Treat Yourself to a Banff Photography Day Trip

  By Evelyn Drake

On March 25th, treat yourself to a fun-filled photography day trip to Banff, Alberta. This event is sponsored by Nikon Canada and hosted by Calgary’s Beers & Cameras YYC team. We will take you to some incredible destinations to photograph the rocky mountains and any critters along the way, followed by a beer tour and tasting at the Grizzly Paw Brewery. 

A luxury mini-bus will pick us up at The Camera Store in Calgary at 8:00 AM, and we will depart for the mountains. We will make a couple stops along the way to capture the incredible scenes. You will have experts on hand to help you with your camera settings, and other tips to nail your photographs. 

One of the experts on board for this trip is Jay Gough, who is the Western Canada Technical and Nikon Professional services rep for Nikon Canada. A lifelong Nikon Shooter, Jay has extensive knowledge of the Nikon and NIKKOR System. When not doing his daily duties for Nikon, he can most often be found somewhere in the wilderness, chasing the perfect light for an image of the landscapes and wildlife that are prominent in beautiful Western Canada.

Although this trip is proudly sponsored by Nikon Canada, we welcome all camera-makes on this trip and will have Alex, Kaitlyn, and Ron from The Camera Store who are experts on Canon, Sony, Panasonic, Olympus, Pentax, Fujifilm cameras and more. 

Registration is $149.95 and includes, transportation (to and from Calgary), instruction along the way, a brewery tour and tasting with snacks, swag and more. 

The March 25th day-trip is limited to 16 spots. If you would like to join us on this adventure, Click Here to Register!
