Mongolia is one of the best adventures anyone could have.  It’s rolling hills, epic mountains, and views for days.  Throw in the human element like eagle hunters and nomadic herders, and you have one of the most photogenic places in the world.  From a video standpoint, there’s a never-ending array of things to capture on film.  

As a result, there are few places better on the planet for a proper video adventure.  The footage from this trip will be epic!

Mongolia Video / Photography Tour

Our 2019 trip to the west of Mongolia led to some amazing imagery and moments.  So, I thought I’d let Greg have some more fun and run a Mongolia photography tour out west again in 2020.

The trip is going down in August 2020.

This trip will be an adventure-style photography trip with a focus on video.  These adventure series trips go to the more adventurous locations and the focus is all about getting people out of their comfort zone and out exploring.  We aren’t going to be out having a “hard” adventure.  It will be organized, and it will be fairly comfortable.  But, the focus is more on having an amazing time rather than teaching a photography course.  That said, we’ll get great photos.  And, you’ll learn.

Comfort Level?

If you saw the last Mongolia series you know that parts of Mongolia are a little bit rough.  The accommodation out west will mostly be in nomadic ger camps where the accommodation will be shared.

You’ll be transported around in amazing Russian vans that are an adventure in themselves. 

No, this is definitely not a luxury trip to Mongolia.  But, it will be so rewarding.

In Ulanbaatar, you’ll be staying at a 4-star hotel.

What’s a “Greg Trip”

These are trips operated by Greg Snell.  In general, that means that Brendan won’t be around. 

If you don’t know Greg, go and check out his YouTube channel. But essentially, Greg is a travel videographer and photographer with many years of experience not only in this field, but as a tour leader and guide.  With Greg, you’re in great hands.
