Adventure Canada has launched new photography programs, collaborations and workshops designed to help amateur and professional photographers capture priceless moments during cruise adventures this year.
Travellers can enjoy complimentary access to state-of-the-art cameras and lenses from the experts at Fujifilm throughout the expedition season. Onboard workshops and coaching from esteemed photographers like Freeman Patterson, Andre Gallant and Dan Bailey are available on select voyages, including the inaugural Mighty Saint Lawrence adventure, from June 14-23, and iconic Out of the Northwest Passage expedition, from Aug. 20 to Sept. 5.
For budding shutterbugs, the Mighty Saint Lawrence expedition will feature well-known Fujifilm X-photographer Dan Bailey and Billy Luong of @FujiGuys, who will host workshops and offer instruction on the new Fujifilm cameras.
The expedition highlights the rich coastal regions of Quebec’s North Shore and offers plenty of whale watching opportunities. Between the high cliffs of Saguenay Fjord, travellers will eagerly prime their cameras waiting for a chance encounter of the dramatic and elusive blue whale. Guests can also photograph the famous red cliffs of the Magdalen Islands, in addition to spotting migrating seabirds in several national parks along the route.
For the ideal photo backdrop, travellers can focus their lenses on Adventure Canada’s Out of the Northwest Passage expedition, which begins in Greenland, coasting through bright villages and past larger-than-life glaciers. The scenic journey continues to the bird cliffs at Coburg Island National Wildlife Area, a prime spot for photographers, while polar bear, walrus and musk ox sightings steal the spotlight on Melville, Banks and Devon islands.
Photographers Patterson and Gallant join guests aboard Out of the Northwest Passage, helping them frame the perfect shot.
Fujifilm’s premium line of X-Series cameras and lenses, along with the FinePix S1 and XP80, will be available for passenger use aboard the Ocean Endeavour throughout the expedition season.
