Lake Louise Fall Festival | Photography Weekend Package | The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise

Fall Photography Weekend Package

Have you ever wanted to learn how to better capture the magic of the Canadian Rockies using your camera? Join us at The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise and Richard Berry, professional nature photographer, for an amazing photography workshop weekend in October.

‘Take Better Photographs' workshop is aimed at beginner and intermediate photographers who use either compact or 'SLR' digital cameras. It comprises of presentations and discussions at Chateau Lake Louise, a photography field trip beside the lake and a critique session.

During your photography vacation, lectures will look at three important aspects of photography; understanding your camera, creating beautiful compositions and knowing where to find the best light. Richard will also offer great tips on how to maximize your chances of taking great wildlife and landscape photographs. Due to the small group size, Richard will have time to help everyone one-on-one and to answer your photography questions.

The team at the Chateau Lake Louise will take care of every detail to make sure that your photography vacation in the mountains is a pampered, magical experience. You deserve this time to immerse yourself in the beauty and nature of Banff National Park while honing your photography skills and capturing your memories. Feel comfortable to come by yourself or invite a couple of friends, your partner, a sibling or a co-worker.
