Moose Photography Workshop

Want to get close to a few moose - so close they stick their tongue out at you? Well we offer an opportunity to join professional photographer Rob Stimpson for a few days of shooting up in the northwest corner of Algonquin Park in Ontario on a fun-filled canoe trip. Bring your long lenses and lots of card space or film - which ever you prefer.

Arrive at the Algonquin Log Cabin for lunch (12:30pm). Enjoy a hike around the cabin before a late afternoon introduction of wildlife photogrpahy.
Wine and cheese and dinner at the Algonquin Log Cabin followed by sunset photo shoot of the point.
Accommodation double occupancy at the Algonquin Log Cabin

Breakfast and short transfer to "put in" of canoe route. Travel through lakes to base camp with lunch on the way. Enjoy basecamp on a scenic point covered in Red Pine and enjoy dinner and sunset/ dusk photo shoot with Rob.

Early morning canoe to wildlife viewing location, with great opportunities to see and photograph beavers, Great Blue herons and loons as well. Return for coffee and breakfast. After packing, out we go for a photo shoot and hike through mixed maple forest. Paddle back to the take out, stopping along the way for a large smorgasbord lunch.

The above itinerary is intended to give you an idea of a 3 day Algonquin photographic workshop. The exact program is tailored "on trip" to the preferences of the group and weather. Please note Algonquin park in June is bug season. Be prepared for black flies and mosquitoes!

Rob Stimpson is back showing all of us amateur photographers how to take great pictures of wildlife. This will be our third year offering the workshop and if the last two years are any indication, we can guarantee you will see moose - lot’s of them! One of our trips counted 28 moose in over 24 hours.

"Thanks so much! This was a great trip. I wasn't sure at first - not having canoed before - but it was fantastic! The guides were great and very knowledgeable. And Rob (Stimpson) was great too with lots of advice! So, thank you Rob! And thank you Voyageur Quest for a wonderful weekend!
