Join Discover Photography for the ultimate photography tour of Glacier national park Montana. Glacier national park is a vast mountain range filled with mountain peaks, glaciers, lakes, waterfalls, canyons and limestone caves forming a breathtaking mountain landscape.

Our photographic tour of Glacier national park will include all the classic locations and some hidden gems. We will start the tour with the iconic Swiftcurrent lake, Two Medicine lake, Wild Goose island, Bowman lake and epic locations all along the Logan pass and Going to the Sun road.

All levels are catered for so whether you are new to photography, an enthusiast or a seasoned pro we provide a fun packed tour with a masterclass in landscape techniques from our resident professional photographer Chris Byrne.

While on location you will receive dedicated one-to-one tuition to help hone your landscape photography skills. Chris Byrne will offer guidance on both the technical and creative aspects of landscape photography and always be at hand to provide feedback on your photographs. At each location we visit Chris will make suggestions and offer advice on how to create wow factor images.

Tutor

It took many years for me to find photography as a means of artistic expression. I remember as a kid, my father had a collection of National Georgraphic magazines that were pristinely kept on a book shelf. Every time I would open one I was taken to a new and wonderful far away place with different cultures and scenery. Sure the articles were great, but the photographs…….ahhh the photographs, they were spectacular. I was particularly drawn to the nature shots. It probably isn’t a coincidence then that one of my other favorite things to do as a kid was get out in the woods with my brother and see what we could find. What I remember most was the smell of the trees and the dirt, and the sounds of the rushing creek and leaves in the breeze. It was all so peaceful and made the little kid me feel alive in the moment.

Many years later after choosing a different career path, I picked up a camera as a hobby and began shooting whatever was close by. Living in Philadelphia, this was mostly architecture and city landmarks. It wasn’t until I took a camping trip out to Glacier National Park, Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons, that I rediscovered my itch to get out and explore nature.  After that experience I was hooked once again on the outdoors and shifted my pursuits to landscape and nature photography.

The beauty of photography to me is the constant evolution of the photographer in the process.  The legendary Ansel Adams summed it up perfectly when he said “You don’t make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.” With every press of the camera shutter, the creative process, and the inspiration and journey that brought me to that scenic place, all of it builds upon itself to shape my vision and composition of every photograph I take.

As I fulfill my own curiosity to explore, create, and grow, I will be constantly adding new images to the site. It is my hope to capture images that will inspire people to get out and enjoy nature for themselves. There’s nothing quite like seeing a beautiful landscape with your own eyes, taking it all in with a deep breath, to make you feel more alive than ever.

Here’s to enjoying the never ending journey and thank you for following along.
