Tour & Workshop Schedule

Michael leads a number of photo tours & workshops throughout the year. He also attempts each year to put together a photo trip to a locale where he has a photographic interest. These yearly trips are usually to an exotic overseas destination. Mike invites you to share with him on these adventures. Space is usually limited to a handful of photographers so first come first served. Attending tours and workshops is a great way to learn photo tips, bond with fellow photographers, and learn from a pro. Michael's goal is to be in the best place at the right time for the best photography opportunities. He looks forward to meeting you!

Are you new to photo tours? A few things to think about: Is your trip leader experienced? Michael has been leading trips for more than 10 years and has been selling images professionally for more than 35 years! If visiting federal lands (NPS, BLM, and USFS) does your leader have the necessary permits for group visits? It would be a shame to have your trip cut short by a law enforcement ranger asking for paperwork that does not exist!! Does the business have liability insurance? Does someone have recent first aid and CPR training? All of these things are the responsibility of the business you are traveling with; do not allow them to cut corners. This is your trip!

Another tip: do not wait too long to sign up for trips! Many trips are sold out a year in advance. Another reason to sign up early is that if a trip is not filling fast enough I may have to cancel it not realizing there are interested participants. Remember I have to put money down on advance reservations of lodging & transportation well before the actual trip. See you soon in the field! Mike.
