Have you ever dreamt about photographing the amazing sceneries in the Canadian Rocky Mountains? Do you love natural landscapes and wildlife?
If you are a landscape or Nature photographer, whether amateur or professional, you will have replied to the previous questions with a “yes”. In this case, don’t wait anymore, this trip is just made for you. We have programmed and incredible trip organized by “B the travel brand”, that we will enjoy at its best photographing the precious sceneries and animals in Banff, Jasper and Yoho National Parks.
Apart from having previous experience in the destinations we will be visiting, we will also share with you the passion we feel for them, so we will be able to enjoy a unique trip, that will bring us extraordinary photographs.
Again, we offer you one of the most impressive Photography Trips that can be done, to the Canadian Rocky Mountains, as always organized by “B the travel brand” (formerly known as Barceló Viajes), and with landscape photographers Sergio Lanza and Juanra Noriega.
Although this is a perfect trip for any landscape, Nature or wildlife photographer anytime of the year, this time we have chosen October in order to benefit from some other facts that will bring an added value to all the photographers that join us in this adventure.
Traveling during these dates, we may still be able to capture the last autumn color but, at the same time, we may be lucky enough to presence the first snowfalls of the year, something that will allow us to enjoy even more, since we would have the chance to photograph this magical sceneries under the first snow of the year.
Furthermore, we will do several night photography sessions, because in October it’s very possible we could already see the aurora borealis or Northern Lights, so we will be checking the forecasts, trying to get the opportunity to photograph this incredible Nature phenomenon in this Photography Trip. Apart from this, the area of Canada where we will be staying is known for its slow light pollution levels, and that will help us to capture those majestic landscapes at its best, also at night.
Apart from having the trip completely programmed and prepared, we also have alternative options for all the trip, but also will be continuously checking the weather and aurora borealis forecasts, so we have the best possible options to benefit from the best lights and, if lucky enough, to photograph such a wonderful phenomenon.
And, since it is not high season, the locations we will be visiting won’t be as crowded as in summer, allowing us to enjoy more this experience in one of the most beautiful areas on Earth.
This twelve days (eleven nights) long Photography Trip will take place in Banff, Jasper and Yoho National Parks, in Alberta and British Columbia.
With a trip this long, we will get to enjoy the best from the trip, being able to enjoy Nature and the incredible surrounding we will have around us. We have designed this program so we can do many things in each location but, at the same time, without being constantly in a hurry. We want to enjoy each second and feel the emotion of photographing each one of the places we visit, without having to check what is the time.
Our way of programming and organizing a Photography Trip, means we want to feel the trip in all its phases. First of all, before the trip itself, when we design the locations we will be photographing. Then, obviously, during the trip. But we also want you to enjoy the trip once the trip is ended, and we are working for that, trying to design the best possible experience during the trip, but also preparing activities for later, in collaboration with “B the travel brand”.
Furthermore, as in the rest of our trips, you will have the advantage of traveling with photographers that already know those places, and whose Canada images have been published by such prestigious media such as Microsoft, Expedia, Conde Nast Traveler, Backpacker Magazine or the Huffington Post, just to name a few.
To get the best possible images, we will be always searching for the best possible light conditions. Because of that, we will wake up very early every single day and, at the same time, we will also photograph each sunset and evening in Canada (always depending on conditions). We have perfectly programmed the locations for each sunrise and sunset session, but we may change those plans always depending on conditions (light, weather, road conditions, etc.). You will only have to worry about being there to press the shutter of your camera, we will take you to the perfect place.
Among all those fabulous landscapes, we can count many of the lakes of the area, each of them with its characteristic color, from emerald green to the bluest turquoise you can imagine. In this trip, we will be able to photograph at least around 20 of these precious lakes, many of them in our sunrise or sunset shooting sessions. Some of them, as Moraine, Peyto, Maligne or Emerald Lakes, will be among the most important destinations of our trip, but we will also get splendid photographs in many other lakes.
Apart from the lakes, we will also photograph canyons, waterfall, rivers or creeks, that will be lovely for any landscape photographer. And also magical glaciers, as Athabasca Glacier, as well as many other locations where we will be able to capture hundreds of great images.
At the same time, we will capture peaks and mountain ranges, searching for the most beautiful lights from each day, the reflections on the lakes, or taking long exposure shots playing with the clouds and their movements.
The Canadian Rocky Mountains area also brings us extraordinary chances to spot and photograph many wildlife species, so it’s a perfect destination for wildlife photographers too.
We can highlight the black and grizzly bears, the elk, the moose, the Dall Sheep, the Beaver, the mountain goat, the coyote, the lynx or even the cougar and the wolf. Although it would be almost impossible to spot all these species in a 12 days long trip, we will spend quite time searching for this animals, driving trough the areas where they use to be spotted.
The elk rut, that takes place in September, often lasts till the first weeks in October, so we have chances to enjoy such an incredible landscape spectacle.
As our partner travel agency, “B the travel brand”, one of the largest travel agencies in Spain, with more than 700 offices, manages all the logistic and organization of the trip. This gives us enough time to focus only on the photographic part of the trip, being able to plan all the details for such a wonderful trip.
We don’t like experiments, so we just prefer to work for a top travel company, with many years of experience in the travel sector, which means maximum guarantees for our clients.
To sum up, talking about the Canadian Rocky Mountains is talking about one of the best possible destinations for Nature lovers. When joining this passion with photography, we get the perfect trip for any photographer, no matter the level, from the beginner to the professional. It’s really hard to find any other area on Earth that offers so many spectacular locations in such a relatively small area. A real photography expedition to one of the most beautiful zones all around the world.
By other hand, despite this is a Photography Trip, in case you need it, we will also help you using your camera and gear, tripod, neutral density and graduated filters, remote control, etc., so you can also get fantastic results even you are new into photography. At the same time, we can also help you to understand all the theoretic concepts of photography, and then taking then into practice. Because of this, we can also talk about a workshop part in our trips, as long as our clients need it.
It is also possible that we organize some quick post processing sessions, in which we can see how to process some of the images we have taken during our trip. These sessions could take place after lunch any of the days, because it would be the worst light moment.
