Overnight photography at Killarney Mountain Lodge

to Oct 1

Overnight photography at Killarney Mountain Lodge

  • killarney mountain lodge (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

The overnight Island session has evolved for 2019.

For the first time, Daytripper Photo will be visiting the Killarney Mountain Lodge for our overnight session.

The Island in North Bay was excellent and we had 3 great years there… maybe even more down the road… But…. Killarney Mountain Lodge…. This place is something else!

Of course the real reason we have this session is so we can spend plenty of time working on some very specialized styles of photography. From sunrise and sunset to shooting the moon and other stars and night photography to wildlife and landscape photography in the pristine northern Ontario countryside!

With no cities nearby and separated from most civilization by a huge Canadian National Park (The Killarney national park) we will have no distractions from the outside world and will be able to immerse ourselves in the creative world of photography!

Our instructors will be the amazing Martin Ingles, Philip Zoratto, and owner of DTP, Bryan Weiss. With these three its not just a learning experience you’ll go home with but memories of laughter, fun, inspiration, and motivation that will stay with you long after you’re home and back to your daily grind.

On sessions like this, there are not only hands on workshops while at pre planned and scouted locations, there are also photo reviews and editing sessions that will open your eyes to a whole new world of photography.

And then, of course, there’s the main attraction… The Killarney Mountain Lodge.

This high end resort boasts the most beautiful views and accomodations in Ontario and with their stellar staff and other amenities, any off time you have from shooting will bathe you in luxury.

The room choices for our trip are as follows.

Pine Lodge Suites:

3 single accomodations at $699.90 each

6 shared accomodations at $599.90 each person and feature Queen or Single beds

There will also be a special bonfire on Saturday night with s’mores!

One light, Infinite possibilities

There has been much fuss made about portrait lighting. But what light/look resonates best for you? Speedlight? Studio Flash? Ring Flash? Beauty Dish? Constant Lighting? There are so many options it can be overwhelming, not to mention expensive to try them all out. Well not anymore!! In this session we will be going bare bones basic. One light portraits, but multiple different stations with different types of light.

Hands on training at each station. You get to shoot instead of just listening to us blather on.

Daytripper Photo presents our final Don Komarechka session of 2015

By popular demand, we were able to convince macro photography wizard, Don Komarechka to hold one more session with us in 2015. 

If you have a fascination for the beauty all around you and find yourself inspired by the tiniest little details than macro photography is for you.  Don Komarechka sees the world in a different way and likes to play by his own rules and this certainly helps when it comes to the world of macro photography.

If you see Don's photography you can stare at it for hours and when you look away, then look back, that raw amazement kicks right back in.  His attention to detail and striking colour choices make his images linger in your mind long after you walk away from his print.  His talent is undeniable.

But here's the really cool part... Not only is he an amazing photographer, he is a phenomenal educator and welcomes you into his world and offers you extreme detail and understanding on how to achieve these images for yourself!  

What is even better is that Bryan Weiss from Daytripper Photo is also there making the personal support you may need that much more available.  Another exclusive offer is that each person that registers for this joint session will receive a copy of Don's book Sky Crystals.  The definitive book on snowflake and macro photography.    

Please join Daytripper Photo and Don Komarechka at Don's home in Barrie Ontario on September 1st as we marvel you with the details of the world around you.
