Join us on a photographic adventure featuring two magnificent UNESCO World Heritage sites and many delightful gems along the path that connects them. This is a tour for photographers ready to move beyond the basics and submerge themselves in an inspiring, rugged landscape as they hone their skills. We mix group instruction, experiential learning and professional one-on-one coaching for a custom-tailored experience in the midst of cultural and ecological wonders.
Gros Morne National Park is a spectacular natural phenomenon filled with sparkling bays, ancient fjords, and the awe-inspiring Tablelands. Rich in wildlife and magnificent vistas, it is also the place where geology commands centre stage. We settle ourselves at a central location in Gros Morne and explore its heart with plenty of time to capture the landscape with our cameras.
From Gros Morne we travel north, traversing primal, barren landscapes dotted with tiny, isolated communities where local Newfoundlanders still follow the traditional way of life. There are many hidden treasures along our way, from graveyards with stories to tell, to lighthouses and dune-strewn sandy beaches, even a glimpse of Labrador across the strait. Our destination is the very tip of Newfoundland’s Northern Peninsula, a finger that reaches high into the North Atlantic. Here we walk in the footsteps of the Vikings who wintered in this place over a thousand years ago in defiance of the barren land. The tip of the Peninsula pushes into Iceberg Alley, the berg-laden current that sweeps down from the coast of Labrador. Although it is never a certainty, this is one of the best places to see these giant ice castles.
So pack your camera and join celebrated nature photographer, Dennis Minty, and his partner Antje Springmann, in this ancient, rugged place. Your guides are Newfoundlanders who will open doors to places and experiences undiscovered by the casual tourist. Don’t miss this extra-ordinary photographic journey that will leave you inspired and refreshed, and your photography portfolio brimming.
