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. Helen has taught nature and landscape photography at Georgian College and prides herself on using simple, easy to understand language. She currently runs a large year-round gallery on her property just outside of Bracebridge.

Workshop Dates:
Starts at 1:30 p.m. on Friday, May 5 and ends around 1 p.m. on Sunday, May 7, 2023

Early May is the perfect time to brush off the winter cobwebs and get outside before the black flies and mosquitoes emerge. It’s also a great time to see moose before the cows set off to their calving spots.

Accommodations aren't included in the workshop cost, but we'd love to host you in one of our Riverside Rooms. Did you know we include a free day use vehicle pass for the park in the cost of your room? It's the perfect spot to stay for this adventure with Helen, as you'll be enjoying our home-cooked meals at lunch & dinner (her faves are the chicken & guacamole wrap, and our chicken marsala - yes, she eats here that often!). We look forward to the opportunity to get to know your faves, too!

For question about this workshop, please contact Helen

Visit Helen's Website for the workshop details & information about how to register for this exciting opportunity!

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 her control and, therefore, no guarantees are made. 

 Space is limited to 6 participants, so reserve your spot today for this amazing photography workshop!​
