Canada is the country where you can photograph a lot as a photographer. Vancouver Island, for example, is the perfect place to capture bears, killer whales and other whale species. If you go during the fall, you can admire the Indian Summer: this short period at the beginning of autumn ensures beautiful colors in the maples that Canada is so famous for. From the 137 meter long Capilano Suspension bridge in Vancouver where you can admire the natural wealth 70 meters above the ground, to the Canadian Rockies, there is plenty to see and experience.
Plan your travel to Canada for your photography project. Apply for a temporary visa and check processing times to make it on your planned date.
Maybe you want to go to the salmon migration where you can spot fishing bears or you are curious about the Sunshine Coast with beautiful bays and picturesque places.
Places To Capture Picturesque Images in Western Canada
Red Deer River Basin
The Red Deer River flows east of Calgary through an extremely dry area of prairies and beautiful so-called ‘badlands’. Those ‘Badlands’ are especially photographic but also geologically interesting. Photographers get their money’s worth in this semi-desert because of the different shapes and colors that show the barren weathered hills especially around sunrise and sunset. Geologically, it is a highlight because of the huge amount of dinosaur bones that were and are still found here.
Elk Island National Park
Elk Island is a fairly small national park 50 miles east of Edmonton. Because it is quite close to the big city of Edmonton, it is not really very quiet, but compared to Banff and Jasper it is still quite quiet. In any case, we could camp in the park in August without a reservation. The flat landscape is beautiful but not very spectacular and consists of forests, lakes and swamps. So we visited the park not so much to photograph landscapes, but mainly to photograph large grazers such as bison and deer.
In the north of British Columbia are the Northern Rocky Mountains, a little-visited wilderness of mountains, forests and rivers. The boundaries of this immense area (larger than the Netherlands) are roughly formed by the only two roads that run here: the Alaska Canada Highway to the east and north and the Dease Lake highway to the west. To explore the area you will have to hike, with the three provincial Parks along the Alaska Canada Highway (Northern Rocky Mountains, Stone Mountain and Muncho Lake Provincial Parks) being good starting points.
Photography and digital arts focusing in nature can never go wrong in Canada. There’s a lot to see and spending one day in these great picturesque places is not enough.
