Jess Lee has spent four decades photographing the world, from Africa to Alaska, in search of the unique images found in magazines such as National Geographic, Smithsonian, Defenders of Wildlife, National Wildlife, Audubon, Sierra, Paris Match, and many more. He’s offering a limited number of photography workshops, tours and expeditions to the world’s photographic hot spots.
These trips are designed to put you in special places at the right time and teach you how to bring home the most unique images possible. Not only will you learn photography in great locations, you’ll learn about making images that tell a story.
Our photo tours and workshops are instructional nature photography tours with an emphasis on creating new classic images. Jess feels that everyone has it in them to become an outstanding photographer. You already possess the passion and desire; by studying with us, you’ll learn to polish your skills and fine-tune your craft.
Your current skill level doesn’t matter. After a Jess Lee Photo Workshop, your skill level will increase. Jess will pass on his knowledge of the natural world, its history and the species being photographed. Jess will also show you how to find, approach and create great photographs, maximizing your overall experience.
Our goal is to refine your own special photographic vision, and our small group sizes assure you of individual attention during our workshops. Jess’s relaxed, easy style allows you to learn at your own pace. Most of all, we have fun!
Days in the field are typically long; we head out early and stay out late to take advantage of the prime light. Instruction subjects covered and techniques explored include: creative composition—the rules, when and how to break them; landscape and scenic techniques to expand your vision; how to find, approach and photograph wildlife; predicting behavior, lens selection, macro and close up techniques.
This instruction is field based, without the burden of after lunch classroom lectures. With our small groups (six per guide is the normal maximum), we can tailor our teaching to the things you need. Instruction is in the field where and when you need it.
