Ultimate flexibility

"Of course we liked the ability to access a professional who knew the camera equipment extremely well, and we also liked having someone who was familiar with the location we had chosen, including all the best places to shoot.

What we also loved was Paul himself - his personality, his openness, his significant knowledge about photography, and his familiarity with such a variety of camera systems. But most importantly, we enjoyed Paul’s willingness to exchange his expertise and the fact that he was a great teacher."

Travel worry-free

Paul's been traveling the world for 25 years, carrying worldwide insurances for commercial photography and public liability - along with approvals to operate in each location.

No hidden costs.

Luxury travel, award-winning food, top rated accommodation, even the incidentals: It's all included in the price of your workshop - no hidden costs and no unwanted surprises.

You're the all-star.

Our goal is to make you an expert (not just invite you along to watch the expert). Get unrestricted access to Paul as you learn how to capture the perfect scene & do great things in post-production.

Here's how it works:

1

Choose a Workshop

Choose from our favorite locations, or create your own destination.

Once you decide where you want to go, we'll schedule a date that works for both of our schedules.

2

Build Your Itinerary

Whether it’s for a solo trip, as a couple, or a group of friends, we’ll work together to build your itinerary and find the perfect balance of locations, seasons and adventures.

3

Secure Your Spot

After your itinerary is set, we'll create a detailed quotation for the entire workshop (with no hidden extras). When you're ready to book the trip, we secure your workshop with a deposit.

4

Check Your Gear

You'll have access to the best camera equipment, but if you'd like to bring your own gear, be sure to review the full list of suggested equipment here.
