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:

Ron was great, not only was he open and knowledgeable as an instructor, but a wonderful person. Couldn’t have asked for better.

N. Taveras - Japan

Your talk on photography and the spirituality of photography was a great revelation for me as I have always felt this way about it myself. Your talk was the affirmation I had been searching for. It was great beyond words to be participating with a group of Artists who were as passionate as I about photography and image making. 

M. McLaughlin - Japan

Ron was great, as usual – very open, fair, positive, and inspiring. Stefan was wonderful – extremely knowledgeable about Iceland and just about everything. Never stopped working.

N. Taveras - Greenland/Iceland

Known as a land of fire and ice, Iceland’s topography is stark and diverse, with a light that seems to emanate from within.  In a land subject to violent forces of nature, Ron’s quiet, yet powerful, vision is able to capture the country’s pristine beauty.  Many of his images of snow patterns, broken ice, surf, and lava, tend to create abstract patterns that draw the viewer in. And, throughout the book, Ron evocatively captures the softness of waterfalls and swirling tides, as well as the power of lava formations and sea stacks. Even if you have been to Iceland, one is mysteriously touched by the haunting landscape.  And, if, like me, you haven’t been there – his captivating photographs make you long to visit this vast, unspoiled country

So many good experiences, good hotels and ecolodges for birds, great food everywhere, each location had specialties that made it well worth the travel. Every trip has special moments, and this trip had many!!!

Hello Friends,

I arrived home at midnight on Saturday with all of my countless photos, aged rum, colorful souvenirs, and fabulous memories safe and sound!  It was a spectacular trip back to Cuba to see much more than I had seen six years ago.  My countless thanks to the photo leaders, local guide, and Strabo Tours for all of the photo expertise, technical assistance, cultural information, and great planning.

Based on your advice I had everything I needed for the trip. Greetings upon arrival were great as well as all transportation, group size was also good. Local guide, Cathy & Gordon worked well as a team and were very laid back which I very much appreciated. Variety of locations was also great. We got useful tips on camera care and shooting for the environment.

Guides were both wonderful. Local guide is such a talented young man and the driver was friendly and provided lots of information about Lofoten. Locations were wonderful, bedrooms a bit small but nice shared space. Wonderful trip even though the weather was cold, we had a good time and many fine moments for photography. Some of the beauty is actually due to the less pleasant weather.

Hard to say what the highlight of the trip was, the scenery was breathtaking and I enjoyed it all. It was interesting to see the leader's workflow process. Also very helpful when I asked questions in the field. I've traveled with other photo tour compaies (and other general tour companies) and the information you provide before the trip - country info, suggested reading, culture etc. is far and away much better than any other. Your help with pre-planning was also great. Guides did a great job getting us to iconic spots. Only suggestion is to work in some scenic churches for variety.
