Since 1980, we have traveled to more than 100 counties (and most of our National Parks) leading photo workshops and photo tours - for groups and individuals. If you don’t like crowds and want to learn (and have fun) on an individual basis - you have come to the right place. We set up everything so all you need to do is show up. Shoot me an email for information.

This is not a traditional Rick Sammon photo workshop. Rather, I am a guest lecturer on the ship. I also help everyone out with their photo and photo processing.

We can not guarantee that we’ll see polar bears (one of my favorite subjects), but we will try our hardest.
