"The future of life on Earth depends on our ability to see the sacred, where others see only the common."John Denver
We have spent many hours getting to know where the local wildlife are in our area and when is the best time of day to see them. Sometimes you will see wildlife in the parks, but often the high traffic, especially during the busy seasons, scares them off into the bushes or higher ground. Our area is much less travelled and we personally often see more animals closer to home than we do in the parks. And if it’s birds you’re looking to see, our yard is frequently visited by quite a variety of birds all year long. While during the Spring and Summer months, our forests are blanketed with over 40 different wildflowers throughout the season! And often we are even graced with the presence of deer and/or owls right in our backyard at our relaxing Back to Nature Retreat!
Whether you’re a photographer looking to capture a beautiful image of wildlife or landscape, or perhaps you’re just interested in going for a drive to see the beauty of nature, or maybe you would like to see some of the iconic places in the Rockies, we will put together a custom package to suit your needs. We also have several themed packages for you to consider.
Photo Tours are 2-8 hours of time, designated to teaching you tips and tricks, while offering you the opportunity to photograph various subjects. Subjects to be photographed vary by time of day, location of workshop, and season of year. Transportation will be provided for Photo Tour Packages of up to 3 people. Groups of more than 3 participants are welcome, with transport via carpooling.

$75/hour for the 1st 4 hours, to a maximum of $300 (up to 8 hours)
$25/hour for each additional person for the 1st 4 hours, to a maximum of $100 (up to 8 hours)

We are also in the process of adding additional package themes, such as a tour of the Oilfields, Yesteryears of Black Diamond, and the unique Alberta Prairie Railway Excursions from Stettler Alberta, to Big Valley. If there is another area that is of interest to you, just let us know and we would be happy to look into arranging the opportunity for you.
