Arizona Photography Tour

Nearly every year I wander around Arizona with my camera gear.  It really is one of the most photogenic states in the US.  It’s a landscape photography playground, and there’s such a variety of things to photograph. As a result, I’ve been thinking about bringing an Arizona photography tour to my itinerary. I was just waiting for the right situation and local operator to go with. 

Finally, it’s happening.  

In January, 2020 I’ll be heading to Arizona with Michael Perea Photography on an epic landscape photography tour and workshop!

Where: Trip Starts and Ends in Phoenix, AZ
Price: 3200€    (700€ deposit)

Activity Level: Minimal. Some walks and short hikes.

The Itinerary

As much as I’d love to list my itinerary here, I have to be a bit vague.  I’ve had an issue recently with photographers “stealing” my tour itineraries verbatim. So, forgive me for the brevity of the itinerary for the Arizona trip.

I’m afraid it looks like this trip is now sold out.

If the trip is fully booked and you’d like to join the waiting list, please email me at brendanvanson at gmail dot com.

Single Supplement

The price of the trip is based on double occupancy.  Essentially what that mean is that if you book solo you’ll be matched up with a roommate of the same gender for the trip.  Obviously, if you book as a pair, you’ll share your own private accommodation.

However, if you book solo, you can pay a “single supplement” to have private accommodation alone for the trip.  The price of a single supplement on this trip is €1000.  Of course, if you’re travelling solo, that’s optional.

Sedona – Photo my Michael Perea

Who is Michael Perea?

Michael Perea is a very talented landscape photographer from Phoenix, Arizona.  His imagery and skill is featured on his YouTube channel and his Instagram page.

As a local photographer, Mike has scoured the state for the best photography locations in Arizona.  His local knowledge is next level.

We’ll also be joined by Christine Vogeli who is an incredibly talented photographer as well.  Her work focuses on the details of the planet.  And her eye comes as a beautiful contrast to the “hero” style of both Mike’s and my own landscape photography.
