Our destinations are remote and exciting. But that's not the only reason we're fascinated with them. They’re also some of the most extraordinary places in the world – mysterious, romantic, exotic, and exquisitely beautiful.
We could say they’ve changed so little because they’re timeless to begin with. But the fact is, some of them will, for better and for worse, embrace the 21st century in the near future. That’s why it's so special to us to document and share these fragile, anachronistic ways of life in unimaginable places while we still can. And we'd like to invite you to join us on these exciting adventures.
A century and a half ago photographers would spend years preparing expeditions to our remote destinations. We at Camera Odysseys are pleased to be able to visit them at will. That’s particularly exciting because, even though the trips are easier, our destinations are still much the same as they were when legendary pioneers of travel photography like Francis Firth, Samuel Bourne, Linnaeus Tripe and William Young visited them.
After decades of traveling the world...
...documenting cultures, societies, and individuals, making friends, founding Camera Voyages and taking advantage of extraordinary advances in photography, I decided to up the ante.
Camera Voyages was my first success teaching semi-pro and advanced amateur photographers to expand their comfort zones, and introducing them to my favorite adventures in foreign countries. Camera Odysseys goes a step further. My guides and I are choosing really exciting journeys where we will, for parts of the trips, offer you a chance to embed with real heroes: groups of doctors, aid workers, well-known local artists and performers, as well as professional photographers, and experienced guides. We’ll gain insights into countries that no mere visitor could expect to see, and we’ll be part photographer, part adventurer and part angel, helping to fund medical and aid missions, where we’ll have a lasting positive effect on each country we visit.
My previous trips at Camera Voyages were something to impress your friends on Instagram. Whereas, my Camera Odysseys trips are designed to make sure you’ll never see, or photograph, the world quite the same way again. I’m very excited about our upcoming trips, and I think you will be as well.
