Visual storytelling uses a series of photos to share a narrative about a place, a character, an issue or a cause. This August, tell your story under the guidance of Canadian Geographic Photographer in Residence Neil Ever Osborne.

With the majestic Bugaboo Spires as your backdrop and using multi-day helicopter rides to access vantage points under ideal light, this three-day August workshop with Canadian Mountain Holidays and Nikon Canada will allow you to create images that have a purpose.

Throughout this collaborative experience, you will learn how to make a compelling photographic essay while revealing the personal story behind your images. You’ll gain a deeper appreciation for the power of a series of images that can be used to engage audiences, and take your photographic pursuit to another level.

At the same time, enjoy the hospitality and comfort of the Bugaboos, CMH’s original backcountry luxury lodge, nestled at the foot of the stunning Bugaboo Glacier in British Columbia.

This workshop runs from August 11 to 14 and is open to photographers with moderate to advanced experience.

There are still spaces left in this one-of-a-kind photographic workshop. Contact Canadian Mountain Holidays to learn more details, and get a taste for the experience through Neil Ever Osborne's photographs, below.

This one-of-a-kind educational workshop provides breathtaking backdrops to photograph but its the conversation about the images that participants enjoy the most.

Neil Ever Osborne uses his photography and visual storytelling to start a conversation. If an image can be the impetus behind a dialogue that matters, then the image is doing work. In this unique photography workshop Neil discusses his perspective and philosophy of the changing landscape of photography. Participants are encouraged to play a role.

Lyle Grisedale (left) and Dave Butler (right) on Kain Ridge have long been visiting the Bugaboo Group in the Purcell Mountain Range. Their expertise, knowledge of the land and passion for being outdoors making imagery adds another dimension to the workshop. Like us, they are very fortunate to access the mountain peaks, as often as they do so they know where to go to make that image that matters most.

The famous wilderness advocate John Muir said, “Keep close to Nature’s heart…and break clear away once in awhile, and climb a mountain, or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.” We do this with helicopters.
