Aspens in Autumn 2015 by Fifteen Trees Photography
01 Oct - 9 Oct (9D8N)

Ever wanted to go to beautiful USA but not sure when's the right season or exact locations for fantastic vistas like Horseshoe Bend, Mesa Arch or Maroon Bells?

Don't know what you'll eat, where to go, where to stay in USA?

Don't you hate following tour groups around and they only give you 10 mins to take photos of the scenery?

Do you wish for an experienced photographer/guide who:
  • Is intimately familiar with the transportation, customs and people of the foreign land
  • Is friendly, approachable and experienced
  • Understands the security concerns of travelling with expensive photography gear
  • Brings you to the best photographic spots at the RIGHT TIMING
  • Handle your accommodation and recommend places to eat
  • GUIDES you on landscape photography, exposure, composition, hyper-focal distance and HDR
  • Prepare you for EACH of the locations that you'll be going to BEFORE you get there
  • Take photos like these?
