You have options when searching for the perfect adventure photography tour.
Run a simple internet search for “landscape and/or wildlife photography tours” and you’ll certainly be provided a lengthy list of tour companies willing and able to book you on a tour.
We at Backcountry Journeys recognize this, and while we can’t speak for the ‘other guys’ – surely they are all doing fine work – we are convinced that our photo tour experiences are simply flat out better.
We start by providing second-to-none photographic opportunities designed to get you into interesting and engaging locations.
Our trips have all been designed with meticulous care and research. Years of experience accounts for a wealth of knowledge pertaining to locations, wildlife habits (that can change depending on a variety of things that only experience can provide insight upon), and timing for the best light -which is essential for photography, as we all know. The result of this careful consideration are trips where you’ll be sure to achieve a perfect blend of the shots you know you want, and some creative and maybe lesser known vantage points as well.
But it isn’t enough to simply get you to the spots. In our opinion, there is much more to a great photo tour adventure. So, our skilled photo guides add top-notch instruction so that you can develop your skills. Our trips are intended for all skill levels, so whether you’re a seasoned photographer or just starting out you’ll feel comfortable on any of our tours.
In order to provide this level of personal attention to each of our guests we limit tours to small groups. Doing it this way also allows for some flexibility with each days’ plan, making it more easy to adjust to conditions as well as folks’ desires.
It’s just not enough to simply see and photograph a place. Our philosophy is that thoughtful information on cultural and natural history goes a long way in providing a unique connection to the amazing locations we visit. Many of our tours visit our National Parks, which are the crown jewels of our country’s heritage and landscape. Our guides come equipped with a wealth of knowledge of the area we are visiting.
Imagine showing off your images to your friends and family back home, and being able to sprinkle in your own new knowledge of the landscape, or critter in the image, in order to add to your slideshow (trust us, your friends and family will appreciate it!).
The final ingredient is working diligently and constantly towards providing you a seamless travel experience. Backcountry Journeys trips include lodging, ground transportation, and most meals (while on the tour), as well as National Park entrance fees, expert guides, and other easily missed details essential to a successful trip. This means that once you are with us, all you have to worry about is enjoying your experience which we view as much more than just shooting photographs. We hope that our tours offer remarkable memories of time spent with nature, yourselves, and with the camaraderie of others. Things like cozy accommodations with great meals, good conversation and and easy registration process from start to finish go a long way towards simplifying things for you.
Our tours are meant to be a chance to make amazing images, yet also lasting friendships and memorable vacations, too!
We encourage you to check out our itineraries and register for a tour so that you too can find out for yourselves! Our promise to you is that we’ll simply work harder to provide you with more of what you want: second-to-none photographic opportunities, top notch instruction and development with your camera, a unique connection to the cultural and natural history of the amazing locations you visit, and a seamless travel experience alongside your small group of fellow travelers and photography enthusiasts.
