Do You Ever...

Struggle With Landscape Photography Technique?

Landscape photography technique isn't easy. There's different techniques and camera settings for specific landscape environments and it can be both frustrating and disappointing when your images don't turn out. I've been there, I understand. 

Wonder How You Can Capture More Creative Images?

Those who've mastered creative photography make it look so easy! But it's not, is it? 

Feel More Frustrated After Spending Time Photographing Nature Instead of Feeling Rejuvenated?

I don't know the exact reasons you head out into nature but I bet it has something to do with finding what you need to de-stress, relax, and rejuvenate.  

Wish You Could Spend A Little More Time Practising Your Landscape Photography Skills?

They say practise makes perfect. Personally, I like to say practise makes progress. But the point here is practise in landscape photography is important. 

Want To Embrace Your Passion For Photography And Capture Stunning Mountain Ranges?

Mountains are my happy place! Are they your's too?

Experience Only The Best of The Best

There's no need to worry about getting lost or arriving late and missing a spectacular sunrise. I live in and frequently spend time in the Canadian Rockies. Due to this, I have intimate knowledge about the locations we'll visit, and I'm excited to be your expert guide! 

Relax and Rejuvenate

When was the last time you did something for yourself?! Indulge in your interest for photography and nature! You deserve this!

Hi, I'm Gina!

I'll be your host, mentor and teacher during all Captivated by the Rockies ladies' landscape photography retreats.

I'm super excited about your interest in the Captivated by the Rockies ladies' retreats. Recently, during a retreat, the group was "oohed" and "ahhed" by a spectacular sunrise. I stood completely captivated by the moment as I watched the light move across one of my favourite mountains scenes. One of the ladies attending the retreat turned and smiled at me while she jokingly stated, "you don't really enjoy this do you?" 

That's right! I'm about as passionate as a landscape photographer as one can be, and I look forward to not only sharing my enthusiasm for landscape photography with you but also my extensive practising knowledge.

As a native Calgarian, I've spent my life exploring the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The Canadian Rockies are not just a place I've visited once or twice on a holiday. I regularly visit and photograph within these mountain ranges and, as a result, have the knowledge and expertise about when and where to go to make the most of available light and opportunity during your visit to the Canadian Rocky Mountains.

I've also had the honour and pleasure of mentoring and teaching thousands of women photographers both online and in person. As a landscape photographer, I'm thrilled and honoured to share the beauty of the Canadian Rockies with you as I teach and support your learning and growth in landscape photography. 

Any season within the Canadian Rocky Mountains offers both unique and captivating possibilities. Captivated by the Rockies will offer you the opportunity to photograph the Canadian Rockies underneath the stunning colourful light of sunrise and sunset, mesmerizing star-studded skies and chase light during the hours in-between. Maybe...if we're very lucky the Aurora Borealis might come out and dance! There is no shortage of opportunity and beauty in the Canadian Rockies. Together we will take advantage of the infinite possibilities for jaw-dropping moments, and you will learn, laugh, and enhance your landscape photography techniques and skills. 

You will undoubtedly return home with improved landscape photography skills, enhanced creative ideas, images you'll be proud to share and print and priceless memories and friendships that you'll treasure for your lifetime.  

I'm thrilled to have the honour to spend time with you and mentor you in your landscape photography journey!

Warmly,

Gina.

Diana Horler

"I have had the privilege of learning from Gina on three separate occasions.  I first met Gina during one of her informal Ladies of the Rockies evenings at Lake Minnewanka. This experience encouraged me to sign up for The Art in Landscape Photography on-line course which was outstanding, and, finally, I participated in her four-day workshop, Captivated by the Rockies. Gina provided me with a wealth of information, excellent instruction and support in my journey to improve my photography. Her instruction is well organized, complete, and easy to understand.  
 
Gina has been a wonderfully supportive instructor who offers her knowledge with good humour, enthusiasm, and patience. Her passion for photography and her desire to share her knowledge shines through in her workshops and courses.   She has been an inspiration to me."

Gina C.

"Gina is an excellent instructor.  Gina is able to meet a student individually wherever she is at for technical skills and composition.  Gina knows the Rockies and even though Mother Nature is unpredictable Gina is constantly thinking about the best way to maximize time and to get the best shot possible. She has really helped me grow as a photographer."
