Immerse yourself in the unparalleled beauty of California’s redwood coast, refine your photography skills, and create lasting memories with like-minded individuals on this extraordinary photo safari led by two photography experts, Jason P. Odell and Rick Walker.

Our journey begins in the coastal town of Crescent City, California, and will take us through majestic redwood groves. There, we’ll work on capturing a variety of forest subjects, including the redwoods, ferns, and other forest flora and fauna.

The safari also includes many shooting locations on the California coast, with excursions into southern Oregon. You’ll photograph rugged coastlines, waves, rocky outcrops and sea stacks. You’ll also get expert advice and field instruction along the way. With a student to instructor ratio of 4:1, this experience offers maximum learning.

The Image Doctors #216

On the joys (and fears) of downsizing

This week, we’re joined by Dennis Mook, a former forensic photographer and longtime friend of the program. Recently, Dennis has been contemplating switching from a full-frame kit to smaller format cameras due to their smaller size and weight; something that we can all appreciate as we get older. But, are there compromises with using smaller-format systems, such as Fuji (APS-C) or Micro 4/3rds? We’ll get Dennis’ first-hand take on this, as he’s used Nikon, Fuji, and Olympus/ OM System cameras for many years now.

POTD: Christmastime in Prague

Wishing you all a happy holiday season 2023

I just got back after nearly two weeks in Europe for a Christmastime photo tour. We started in Prague, and then continued to Vienna, where we boarded a Danube river cruise. Christmas markets in this part of the world are simply magical. I want to wish everyone here a joyous holiday season, and I’m looking forward to what 2024 will bring!
