Sign up soon for 4 Days of One-On-One Personal Instruction Workshop In Some of The Most Beautiful Locals in the World..  You chose the place, the time, and the curriculum!  A truly customized workshop to fit your schedule, taste, and skills.

All costs except tuition, transportation in the field perks, and park related fees are the responsibility of the student.

What’s Included - Four days/ three nights packed with photography, instruction, and adventure in the location of your choice, plus more!

  • Pre-workshop Personal Skype Session – Before all of our destination workshops, you can benefit from a personal Q&A Skype session at your convenience with Andrew, to ask any questions you might have about your upcoming trip.  This is immensely helpful to gat to know your instructor, and to making sure you feel prepared for the great adventure ahead!
  • Welcome Packet - You will receive your personalized welcome packet 2-6 weeks before the workshop with maps, helpful local info, nature facts, FAQ’s, technical photography information on what we will be discussing, a comprehensive list of what to bring, and more.
  • All Park/ Recreation Related Fees – We believe in and support our National Parks, Forest, and Wilderness system, so we are proud Commercial Use Authorization Permit holders with Grand Teton & Big Bend National Parks.  And though we may be other locations for this trip, this provides us a good relationship with the federal & state authorities that oversee this vast and beautiful country, and it helps to fund fantastic conservation projects that would not be possible without special use educators and their students!  So a portion of your tuition goes right back to help protect the park you love!
  • Numerous Guided Hikes – We will embark on at least one hike per day through the intensely beautiful landscape of the park and some surrounding areas.  We will explore the myriad flora and fauna of the ecosystems, shooting anything and everything in nature, discussing a wide range of photographic tips and techniques.
  • Astro Photography - You might get used to your siestas on this trip, as we will spend (on at least two nights) the first hour or two before sunrise and after sundown navigating the exciting night sky with our cameras.  We will discuss and execute several techniques including night landscapes, star trails, painting with light, and more!
  • Transportation – Andrew will provide transportation while in the field.  Riding together will give even more Q+A and conversation time.  Andrew will coordinate to pick you up at the airport of your choice near the desired workshop location.
