What you'll do

Explore The Battlefords region and capture stunning images of this prairie oasis, including landscapes, wildlife, rustic abandoned farm houses and iconic grain elevators from a bygone era. I'll not only be your host and guide, but provide expert and personally-tailored instruction in photography, whether you're using a DSLR, mirrorless camera, or the camera in your phone. You'll leave not only with some of the your travel photos, but also with a completely new set of skills that will 'level up' your photography everywhere you go! We'll meet in the quiet sanctuary of Finlayson Island, where we can discuss what you're hoping to improve with your photography and perhaps start off capturing some of the local wildlife, or composing landscape images as the North Saskatchewan river winds past us on either side. Next, depending on your interest, we can visit some of the historic sites of Battleford itself, including Fort Battleford (during summer open hours) - or optionally, we can head straight out of town and ramble down some of my favourite country roads in search of the perfect "living skies" landscape, iconic grain elevator, or abandoned piece of prairie history to photograph!
