Ireland with Chuck Haney

A 10-day all-inclusive photo tour of Ireland. City Streets of Dublin, Giant’s Causeway, The Dark Hedges, Fanad Lighthouse, Cliffs of Moher, The Dingle Peninsula and Killarney National Park are highlights of the trip. 16-passenger van, only 8 participants.

Death Valley NP with Chuck Haney

Death Valley is truly a landscape photographer’s dream location with it’s beautiful skies, incredible textures and intense colors. We will be visiting the park when the temperatures are still pleasant and hopefully wildflowers will be blooming. There are host of great locations in which to shoot including the Mesquite Sand Dunes, the salt pan flats, Zabriskie Point. We’ll be up early and stay out late to catch the golden light that transforms the features into works of art that we will capture with our digital cameras. With our lodging right next to the Mesquite Sand Dunes and close to a ghost town, we will also go out several nights for star photography. A great class to learn or hone my many skills.

Banff and Ice Bubbles in Winter with Chuck Haney

The beauty of the majestic Canadian Rockies cannot be understated. The mountains are bigger and more dramatic than even their American counterparts. Winter snows cloaking the landscape in a clean slate brings a whole new dimension to winter photography.

We will begin in the resort town of Banff, only a 90-minute drive from the Calgary airport. Classic Canadian Rocky scenes like Vermillion Lake, the Bow River with Castle Mountain and intimate views into Johnston Canyon will give us plenty to shoot. Then, we will travel several hours north to experience the famed methane ice bubbles under the translucent ice of Abraham Lake. Walking on and exploring the lake is a truly unique experience and should not be missed. There are also many other great photo ops near the our base at the Aurum Lodge with the beautiful Cline River Canyon, reflecting pools and the North Saskatchewan River Crossing.

Bring your ice crampons for walking on the ice, warm clothing and adventurous attitude and you will be rewarded with a memorable experience.
