours start at 0630h with a brief orientation (this is bear country). After orientation we spend the day shooting at various locations throughout the park. Knowledgeable and experienced professional photographer Cameron Keith will be available to answer questions, offer guidance and advice, and help with equipment. In the evenings Cameron will be available to help with post-processing the images at Sunwapta Falls Resort for those interested.

You are reminded while on any photography tour to “Take the picture and leave nothing”. The organizers re-enforce the notion of “Leave No Trace”, so expect to haul all personal garbage back out.
