ABOUT

​Meet Your New Photography Coach!

I am Yves Gagnon, a published landscape photographer based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. My award-winning images show a diversity of intimate scenes of nature and up to wide and dramatic vistas of the Canadian Rockies and Cityscapes. My photographic journey has always been to advance by learning new skills rather than buying a more powerful camera.

Whats included with each workshop?

Professional photography mentors with many years of experience

Real-time communication with a teacher

Theoretical materials that you can keep to refresh your knowledge

An interactive learning experience and instant feedback from your photography teacher

A large variety of courses for all skill levels and interests!

CAPTURING MOMENTS

The Workshops

  • The importance of composition in landscape photography and how to incorporate multiple elements and layers to really make your image tell a story without words.
  • Teaching when and when not to use Neutral Density filters (if you have them)
  • Taking control of light in your images through proper metering and exposing to the strengths of the light at the time.
  • Introduction to night photography (either in the bright lights of the city, or dark sky locations outside of the city lights)
  • Advanced techniques such as focus stacking & understanding depth of field and hyperfocal distances
  • Discussion of which smartphone apps can help you plan ahead and improve your photography before you even arrive on location.
  • Portfolio review on site, analysis, and suggestions for improvement.
  • Using photography as an outlet to combat stress, and boost mental health.

What people are saying

My Clients Know Best…

 "I attended the Photography and Pints workshop that Yves hosted and it was fantastic! Yves is extremely knowledgeable and so willing to share his knowledge. I learned so much from this workshop and hope to take some others in the future! If you are looking for some great beginner information to help your photography skills reach out to Yves and attend one of his workshops, you won't be disappointed!" 

Simone Cameron

 "I attended the Long Exposure workshop in Dorothy. This was not just about long exposure but included much emphasis on composition as well as anything else the participant might want to pursue. Yves was well organized and prepared. The day was a great learning experience from beginning to end. I look forward to attending other workshops." 

James Gabbert

 "I would recommend Yves to everyone! I've done some Beginner's Photography courses, but the instructions were complex and hard to follow. Yves’ instructions are simple and guide you through the shooting process. I really enjoyed the small group workshops at the Upper Kananaskis Lake. I was really appreciative of Yves’ constructive feedback on my photography and helped me refine my skills. Thanks, Yves!"
