Course Details:

Learn how to play with light, capture the natural beauty of the Rocky Mountains, and to edit images!

This course is for any lady that would like to learn how to take that perfect shot. Whether you use a Go Pro, Cellphone or DSLR this photography course will give you the head start on your journey towards outstanding outdoor and adventure photography.

Our instructor Crista Lee from Crista Lee Photography has been featured in National Geographic,  Gripped, Red Bull Adventures, Global News, McLean's, and the Trento Mountain Film Festival. Crista Lee was also a judge for the 2018 Banff Mountain Film Festival Photo Essay Contest. 

Crista-Lee is a professional photographer who specializes in adventure and human experience photography.  She is based in Canmore, Alberta.  For the last 20 years her photography, love for climbing, and the mountains, has brought her all over the world on adventures. One of her iconic images was taken during the June 2013 Alberta floods and described by the National Post as "an unwitting symbol of the resilience, love, and hope Albertans have displayed during the floods."  

Beyond being an outstanding human being, Crista Lee is a grateful mother of two beautiful children, a dedicated wife, ambassador of Rab Equipment, and supported by C.A.M.P. USA, and Nikon Professionals.

As one of Canada’s largest all female adventure communities The Lady Alliance strives to break down barriers and get women outside. Our goal is to provide adventures and courses for women, connecting them to a growing community of adventurer-seekers world-wide. The Lady Alliance is a highly engaged community, looking to create a safe and encouraging space where ladies can grow, learn and explore together. "WOW! This past September long weekend, I participated in an amazing weekend of adventure organized by The Lady Alliance. I did not know any of the other ladies before this weekend so I was unsure what to expect but within the first few hours I felt like I had instantly made 28 new friends!" - Amanda Bonner - The Lady Alliance Facebook Page.


It was a great group to experience my first hike with! Definitely will do out again :)
I had an amazing time and met some great people, that I hope to continue to hike with in the future. I will be recommending future hiking meetups and events with The Lady Alliance to others and I will definitely be attending other events myself.


The Lady Alliance absolutely mastered the perfect balance of providing courses and trips that are appealing and challenging, while combining like-minded women with common goals, all in beautiful locations with awesome leaders, guides, and representatives! I will definitely be signing up for more courses in the future, and I suggest that you do the same!
