I’m excited to announce that I’ve arranged for a 10-night private photo tour to Scotland! On this small group (max 10) tour, we’ll have a private coach and 4-star accommodations as we tour the countryside from Stirling to Loch Lomond. As your leader, I’ll be working with each participant to help you discover new creative approaches to travel photography.

I want to spend a little time talking about the importance of size in photography. While there are numerous factors we photographers must face when we are making decisions about our photographic subjects and adventures, we can’t escape the importance of size. Whether you’re choosing a camera, lens or your next adventure, size does matter. Continue reading For Photographers, It’s a Matter of Size→
If you’re looking to transform your images from snapshots into stunning creative photos, try experimenting with long exposure photographs. All you need is a camera that supports bulb exposure mode, a tripod, and in some cases a dark filter. In twilight conditions, long exposure photographs are pretty easy. Set your lens aperture to f/16 or f/22 and then set your camera’s ISO value to its the lowest possible setting.
To capture long exposure photographs during the day, you’ll need to add a dark filter to your lens. These filters, called a solid neutral density filters, enable you to capture a long exposure photograph during the day. In either case, keep in mind that you’ll need a solid tripod to make a long exposure photograph.

8-Day Photo Tour From Amsterdam, April 15-23, 2018
I’m excited to announce that I’ve arranged a spring photo tour to Holland for April 15-23, 2018 for the incredible tulip festival. On this 8-day, small-group tour, we will explore the Dutch countryside, tulip fields, windmills, and more.
Our itinerary includes five nights in Amsterdam, plus three nights in the countryside exploring smaller towns and the coast. We will of course visit the world-famous Kerkenhof Gardens during the tulip bloom, and tour the windmill village of Kinderdijk. Our private tour includes a 16-passenger coach and local, English speaking guides to put us in the best spots for photography along the way.
After driving north into the countryside, we’ll stay in the “Venetian” town of Gierthoorn, which has canals but no roads. We also have a ferry to the island of Schiermonikoog, where we’ll have photograph scenes and colorful lighthouses.
We’ll then return to Amsterdam for three nights. Our final two days will be filled with photo walks in Amsterdam as well as free time to explore the gardens, canals, and museums as you see fit.
This tour is limited to 8 photographers! To book, please call my travel partner, Pat Hand at +1 (404) 913-4386
