What is Enchantment in the Rockies?
In 2019, Enchantment in the Rockies was held in November as a four-day landscape photography retreat based out of Banff, Alberta, Canada and was co-taught by myself, Gina Yeo, and Kristen Ryan of Kristen Ryan Photography. We settled into the Moose Hotel and Suites, a beautiful and atmospheric base in the heart of Banff, on a sunny but wintery day. Over the next few days, we captured the sunset at Two Jack Lake and photographed beneath star-studded skies at Vermilion Lakes in Banff. We took in a breathtaking sunrise at Lake Louise, photographed under beautiful crisp winter sunlight at Bow Lake and enjoyed a surreal sunset and another starry and moonlit night at Emerald Lake. The next morning, we ventured back to Vermilion Lakes, where we photographed a stormy yet colourful sunrise then embraced more mood at Minnewanka. On our last morning together, Castle Mountain made us wait, but our patience paid off when the light broke through, creating a burst of colourful beauty amidst a dynamic mood. Johnston Canyon did not disappoint and showed off its beautiful icy canyon and frozen waterfalls. Best of all, we enjoyed learning together while we laughed. The memories made and the images created will be treasured forever.

I grew up in the Canadian Rocky Mountains and to this date I spend as much time as possible in these ranges. The Rockies are apart of who I am today. As a landscape photographer I'm fortunate to have one of the most awe inspiring and impressive mountain ranges in the world as my photography playground. As a landscape photography educator I’m thrilled to be able share my love for and knowledge about landscape photography with retreat participants in these stunning mountain ranges.

"I turned 30 this year and wanted to do something special to celebrate that. When I heard that Gina and Kristen would be teaming up to offer a retreat in Banff, I knew it was just the thing. I was so excited when I got in! It was an amazing experience with 13 other women who all were excited by landscape photography. Since Gina practically grew up in the Rockies, she was very knowledgeable about the best places to be shooting in the given lighting conditions. Gina and Kristen offered just the right amount of support - providing technical guidance as needed and encouraging us to try various techniques and compositions. I loved every minute of it and would really recommend Enchantment in the Rockies!" Kaitlyn Heaton.
