I chose the Banff at First Light session and loved it. Mark was very informative and knowledgeable and I learned a great deal about my camera and composition. He was more than willing to answer any of my questions and his instructions were easy to follow. I highly recommend taking a session with them.

Mark was so awesome! He really took the time to explain how certain compositions worked and why certain angles make better "eye appeal" photos. I enjoyed that he took the time to really show me why certain things worked better so that I can take this information on my own and capture stunning landscape photos myself. He is super outgoing and laid back that it was like talking to an old friend.

Learned so much about how to get a good photo, Mark Unrau was really excellent. Knowledgeable about the area, the history, the best places to get a good shot and also lots of tips on setting up to shoot, composition tips, and what settings to use on the camera. I had a wonderful day and would certainly do another tour. Two tips, take a spare camera battery (Mark was kind enough to offer his as a spare but I didn't need it as mine ran out on the last shot) and wear warm clothing/ something warm on your feet.

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.
