After two successful Photography Workshops in the Bugaboos in 2010 and 2011, John is excited to return to the Bugaboos for a wildflower photo workshop August 5-8, 2012. In early August the sun shines brightly on clear mountain lakes and gives life to meadows ablaze with wildflowers. Vibrant reds, purples and yellows carpet the meadows providing beautiful contrast to the jagged spires and ancient glaciers of the Bugaboo Range.

In August 2012 CMH Summer Adventures will welcome back renowned wilderness photographer John E. Marriott for a digital photography workshop. John's easy-going manner and passion for photography will inspire photographers of all levels. The helicopter allows us to explore a variety of landscapes and CMH's professional mountain guides will take us to special places in and around the Bugaboos with spectacular photo opportunities. Back at the lodge John will lead evening discussions about techniques and technology and lead a group critique. CMH's unpretentious hospitality and mountain luxury lodges top off an unforgettable photography workshop.
