How We Work


Dead Horse Point, Utah

When it comes to photography workshops and tours…

One size does NOT fit all!

You’re unique. Your photography is personal. You have your own preferences for travel… your ideal methods for learning and practicing photography.

So why squeeze your photographic training into someone else’s program?

Don’t like large groups? Tired of dealing with strangers who are hard to get along with? Fed up with waiting for people who move at a slower pace, or rushing around with not enough time to shoot?

Now you can have a private travel photo workshop just the way you want… anywhere in the world.

Dates… locations… itineraries… costs. All designed just for you.

We offer custom photo tours ranging from budget-conscious to ultra-luxury in any location of your choosing. (Your final tour price is based primarily on the type of accommodation and the number of people in your group.)

We’ll handle all your trip logistics… make all the lodging and dining reservations; provide ground transportation throughout the tour; arrange guides, handlers and translators and much more.

Private photography instruction

Let me, Nat Coalson, be your personal photo mentor! You’ll get professional, one-on-one photographic training from an acclaimed teacher, published author and expert traveler.

Your workshop can be photographically intensive, shooting from sunrise through sunset, or we can work at a more relaxed pace. It’s your choice.

Throughout your private photo workshop, you’ll receive ongoing instruction on

  • camera techniques and settings
  • photographic design and composition
  • image processing with Lightroom, Photoshop, etc.

Most importantly, you’ll get lots of professional critique of your photographs and hands-on instruction for how to significantly improve your work.

Non-photographers welcome

Although the main focus of our time together will be practicing photography, we do a variety of other activities, too. Culinary experiences, wine tasting, cultural discovery and much more. On many occasions we engage the services of expert local guides to provide local perspective, ensuring that you not only make spectacular images, you also learn more about the places we visit.

Everything we do is aimed at providing rich, authentic experiences.

Ensuring a perfect solution

When you first inquire about hiring us for a custom photo tour, the process begins with a straightforward interview process to determine that there’s a good fit for us to work together. We’ll have a phone call or video chat to get acquainted. I’ll ask about your photography goals and travel preferences; you’ll undoubtedly have questions, too. If we agree there’s good alignment of our goals and philosophies, we’ll prepare a comprehensive proposal for you, based on the outcome of our conversations.

Now you can get a private travel photography workshop, completely customized for your tastes, desires and needs!
