G Adventures, the world’s adventure travel leader, teams up with Gary Arndt, a Wanderer in Residence and creator of everything-everywhere.com, to co-host an exclusive photography tour. Departing May 5, 2012 the Great Wide Everywhere trip explores a number of celebrated national parks and natural wonders around the San Francisco and Los Angeles areas, offering travellers a unique opportunity to travel, learn and build their photography skills alongside one of the world’s most influential travel bloggers.
“There’s no doubt that a large part of any travel experience is photography – capturing those picture-perfect moments. I’ve been very fortunate and have had the opportunity to document and explore many regions of our planet,” says Arndt.
“I’m excited to share my love of photography and travel with others on this trip,” adds Arndt. “The tour visits many iconic sites that will serve as the perfect backdrop and subjects for photo shoots.”
Throughout the 15-day adventure ($2299 USD), travellers will receive hands-on training and participate in a number of guided shoots, covering a wide variety of topics and techniques. Daily review sessions will also create opportunities to learn more about the craft of photo editing.
Tour highlights include an evening photo walk of Las Vegas’ infamous strip and visits to the Grand Canyon and Yosemite National Park. In San Francisco, travellers will have the chance to photograph the Golden Gate Bridge and Muir Woods National Monument.
Only 11 spaces are available on the tour.
