Travel Photography Workshops

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.

Let my years of experience on the road guide you towards taking some amazing images in the featured destinations.

Patagonia Photography Tour & Workshop (Now Booking)

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.

Peru Travel Photography Tour & Workshop (planned for 2019)

Peru Travel Photography Workshop and Tour

Back by popular demand, we’re heading to Peru again in 2017.  After our sold out photography tour to Peru in May of 2015, we’ve been asked about going back here than any other destination.  So, we’re going to run another one! This country is just one of those destinations that is perfect for travel photography.  You have a little bit of everything, and each day offers something completely new and exciting.  From the coastal desert, to the Andes, and down into the wonder that is Machu Picchu, Peru will keep you on your toes for photo ops.  There are few countries in the world that can compete with Peru in regards to the quality of each destination, and you’ll be awe-struck nearly the entire trip; we promise you that.

Iceland Photography Tour and Workshop (Planned for 2018)

Cuba Travel Photography Tour and Workshop

There are few countries in the world that rival Cuba from a travel photography perspective.  You get a little bit of everything here on this island country.  There are friendly people happy to let you photograph them.  There are the classic cars and colonial buildings.  And the landscapes of this interesting place are highly underrated.  This photography tour to Cuba will take you to places like the landscapes and tobacco plantations of Viñales, the stunning architecture of Havana, and the friendly faces and cobbled streets of Trinidad.

  1. Hi, Brendan.
    I’m going to La Serena/Chile next month and I’d like to take a photophy tour.
    Do you know any agency or person to recommend me?

    • For photo tours, no. I don’t Gisela. I used to work with an adventure tour company in town. Do you need a photography tour company? Or would any guide work for you?

  6. Hi Brandon,
    I love your shots and I’m happy that people like you are doing travel photography workshops. People learn a lot from guys like you. My name’s Jan and I’m a young photographer based in Prague where I run Johnny’s Prague Photo Tours. Prague is a beautiful city with lots of shooting opportunities and Czech republic has a lot to offer photography-wise, too. If you would ever consider doing a travel photography workshop in Central Europe, go for Czech republic. It would be my pleasure to work with you and your clients here. Good luck with traveling and shooting 🙂 Best, Jan
