“Advanced” Courses – For Even More Fun

Read more about our Advanced Packages here.

So you’re here! Welcome! What you’re probably wondering is what we mean by “advanced”? Well our “Advanced” courses are for people looking to do more than our core 5 courses. In general, we hope that you have taken our Digital I and Digital II courses as these courses assume you have a pretty good understanding of your camera. We certainly don’t expect you to be a master of photography. Remember our courses are accessible and designed for everyone. These courses are extensions of our core courses and are designed to teach you more content – but in the same, non-intimidating way that we always teach you!

They’re still fun, informative, and easy to follow. So come along today for even more photography fun!

Digital III – Landscapes & Travel

 

Take the next step in your photographic journey with our specially designed Digital III course! Join us as we take-on nature and travel through the mountains focussing on Landscape & Travel Photography. Keeping on the theme of incredible locations, this course will take place in Banff. We will be visiting a handful of the world’s most outstanding viewpoints and photographic locations in this jewel of the Rocky Mountains.

From time to time we will take the course to other spectacular locations such as Sunshine Meadows, The Bow Valley Parkway and Lake Louise. Stay tuned for these one-off locations or get in touch with us to put in your request!

Our Digital III course is truly a Learn Photography Canada premier product combining everything that makes our courses so great: brilliant locations, great teaching, friendly relaxed atmosphere, and most importantly, photography skills for photos worth framing!

Let us roll out the red carpet and treat you to an incredible, first class mountain experience.
