2016 Photo Tours in Yosemite High Country and/or White Mountains

This year I’m planning a number of outings to the Eastern Sierra and Yosemite high country and White Mountains and I like to offer what I call photo tours at those times that coincided with my outings (since it’s a 600-1000 mile round trip for me).

Photo tours are personalized tours with me as your guide, intended to cater specifically to your interests (limited to three participants, but 1:1 is typical, sometimes couples). We shoot in peace and quiet, and enjoy the best of the area. And while I have a specific itinerary in mind, our schedule is flexible, so lucky weather conditions can be utilized as they arise. See the photo tours page for general info.

Tentative dates for 2016; often I have some wiggle room on start/end dates. Typical engagements are 2 to 4 days.

  • The June 1-4 and June 6-8 range.
  • June 20-30 range
  • Mid to late July (exact dates flexible, TBD)
  • Mid August (exact dates flexible, TBD)
  • Late September/early October.
  • Custom time by arrangement.


Cost is $850 per day. You are responsible for your lodging, transportation, food. I can advise on those things as well as clothing, gear, fitness, etc. Days are typically pre-dawn to post-dusk, but it’s all up to you.
