The Banff Landscape Photography Summit

  By Brian Merry

Jan. 8th-10th, 2016 at the Banff Park Lodge Featuring:
Robert Berdan, Ethan Meleg, Roy Ramsay, Kevin Gedling, Lori Homstol and Brian Merry

The Banff Photography Summit is more than just another landscape photography workshop.  It’s meant to be a haven for creativity.  It’s a weekend retreat from the hectic and numerous distractions of everyday life, so that you can turn your complete and undivided attention towards growing as a photographer in the glorious setting of the Canadian Rockies.  The Banff Landscape Photography Summit is a photography workshop where you can immerse yourself 100% into your photography and learn from leading professionals in the field.

The Vision:
Our goal is to help you perceive the world with wider eyes and to guide you on your own path towards your own honest and personal photographic experience.  My goal is to create a learning environment conducive to help you see more, feel more, and communicate more through your art, through your photography.  We all want you to become better photographers so we can all continue to create works of art that we can be proud of.  And this summit is designed to help you do exactly that.
