Workshop Details

We will visit a vast array of locations in the area that are very well known to your workshop instructor from years of experience in the area. In order to get the best light for our scenes, we will be taking full advantage of sunrise and sunset golden hour. Sunset will be just after 10 pm, (the final light usually disappears just before midnight), and sunrise is at 530am. Blue hours are stunning in the Rockies and our shoots will extend into the night when the stars come out. The days are very long in Northern Alberta and twilight remains through most of the night, but it is still possible to view the moon and stars. So prepare to have some short nights at your hotel, don’t worry – you will definitely have some free time during the day to catch up on rest.

We will meet up at Becker’s Chalets on the afternoon of the first day for an introduction and some guidelines of what to expect during the workshop. A questionnaire to determine how what to develop in terms of photography skills will be emailed to participants a month before the workshop begins.

This workshop is open to all level of photographers, from beginners to those who are looking to master specific techniques and concepts.

“Monika & Mark found a way to capture every important moment we would hope for with our camera. Their knowledge of Jasper locations for Amazing captured of so many Wonderful moments. I would like to thank you guys for doing such a great job for us! You both are such talented photographers & knowledge teaching how to use our camera gave me the Best pics I’ve ever taken. I was thrilled with results of my Jasper in June Experience & with the time spent in Jasper during weekdays for less crowds.” – Charlene Tondu

“I attended the Jasper in June photography retreat as a way of reigniting my interest in photography. The workshop was an excellent mix of technical information and practical ways to implement the skills. Monika and Mark’s knowledge of the area was key in making sure we had a good balance of opportunities to photograph landscapes and wildlife. We were given opportunities to ask questions and get feedback on our images. The small group setting was ideal for ensuring each of us got what we needed from the retreat. I would definitely recommend the experience!” – Jen Russill
