A Better Photo Tour!

About Our Tours

The goals of photography and travel are one in the same – to explore the world and experience it with a fresh set of eyes. When you travel with Big Sun Photography Tours you travel in the company of an experienced photography guide, following routes that have been designed exclusively for photographers. Our expeditions are not so much technical workshops but exciting travel opportunities designed to put your photographic skills to use.  Groups are kept small, with a maximum of eight participants, to insure freedom for individual photographers to explore and capture images comfortably.

Your guide, Gene Tewksbury, will mentor your travel photography skills throughout the expedition, showing you techniques (both technical and social) for obtaining amazing cultural photos. 

Professional Photography Instruction

Your photography instructor is available for personal photography instruction throughout the entire tour.  Many clients find that they not only learn new skills but overcome obstacles that have held them back for many years.

At each location your guide will help you with both technical skills and composition to produce the best images possible.

Think of our travel tours as a way to experience the fascinating culture of Southeast Asia while attending daily photography training at the same time.  Two birds with one stone as they say.

Words From Our Clients:

“Tess and I just want to thank you for the great job you did showing us the less traveled areas of Costa Rica. We are very happy of discovering your travel photography tour service. Your experience traveling in this country allowed us to see so much more than we expected. Our expedition up to the waterfalls in the jungle of Montezuma was extraordinary. I don’t know how you found those. Swimming in the waterhole at the bottom of the falls, not a person in sight for hours and the sound of monkeys howling overhead. I got such amazing photographs of the wildlife. Especially the birds. It was my favorite part (though climbing down those tree roots to the pool was scary, but made for a great story).”

“I think Tess like the snorkel trip to the island reef and the big pig roast BBQ on the beach. We felt very safe and knew we made the right decision when you got our bags back even after the bus left without us on the ferry trip. I just knew our stuff was gone and we were stuck, but you chased our bags on a bus you waived down and got the driver to call ahead to stop the first bus. That was great. We think you are a good travel guide. You also taught me a lot about how to get good photographs. I am a much better photographer than before the trip.”

“We will tell our friends about you, maybe you will get more work from them.”

“Wow! This was the most fun I’ve ever had. I was so worried about traveling to another country, especially one where I did not know the language or culture. I was only days away from booking an expensive week at some beach resort where I probably would have done nothing but eat and drink in a lawn chair. Then I found your photography tours (accidental while looking for less interesting tours). After reading some I said “that’s the kind of adventure I want to have”. Let me tell you, that you did not disappoint.”

“You took us places I NEVER would have tried to go on my own. Like taking us over the border into Panama just so we could find some good scuba diving at Boccas del Torra for some underwater photography (too bad the water had been turned up by that storm – oh well it was still so much fun). And spending time on Bastemenous island. I didn’t know that places like that existed. No roads, no cars, no tvs, just a single walking path and lots of jungle. I didn’t even know people lived like that, and yet you still found us such a wondrous place to stay with that great German couple’s guest house. I could see fish through the floor of my hammock room. Amazing! I really broke free from my comfort zone there.I still can’t believe how much I did in only 10 days.”

“I will never forget the experience and it was worth every penny and I have amazing photos to cherish for the rest of my life. Honestly our backpacking saved so much money compared to the resort I was going to go to, that your expenses were nearly covered by the difference. How cool is that?”
