Canadian Summer Art Workshops
Painters and photographers, here’s the perfect summer trip for solo travelers: a chance to study with the masters in British Columbia’s immense and thrilling Bugaboos mountain range — some of the most extraordinary natural scenery in the Americas.
From August 5-8, 2012, guests of Canadian Mountain Holidays Summer Adventures can enroll in a “Photography Workshop with John E. Marriott,” acclaimed wilderness photographer. This is his third straight year of alpine adventures. The chopper will fly your small camera-totin’ group into virgin wilderness to capture the most dramatic digital images of wildflowers, jagged granite spires and glacial lakes. In the evenings, join Marriott back at the lodge for gourmet alpine dinners served family-style and hang out for evening discussions of techniques and technology. CAD 3,065. (approx $3,090).
