Winter Weather and Participant Requirements
This will be an active course in accessible winter conditions. We run this in late winter to ensure the best chance of winter beauty coupled with milder winter temperatures.
You will learn to shoot comfortably in the cool weather but are expected to have reasonable fitness to travel with equipment on foot. You will also need to have approriate winter clothing – a list of appropriate clothing/equipment will be provided. Questions? Just ask.

“The preparatory discussion was very beneficial as it gave me an excellent idea of what I was to bring.
The chosen location was perfect.
I appreciated the fact that you provided suggestions when you saw something of interest which had gone totally unnoticed by me (e.g. getting the star bursts behind the evergreens).” France Rivet / PolarHorizons.com
“Is this a digital or film course?”
It is a photography course – about creating better pictures. The emphasis is on your skills behind the camera and your ability to effectively use the camera you have. Digital cameras will make in-the-field critique easier. Film shooters are very welcome. Do not worry about your equipment – all you need is an SLR camera and lens(es) – “point and shoot” cameras are not suitable for this course.
Space is limited! A $125 deposit (tax included) is required to reserve your spot. You may also pay the whole fee of $350 + tax = $395.50
