This photography adventure is all about shooting what our mountains are internationally famous for... glaciers!!! During this one day workshop we will roam the Athabasca glacier with a mountain guide and Brad to show you how to create amazing photos of the colours, shapes, rivers and amazing features of glaciers! We'll be shooting the deep glacial moulins and mill holes. We will get an interpretive tour of the history and features of the glacier. We will go to the best spots for the best photos and have a fun adventure along the way! It's a great way to experience the beauty and grandeur of glaciers before they disappear.
Then, we will have a picnic lunch in an alpine meadow before Brad takes you to some of his favourite places to shoot in the Icefields area along the Banff/ Jasper parkway as we drive south toward Lake Louise.
The Columbia Icefield is the largest ice field in North America's Rocky Mountains. Located within the Canadian Rocky Mountains astride the Continental Divide along the border of British Columbia and Alberta, Canada, the ice field lies partly in the northwestern tip of Banff National Park and partly in the southern end of Jasper National Park It is about 325 square kilometres in area, 100 metres to 365 metres in depth. The glacier is the hydrological apex of North America. The melt water from the glacier flows to the Pacific, Arctic and Atlantic oceans. Brad has explored this glacier dozens and dozens of times shooting and climbing the surrounding peaks.
National Geographic calls the highway between Banff and Jasper one of the top three, most amazing drives on the planet!
Brad will show you his secret, favourite locations and show you how to create the best photos of flowers and lakes and hidden glaciers and waterfalls, mountain goats and sheep and all the glory and grandeur of this amazing place.
