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:

Charles workshops are the best I've ever attended.  It was good to have his hands-on instruction and lectures.  Too many workshops I've attended, they take you to a place and say 'Take photos.'  I can do that myself for free!  I enjoyed seeing your great photography, and it inspires me to keep going. The supportive image evaluations were very good as well."

Charles encouraged me to play outside my comfort zone and experiment with creative photography.  It was clear to me that he has a passion for teaching photography, helping to bring out your creative side, and his lectures were easy to follow and then incorporate in the next field session.  The techniques I learned with both my traditional SLR and my smartphone led to a gallery show where I have sold seven prints!  A week in the field with Charles will not only expand your world to creative photography, but also realign you with the beauty Mother Nature holds.  My photography has gained a new dimension of creativity thanks to Charles, and I am looking forward to my next adventure participating in of his workshops!"

I learned many new photographic techniques and had ample time in the field to try out these new techniques. These techniques included many impressionistic camera techniques as well as creative macro techniques.  Charles was very helpful in the field both explaining techniques and then demonstrating them to you on your equipment.  I found this very helpful.  Charles does not do any personal photography in the field but makes his way to everyone to make sure that questions are answered and techniques demonstrated.  He also provides supportive image evaluations to help take my images to the next level.  We had a great time on the trip, made some beautiful images and met wonderful people.  Charles made this all possible.  I highly recommend his trips.

I am pulling together some amazing prints to show to friends this Saturday at a breakfast get-togther about our trip. I just want to comment on how your guidance from the start about what lenses to bring, your comments about camera settings the first few days in the boats, and your leadership every step of the way led to my bringing home just awesome photos. I know I took them, but you had a hand in this and I continue to learn from you. Thank you and bravo!!

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 at to what it had to offer and has become one of my favorite European destinations.
