I was fortunate enough to have two private tours with Mark recently in the Banff area and can't say enough about the experience. Mark is knowledgeable about the art and craft of photography, His understanding of the techniques and technology of photography was outstanding and he knew the best locations to provide an opportunity to capture some outstanding landscape photos. I gained a lot of knowledge from Mark and he was immensely helpful and very personable and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I will definitely book more tours through RMPA when I'm back in the area next.

Had a great full day of shooting iconic locations while in the Banff area with Mark Unrau. He knows the area well and knows photography. He helped me with composition, technique and he freely shared his experiences and knowledge with me. I highly recommend RMPA if you are looking to shoot beautiful landscapes and improve your skills! Mark is a great communicator, easy to talk to and very personable.

Mark was great with finding me a terrific photographer (Nick Fitzhardinge) for the days that I was staying in Banff. Mark was patient, professional and very informative with all my questions. He is very knowledgeable with location scouting and knows how to set up a worthwhile tour. As for my actual guide, Nick did not come to the tour with his own camera, nor was he shooting his own content at the same time as the one on one lesson. I cannot say how important that was to me and it merits a lot of respect for his ability and professionalism to only focus on me and my learning. I would highly recommend rocky mountain photo adventures to everyone and anyone who wants to take advantage of their time in banff by photographing it in all of its beauty with a trusted company who will get you to the locations at the right times. Thanks so much for everything Mark!

I'm so glad you enjoyed your session with our photographer Nick! I make sure all our guides are not taking their own photo's as we feel it is very important to focus on our guest's learning experience. We appreciate your comments!

We had a super exciting day together with Mark as our guide. The organization was excellent from the pick up to the whole tour. Mark individually addresses the level of performance of each participant and gives valuable instructions. So every participant can improve his personal level in photography in his own way. Although we did not have optimal weather, everyone was able to get the maximum out of it. The tour offers something for every skill level and has no specific equipment requirements. The catering of the participants during the whole tour was excellent. Anytime again !

As an amateur photographer, having the opportunity to work with Mark Unrau was a terrific experience. His knowledge and expertise really made the tour so much more enjoyable than just stopping to take a few images. The stops were all spectacular, however, Mark's passion for photography and his willingness to share his talent helped me capture unique images and will change my approach to photography from this point forward. The Abraham Lake and Banff Winter tour provides a variety of settings in which to photograph and sharpen skills. It's also a great introduction to the beauty of the Canadian Rockies. I would hightly recommend this tour for photographers of all experience levels - anyone can improve their photography whether using a smartphone or more sophisticated camera equipment.
