Abraham Lake is famous for its frozen methane bubbles. In the winter, trapped methane gas freezes in bubbles beneath the surface of the ice creating an otherworldly scene. Join me on my Abraham Lake Photography Workshop, January 2020  and I’ll show you how to capture the unique beauty of this incredible landscape, and take home images that inspire others!

Recommended Equipment

  • Camera with interchangeable lens
  • Spare batteries
  • Shutter release cable (recommended but not essential)
  • A headlamp for night shooting. White light is preferred (no red lights!)
  • A STURDY tripod. I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to have a solid tripod. Many people spend thousands of dollars on cameras and lenses, and mount their gear on a flimsy $60 tripod. If you invested money in a camera, don’t risk damaging it by putting it on a tripod that won’t stand up to wind and weather!

  • Warm layers
    • I recommend three layers to keep you toasty warm during our adventures. First, a thermal layer, such as Merino wool. This type of fabric keeps you warm and dries quickly. Second, a fleece layer. Fleece is very insulating. Finally, outer wear that blocks wind. A winter jacket and ski pants will be perfect.
  • Heat packs for inside of mittens and boots
  • Warm gloves, face mask, and toque
  • Micro spikes (ice cleats) that slip on over your boots
  • If you have skates, bring them! You can get some awesome day shots skating over the frozen bubbles, or just have some fun while waiting for the light!
  • Laptop for post-processing
