  • Scenic Mountain Portrait Experience
    We'll meet on the Minnewanka Loop in Banff National Park, and introduce ourselves. I send you a map the day before we meet up so we can find each other. You should be prepared for walking, so if your favourite shoes for photos are dainty, bring something sturdy and comfortable along. This is a gorgeous, versatile area with lovely views in all directions. Together, we will create beautiful images of you in our magnificent surroundings. There will be some easy trail walking and playful photos. Conditions (wind, rain, light direction) on our day will determine how our time will be used. During summer months when the road is open, we can go to a historic spot that has many physical remnants of the coal mining history in Banff. You will be encouraged to explore your sides, silly and serious. Bask in the breathtaking vista while you star in your very own photo shoot designed to be both relaxing and fun. You will receive medium sized, printable, shareable image files of our best 20-30 photos in 7-10 days. *Note: This experience is not necessarily private, but is likely to be. The number of guests on this experience is set for 8 so that families can sign up. It's also ideal for individuals, and couples. Please consider choosing the private option for your booking. *Not for weddings or commercial photography*

  • Explore the Canadian Rockies Photo Tour
    Our day trip will take you on a special journey; we’re going to have fun, learn new photography skills, walk in the wild, and I will show you my favourite parts of the Banff National Park. I’ll pick you up from Canmore or Banff at a stop convenient to you, then we head for the sunrise in the mountains! After chasing the morning light, we can stop for breakfast. In Banff National Park we’ll shoot giant peaks, turquoise lakes and rivers, and watch for elk and bears. We might explore a few mellow trails (I’ll cater length and level of activity to the desires of the group). A well-deserved lunch stop comes next during which we can edit photos you've taken that morning. I can share some editing tips & tricks to make your photos stand out. In the afternoon, we’ll explore the stunning area around Lake Louise or Yoho NP before I’ll return you to your place in Banff or Canmore. No matter your skill or gear, I can show you how to use your camera/phone, compose photos and work with light. If you're at a stage that you just want to be left alone to catch those fleeting moments or enjoy a quiet time, that’s perfect as well. I’m always here if you want a quick point to some good spots or angles. Dress well - layering is the key even in summer. You don't need to be an experienced hiker since all the spots are within a short walk. If a date you wish is unavailable, send me a message.

Your guide to Banff

All About Banff

There are two Banffs — summer Banff and winter Banff — and both are equally spectacular. Built as a resort town in the 1880s in the middle of Banff National Park, this picturesque western village, ringed by mountains, is the ideal base for a Canadian Rockies adventure.

In summer, hikers wander up Tunnel Mountain for a few hours or head deep into the backcountry for days. Canoes skate across the spectacular blue-green Lake Louise and Moraine Lake, whose waters are fed by glacier. Biking, mountain climbing, golfing, and outdoor sports may be the main draw, but they aren’t the only activities to enjoy: The Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity hosts concerts and plays, and the Whyte Museum brings together art and local history. When snow covers the mountains and valleys, Banff becomes a ski and snowboard town, with three resorts nearby. A snowshoe stroll around one of the lakes may bring you close to native flora and fauna.


How do I get around Banff?

Although Banff itself is easy to navigate on foot, driving may be your best option for getting there and around the park. Flights from all over North America connect with the Calgary International Airport (YYC), 90 miles east, and you can rent a car at the airport. From there, it’s a straight shot on the Trans-Canada Highway. Because you’re staying in a national park, every visitor needs to purchase a Park Pass (free for children under 18), either online or at the gate to the park.

But a car isn’t required. You can take a Banff Airporter shuttle bus from Calgary or catch a Greyhound bus. In Banff, Roam buses transport visitors to surrounding attractions from morning to late at night, and in the winter, all the ski resorts provide shuttles.


When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Banff?

You’ll want to wear active clothes for an activity-rich destination, but keep each season’s demands in mind. Summer lasts from June through September and peaks in July, when daytime temperatures regularly hit the 70s and 80s Fahrenheit. Remember: You’re high in the Rockies, so keep sweaters and light jackets on you to protect against the evening chill.

From January through March, Banff is covered in snow and ice — temperatures can easily plummet below zero Fahrenheit. The cold is dry, too, so be prepared with plenty of heavy layers and warm boots with good treads. In spring and fall, the temperature varies wildly, so pack for a wide range of conditions and check the local forecasts before you go.


What are the top things to do in Banff?

Banff Gondola

It takes eight minutes for the Banff Gondola aerial lift to sweep up the tree-covered slope of Sulphur Mountain to the upper platform, at an altitude of 7,500 feet, where mountain peaks stretch to the horizon. Cafes and restaurants allow you to linger at the heights, or if you prefer to stay outdoors, take a short hike along the ridge or gather around a fire pit in winter.

Upper Hot Springs

Geothermal hot springs emerging out of a massive fault in Sulphur Mountain brought visitors to Banff for the water cure in the late 19th century, and this outdoor pool, which averages 100 degrees Fahrenheit in winter and summer, continues to instill restorative bliss. (Bring a swimsuit, or rent one.)

Lake Louise

This gorgeous lake is almost as big a draw as Banff — even the spectacular 35-mile drive between the two cities is a must-do. The turquoise lake is cradled by a host of peaks. You can kayak or canoe in its glacial waters, hike up the domed Beehive mountains, or meander around the town of Lake Louise.
