and Peter Eastway
are on loan to us from Australia in order to explore the breathtaking wildlife and landscape of the Canadian Rockies.
Like all PODAS workshops our trip to Banff is all-inclusive. There’s no need to worry about opening your wallet once you arrive, as the workshop fee covers meals, lodging and transportation. Each attendee will be provided their own Phase One XF camera system to use during the workshop and will be provided access to our complete line of lenses, accessories and first hand technical knowledge.
This PODAS is designed to as inspiring as it is adventurous, while still remaining relaxing and informal. Though we’ll be spending a majority of our time in the field to make use of the morning and evening light, there will be inspirational presentations from our instructors, educational Camera and Capture One tutorials from Phase One staff as well as a bit of downtime in the middle of the day to allow you to enjoy the tranquility that the Rocky Mountains has to offer. We will cover many advanced techniques of the XF Camera System as they pertain to Landscape and Portrait photography.
This workshop emphasizes the proper use of the XF Camera System and the techniques to ensure consistent success... with a bit of room to enjoy a drink under the great Canadian sky. There will be an equal amount of shooting in the field along with technical instruction, as there is in classroom lessons and inspirational presentations. Our PODAS group will be limited to 15 participants to ensure our 3 instructors and 2 staff can provide ample attention to all.
As is standard in PODAS, you’ll receive a complimentary camera bag, Capture One Pro Software License key when you arrive at the workshop and two large format professional prints, delivered to your door shortly after the workshop.
The cost of this trip is U.S. $6250
PODAS will cover all expenses once you arrive in Calgary, Canada. The only expense that is not covered by PODAS is alcohol and additional room charges during your stay.
Phase One will provide all lodging, meals and transportation with the group until you return to the airport at the end of the workshop.
We do ask that you bring a tripod that can support a Phase One XF Camera System, a laptop that meets the system requirements for Capture One Pro and CF cards. As this workshop will bring us to some cooler high peaks for sunrise and sunset, as well as rather cool mountain locations that may require walking short distances, it is recommended you bring light but warm outer wear as well as appropriate sturdy footwear for the rugged mountain environment. The key here will be layers, so plan on cooler mornings and evenings with temperate midday temperatures. Aside from these, you only need to bring your passion for photography.
If you have any questions please just drop us an email.
The workshop will begin and end from the Calgary Airport (YYC). Arrivals should be scheduled for no later than 3pm on September 17th and return flights the afternoon of September 25th. Flights may be limited, so if you plan on arriving early, or staying late, we can certainly help accommodate your schedule. We’ll be traveling via private transport with a dedicated driver to most locations, and will be sure to provide ample room in the vehicle for comfort. Dietary restrictions can certainly be satisfied and any travel assistance you may need is just an email away.
The workshop is extensive and the offerings are numerous. If you have any questions about this PODAS, please don’t hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
