Photography Instructor and Guide

Gene Tewksbury

Lead Guide


Gene Tewksbury is a Colorado based professional photographer who has been leading photo tours and workshops throughout The American West and SE ASIA since 2009.

Gene is unique amongst photography guides.  Most photographers have a career and then later become involved with workshops or tours. Gene entered photography as a career specifically to run photography tours.  Photo tours are where his photography career started and they continues to be his main focus. 

With hundreds of tours under his belt Gene has built up significant experience as a photography guide, leading not only to quality instruction but also an improved overall experience on your vacation adventure. 

A tour with Gene is never a “tour bus / follow the flag” affair.
