American West Photography Safaris


Photo safaris are actual hands-on, in the field, photography experiences. Photo safaris build practical experience by applying traditional photo skills or building on the skills you already have.  There is no better way to learn photography than to have your composition, exposure, and creative ideas tweaked and improved in the field while shooting with a professional photographer.  The photo safaris bring two dimensional classroom ideas into three dimensional reality, and help you produce uniquely beautiful, personal images.  Register or request more information by e-mailing me at brentrpaull@hotmail.com or by calling me at 559-909-5208.

The price in color, like - $250 ($200) - is the discounted price for repeat clients.

The Photo Walks go from 9am to Noon.  They are for beginners and new photographers.  The cost is $90.
■  The half day Agriculture Safaris begin at 7am (sometimes 7:30am) and run through 12:00.  The cost is $90.

■  Transportation for the safaris is required, though you might be able to travel with me, or others, and split gas. 
■  I will arrange car-pooling and hotel room splits as clients sign-up. 
■  Most safaris are limited to 7 photographers, though bobcat safaris are limited to 3.
