This 8 day backcountry hiking photo tour in Gros Morne National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is designed to take you to some of the parks most beautiful locations, including Western Brook Pond and Gros Morne Mountain. During the tour, you will stay in beautiful local accommodations as well as have the opportunity to fall asleep under the stars while camping and hiking throughout the park’s rugged, glaciated backcountry.
The small group size of each tour will allow for a more intimate experience than larger group tours. This trip is suitable for various levels of photography experience, from beginners to well-experienced photographers looking for that new technique or trick to help elevate their body of work. Throughout the trip there will be opportunities to focus on specific areas of photography you are most interested in developing further (night sky, long exposures, portfolio development & more). This tour will be a great opportunity to devote time to learning added photographic techniques from the initial idea to the final print, and all required steps in between.
