I had a fantastic experience with Nick during his winter Canadian Rockies tour. He is very knowledgeable about different locations to photograph. He also watched the weather closely and adjusted our shooting locations to make sure we had the best possible conditions to photograph in. Nick also provides a ton of one on one tutoring to help with camera settings as well as providing great input for a perfect composition. I highly recommend attending a tour that Nick is hosting!

Amazing tour and time spent with Nick, Nick is a professional and talented photographer and mountaineer, I am myself an astrophotographer and I loved all the information he shared, also he made our camping trip easier by providing extra equipment and support. Totally worth it!

I can't say enough about Nick. This is the second time I've been with Nick. The first was in February 2021 and the second just recently on September 25, 2023. Nick knows the area so well and will take you to places off the beaten path. He knows where to take you and what time to get the most vivid shots. This was my first time going there in the fall. Nick took me the Kananaskis Valley which was beaming with bright yellow and reds from the Aspens and Ferns. You won't be disappointed going with Nick!

Well, reading the existing reviews over the past years it is quite difficult to add something new. It seems to be so consistent that Nick just gets good results and has the ability to make one's day.

In my case the difficulty was to get the perfect balance between photography and visiting nice spots arround Banff - with the spectacular fall scenery of the colored leaves - since my wife does not share the same enthusiasm for photography as I do. Short result: He did an amazing job!

We had hired a full day with him to have sunrise and sunset experience covered. The whole day was so well organized - we were just at the correct spot at anytime during the day. We saw so many incredible places, walked a lot and had just a good time. He knows everything about the areas and I liked it very much that he managed that we mostly had around only few people and not the crowds of the tourist spots.

His preparation and communication long before the event are outstanding and are just in line with the perfect day planning.

It is already said in other reviews many times, Nick's way of teaching and giving tips is very nice. He does sense your needs and involves himself just to the level you want to. He dedicates himself 100% to your needs (not like others that start shooting their own pictures in parallel).

I would have liked to take the lake O'Hara tour with him, unfortunately our schedule did not allow this ... when we are back in the Canadian Rockies I will defenitely look out for Nick!

If you are looking for a nice experience in the Canmore/Banff area - get in contact with Nick!

We spent a week in and around Banff National Park. I knew this was a photographic area but being unfamiliar with the area I booked Nick for a morning session. He picked me up at my rental and drove me to many of his favorite spots to photograph.

Nick asked what I wanted to photograph. I laughed and said, "you choose - iconic or off the beaten path." He definitely took me to places I would neve have found and I am very pleased with the photos I got. He was helpful and gave me some tips for photographing later during my visit.

I really liked the fact that his goal was for me to get good photos. He didn't photograph himself but concentrated on me getting what I liked. In past experience that doesn't always happen - many times the expert photography leading you wants to get those photos as well and concentrates on that much of the time rather than on the client.

I did make mention to him about having recently photographed the Milky Way in the East. He told me there was a very easy place with good foreground to shoot that right then. I dragged my husband out (5 minutes from where were were staying) and shot the Milky Way where he showed me and at the time he told me to. Perfect! I did attach a few photos and my Milky Way from Nick's recommended location.

I highly recommend Nick. If I ever go back I would hire him again!

In Sept I went on the hiking/photography to Tonquin Valley for four nights with Nick. As a amateur/hobbyist photographer I have always been a bit intimidated to join something like this. But right off the bat Nick made me feel conformable and part of the group. Before we even left for the trip he sent out information about what camera equipment to food he suggested to bring.

Every question I had Nick answered with kindness and professionalism, even the simplest explanation of a polarizer and how to use it properly. Nicks help with really looking at a scene before you set up a tripod or even think about clicking the button has made me see things differently and I now take better images not just vacation pictures.

Nick made sure to spend time with every one on the trip and make them feel valued and offer suggestions or help.

Not only Nicks knowledge of photography was invaluable but his knowledge of the area was much appreciated. As a certified guide I felt very safe with Nick and he never took chances if something did not seem safe.

Thank you Nick for an incredible journey. The morning we got up early to go get sunrise photos and walked out to see the Northern lights over the cabin will forever stay with me, I know you can't make them appear, but good things happen to good people.

I will take more workshops with Nick and highly recommend them.

This experience was pretty epic. We were able to spend time in several places exploring the night sky in an incredible mountain setting. During this photo tour, Nick was able to give me tips not only about how to capture the night sky but also how to navigate my camera in the dark. He was incredibly knowledgeable and even made sure I didn't walk into the lake. I would highly recommend a night photography experience with Nick, especially from Dusk to Dawn.

My first workshop with Nick was fantastic! Nick is a super nice guy and a great workshop leader. He goes above and beyond to make sure everyone feels included and he offers to help everybody. His experience in the mountains is welcomed by the participants as we know he is prepared and can handle pretty much any issue that may crop up. I highly recommend Nick Fitzhardinge Photography workshops to anyone looking for a great experience!

I went on two five-hour photo tours with Nick in the Lake Louise Region and in Banff. He was exceptional in how he carefully taught me a lot about photo composition, lighting, and the use of a new-to-me DLSR. He knew every setting available on my Canon 80D and explained not only how, but when to use them.

In particular, I learned how to adjust from "old-school" film camera photography to the realm of what creative digital photography can do. Nick intuitively adjusted his work with me to ensure my learning was a continuous process without being overwhelming.

I also learned some new techniques with which I was unfamiliar, such as panorama photos, ICM (intentional camera movement) and more.

My skill and capabilities have definitely risen to the next level thanks to Nick. I highly recommend going on photo tours with him.
