Tours vs Workshops Difference

Photo Tours

Tours are more location based. Photo tours are typically longer and always to amazing photographic destinations. The focus of a photo tour is photography plain and simple. Tours are about total immersion in a place and our creative process.

Our role during a photo tour is to take care of the travel logistics and all of the little details so you can focus on creating images. But, most importantly we will make sure you are in great locations at the right time to create great images. While Steve will often be shooting during a photo tour his images will always be secondary to your images. His main purpose will be to help you get great images. Steve will always be available to answer questions or help solve a problem.

Instruction is a large part of a photo tour. But to get the most out of a photo tour, participants in most tours will want to have an understanding of basic camera operation.

Photo Workshops

Workshops are definitely more instruction based than a tour. Shorter and more intense, workshops are super-charged with creativity and learning.

Group sizes are kept smaller (usually eight or less) in order to provide for more one on one instruction. The main thrust of one of our workshops will always be to spend quality time out in the field learning. Learning to see, learning new techniques, learning to identify and solve photographic problems, and of course making great images. Steve's role during a workshop will be to help you find and create great images, and to help you see and solve potential problems in the field.

Steve rarely shoots during a workshop and when he does, it will be near the end of the workshop and then to demonstrate how he would solve a problem or handle a particular situation.

The Goal

In the end photography is about seeing, and more importantly, it’s about effectively communicating your vision, and your message, through the images you create. During the course of either a workshop or a photo tour Steve will share with you how he sees, and give you an insight into how you see.

After either experience you will more effectively communicate your vision. Your work will speak more clearly without technical flaws and visual distractions that detract from your chosen message.

Hope to see you soon!
