Upcoming Photo Workshops

Are you passionate about photography? Would you like to take your creativity to the next level? Then we would love to have you join us for a tour or workshop. From the very beginner to the seasoned professional our emphasis is on creative expression and developing a personal style. We’ll always cover basics and fundamentals but we want you to explore creative techniques and take your expression of the landscape to new levels.

Taking a tour or workshop with us means we’ll be in some of the most beautiful places on the planet. Connecting to these amazing places will always be the starting point. We’ll share our in-depth knowledge of these locations and show you some of our favorite spots that are off the beaten path. Then we’ll focus on helping you with the techniques to express what you want to say about the place. We love to be asked questions and you can observe our workflow and we will work with you to help you make some inspirational photographs.

I wanted to thank you for providing me with such a great experience on the Southwest Photo Adventure last month. The help and instruction you provided me before, during and after the trip resulted in a portfolio of pictures that I could not be happier with. I especially appreciate the amount of time you spent working with me on an individual basis to ensure that my specific goals, such as night photography and improved technical understanding of my camera’s capabilities were met. The compositions and sharp details in these pictures were things I could never achieve before the workshop. The preparation, incredible and diverse locations, and easy, fun company also made this an exceptionally memorable experience. The trip exceeded my expectations and I can’t wait to join you on another of your workshops!

This was the 6th photo workshop I had been on. Hands down, I thought it was the best. There were 5 or 6 participants and the great mentoring of two professionals. Josh and Ken’s priority was helping us with composition, finding great sites to photograph and help us with post processing.

Their attitudes and pleasant dispositions were incredible.

I’d strongly recommend a workshop with them.

I had a great journey to Canada with Ken and Josh. The scenery is nothing short of spectacular there and that time of year is perfect. We had a fantastic group, and along with Ken and Josh’s guidance, I came away with some killer photos and better yet some fantastic memories. I would re-visit this tour in the future, no doubt about it.

I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for the amazing Autumn in the Aspens photo workshop. The workshop exceeded all of my expectations and I cannot imagine a better forum, or format, for a photography course.

Not only did I end up with some amazing photographs, the skills and techniques I learned will last me a lifetime.
