"This is my favourite time to be photographing the mountains with glacial lakes, fresh snow on the peaks and splashes of fall colour combining to provide some of the most photogenic landscape photography imaginable.
This is a great opportunity to have an in-depth photography adventure, to walk away a better photographer, to make new friends, and most importantly to have fun. We look forward to welcoming you to this spectacular part of Canada!"

"Nick was a fabulous guide of the Lake O’Hara area! Extremely knowledgeable regarding the surrounding mountains, trail system, back country etiquette and keeping the group safe. I am a green horn photographer and Nick adapted the course for all levels of photography and made it easy and simple to get great shots. He even ordered terrific weather for our 3 day course. I highly recommend experiencing a mountain photography workshop with Nick Fitzhardinge. Thanks again for a great time!"

"We spent several days with Nick in the Banff area in August. It was a fabulous experience. Nick was so patient and knowledgeable, not only about photography but the geography and history of the area as well. We were grateful for his preparedness and his willingness to slow his hiking pace to match two 50-something women. He was always pointing out interesting compositions and was full of helpful tips which was particularly gratifying as I am fairly new to photography.Overall, it was an amazing trip and I would not hesitate to book another one with Nick. I highly recommend his photo tours!"

"I had the pleasure of spending a long weekend with Nick in the beautiful Lake O Hara region of BC last September. Nick had organized the logistics, booking the EP Hut (a challenge in itself) and kept in constant contact until the trip. There are a couple of things about Nick that stood out and which mean I would absolutely recommend his services: he communicates well – is clear and concise leaving no worries about details. He’s organized – researching the gear that each participant used so that he could provide the best assistance during the workshop. Being a local, he’s extremely knowledgeable about the locations we visited, about the wildlife, the flora and fauna, the mountains, the weather forecast and of course, the technical aspects of photography. He’s accessible – helping out with any questions, even after the workshop. And of course, he’s an amazingly talented landscape photographer – you’re learning from one the best. I highly, highly recommend his services, supporting a local hardworking photog – you will not be disappointed."

"Nick is the man.
I've had the priviledge to shoot with Nick and learn from him on a few occasions and I was stoked recently to join one of his workshops at Lake O'Hara. He knows the area well, and was extra prepared in case any of us weren't, packing extra jackets, water tablets and even hot chocolate. Nick is a good guide but even more so, a good dude."
