What you’re saying about us

After each photo tour we request each of our clients to complete an evaluation form and return their favorite images for our photo gallery. Our clients experience the best that photographic adventure has to offer. Many of them travel with us year after year – here’s why:

Cathy & Gordon are great tour leaders because they are uniquely qualified in nature and in photography.  I highly recommend taking one of their tours IF you want to learn a lot and get some fine images for your collection.  They really spent time with those of us on the tour to be sure we got the images we wanted.  In my opinion, you can't lose by taking one of the Adventure tours." 


I want to tell you what a wonderful experience last week was for me.  I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and I feel I really learned a lot.  I can see a progression in my pictures of getting better as the days went by...Thanks for all your help and the time you spent with us.


What a fantastic trip!  Spain was mindblowing – opening up new vistas not explored before.  And what a great group.  I feel like I was among the best of creative geniuses on this trip.  I have no intention of comparing myself to others.  I just keep on learning.

The trip covered all the bases - the outdoors, (The Julian Alps and Lake Bled), a coastal town with pastel-colored houses (Piran), and a wonderfully preserved Old Town complete with castle, cathedral, fountains and bridges (Ljubljana).  Slovenia was a complete surprise as to what it had to offer and has become one of my favorite European destinations.

Nancy was amazing. Extemely patient and nothing ruffled her. She was helpful with both photography and logistics and often went beyond what would be expecgted in her role.

Ron does a great job of getting us to beautiful places and keeping us very comfortable, and helping us with our photography.  His love for Vinalhaven came through in many ways.

Having Ron show us editing was great. I would suggest he do 2 photos per person, though I learned a lot from watching him work on others’ photos. And the matting was very helpful. Leaving with a printed photo all matted and in a protective plastic was great.

Vinalhaven is a very special place.  I am so glad we got there. And as per Ron’s style, he took us to hidden away places and privately owned spots. We got much more of a sense of the island through the local people Ron interacted with. I enjoyed getting much more used to IR, Ron’s comments during the week were very helpful regarding the IR. I didn’t use my regular camera on purpose, so I’d have to concentrate on the IR. The group was lovely.

Exploring and photographing the diverseness that Namibia has to offer was a fantastic photographic experience. The trip was well named the Wonders of Namibia, from the Quiver Trees, to “ ghost  town” of Kolmansop, to Sossusvlei Dunes, learning and visiting the ethic tribes of Herero & Himba , and the abundance of African animal sights truly makes this trip a WONDER – ful travel experience



I had a feeling that to spend time with Doug, would be enlightening after reading his ideas about Zen and the art of photography, and indeed it was!! His approach has to be experienced....his philosophy and vision are unique.....his daily monring poems, quotes throughout the day, evening gatherings and critiques were always inspirational.  I feel like the whole experience was a gift.
