The Art of Storytelling image

They say a photograph is worth a thousand words. So, what stories are your images telling? This event is geared towards all photographers who seek to create not just pretty pictures, but also a way to deliver a story in an impactful manner. Over three intense days, blending field time and classroom time, OFFBEAT co-founders Dave Brosha and Paul Zizka will guide you as you strive to take your photography to the next level. This unique workshop will provide you with an intimate creative experience in an inspiring, retreat-like setting to help you improve your storytelling abilities.

Surrounded by the stunning mountain ranges of the Kananaskis area, we will explore topics such as: 

  • shooting with purpose
  • developing a body of work that is memorable and that exudes passion

  • sticking to a theme
  • presenting a photo essay 
  • and the paths to meaningful photography

About Dave Brosha

"Critically acclaimed....spectacular photos." - The Globe and Mail

Holding a passion for the world and an eye for the beauty it contains, northern commercial, personal, and landscape photographer Dave Brosha is on a continual journey to seek out and capture the beauty of this world – whether it’s the beauty of some of most extreme and pristine environments in the world, or the beauty of some of a person’s most personal moments. In addition to living throughout northern Canada for much of his life, Dave – along with his wife and children – have also lived in Asia and have traveled extensively through both the many provinces and territories of their native country and numerous countries abroad.

Dave’s personal affiliations and representations include the First Light agency, Aurora Images, Offset, Getty Images (stock), National Geographic (stock), and the Canadian Press, for which Dave is a freelance photographer. 

About Paul Zizka

Specializing in photographing in difficult conditions and hard-to-reach places, Paul has a passion for shooting alpine sports and backcountry experiences, capturing the spirit of adventurers and finding unusual angles of common mountain subjects. As a landscape photographer, he particularly enjoys the challenge of capturing nature’s beauty at night and the unique features that come with a dark sky – stars, Northern Lights and dramatic silhouettes.

Paul’s award-winning photos have been featured in a variety of publications, including IMPACT, Alpinist, Canadian GeographicIslandsPhotoLife, and explore magazine. In addition to his work for a number of clients, over the past few years Paul has created a signature collection of images for Banff Lake Louise Tourism, which are used to promote Banff National Park throughout the world.

In the Canadian Rockies, Paul has hiked extensively in the backcountry and photographed from the summits of countless peaks. His adventures abroad include a 1400-km unsupported double-crossing of Iceland on foot (2004), which is believed to be the first of its kind, and a 1488-km solo crossing of the South Island of New Zealand (2007). Recent travels have taken him backpacking in the Caribbean, exploring tiny insular nations of the Pacific, trekking in remote corners of Scandinavia and Nepal, and ski touring on Baffin Island.
