Workshops Created for Success!
We have designed our trips to have small groups of people. This provides us plenty of time to work with each and every one of you. While in the field, you will have ample one on one time with an instructor. Our team members are very welcoming and knowledgeable so do not hesitate to ask any questions you may have.
Workshops Designed for You
Schedules for the field workshops will fluctuate per trip, even per day, based on many factors from weather to Xplorer's choices. Our team will have a planned routing for when and what to explore. We will generally follow that guideline, however it may be amended to find the best possible shots. Some days will have an early wake up call for sunrise shoots; Likewise there will be evening shoots so we don't miss out on the beautiful Golden Hour pictures. Depending on location, you can also plan for a session late at night to hopefully capture the Milky Way or even an Aurora.
The field workshops will mainly have the guides floating between each Xplorer for one on one training. This process allows the guides to assist each one of you based on your skill level to make sure you capture your shots perfectly. Our courses are designed for all shooting experience levels from novice to advanced so don't feel like you'll be left behind if you are unfamiliar with a camera's operation!
Classes Perfect for You
Every day we will have a minimum of one workshop session, generally in the morning. We choose this time of day so we can cover all items which the group should be focusing on while in the field. Each course will add new element to your pictures (i.e. day 1 may be on composition, day 2 lighting, day 3 adding drama to the shot, etc etc). Our courses are designed for all shooting experience levels from novice to advanced. Don't feel like you'll be left behind if you are unfamiliar with a camera's operation! After our instructional period (generally 15-30 minutes) we will then work on live image editing allowing you to see our workflow in order to tie in all the skills in post production. You will be able to follow along, ask questions, learn new techniques and methods in Photoshop/Lightroom using pictures from the previous day! We do recommend bringing your laptop if you have one in order to participate and follow along.
These guides are amazing!

“Everything was planned perfectly by our guides. The lodging, food, and timeframes between locations were all set up perfectly. I would recommend this guide company to anyone looking for a photography workshop combined with an amazing vacation.”
