Nature Photography Workshops & Tours
Outdoor photography & nature photography workshops in Ontario, Canada.
Featuring locations such as Algonquin Park, Muskoka and the Bruce Peninsula.
Winter in Algonquin Park (February 28 - March 2, 2014)
Algonquin Provincial Park in winter is a wonderland of snowy landscapes and opportunities to photograph birds and small mammals at close range.
On this workshop, we'll focus on capturing winter birds and landscapes in one of the premiere nature photography locations in Ontario!
Wildflowers of the Bruce Peninsula (June 6-8, 2014)
The Bruce Peninsula is renowned for its unique plant diversity with 42 wild orchid species, dozens of ferns and a thousand other plant species including rare endemics.
This workshop is timed to coincide with the peak blooming periods for many species, including thousands of Yellow Lady Slipper orchids.
Waterfalls and Fall Colours of Muskoka (September 26-28, 2014)
The Muskoka region is quintessential Canada with myriad lakes and rivers, white pines growing from rocky outcrops and hardwood forests that turn ablaze with colour during autumn.
On this workshop, we'll visit cascading rivers and waterfalls surrounded by fall colours, to create beautifully artistic fall scenes with satin-flowing water.

Ethan's Photo Workshop/Tour Philosophy
1. You learn from doing, not from boring theory that you can read in books!
2. Great scenery and natural diversity create the most inspiring learning experiences!
3. An alarm clock is your most essential gear!
Ethan's photo tours and workshops focus on practical, field techniques for nature photography - not boring photographic theory that you can read in thousands of books.
Tour sizes are small (8 or less), which allows Ethan to spend one-on-one time with each participant to address individual challenges and learning objectives.
We make the effort to get to outstanding locations at the best times of day. The result: great photos, memorable experiences and lots of fun!
What Participants Have Said...
"Your exuberance, teaching skill, knowledge of wildflowers and their environs and your photographic talents made this workshop a fabulous experience for us.
We really appreciated the patience you showed and the time you took with all participants to ensure we all got the most from the workshop. Oh and the food,
accommodation, etc. were top notch. Overall a terrific weekend!" - A.G.
"It was an absolutely fantastic experience. Organization, accommodation, meals and overall atmosphere were perfect. Your knowledge of nature and photography
is simply outstanding. I learned a lot. Two thumbs up!" - J.S.
If anyone is curious as to what sort of instructor Ethan is, he gets 2 thumbs up from me. I attended his last workshop and he handled a very diverse group with
different levels of experience with wonderful skill. I don't think anyone felt like they didn't come away with something. His location-choosing skills are pretty
awesome as well. - C.S.
"Once again I write to say thanks for our workshop at Point Pelee. For anyone interested in bird photography I would highly recommend the workshop. Your unique
expertise in birding and their behavior combined with your photographic skills allowed us to actually predict where the subjects were going to be and get the shots,
while others watched. It was fantastic." - B.B
"Hi Ethan, Thank you for such an organized and fun trip. Your great skill in communicating and the positive waves you send to everyone, made this weekend a blast!
I've told to you, I had never taken this many shots in such a short time. Although I've been in some of those places before, this time, I was quite motivated to "see"
better. Congrats! It was awesome." - T.S.
"The tour was great and I think I took a bit of a quantum leap in my learning curve thanks to your efforts.....I thoroughly enjoyed our conversations along the trails
as well." - D.R.
