Photography Workshops


A workshop has a much more structured itinerary that is more about learning techniques and fundamentals than about the location, although the location can be critical to creating the right environment for what the workshop strives to teach. A workshop includes lecture and classroom time, field demonstrations, group location shoots, student assignments and critique sessions. Currently, Active Photo Tours isn’t offering any photo workshops.

A tour is location specific and is primarily about getting the best images possible by taking participants to locations at the best times and lighting. On location, we offer advise on how to best capture the scene(s) we are at. A photo tour usually starts with a 2-3 hour orientation on logistics and how to best capture the subject matter that we will see on the tour. Our focus is to motivate and facilitate creative and technical growth. Time and energy permitting, we try to have at least one constructive critique session.
