Private Tours and Workshops for Small Groups and Individuals
Private Photo Tours are a unique way to experience the diversity and beauty of Canada with an experienced photographer and guide that has extensive knowledge of the locations and photography style you want to experience.
Whether you have a few days or a few weeks, we can help you explore and experience this beautiful country with an Expert Photography Instructor and guide to help you take amazing photographs, while we help you improve your skills.
As a team of professional photographers and experienced photo tour guide, we offer you an opportunity to explore Canada from a unique perspective that is designed with photography in mind.
We provide inside tips on hidden locations and the best vantage points for getting creative and professional looking images for your portfolio. We also know the history of the locations you want to visit. So, not only will you get amazing photos, you will also learn about the culture and the subject matter you are photographing.
Who should come on a private photography tour?
Whatever your camera style and skill level – from the person that just bought a camera to the experienced enthusiast, or professional that just wants to be at the right spot at the right time – your tour is customized to your interests and skill level.
Private tours are ideal for individuals and small groups to a maximum of 4 people. A lot of our private tours are created for families, or groups of friends that want a custom tour, enjoy each others company and have someone take care of all the logistics.
When do the tours run?
Private photography tours are based on our availability, but can often be created at any location we offer, at any time of year.
Book your tour in advance to guarantee availability for your preferred departure date and time.
How much does a tour cost?
Private Photo tours are priced based on your needs. These are not cookie cutter trips that we pull off the shelf. We customize accommodation requests, food plans, transportation styles and length of trip based on our experience and your available time.
The process is a discussion on timing, desired photographs you want to take, locations and your budget. We then create an itinerary and send you all the information back to you that will satisfy, and exceed your needs and expectations.
Once you are ready to book, we start the planning process and register you for your trip.
Before your vacation runs we will stay in touch with you to make sure you are prepared with the right photography gear, clothing and information on the areas we will be visiting.
A detailed itinerary is then sent to you and our travel partners, Merit Travel, can help you with your flights, travelers insurance and other needs so all you have to worry about is showing up and enjoying your Canadian experience.
Some examples of the destinations and subject matter that we can create for you are listed below:
