Banff is a picturesque resort town located in the province of Alberta, Canada. Enveloped within the Banff National Park, the town’s skyline is adorned by the peaks of the Rocky Mountains. The spectacular landscape and rich wildlife of Banff is a feast for the eyes. One of the best ways to explore this town is to book a photography tour organized by Brian Merry Photography.

This unique tour company is owned by landscape and wildlife photographer, Brian Merry and his vivacious wife, Kazue. While Brian has been a professional photographer for over two decades, Kazue worked as a nurse in Japan before moving to Canada in 2005. As a team, they curate and organize the most unique photography tours that let you experience the true spirit of Banff. 

Having lived in Banff for more than 20 years, Brian is familiar with places that a regular tourist guide won’t know of. He uses this experience to lead extraordinary photography tours that let you explore Banff like a local. Brian is accredited with the Professional Photographers of Canada (PPOC). Along with his wife, he has been organizing group and private photography tours since 2010.

You can choose among the sunrise/sunset, half-day, and full-day photography tours. The prices start at $125 per person (based on a minimum of two participants). Brian and Kazue will take you off the beaten track and let you explore and capture the hidden gems of Banff. Lunch is included in the full-day tours.

However, if you want to make the most out of your experience, request for a customized private tour. You can opt for a day tour of Banff National Park or a return trip to Jasper. For overnight trips, accommodation is arranged in comfortable hotels. The duo also organizes photography tours in Japan, Kazue’s home country, and Nova Scotia, where Brian grew up.
