Practical skills are developed through exposure to all types of photography and to different areas of Banff Centre including the arts, leadership, mountain culture, and conference business. This unique position allows each individual to gain real-world experience in a high production environment where the quality of work and level of service are paramount.

The program strives to fill in the gaps left after formal education by providing a real-world work environment with training and skill-building. Who Should Apply? Do you have a keen interest in a career in photography, a willingness to learn, and a desire to broaden your experience? If yes, we’d love to hear from you! As well as being passionate about photography, applicants should have formal training or education in photography as well as an understanding of all the basics of composition and exposure, and lighting for studio and location. Applicants should be familiar with a variety of cameras and have experience using Photoshop or other image processing programs. Although participation in this program will enhance the technical skills of any photographer, those interested in pursuing a career in commercial photography will find this program especially valuable.

Eligibility As this program exceeds six months in length, enrollment is limited to Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada.
