BMFF Youth Adventure Photography Workshop – Exhibition

  By Kaitlyn Kerr


In 2018, the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival introduced a workshop for thirteen youths to introduce them to adventure photography. The Camera Store, in partnership with Nikon Canada, were proud to sponsor the weekend event where everyone received instruction on shooting with manual settings and several opportunities to take photos around Banff. For many, this was the first time they had ever taken photos on a DSLR camera. At the end of the weekend, each student chose a favourite photo that they took to be exhibited.

These photos are now on display in the Banff Public Library from April 1st to 29th, 2019. A reception to celebrate the exhibition will take place on Friday, April 26th, 2019 from 4pm-6pm.

Students work on capturing photos using manual settings during the Youth Adventure Photography workshop as part of the Banff Mountain Film and Book Festival in October 2018.
