My philosophy in leading photo tours is simple. The pictures are paramount. The people who travel with me know they will take the best pictures of their lives. My trips are not relaxing, however. We usually get up early and often stay out late, depending on the light. We deal with heat, cold, dust, and sometimes long drives on bad roads, but it’s all to take great photographs.
Browse my photo tours and workshops for 2018 to 2020. If you have any questions about anything -- accommodations, inoculations, health, safety concerns, what photo gear to bring, Internet availability, or anything else0 -- Email me. It would be a pleasure to have you on one of the photo tours or workshops, and I will do my best to make sure you have a wonderful experience. With 42 years of experience in photography and leading photo tours, I will help you take the best pictures ever.
If you would like to join Jim on any of the tours (he leads all the tours himself), click on the link 'Register' on any of the description pages for the photo tour of interest to you. This takes you to an online form that gets emailed to him. He will then give you deposit instructions, and you'll get a written emailed acknowledgment when your check arrives. Approximately four months prior to departure, you will receive a color eBooklet with all the information you need for the tour including a list of recommended camera equipment, weather and clothing issues, time and place for meeting, the hotels' contact information, a list of participants, baggage weight limitations, etc.
