One of my pfotos from the previous workshop by Igor:

Fall in Ontario, is by far, the most beautiful time of the year! And what else could be more quintessentially Canadian than forests full of red maple leafs? Every Canadian photographer's portfolio should include such shots, since we are extremely lucky to live in this unique geographic location where such amazing bright colours are possible.

This will be an unforgettable, educational and adventurous experience, a real treat for any landscape photographer - hosted by one of the most prominent and knowledgeable Canadian landscape and travel photographers Igor Laptev, and group's co-organizer and by group's organizer Andrew Maidanik.

The group will travel to Muskoka, Ontario in two passenger vans, leaving Toronto at 3:30 A.M. to catch the sunrise, and then will travel to several most scenic Muskoka locations, finishing with sunset shots and coming back to Toronto around 9 P.M. We will shoot from amazing lookout points, catch fall colours reflected in the rapids and learn techniques of photographing the waterfalls.

The masterclass will be held in a very similar manner as all our workshops and masterclasses - with very detailed explanations and instructions of how to create great shots that will be centerpieces of your portfolio. We will share not only the secret locations, unknown even to most locals, but also many techniques that will help you take the shots that you will absolutely be proud of!

This will be approximately 16 hour workshop. We will choose the locations very wisely, considering the amount of equipment we have to carry, so we won't have to do much walking and will drive up to shooting locations as close as possible.

For this masterclass you will need:

DSLR with a wide angle lens (14-24 or 12-24 and/or 17-35, 24-70m)

70-200 or 70-300 is strongly recommended

Polarizing filter

Coking filter holder with ND graduated filter

Remote control

Lots of storage space


Comfortable hiking shoes

Warm clothing

Packed lunch

Thermos with tea/coffee

We will have a few extra sets of filter and filter holders for students to use during the masterclass.

Do not miss this incredible opportunity, as this masterclass can only be repeated next year. There is a very short window of opportunity for fall colours, literally only one week when colours are the best before leafs fall down. The group is strictly limited to 12 students - 6 passengers in each van.

Please read our reviews and see students' pictures from 2011 and 2012 Fall Landscape Masterclasses:
