SMALL GROUPS

We only take out small groups to maximize personal attention and instruction while in the field. The small group experience is vital to a successful, fun and cohesive photography excursion where every member feels like an integral part of the trip. We hike, shoot, travel, eat, learn and marvel at the wonders of nature – as a team!

EXCELLENT MEALS

In our opinion food is one of the most, if not the most important part of any trip! We eat great out on the trail as well as at handpicked restaurants on all of our photography excursions. On some trips we even cook for our guests out in the field during evening photo sessions!

NATURALIST & PHOTOGRAPHY GUIDE

Many Photography workshop instructors can teach you what F-Stop to use or what shutter speed would work – but can they tell you all about the natural and human history of the landscape and the regions you are photographing? We can and will! We are avid hikers and nature lovers at heart. You will learn all about the Geology, Wildlife, Flowers, Birds etc. of any region you choose to photograph with Backcountry Journeys.
