Welcome to your tailor-made photography expedition.

Learn how to capture and explore the incredible landscapes and seascapes of Southern California

This is a trip that will ensure you leave with memory cards full to the brim of amazing sights and adventures.

With golden beaches, roaring seas and sunset views that last forever, you could be forgiven for thinking a workshop in Southern California was all about the coast - on this trip, however, we'll be exploring a lot further than just those scenes.

Surrounded by cityscape opportunities and stunning National Parks, we'll be capturing iconic views from all across the southern state, getting a flavour of what the entire landscape has to offer.

Staying in luxury accommodation up-close to our shoot locations, we'll incorporate landscape, panoramic, long exposure and night photography into your custom workshop itinerary, delivering a portfolio of your own stunning images that will be truly unique and special to you.

Stunning locations. Amazing experiences. Down-to-earth instruction.

You can have all of it (and more) when you schedule your workshop. Take a look at the highlights.

Expert Guidance

Get all your questions answered about composition, settings, post-production editing & more. Because Paul rarely shoots while leading workshops, you can be sure you'll gain an expansive body of work that's all your own.

Customised Itinerary

Each workshop gets planned accoding to your exact needs and preferences. With Paul, everything is done one-to-one and handled in the most bespoke way. This is your investment, so we're here to help you get the most out of it.

What's not included?

When your trip is all-inclusive, this list isn't long.

Minus your passports, visas and clean underwear, you won't need to bring much more.

Of course, you might want to bring a wide array of clothing (weather can vary from hot, cold, dry and rainy) plus any medications you require - and if you want to bring your own camera to shoot with, check out our recommended list of equipment here.

Paul carries worldwide insurances for commercial photography as well as public liability, but you should always ensure you have your own travel policy in case of cancellation, medical emergencies or any other unexpected situation occurring. It's also a great thing to consider equipment insurance if you don't already hold it.
