A note from Tom ~

We welcome enthusiastic photographers of all skill levels on our tours. While our emphasis is on the creative aspects of photography, we are happy to help you with any technical-artistic concerns that you may have. We typically offer six to eight short instructional programs as well as portfolio reviews on request. What we really enjoy is helping you one-on-one in the field, giving you as much, or as little, instruction as you need. We believe that our workshops should be enjoyable educational experiences that not only emphasize photography, but also allow the time and opportunity to learn about the history, art, and culture of each location. We enjoy having participants who work in mediums besides photography, non-participating partners, and others who can enjoy spending extended periods of time in a single location. We are delighted when these ‘non-photographers’ who intended to take a few point and shoot pictures discover the wonderful world of photography while they are on one of our journeys. While we have specific itineraries, we allow time for unscheduled stops for opportunities we find along the way.

We have been leading workshops and fieldtrips for over fifteen years. Pat and I have published several books on photography including our ever-popular instructional book, Notes from the Field, now in its sixth printing. Pat has recently produced a nature video DVD with hammer dulcimer musician Dan Landrum entitled Visions of Nature. We welcome photographers using both film and digital cameras, as well as video.

This was a great trip!!! Iceland is a very beautiful country and there were never ending opportunities to photograph the landscape. The food and lodging were good, and your local guide was the best I have ever seen in my life. He knew exactly where to go, when to go, and how to photograph his beautiful country. The Cory's were very helpful through out the trip. In short it was a great trip. Thank you.

There were many wonderful photo opportunities, but (Ireland tour) Olcan’s personality, including his music added a particularly unique and memorable dimension.

Tom’s lectures and suggestions were considerably better than I experienced on two workshops with others. Pat was also very helpful and friendly.

One of the best trips we've ever taken!

Haukur realy knows the territory, he took us to great sites. he showed us the beauty that is 'his' Iceland. Very enthusiastic and involved.

Tom and Pat had coaching in the field, including photo reviews on camera, much preferable to formal instruction. Friendly comments and observations. I learned alot & now look at all photo's and opportunities differently. We give them all a 10!

I have had the opportunity to travel on many photo workshops with Tom and Pat both in the continental US and abroad. On these trips, I have always had what I call the typical “fantastic Cory experience”. Tom and Pat make all of the participants feel very welcome, provide excellent educational sessions and in field experiences that far exceed any other photo trips I have attended. The itineraries are well planned and executed so that the photographic experience is maximized for the participants. I appreciate that they are both always available to answer questions and offer suggestions about composition and exposure. I have fond memories of all of the trips I have taken with the Tom and Pat.

I have traveled extensively with Tom and Pat and am looking forward to many more trips with them. They are always ready to help you out if you need assistance or leave you alone if you prefer. The help can be technical or having Tom show you a new way to see things and become more creative in your work. Besides that they take you to some awesome places to shoot and stay with you during that time.

Tom and Pat were a great help having many suggestions on photography and composition. My camera broke on the second day and Tom loaned me his film camera to use for the remainder of the trip.
