Swamp Landscape Photo Workshop


Ideal for any nature lover, this swamp and wildlife tour doubles as a photography workshop. Your guide, an experienced nature photographer, will help you capture some of the most beautiful landscapes and enticing wildlife in the region.

Most photography workshops are a multi-day experience that are costly and and locked into set dates years in advance. Our workshops are setup for private groups and can be booked on a daily basis. We have the flexibility to run sunrise and sunset trips all year long. If you are a nature photographer in New Orleans and want to get out into the swamps but don’t want to be locked into a set workshop schedule this is the trip for you.

What to Expect

The cypress swamps of Louisiana are beautifully scenic but can be difficult to photograph by car or from foot. You need a boat to access most of the photogenic areas and an experienced guide to get you there. We use high quality kayaks and canoes to get you into some of the most backwater areas of the swamp that most boats cannot access. We offer transportation to and from your hotel in the city if needed. We can run trips for either sunrise or sunset. Trips run for 4-5hrs in the field and another 1hr of transportation and load out before and after the session.

Our guides can help with camera settings and composition if needed but it is not a focal point of the trip. Our main goal is to get you into the most scenic areas and accommodate you as you setup the shots you are after. If you have concepts for different images it is best to reach out to us before your trip to discuss your ideas. Different times of the year allow for accessing different areas and can determine how different shots can be taken.
