Niagara Falls is the collective name for three waterfalls that straddle the international border between Canada and the United States; more specifically, between the province of Ontario and the state of New York. They form the southern end of the Niagara Gorge. Our Photography Tour itinerary has been designed by experienced photographers, for photographers, with a spotlight on not only putting you in the right place at the perfect moment to capture amazing photographs, but also to offer a unique learning and life experience. This tour will feature the spectacle that is Niagara, as well as demonstrating photographing nightscapes, long exposure photography with filters, video and time lapse photography techniques. Niagara Falls have long been a source of inspiration for explorers, travelers, artists, authors, filmmakers, residents and visitors. Niagara Falls is both a daytime and evening attraction and we will be experiencing it all. This 3-DAY guided tour with in-field workshops will emerge you in a photographer’s paradise. You’ll be surrounded by the beauty of the area and the sheer awesome power of Niagara Falls from every angle. This tour will be lead by Michael Busch and Joanne Henig.

We'll return to the Canadian side and stroll the shoreline of the Canadian Falls to get a close look at the Horshoe Falls and the different angles across the American Falls. For those that are interested, we'll put our fancy gear away for a bit and take an elevator 150 feet down to experience the Journey Behind the Falls attraction. If you have a waterproof camera, this would be a great location to use it. Night time shooting of the specular lights over the Falls will cap off a very busy photography day.

Considered one of the prettiest towns in Canada, Niagara On The Lake also offers interesting forts, mansions, and colorful gardens as photographic subjects. Niagara On The Lake will provide some really unique photo opportunities. Once we've had our fill in Niagara On The Lake, we'll head back towards our hotel. We can spend our last night practicing some more low-light photography techniques with the beautiful lights of Niagara Falls as our backdrop. We will also take some time to stroll the Niagara strip for a little while and grab a bite to eat.
