What's this concept - this Dirt Cheap Photo Tour idea - all about?
It's about two things. It's about shooting landscape and travel photos in some of the world's most beautiful locations at a price way below what other workshops and tours charge. And it is also about having a lot of fun with fellow photographers who share a common passion - and who don't want to spend time in a workshop classroom setting when they could be out shooting.
My wife and I created this company because we thought there should be a place where people could find a photo tour hosted by an experienced guide that wouldn't cost a ton of money. Most of the photo workshops you see advertised in the back of the photo magazines cost well over $1000, and we thought that was way out of line. And most of those workshops spend a lot of time in a classroom setting reviewing and critiquing photos.
We don't. We go out and shoot 10 to 12 hours per day for three plus days.
The photo tours we put together have a participant cost of $599. Think of it as getting driven in a premium SUV to all the prime photo spots in the area at the right time of day - while accompanied by a landscape, nature and travel photographer who knows what he is doing. And then add in the camaraderie of doing it with other photographers who enjoy photography as much as you do.
All for about the same cost as renting a high clearance SUV by yourself for the same period and paying for gas and entrance fees.
We also have finalized our second tour of Grand Teton National Park for July 15th - 18th, 2013. This is traditionally the best time to find wildflowers in the Jackson Hole area to accompany the stellar landscape scenes that are so prevalent in this world class setting.
As in the past, we'll be visiting some of the most famous landscapes in North America and some little known sites that I've found after much back roads exploring in the area.
Also, when we visit the Tetons we will most likely encounter wildlife during our visits to the Jackson Hole area. On previous tours we have seen bison, moose, elk, bald eagles, owls, osprey, grizzly and black bears, and pronghorn antelope.
