Customizable travel photography tours in Banff and Yoho National Parks
From Lake Louise to Mt Rundle, Banff National Park is home to some of Canada’s most photogenic landscapes.
While it’s easy to feel inspired by the Canadian Rockies and the images that likely inspired your visit, it’s always difficult to plan your own landscape shoot in unfamiliar locations. Learning how light and weather interact with the local landscape takes years, which is why Jeff Bartlett is excited to offer these one-on-one photography workshops in Banff and Yoho National Park. With nearly a decade experience photographing the Canadian Rockies, Jeff promises to use his intimate knowledge of this landscape to help you capture the best possible images during your visit.

Accommodation in Banff
Camera – While it truly doesn’t matter if you bring the latest mirrorless camera or an iPhone, I recommend either a mirrorless camera or dSLR.
Lenses – Whenever possible, I recommend a wide angle lens and a telephoto. My go-to travel combo is always the 16-35mm and 70-200mm lenses.
Tripod – Essential for low light photography, bring a tripod that’s small enough you’ll carry it around but large enough that it’ll support your camera.
Filters – Although they’re far from necessary, both ND and graduated ND filters are excellent tools to carry.
Spare batteries – It’s always important to carry a backup battery, especially in the winter when cold temperatures drastically reduce battery life.
Memory Cards – We’re going to some of the Rockies’ most iconic landscapes, so make sure to bring enough memory cards to capture images along the way!
“Jeff is a natural teacher. He is relaxed and easygoing, with a keen eye for his student’s strengths and weaknesses and a willingness to put himself second and their experience first.”
Kita Roberts, return participant
I focus on the art and craft of adventure, blending photography, video and writing with a keen passion for story. Since returning to Canada in 2011, after four years abroad, I have lived and worked in the Canadian Rockies. My clients include online publications like National Geographic, Afar.com, and Geo Magazine; destination marketing organizations, including Travel Alberta and Banff Lake Louise Tourism; and major retail brands, such as Eddie Bauer, Samsung Canada and Toyota.
Over the past five years, I’ve developed a passion for teaching photography. I’ve been fortunate to lead workshops through the Alberta Rockies and across the globe. Alongside these one-on-one workshops in Banff and Yoho National Parks, I host a series of annual workshops, including: Jasper Dark Sky Photo Workshop, f/8 Scotland, and f/8 Faroe Islands. Beyond these scheduled tours, I’ve hosted seven and 14-day trips in Iceland, Morocco, Peru, and Cuba.
I have hands-on experience with Sony, Nikon and Canon equipment; however, I primarily shoot with Sony mirrorless cameras and a mix of both Sony and Sigma Lenses. I also own an Olympus micro4/3rds camera system, which I use on extended backcountry trips.
