American West Photo Safaris


Photo safaris are actual hands-on, in the field, photography experiences. Photo safaris build practical experience by applying traditional photo skills or building on the skills you already have.  There is no better way to learn photography than to have your composition, exposure, and creative ideas tweaked and improved in the field while shooting with a professional photographer.  The photo safaris bring two dimensional classroom ideas into three dimensional reality, and help you produce uniquely beautiful, personal images.  Register or request more information by e-mailing me at BrentRPaull@hotmail.com or by calling me at 559-909-5208.

The price in blue, like - $375 ($300) - is the discounted (20% off) price for repeat clients.

    There is a 20% discount for repeat clients, shown in color text next to the new client price.
  Transportation for the safaris is required, though you might be able to travel with me, or others, and split gas. 
  Most safaris are limited to 6-8 photographers, though bobcat safaris are limited to 3.
  On regional multiple day safaris we rotate purchasing tanks of gas for those traveling with me. Hotel info available at time of sign-up.
  Get at least 3 photographers together for a Custom Safari - there is a group 10% first time discount.
  These are not physically difficult safaris, and I consider them senior friendly. The summer Black Bear Safaris do require some walking.
  Pre-register for the safaris as numbers are limited, early registration guarantees you a spot.
  Check out my Field Trip Checklist for possible items to bring, some items are seasonal.

  Registering for a Photo Safari requires either a deposit, or full payment, by credit card, PayPal, or via check. Call me at 559-909-5208.
