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:

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.

Kathy is the best. So patient and kind with beginners, as well as helping those with lots of experience at the same time. Every night she helped with processing photos and explaining different programs. She is just a wonderful intructor. And Romania was a wonderful trip!! woth every penny!

Hi Jacque

Just to let you know I thoroughly enjoyed the trip with Ron in Morocco.  Thank you so much for a great organization and a wonderful experience!

One of my favorite places on our trip was our overnight to Miyajima Island. For many reasons, but one of the main points was it was our first introduction to the iconic Japanese Maples in their full color. And what a sight it was. Local guide was terrific, enjoyed her knowledge and sense of humor. She did her upmost to make sure we saw Japan and its culture.

Karen, thank you for everything.  As I have said before, you are the most generous photographer I have met with your dedication and desire to share information.

It’s always enlightening and enjoyable listening to you and discussing things. The vast majority of time, after attending a workshop (which I rarely do anymore), l leave feeling discouraged and overwhelmed. However, there is something about your approach that, following time spent w/you, I go away encouraged and motivated. It’s a bonus to get applicable business contact info, and some written reference material, but it’s the feeling of, “hmmm, I can do this...”, that makes all the difference. And for that, I thank -you. Glenn, freelance photographer


This was a wonderful trip to Ireland. Loved the different locations - city and countryside - that we encountered along the way from Dublin to Dingle. Our local guide was amazing. His knowledge of Irish history and its topography knows no bounds. Our photography guide, Nancy Ori, and Strabo's owner, Jacque Steedle, round out this amazing trip which made the photography tour possible.

Fantastic, simply fantastic. Having a knowledgeable tour guide that knew the best places to photograph and eat along with a driver that seamlessly navigated the irish roads are the primary reasons for taking this type of tour. Ron, however, went beyond this; he was able to include a lot of Irish history, culture and spirituality along with his unique presentations on the art of photography. Would like to do another tour with Ron.

This trip was more than i expected, with some really nice experiences. The breakfast visit with organiz farmer and the spontaneous encounters with gypsies working their fields were equal highlights for me. Local guide was very helful in allowing us to stop when we saw something we wanted to shoot, and facilitated our interactions with local people. The lodges were amazing and in perfect locations. This was my second trip with Strabo and locations are well chosen.


K Bates

Many highlights to the tour. My favorite parts were probably the cities in Transylvania. Local guides showed us a couple of cool spots to shoot and was able to get locals to pose for us. Accommodations were great and some good - but all great for photogprahy opportunities.
