HOW TO CHOOSE A PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP
As Spring and Summer approach some photographers are beginning to look for photography workshop opportunities. Based on 25 years experience teaching and also as student I thought I would share some thoughts on things to look for when choosing a workshop. Photography workshops can vary in price from $25 to over $10,000. When choosing a workshop you want to consider your budget, the location, your skill level, what you want to get out of the workshop, the instructors and the equipment you currently own. To read more tips on choosing a workshop click here. Also check out some of my upcoming workshops which include one on waterfalls in Revelstoke and my annual wildflower workshop in early June. In September I am offering an Arctic Adventure workshop for the third year in a row where participants photograph caribou, changing colours on the tundra and on clear nights the Aurora Borealis. Click on the picture to learn more about the Arctic Adventure workshop and read some of the ar ticles I have posted.
Group of Photographers on Arctic Adventure Workshop offered through Petersons Point Lake Lodge in the North West Territories. This workshop is offered each September on the Tundra and includes opportunities to photograph the Tundra in Autumn, migrating barren land caribou, and the Aurora on clear nights.

On the home page of the Canadian Nature Photographer I have placed new social media sharing buttons to facilitate sharing of the web site with your friends or anyone interested in learning more about nature photography. I am also working to recruit articles by some of the best photographers and ar tists in the world. In February, the web site had 3647 visits and 2401 unique visitors, up 12% from the previous month - thank you.
March in Alberta is a time of transition as winters grip begins to ease and the first eagles and tundra swans begin migrating north through the province around the middle of the month. It could get warm enough to see the first wild flowers (prairie croccus) along the Bow river. March may also be your last chance to grab some wintery photos before Spring arrives. Until next month....
