Ever wonder how long exposure photos are taken – stretched clouds, silky sky, have people buried in your image, etc? Here is your opportunity.


A unique photography workshop to enhance your photography skills. Are you tired of photographing the same thing, or do you want to expand your photography skills? Here is your opportunity.

Learning photography should be an easy task and not complicated. You are the paintbrush, and the world is your canvas!

My name is Yves Gagnon, and I am your photography coach. With over 20 years of experience helping people as a Career Counselor, Life Coach, and Mentor, I know a thing or two about helping people.

I have created unique small group photography workshops in Calgary and surrounding areas to help you start your photography journey or take you to the next level. These workshops will explain the basics such as aperture, shutter speed, ISO, composition, planning or scouting your photography outing, and metering to the more advanced technics such as focus stacking, shooting panoramas, using ND filters, and so much more.

About the Workshop:

Photography is being creative with your photos and having a creative mind. If you think you have all of that, that is great, because I want you in this workshop.

Don’t wait to register because I only accept 5 students for this workshop because I want my students to learn as much as possible.

The workshop will be held in Dorothy, Alberta. I will communicate the meet-up location after the registration is paid. The travel time is about 1.5h.

I provide an agenda of the event about 1 week before the workshop.

Departure from Calgary is 8:30 am, and we arrive again in Calgary by 4 pm.

The workshop is to give you the best photography learning experience that you can have and to leave the workshop with more knowledge than what you can in with. You will be able to apply your learned skills to your photography journey.

FRESH Batteries


Lenses – wide and telephoto

MUST HAVE ND filters – 3 stop, 6 stop or a 10 stop- I have filters that I can share.

If you think this workshop is not for you, that is great, but you will miss out on how to improve your photography, and you will continue to be disappointed with your photography and be a subpar photographer.

What I can’t promise for the workshop – clouds and wind!

The group is limited to 5 as I want the learning to be amazing, and I can answer your questions.

I am fully vaccinated with my 3rd shot. To be part of the workshop, I want everyone to be comfortable; vaccination is required.

I have posted a few images from the location, and your creativity is endless. Creativity is great, but SAFETY is #1! A safety talk will occur before we start shooting.

I will provide a day’s schedule when you have registered and paid your deposit.

What happens if it rains? Photography does not only happen with it is sunny, no wind, etc. Best photos are taken when the weather is not at its best. If it is raining, the workshop will be rescheduled.

What to wear: Don’t wear shorts, sandals, you know what I mean. You MUST dress for the unexpected change in weather.

I am a registered business.
