Photography Workshops by Brendan van Son
As a professional travel photographer with extensive experience as both an international tour leader and tour guide, it only made sense to start running photography workshops and tours on location. These photo tours are not just a typical photography tour, done with a bunch of camera equipment. Rather these trips will have an emphasis on improving your photography skills allowing participants to gain some on the ground experience, build some images for their portfolio, get an insight into the business of travel photography, and also see some amazing places.
I run 4 types of trips: exclusive (max 4 participants), photo tours (max 10 participants), clinics (weekend courses), and adventure trips.
Let my years of experience on the road guide you towards taking some amazing images in the featured destinations.

I’m excited to announce that I’ll be joined by Thomas Heaton for this photography workshop in Patagonia. This particular workshop will focus primarily on nature and landscape photography. So, it made total sense to bring along one of the world’s most talented landscape photographers for the trip. This trip will be not only a great opportunity to take photos, but to learn as a photographer, and to meet a great group of people as well.
Space is extremely limited on this trip. For more info, click here.

The location we get requested to run a photography tour to more than any other is Iceland. And, for anyone who has ever been, they’ll know exactly why. The country is absolutely stunning, and one of the most photogenic countries, in terms of natural environment, anywhere on the planet. It’s just never-ending photo ops.
At the moment, I’m hoping to run a trip to Iceland again in 2018. If interested, click here to sign up for updates regarding that trip.
