Take your photography to a new level with Picture Methods Photo Tours & Workshops.
We visit locations that include Alaska, Florida, Arizona, Colorado, Washington, New Mexico and just about anywhere in the United States for private or custom tours and workshops.
Our tours and workshops are photography-centric events held in the best locations for nature and wildlife. Our aim is to inform, educate, inspire, and edify photographers who travel with us.
When you attend one of our events, you’ll have access to the best photo locations at the best time to position you in the best light and place possible to make compelling photographs.
Every step of the way, you’ll have access to a published, professional photographer as your guide.
Your trip leader puts the priority on helping you make quality images, and the leader’s shots will never take precedence over yours.
Our trips are comprised of small groups, so you have access to plenty of personal instruction time in the field. You’ll come back from one of our trips with portfolio-quality photographs. We guarantee it.
On a Picture Methods photo tour or workshop, you’ll learn how to:
- Spot the best subjects and select the best perspective and learn why that skill is so important.
- Predict bird and wildlife behavior.
- Use both wind and sun angle to your advantage.
- Find the best light and understand its role in making quality images.
- Properly compose an image and tell stories with your camera.
- Identify which of your images tell the best stories and what to do differently with those that didn’t succeed.
- The finer points of proper exposure using digital cameras and how to get the right exposure every time.
- Techniques for properly approaching wild birds and wildlife.
- Resources for accurately identifying many species of birds.
- The value of shooting in manual mode and how to use autofocus properly.
All of our trips are eco-friendly and properly insured and permitted. Our trips are for photographers of all skill levels, using any brand of camera. All of our trips are non-smoking. We’d like to help you realize your artistic vision.
