2-Hour DTLA Photo Tour

($50/person) (Max. 4 people)


Take photos at the best spots in

Downtown Los Angeles

On this 2-hour walk downtown, we'll meet at City Hall and head up to the observation deck for an incredible view of downtown and the surrounding areas.


For the next hour-and-a-half or so, we'll walk through the historic Broadway Theatre District and see some of the city's best architecture.


You'll learn a bit about the history of the places we go, and how to best shoot them. Bring your camera (of course), some water and a snack.

2-Day Los Angeles Workshop

($750/person) (Max. 4 people)

Get the real L.A. experience

Whether you want to hike behind the Hollywood Sign, get churros on the Santa Monica Pier or see famous filming locations, this 2-day workshop has you covered. 


Like the other tours and workshops I offer, it's all about whatever you and your group want to see and do.

All of my workshops are sure to give you a unique view of the places we go... and you'll walk away with priceless memories and photo prints mailed to you after the trip!

2-Day Joshua Tree Workshop

($1,250/person) (Max. 4 people)

See the California desert park

in a whole new light

Camp under the stars and see the Joshua Tree National Park that most people never get to.


The park is small enough where two days doesn't feel rushed, and we'll be able to hike numerous trails, on and off the beaten path - whichever you prefer!

For certain, some artsy portraits of you with a Joshua Tree at night... a must-do!

2-Day Grand Canyon Workshop

($1,500/person) (Max. 4 people)

Experience the grandest of the Grand Canyon

Simply put, the Grand Canyon is my favorite place in the world. I've done extensive hiking into the gorge and stopped by its best viewpoints on the North and South rims numerous times.

There are so many options here for every type of person / photographer / hiker / backpacker / you name it!

Your grandest trip ever awaits!


2-Day Channel Islands Workshop ($1,750/person) (Max. 4 people)

Discover what Southern California looked like hundreds of years ago

The Channel Islands are not too far off the California coast, yet they seem a lifetime away. Whichever of the islands we go to, expect to be transported back in time.

Like my other workshops, this one is also for nearly all skill levels (both photography-wise and physical fitness wise). We can do day-hiking on Anacapa Island or make the journey out to San Miguel Island, or any other trip you want to take on!


All workshops include camping fees and transportation (between Los Angeles and the destination). Upgrades like hotels, cabins and the like may be available at an extra cost. Other experiences can be arranged as well (mule trip into the Grand Canyon, etc.)

From the photography side of things, I work with those of all skill levels to achieve the best results from each trip.

No matter what, I'll take at least 50 digital photos for your personal use, plus print up your favorite five images.
