If you have seen any of my photography presentations, you know that I love to teach photography and always make it fun to learn. It does not matter if you are new to photography or a trained professional, we will accommodate you to make sure you are getting amazing photos and having a great time. Come and join us for an amazing experience, not only through the lens, but through your eyes as well.

Unlike many other photo tours, my tours include most airfare, food, drinks and just about everything else. And my sponsorship agreement with Canon even allows me to get you FREE loaner cameras and lenses! (The reason you see all the big lenses you see in the photo above!)

I personally teach on each tour, and share my love and passion for photography with each attendee. And many people ask me if they can come along even if they don't shoot with a Canon camera, and the answer is a definite "yes". It does not matter what camera you use, it is what you do with it! You can see many testimonials from past workshop attendees towards the bottom of this page. 

One-on-one trips are also available

Alaska

(4 Spots Available)

September 6-13, 2025

$13,500 (per person and only double occupancy, since we have VERY limited space)

Finally - after years of neglect, I have added an exclusive photo tour to Alaska. We will be staying on a luxury yacht for the entire trip (getting off along the way) and getting up close and personal with the wildlife and landscape of this amazing region. The boat only has rooms for 6 guests (and captain, crew and me of course), so this is a very exclusive small tour through very remote regions. This is a really unique time of year as well. We will get to experience the awe-inspiring salmon run firsthand! Witness the bears engage in their natural behavior as they feed on the salmon returning to the creeks.

 

We plan to see the following on the trip:

* Humpback whales

* Killer whales

* Bald eagles

* Porpoise

* Bears

* Sea lions

* Moose

* Glaciers

* Huge icebergs

* Lots and lots of birds

 

Our small group will be staying on this amazing 85' yacht for the entire trip, so we our beds, luggage, and camera gear are with us the whole time. We are cruising through the inside passage of Alaska, so the waters are calm as the areas are protected by the mountains and bays. The accommodations and meals are top notch, filled with fresh Alaskan seafood, so get ready to be spoiled. 

Click HERE to see more details on this trip.

This is my smallest and most exclusive tour, so please reserve your spots early!

Life is not measured by the number
of breaths we take, but the moments
that take our breath away.

Life should not be a journey to the
grave with the intention of arriving
safely in an attractive and well-preserved
body, but rather to slide in
sideways, camera in one hand,
passport in the other, body thoroughly
used up, totally worn out and screaming

WOO HOO - what a ride!

 

- Jeff Cable (modified quote from Hunter S. Thompson)
