We strive to offer a different type of photographic tour than most. Our focus is on fun, adventure, culture and having experiences others will never have. In order to enjoy these experiences, we “Step Away from the Road”. Each tour is a customized journey for the location and the group joining us. While our “Step Away from the Road” adventures have an emphasis on remote nature and hiking, other trips will focus on unique culture and may have more roadside, easy to get to shooting locations. Essentially, if the destination is full of nature, expect to make the most of it. If we are visiting a country steeped in culture, expect to be immersed in local tradition.
