Our Photography Expeditions are comprised of photographers interested in exploring the West with their cameras. We visit photography rich destinations, share experiences, and images. But most of all it is about enjoying the camaraderie of being with other creative artists in the field.

Our expeditions are essentially gatherings at various destinations to make photographs. It may be a simple one day localized excursion or a full week of extensive photography. Even on the longer expeditions you may join us for a single day or the entire trip. Whatever works for you. During the longer trips we will be posting our schedule including daily revisions so you can always find us.
While there is no formal training activities on an expedition there is still plenty of opportunities to learn from each other. More importantly, being with other photographers and sharing our experiences is simply more rewarding and fun!
Joining an expedition is easy and FREE
- All skill and experience levels are welcome
- All cameras are welcome from smartphones to DSLRs to view cameras and everything in between
- Non-photographer spouses are always welcome
- Participation is FREE although you are responsible for your own travel expenses and any entry fees such as parks, etc.
Sound good to you? If so, simply sign-up for our mail list below. That's all there is to it. Again, it is totally free.
We look forward to your participation!

► Joshua Tree: Tuesday, March 12 - Sunday, March 17, 2019
Joshua Tree National Park is located between the Mojave Desert and Sonoran Desert in Southern California about an hour east of Palm Springs. The twisted Joshua Trees, towering rock formations (some as tall as 20 story buildings), dramatic geology, and incredible star studded night skies have long been a favorite of photographers and other visitors from all over the world. It is now one of our favorites too. In addition to daytime photography we plan to photograph at sunset and at least one evening by moonlight. Home-base for this trip will be in Twentynine Palms making it easy to visit Joshua Tree and other areas such as Indian Canyons (Palm Springs), Kelso Depot, and Kelso Dunes.
