The Itinerary for the 2017 Banff Landscape Photography Summit:
The following is the itinerary for the January 2017 Summit weekend. You can register for the Summit here. My guiding principle when I designed this conference was to create an exciting event that I would want to attend. I’m bringing you some of the best photographers, landscape photography journalists and presenters in the industry. I hope you feel the same way as I do and we’ll all see you at the Summit!
A detailed itinerary for Summit 2017 is coming very soon. A few of the presenters have already signed on and tickets have started selling. The following is an outline of the Itinerary for the Summit will look like with some of the key presenters already listed.
