This Nepal photography tour sold out instantly. But then somehow over the past couple weeks there have been a few drop outs.
So, perhaps count yourself lucky as there are a few spots open.
And, obviously, this trip is going to be epic. But, it’s not your conventional photography workshop.
It’s a hiking trip with the goal of making really beautiful images. We’re going to be hiking the Annapurna Circuit, one of the most impressive, and photogenic, hikes anywhere on the planet. We’ll have Sherpas to assist with guiding, packing, safety, and the general movement along the trail. And, of course, the trip will be led by myself and Greg Snell – from a photography and video standpoint.
This photo tour is happening from October 14th to October 30th, 2019.
We’ll be starting the trip in Kathmandu. We’ll have a full day and a half in the capital to do some street photography. Then we’ll be setting off on an incredible 12 days of hiking and travel photography in some of the most stunning photo locations in Nepal.
It’s October, so it’s after monsoon season and perhaps the best time of year for trekking in Nepal.
You might be wondering if you can do this trip.
Well, normally I’d say that anyone can. But, the reality is that this is an epic hike at some fairly serious altitudes. So, yes, I do believe that anyone could do it. But it will take at least a small amount of fitness training and good health.
The distances on the hike aren’t extremely long. Most days we hike a maximum of 10km. But, at certain points we reach fairly extreme altitudes.
I think that if you’re planning on coming on this photo adventure, be sure to at least prep yourself with a solid month of training. Hit the step master at the gym, or go from runs. Build up that cardio.
Personally, I’m going to be hitting the gym because right now I’m all sorts of out of shape.
What to Expect?
I think that you can be expected to be challenged.
One of the hardest things about photography is getting to places that are worthy of photographs. This will be that challenge to the extreme.
But beyond the challenge of the hike itself, the other struggle is going to be taking photographs after a long hike. Sometimes, after spending a whole day on a trail you just want to lay in bed and relax. So grabbing a camera and heading out to make a photo can be a bit of a battle.
What Will the Average Day Look Like?
Obviously, every single day on the trip is going to be a little different. But, for the most part, days will sort of look like this:
- 5am – 7am: Photograph sunrise
- 7am-9am: Breakfast
- 9am-12pm: Hiking and photo-making on the trail
- 12pm-2pm: Lunch and break
- 2pm-4pm: Hiking and photography along the trail.
- 5pm-7pm: Photograph sunset
- 7pm-8pm: Dinner
- 8pm – : freetime & sleep.
