Magical Light Adventures

We have been working on Magical Light Adventures for more than a month and are excited to share it with you. Our new business will feature photo tours and workshops, initially to our favorite spot in Mexico – Chiapas. We’ll add new tours in 2017 and 2018 in the Yucatan, Guatemala and Cuba. Our dream would be to add tours in Cartegeña, Colombia, the cities and mountains of Ecuador and, of course, the Galapagos.

We love travel and we are passionate about photography and want to share our experiences with a select group of people. We’ll offer three types of trips: tours, workshops and research trips.

Photo workshops will be a more intensive photography experience with field trips and daily classroom sessions featuring critiques and editing. Each workshop will produce a travel book from the week’s photos. Participants will not only learn how to improve their photography skills, but will also learn workflow, book layout and printing techniques.

Photo tours will feature the same hands on photo instruction as a workshop, but will not have the classroom sessions or formal critique sessions. Each participant will receive a photo book containing photos from the group’s photos.

A Photo research tour is offered when we travel to a new place to set up the details for a formal tour or workshop. Group size is limited to four people, will offer photo tips as we work on location, informal photo discussions during dinner or drinks and will be priced lower than a tour or workshop. Our first research trip to Guatemala is already full!

The first opportunity to improve your photography skills is March 2017. You can discover one of the most amazing parts of Mexico – Chiapas. We’ll stay in the colonial town of San Cristóbal de las Casas, visit vibrant indigenous villages, tour stunning Mayan ruins (Palenque, Bonampak and Yaxchilan), and explore the lush mountains and exotic rivers of Chiapas.

Future tours and workshops will be held in the fall of 2017 in Chiapas, with one week featuring Dia de los Muertos, and Semana Santa in Guatemala in March of 2018.
