The Final Photo Tour Ever – November’s Fire and Ice in the Canadian Rockies

As many of you know, Samantha and I have decided to stop doing photo tours. Tours are about guiding photographers to the most scenic locations given the light and the weather, and also trying to bag the big trophy locations in sweet light. Although tours are fun and have a function, Samantha and I are much more interested in teaching  people to be better artists no matter where you find yourself.  Tours by design just don’t teach creative expression: they aim to get you pretty photos for your portfolio. While our workshops will still be held in the stunning Kootenay Plains of Alberta, we think you’ll come away with a more diverse set of images that demonstrate depth and creativity with our new workshop format. But… if you want one last kick at my final Canadian Rockies ‘big game hunting’ landscape photography tour, then there are two spots left in the 2013 Fire and Ice Photo Tour. If you are interested in our workshops that tease out your personal expression then check out our 2014 schedule. Below are 20 of my favorite ‘trophies’ from Fire and Ice over the years.

    You chose 20 absolutely stunning images for us to view…although I would bet it was a tough decision to cull through your archives! Great post and concept.

    Sorry to see you stop doing the tours, Darwin. I’ve been with you once in November and am going back again for your last tour in 2013. Love your work and may join you both on a future workshop.

    I couldn’t agree more with your philosophy on tours vs. workshops guys, and I applaud your move to focus on workshops. I think this will better serve your participants and will be much more rewarding and fulfilling for the two of you.
    Darwin, it’s been a while since I’ve browsed a collection of your images like this, thanks for sharing these. Your work always inspires me!
