Instructional Photo Tours

Field Photography Workshops and Tours with Jason Odell

Finding Your Light
Experience photography in breathtaking settings
Find your light on a small-group photo safari, where you’ll get personalized instruction.

My approach to photography is a holistic one, based on the idea that photography is a craft that goes beyond the click of the shutter. The best way to improve your photography is in a small-group setting, where you can immerse yourself in the craft. My photo tours and workshops offer you the experience of photography as a craft, starting with composition and exposure and ending with post-processing.  I deliberately keep my safari groups small (typically 8 or fewer) so that I can work with you directly to answer your questions in the field and in the classroom.

Why Join  An Instructional Photo Tour with Jason Odell?
Colorado Wildflower Safari
  • Great Locations: I’ve already done the advance scouting work so that I can take you to the best spots each day. A typical safari day will include both morning and evening photo shoots that are timed to get the best light at the best locations.
  • Travel internationally in comfort: When I lead international tours, my travel specialist and I arrange the trip so that we have comfortable lodging and excess seating capacity on land tours so you can spread out with your gear. You’ll never feel like you’re holding the group back, as we are all photo enthusiasts. International tours are generally limited to 12 photographers.
  • Small groups: Most of my tours are limited to 8 or fewer participants, allowing you to get YOUR shot and reducing competition for instructor access.
  • Workflow and Processing Sessions: A good photograph starts with the camera but ends in your computer. During the day, we work together to download and process our images. It’s during this time where you’ll learn the skills and techniques to bring out the best in your photos.
  • Expand your creativity: My goal is to ensure that you understand each technique in a way that enables you to expand your vision and creativity for your future photo adventures.
  • Meet great people: Meet other photography enthusiasts who share your passion for great images.

I also offer many online training classes throughout the year, as well as private online mentoring sessions.
