Event description

Description

Join Lowepro Storyteller and Nikon Ambassador Kristian Bogner for an action packed and informative photo walk on July 15th, 2017 in Canmore Alberta.

We will meet between 9am and 9:30am at the Grassi Lakes Trailhead Parking Lot Area and start a short hike up to vantage points of a waterfall and then up to the waterfall itself where we can get close enough to touch it. Here we will discuss long exposures vs freezing the action, high-speed flash sync, painting with light and more. Then we will continue up to the stunning emerald green Grassi Lakes and rocky mountain backdrops and Kristian will share landscape shooting and macro photography tips. For those that are keen we can head up a little higher and shoot some of the hieroglyphics and mountain climbers if there are any climbing on the routes there and we can discuss some sports photography shooting techniques. After we hike down and return to the parking area, anyone looking for more action can follow Kristian over to the Canmore Nordic Centre which is only 2km away (I suggest we drive over) where the 24Hrs of Adrenaline Mountain Bike Race will be taking place and Kristian will share more pro sports shooting techniques.
