Photo adventure tours

What is a Photo Adventure Tour?

Your host will be Greg Johnson, star of Tornado Hunters, professional photographer and camera instructor. Photo Adventure Tours are small group trips to some really great destinations. You will have the chance to spend a week asking questions, getting feedback on photos and turning your vacation into a valuable learning experience.

Destinations

Due to the global travel disruptions caused by the Covid-19 virus we have been forced to suspend our small group tours as of March 13 2020. We are not currently taking bookings for tours. We do plan on starting tours again when the health authorities feel that the timing is right. Therefore, if you are interested in a destination, please let Tracy know by emailing tracy@tornadohunter.ca and you will be notified as the situation changes. Stay safe.

Benefits of small group tours

Instruction

When you are trying to get the most from your camera, having a pro close by to be your guide is invaluable.

Flexibility

Great photo opportunities are hard to find. With a small group we can change plans or stay longer or shorter at one spot.

Friendship

Every tour we have hosted seems like a opportunity for new friendships in a quiet and familiar setting.

Thanks, I learned how to operate my camera! So much information shared by Greg. I was on info overload after the 1st day, but on the 2nd day everything made sense. Greg you are a great teacher, your course simplified my camera.

I attended Greg's 1st Photo Excursion trip to the Yukon in 2016 and then attended his Intermediate Workshop in 2018. I have never had so much fun learning how to be a better photographer. I traveled from Ont to take the workshop and I learned more in those 2 days than any of the previous courses I have taken. I will keep trying to step outside of my comfort zone and have fun doing it!

I was one of the many of amateur photographers who probably believed that the way cameras are evolving, its hard not to take a bad picture, yet not all my pictures were clear or it wouldn't allow me to take a photo because my settings wouldn't allow it. Gregs course simplified my camera to make troubleshooting easier. Greg's course took the fear out of the camera and made it fun shooting with others who had similar fears/problems. Thanks Greg!
