There's no better place than Badlands National Park for learning landscape composition.

Lake Superior
Autumn Photo Tours

October 10-14, 2022 (SOLD OUT).

The rugged southern coastline of Lake Superior is famous for its colorful, mineral-stained cliffs and sculpted sandstone sea caves. We explore and photograph the aPictured Rocks area in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, which contains some of the best scenery in the U.S. Midwest. As an added bonus, these tours are timed to coincide with peak autumn color along the lake shore! 

Big Cypress Bayou
Autumn Photo Tours

All 2022 dates sold out.

The cypress swamps of Lake Caddo and the Big Cypress Bayou in Texas are places of wild, haunting beauty. Clad in Spanish moss, the trees take on expressive shapes. The bayou comes colorfully alive in autumn, with an explosion of reds, oranges, and yellows. On this photo tour, we'll use my small inflatable (Zodiac-type) boat to explore the hidden, intimate, and wild places of the bayou. The tour is limited to two people at a time, and it presents a unique opportunity to photograph the bayou and make photos that stand out from the rest.
