Canadian Wildlife and Nature Photography Workshops
I teach a very limited number of wildlife and nature photography workshops geared specifically towards beginner and intermediate wildlife photographers. Unlike my photo tours, where I'm there to get great photos just like you are, I concentrate my attention in my workshops on you. They are designed to give you as much photo instruction as you desire and to make you a better photographer. However, the workshops are also intended to get you into some great situations with a variety of wildlife and landscapes in the hopes that you'll not only learn a lot, but also come away from them with some phenomenal images.
I'm excited to have two Jasper wildlife photography workshops in 2019, one run by myself at the end of October and another one early in November led by Canadian wildlife photographer Colleen Gara. Note that there are a maximum of 5 spots available on these wildlife photography workshops.
2019 Jasper National Park Wildlife and Nature Photography Workshops
Trip Departure Point: Jasper, Alberta, Canada
Workshop w/ John E. Marriott Dates: October 27-November 1, 2019 (SOLD OUT)
Workshop w/ Colleen Gara Dates: November 3-8, 2019 (2 of 5 spots available)
Five days, five nights in the gorgeous Canadian Rockies photographing wildlife and spectacular scenery with professional wildlife and nature photographer John E. Marriott, author / photographer of the Canadian bestsellers, Wildlife of the Canadian Rockies: A Glimpse at Life on the Wild Side and Tall Tales, Long Lenses. Participants can also choose to attend the second workshop with renowned Canadian wildlife photographer, Colleen Gara (visit Colleen's website here), which we're offering to provide a less expensive alterantive to the same wonderful workshop in one of Canada's finest wildlife photography locations, Jasper National Park -- boasting some of the world's largest bighorn sheep rams, an incomparable elk rut, a full range of wild predators, and spectacular mountain backdrops.
By late October / early November in the fall, most of the park's crowds are gone and as the days get shorter, the wildlife becomes more and more active in anticipation of winter. Workshop participants may get opportunities to photograph elk, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, mule deer, moose, coyotes, red fox, wolves, black bears, bald eagles, and more, in a variety of conditions. The primary focus of this workshop will be on enhancing your skills as a beginner or intermediate wildlife photographer while photographing wildlife throughout the park.
Your workshop leader, John E. Marriott, is a former Parks Canada naturalist, wildlife viewing guide, and hiking guide. He is now considered to be one of Canada's premier wildlife and nature photographers and is the contributing editor for wildlife photography for Outdoor Photography Canada magazine. John has been photographing in Jasper National Park since 1993 and is an expert on where and when to find the park's wildlife.
Your second workshop leader, Colleen Gara, is one of Canada's rising young stars in wildlife photography. Colleen has scouted for John's workshops in Jasper for several years and is intimately familiar with the park and where to find wildlife. She has co-led workshops and tours for OFFBEAT to Namibia and Antarctica and was on a number of John's regular tours before turning professional in 2017.
