Frame & Feast (Banff Hotel Pickup)

While immersed in the awe-inspiring landscape of Banff National Park, we want you to take more than a photographed memory home with you, we want you to remember the experience for a lifetime. Landscapes dawned in warm morning light, the native plants that grow in this extreme terrain, the smell of fresh pine, and a mouth-watering meal energized by the region’s food sources awaits you. We’ll help you wrangle the stark contrast between the sunrise-lit mountains, the not-yet-lit lakes that line their bases, and the bright yellows, oranges, and deep blues that paint the sky. Depending on your previous experience, we’ll teach you the best set-up and settings for your camera gear or geek out with you over the newest trends and techniques. You’ll see first-hand how to create jaw-dropping images with the Rocky Mountain Photo Adventures team then indulge your inner foodie at Canmore’s newest farm to table, or as we like to call it forage to table experience at The Sensory.
