Long Weekend Workshops
A highlight reel of paradise for photographers, Western Canada and the US offer wild beaches, old growth rainforests, unique wildlife, refined gardens, majestic mountains as just a few of its photo subjects. Our Long Weekend Photo workshops are 3 - 4 days long and are based in the Pacific Northwest and Alberta.
Our leaders facilitate, mentor and guide our workshop/tour participants in the effective use of technology and techniques to develop each participants photographic knowledge and creativity. We bring avid photographers to the earth's most beautiful places at the right time of year to photograph subjects in the best light.
Our tour and workshop leaders are personable, friendly, and above all, passionate about photography and sharing the beauty of our wonderful world with “guests and locals”. They have developed plans A, B and if necessary plan C in case of sudden weather changes, interests of the group and time constraints to ensure that you see the best locations in the right light. We trust that you will leave the tour feeling like you just hung out with long time friends and that you will return to join us on another adventure.
Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world. It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.” – Ray Bradbury
A Northern Straits Photography international tour is a week-long adventure that takes you to a handpicked “wonder” location. We want to fill your eyes with wonder—help you see the world. Our photo tours are small. You’ll be travelling with, on average, just 10 other people with dedicated attention from two photography instructors/guides. We travel shoulder to shoulder with the locals to help facilitate unique cultural experiences, grand landscapes and a chance to explore more intimate locations.
