August 3-9 Yukon - Tombstone Territorial Park (3 spots left)

Event cost: $2995 + GST


This Photography adventure starts and ends in Whitehorse in the Yukon.

We will then drive North to the historical gold mining town of Dawson City which will be our base from which to visit 'The Patagonia of the North', Tombstone Territorial Park. We will then access the backcountry via helicopter (and also be picked up by helicopter) allowing for 3 nights camping in the remote Yukon wilderness in front of some of the most stunning landscapes in Canada. The photography opportunities are immense with giant walled mountains surrounding us and beautiful lakes by both of our camping locations. Hiking is required between the two campsites (Talus & Divide) and during the days to reach our photography locations. A moderate level of fitness is required. Walking distances of between 6 - 10km per day with small elevation gains mixed in are the norm. You will need to be able to carry your camera gear & any necessities with you over these distances although most of our gear will be stored at our campsites while we explore. The group size is small, limited to 5 participants to keep our impact low and maximize your learning experience through my photography instruction & mentoring.

Guiding, photography instruction, transportation and accommodation is included (except camping gear - you will need to bring your own tent, sleeping bag and mat for the 3 nights camping as well as a backpack for your gear). You will be provided with a selection of lightweight but nutritious backcountry meals for breakfast & dinner during the 3 nights camping. The other 3 nights are twin share in hotels in Dawson City. Your guide is an experienced licensed guide for this area who will provide natural and photographic insights on this remote location nestled just below the arctic circle so that you will come away with amazing photos and experiences from this multi-day adventure.

This workshop is suitable for all levels of photography experience as there will be many one on one opportunities throughout our time together. I will be by your side providing all that I know and love about landscape photography.

This is a once in a lifetime trip! You will never forget photographing Mt Monolith and it's imposing spires from the many humbling perspectives beneath it.

Testimonials

" I recently attended a photography workshop of Nick Fitzhardinge’s. It was a wonderful experience and I must credit the truly extraordinary landscape of the area and Nick’s skills as a photographer and guide for its success.

Nick’s understanding of photography is exemplary and he was able to spot gaps in my knowledge of which I was not even aware. His recommendations were always presented respectfully and I came away from the workshop with a much better understanding of landscape photography than I had brought to it. Nick’s knowledge of the area and it’s photographic potential is exemplary as well.

He knows the most attractive viewpoints and the best possible times for visiting them. I am extremely pleased with the photographs that I took and I know that they would not have been possible without his guidance.

Nick’s love of photography and the mountains is apparent, as is his joy in being able to share that love with others. I would not hesitate to recommend one of Nick Fitzhardinge’s photographic workshops to anyone  "
