Mid-September is the ideal time to visit Algonquin Park. Historically, the sugar maples in the park have not yet reached peak colours, which means there's a beautiful mix of red and orange with green to contrast, but no "peak colour madness" on the roads and trails. In the past few years, this week has seen high bull moose activity, which improves our chances of photographing this majestic animal at its best. And, we chose mid-week to give us more freedom to roam without the worry of weekend congestion.

Tuesday, September 18 – lunch and dinner at The Mad Musher, accommodations at The Mad Musher or Camp Bongopix Cabins**
Wednesday, September 19 – breakfast, lunch & dinner at The Mad Musher & accommodations at The Mad Musher or Camp Bongopix Cabins**

About Helen E. Grose - Your Guide & Instructor!

Helen is a professional photographer who lives on a farm in Muskoka an hour away from the west gate of Algonquin. She has been going to Algonquin Park for years and has experienced some incredible moments with many of the park’s famous residents – moose, foxes, wolves, bears and beavers. She will take you to some of her favourite places and provide you with information that will help increase your chances of finding and photographing wildlife, safely and ethically.

Helen's images have been published around the globe and she's often been described as an animal whisperer. Currently, Helen teaches nature and landscape photography at Georgian College and prides herself on using simple, easy to understand language.

During this weekend, Helen will also touch on ethics in wildlife photography, as it’s an important part of any authentic encounter. While every effort is made to find wildlife to photograph, there are many factors outside our control and, therefore, no guarantees are made. 

 Space is limited to 8 participants, so reserve your spot today for this amazing photography workshop!our paragraph here.


Fall in Love with Algonquin Photography Workshop with professional photographer, Helen E. Grose.

September 18 - 20, 2018

Autumn is the season of love in Algonquin Park -- visitors from around the world fall for the vibrant colours and breath-taking vistas, and moose are on the hunt for a mate. It's the perfect time to visit Canada's oldest provincial park in all its glory!

This three-day, two-night workshop is open to people of all ages and skill levels who are interested in nature and wildlife photography. It’s a chance to spend some time in nature in a fun and relaxed environment, learning tips and techniques to improve your photography, while being lead to some of the most photogenic places -- and hopefully faces! -- in Algonquin Park.

We have reserved the entire lower level of riverside rooms, as well as the back room upstairs to give workshop participants the space and privacy needed to feel comfortable asking questions, sharing information and being immersed in learning. The workshop will consist of some classroom learning, image sharing and, of course, lots of time exploring Algonquin Park with your cameras.
