Sunshine Meadows Beginners Photography Workshop (Jul 27)

Want to take your photos to the next level? Join us at Banff Sunshine Village for our photography workshops and learn how to get the most out of your day in nature. Regardless of weather and conditions, there is always unique beauty to be captured up at Sunshine Meadows in the beautiful Canadian Rockies.


This will be a half-day workshop for an intro into Adventure and Landscape Photography in one of Canada’s most Iconic landscapes you can find. We will be going over the basics of photography and how to get to know your equipment to capture all those amazing moments during your adventures. Learn tips from Patrick Hoffman, our Sunshine Village Content Creator as he will guide you through Sunshine Meadows and show you some amazing spots for landscape photography.


The morning will be packed with shooting and hiking in Sunshine Meadows. Participants must make their own transportation arrangements to and from Sunshine Village. The morning will start at the Guest Services desk at the Bourgeau Base Area. From there, we will all take the Gondola up to the Village, then take the Standish Chair up to the Standish Viewing Deck and work our way through the Sunshine Meadows. Lunch break will be at noon at Trappers and get to know each other better before heading out for the afternoon for some unhosted hiking a shooting at your leisure.
