We will have several dog photo sessions with these mountains as our backdrop. Other activities will include photographing dogs at a dog sledding facility and interacting with over 100 dogs at one time. We will also spend a day with an amazing local landscape photographer, learn from her and get to experience Banff from a local photographer's perspective.
