For photographers looking for spectacular locations, CMH Summer Adventures offers access to some glorious hidden gems in Western Canada. Pack your camera equipment, hop aboard the helicopter and our guides will take you to places alive with colour and texture where the only sound you’ll hear will be shutters snapping.
In 2013, CMH Summer Adventures offers two photography-themed trips to choose from. Each trip is based from the luxurious Bugaboo Lodge in southeastern BC tucked into a corner of the Columbia Mountain Range. The lodge is ideally situated to pair your stay with time spent exploring the Canadian Rocky Mountain National Parks (Banff, Jasper, Kootenay and Yoho) to get your camera, and eyes, attuned to the wonders and beauty of western Canada.
Join acclaimed Canadian photographer John E. Marriott for an intensive three-day workshop in the Bugaboos. John will provide instruction on how best to capture trophy shots and intimate detail of the dramatic landscape in the Bugaboos. Photo locations will range from ridgelines to the shores of alpine lakes.
Limited to 10 photographers. August 8-11, 2013 $3,140 Cdn
Open to all photo enthusiasts, this three-day trip in the Bugaboos will focus on providing hikers and walkers access to spectacular landscapes for photography. No formal instruction will be provided, but time and space will be allowed in a variety of locations for photographers. Each evening at the lodge, informal discussions will take place amongst the photographers to share tips, ask questions and show their photos from the day. This trip is hosted by Canadian Geographic magazine’s PhotoClub, but is open to all photographers.
Limited to 20 guests. September 7-10, 2013 $2,640 Cdn
Each photography group will share the lodge with other Heli-Hikers, Walkers and High Flying Adventurers so travel companions who are not photographers are welcome to join these groups and spend the days hiking and walking, while the photographers focus on their art.
