advice from a National

Geographic photographer.

This is the beauty of photography trips and workshops with

National Geographic: you have real-time access to some of the

world’s best photographers in the classroom or in the field.

Get focused during a weekend or weeklong photography workshop

tips and techniques as you frame wildlife in the Galápagos on a

photo expedition, or hike Tuscany’s hills on a photo adventure.

Or take part in one of our one-day photo seminars, held in cities

throughout the U.S. All of our photography programs are designed

for amateurs and photo enthusiasts who seek to develop their

artistic vision and digital photography skills.

hand. Now there are more ways than ever for you to hone your

“This was truly an awesome experience that I would

highly recommend to anyone seeking to improve

their skills…what a rare privilege it was to work

with a master like Jay Dickman. Learning from him

is like taking a sip from a fire hose!”
