Our base camp will be a set of cozy cottages near Nordegg, Alberta. The cottages are heated with electric heat and have a wood-burning stove. They are all equipped with a full-sized and fully stocked kitchen and BBQs. There are four-piece bathrooms with towels, a hairdryer, toilet paper, soap, shampoo, and conditioner. Each has one bedroom with a queen-size bed and a pullout couch in the living room if you would like to share a cabin with a friend. If you are bringing a non photographer partner, select the Single Occupancy Ticket.

Each cottage will require a $150 damage deposit upon check-in. It is the participants’ responsibility to pay for this deposit (cash or credit card). Guests are responsible for cleaning and maintaining their own cottage and area.
