If you are curious about the world, crave adventure, love the outdoors, and appreciate the art of photography, we have something in common! Come and join us for an unforgettable experience of traveling the world, capturing the most amazing views, and learn to shoot and edit like a pro along the way. Our workshop instructors and guides will be right there with you to help you hone your craft with the camera in the field. You will learn a plethora of post-processing techniques in a workshop setting. Trips are designed to maximize the learning experience, but we will also encourage the individual growth of our clients as photographers. We welcome unique and personal photography styles and if you don’t have one, we can help you develop it. Likewise, your individual needs will be catered to throughout the duration of the workshop.
Together we will explore hidden waterfalls, see spellbinding auroras, visit the black sand beaches of Iceland, walk the bold cliffs of the Dolomites and quiet canals on gondolas in Venice, hike along the dreamy blue lakes of Banff, whimsically shaped canyons and gorges of Utah, breathtaking Pacific Coastline ocean views and so much more.
We have years of experience traveling the world and negotiating extreme landscapes for the adventure and in pursuit of incredible photographs. You will have the opportunity to experience the thrill of the adventure with us as we explore phenomenal locations on each expedition. It is our mission to get you to all the right places at all the right times to get breathtaking shots and just experience being there! The photos will become evidence that you were able to experience something as grand and fleeting as a picture-perfect sunset, a raging storm, or a scene of wildlife. We will stand among views so grand that you will feel humbled, we will guide you to the intimate sights of nature’s wonders to capture all of its beauty; we will show you the way of becoming an Xplorer. The inspiration, creative flow, and stunning pictures are guaranteed!
Our expeditions are carefully crafted to deliver one of a kind experience. For the majority of the excursions, we collaborate with local guides who add a personal touch of familiarity and affection to every sight we see. Our photographers have years of experience under their belts shooting landscapes and each have superb skills to teach you how to edit them to perfection at the end of the day. While we will not always be in a physical classroom, we will provide live presentations of editing techniques from the day’s shoot. These sessions will be customized based on the overall goals of the group. Naturally, each client will receive all of the individual attention they deserve to ensure thorough understanding of the material we cover and to reach their own goals. Keeping the group size small allows our team to devote ample time to each participant and develop a personal approach.
We will share our recipe for unforgettable pictures: lighting, composition, settings, and more. After the day in the field, we will teach you to refine and polish your work in Photoshop to attain that ultimate ethereal awe of an image. It is often challenging for a photo to do justice to a subject; especially if that subject has prominent grandeur, color, and features. Our courses on post processing will help bring life back to the subjects in your raw photographs by creating depth and an organic flow that will be the next best thing to being there in person. Occasionally, we find ourselves shooting a subject that may be photographed thousands of times per day and our lessons on composition, shooting techniques, and post processing are a sure way to make your photos stand out from the rest. Whether you bought your camera yesterday or have been shooting for years, we welcome all levels of photography experience!
If you join us for an expedition, you don’t have to forgo your vacation! We incorporate a leisure aspect while indulging in local foods, immersing the group in culture, and some time to relax after a day of shooting in the field. Let us do the planning for you! We will designate convenient pickup and drop off locations for the beginning and end of the expedition. Inside of that time, we will handle all of the accommodation and travel so you are able to focus on getting the shots and enjoying the trip. We plan the trips to be as all-inclusive as possible.
If you are ready for the experience of a lifetime, Come and join us for an adventure and Capture Your Moment.
Be brave, be bold, be an ApertureXplorer!
