Drumheller – Workshop

A unique geographic area rich in history and unusual scenery. In this full weekend workshop you will have a chance to work in a small group, which means the topics of the workshop are custom tailored to fit your photography needs. Darlene consults with each student individually to make sure that any areas you are having difficulty with will be covered. You also get individual help on location during photo shoots to make sure you come away with your best shots.

Some special surprises include a night photo shoot at a ghost town, sunrise and sunset photo opportunities, and a model shoot in an old mine.

Why Photography Travel Tours?

I believe that when you expand your own context of the world, you can’t help but change and grow as a person and as a photographer. To see the world, experience all it has to offer, is to truly live to the fullest.

“Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” — Helen Keller

Our photo travel tours are designed around the best light, the best locations and more time at each location!

We travel or experience the culture… we learn or relax when the light is harshest and shoot when the light is best. It’s a custom designed travel tour, by photographers for photographers.

I’m guessing that if you’ve found this page you agree with me and Helen Keller and are up for a little adventure. I’d love nothing more than if you joined me and we shared that experience together for a while.

Come along, let’s explore!
