A passionate pairing of operational & educational expertise

It all started with photograph of a spectacular multi-colored mountain range in Northwest Argentina called Serranía de Hornocal. As a lover of places, I just had to go there and meet Ossian Lindholm, the photographer who had taken this stunning shot. This surreal mountain also sparked a dream to share my long-time passion for exploration, teaching, travel and photography in way I knew best—through the creation of transformational travel programs

Ossian not only shares this dream but he brought his own unique vision and photography workshop teaching expertise to help launch Travel Vision Journeys–educational learning explorations that immerse, inspire and connect travelers with the worlds’ most beautiful places through the transformational magic of the photographic experience.

The combination of my 25 years running an award winning active travel company and Ossian’s 40 years of photography and teaching experience has resulted in a winning recipe for travel photography workshops that have been recognized by National Geographic Travel, Forbes Magazine, The New York Times, The San Francisco Tribune, the Modern Traveler and many more.

Travel Vision Journeys are active photo adventures for the culturally curious that immerse, inspire and connect travelers with the world’s most photogenic places. On these exclusive active learning tours led by our expert photographers, you’ll improve and expand your photography skills while you learn about the places and people that you see.

An important distinction of our photo journeys is a “focus” on mindful photography. On every photo tour you’ll increase your visual awareness and learn to intuitively use the eye of the camera to connect, compose and enhance your mindfulness and personal vision. In the spirit of mindful travel, you’ll focus on capturing the essence of moments and places. By embracing serendipity, you’ll savor the fine art of wandering and connect intimately with your natural surroundings. You’ll return home invigorated, inspired and ready to share your visual story with the world.

Unlike any other type of active or educational travel, a photo tour allows us a slow, deep dive into the spirit of a place. As we stroll a windy trail or glide down a river, our tours have a special “focus” on mindful photography. With over 25 year of experience developing educational experiences all over the world, we are dedicated to delivering the highest quality active photo journeys in the world.

Photo workshops expand our sensory experience of a place like no other kind of travel. Our travel photography workshops do not pack in all the sites, instead we move more slowly, seeing less things but with greater intimacy and intensity; we call it Mindful Photography. Finally, each tour has partnered with local operators who care and give back to the places we visit through their eco-friendly practices and support of local conservation projects

We guarantee that on our Travel Vision photography workshop adventures you’ll be invigorated as we experience special places with new eyes and with all your senses fully tuned in and awake.
