A land you never imagined could exist, Namibia, like no other, combines the spectacular, the endless, the surreal. Namibia is, in one word, otherworldly. Vast, ancient and extremely sparsely populated, it contains an unimaginable variety and combination of natural landscapes. Join me on a photographic adventure of a lifetime, and wonder in awe at the world’s second largest canyon, islands of ancient mountains surrounded by an infinite sea of golden grasses, the expanse of the world’s tallest, and surely most beautiful, ochre colored dunes, the plains of an earth churned and folded by infinite geological forces, the jaw dropping vista of gigantic dune fields extending to the very edge of the Atlantic ocean, and the unparalleled wildlife viewing opportunities in the North. Namibia is nothing other than a photographer’s dream. Learn more.

The Peel River Watershed is one of Canada’s most striking and pristine mountain river watersheds– a region of mountains, deep canyons, plateaus, wetlands and rolling hills, laced by rivers. Sprawling over 68,000 square kilometres, it dwarfs more famous landscapes, such as Banff and Yellowstone national parks–in size, unspoiled splendor and ecological integrity. The experience that awaits you almost defies description. After a 1 hour flight by float plane over the most pristine, vast and wild mountain landscape you have ever seen, we land in a high altitude lake, in the middle of a land deeply contorted and churned by geological forces – unique, strange and utterly beautiful. You will find yourself hiking down the middle of a V shaped, gently sloping tundra plain, bordered on the one side by towering mountains, with elevation gains of as much as 1000 m and on the other side by gothic, black mountain outcrops, rising abruptly out of steep mountain sides, permeated by rushing rivers and waterfalls. Wherever you go, something new awaits and you will feel an intense urge to explore. Wander along the valley and reach a plateau from where you see a rushing stream tumble over several waterfalls as it makes its way down a deep canyon and continues its journey, meandering at the base of steep mountain sides covered in colourful autumn tundra. Hike up towards the black gothic mountain outcrops and discover new mountain lakes, perched precariously on a ledge overlooking the tundra valley where our campsite, now so small that it is barely visible, is based. And at night capture the booming aurora over majestic mountain peaks as it is reflected in the calm waters of lakes and the many small ponds and tarns which dot the landscape. This is a land that asks to be explored, discovered and captured and you will be one of the first serious photographers to do so! Learn more.

A vast wilderness that is world famous, the Canadian Rockies are one of the most extravagantly beautiful mountain ranges on Earth and a landscape photographer’s dream. The opportunities for photography are endless, from still, turquoise colored lakes, rushing rivers, towering waterfalls and deep canyons, to soaring, snow capped mountain peaks and beautiful night skies. Join us on a journey through the rugged mountain ranges to spectacular Castle Mountain and stunning Moraine Lake, a pristine turquoise colored mountain lake guarded by ten towering peaks. Travel with us along one of the most scenic drives in the world, the Icefields Parkway, which parallels the Continental Divide, and which will provide you with unforgettable panoramas of unspoiled natural wonders framed by rugged peaks and sweeping valleys. We will be visiting the Rockies in autumn, and some lovely autumn colours will add that extra touch to the majestic mountain scenery you will be capturing. Learn more.

A land that needs little introduction, the Canadian Rockies are a landscape photographer’s dream. However, it is in the remote, vast and little visited back country where the real magic lies. It harbours natural treasures of a beauty one would not have thought could exist. British Columbia’s pristine, wild and utterly beautiful Assiniboine Provincial Park counts as one of the most spectacular, breath taking back country locations the Rockies have to offer. Join us on a helicopter ride into the backcountry of Assiniboine Provincial Park. From high above, you will have the opportunity to gaze in awe at the jagged, never-ending mountain ranges. This is the time of the year when the larches turn golden, and we will be lucky enough to capture them as they beautifully complement the majestic mountain scenery!

Seemingly hidden at the end of the world, a vast, spectacular coast line traces the southern most edge of the African continent. A land of extremes, you will be left breathless by the sight of rugged coastal mountains towering over a wild ocean while, a stone’s throw away, Africa’s wild animals feed on gentle plains covered in blossoming wildflowers. Wonder in awe at one of the world’s most beautiful coastal cities from atop Table Mountain, penguins frolicking on giant granite boulder strewn white beaches, and lush forests rolling down to the sea where ancient rivers have carved their path through rocky ravines. But we will visit not only the coast line. There are many inland treasures such as the Overberg, South Africa’s answer to Tuscany, the unsurpassed scenery of the Cape winelands, and the excellent opportunities for viewing herds of wild elephants and the “Big Five” in one of South Africa’s largest National Parks. Join me on a photographic adventure of a lifetime, and come explore with me my home country, which we rightly call “A World in One Country”. Learn more.

Thanks for an awesome trip. Visiting Africa and photographing a safari was very high on my list of life goals, and you made the trip absolutely awesome, spectacular, educational, and fun! I can’t really say how memorable and enjoyable it was. Jim Sinkovic – “Surreal Namibia” Photography Tour
Really the workshop was even better than I could have hoped. Not just the great weather and surroundings and the choice spots you picked but your low key but still rigorous approach. I learned a ton! You struck the right balance between a variety of hands on work in the field, a great mixture of techniques and sharing your wealth of very practical and useful knowledge. Most of all I appreciated the shear joy you take in photography, it was totally infectious! Don’t ever lose that —it’ll take you (and those you teach) far. Marina Klein – “Algonquin Autumn Splendour” Photography Workshop

Everything was perfect; great company ,wonderful accommodations but most we appreciate your professionalism.Thank you again for the unforgettable adventure in Namibia. Simon Dadouche and Marie Lamarche – “Surreal Namibia” Photography Tour
The workshop in one word was “inspiring”. Your knowledge and passion for photography mixed with the fact that you want to share this with others made the workshop not only an amazing learning experience, but left me with such an excitement and thirst to go out and shoot more and apply the lessons you had taught. I got so much more from the workshop than I expected. The only thing I would have wished more from it, would have been more time. Troy Popovitch – “Absolute Best of the Canadian Rockies” Photography Workshop
Two great gifts that you gave me at the workshop: a starting point, and the permission to be my own artist. Your diversity as an artist was inspiring. Your passion for creating was obvious. Your desire to teach others selflessly was apparent. Kristen Thorogood – “Absolute Best of the Canadian Rockies” Photography Workshop
