Sadly, due to the virus spreading around the world, we had to cancel all three of these workshops.  Our clients safely is always first-priority, so we had no other choice.  Also, the US/Canada border is closed anyway.

We feel the summer Michigan workshop is our best instructional close-up and landscape workshop.  Why?  The weather tends to be superb and the variety of subjects is tremendous.  You will be a far better photographer after attending this workshop!

Michigan Fall Color Workshop

John has conducted two or more fall color workshops near Munising, MI every year since 1987.  Nobody knows the wealth of opportunities found here as well as he does.  Northern Michigan is superb for autumn color.
Two sessions are available.

Kenya Wildlife Photo Safari

We have decided not to offer Kenya in 2021.  The virus problem is creating huge problems for travel by airplanes.  So will put Kenya on hold for another year. 
I have led more than forty photo tours to Kenya over the past 35 years.  This tour is absolutely wonderful.  It is the most repeated tour I lead, and no wonder, as it is tremendous.  This is a productive wildlife photo tour where you will get our guidance for producing super wildlife images every day of the tour.  
We are still working on this brochure and expect to post it by the end of Feb.

Winter at Yellowstone 2021

3x2 Emerald Spring_01.
Our 2021 brochure is now available for the three Yellowstone photo tours Dixie and I are leading in 2021.   We live only 17 miles from West Yellowstone, so it is our home town.  Since 1993, John has led more than 100 week-long photo tours in Yellowstone during the quiet and beautiful winter season.  We take you to super spots for photos in a snowcoach, and present an instructional program on photography each night after dinner.
These are long days, but everything is optional.  I am an expert at Yellowstone in winter and teach the leading-edge techniques to make outstanding images of this magnificent park.
