If you love to travel and want to take your photography skills to the next level, you will love our Photography Workshops and Classes.
Come learn and engage with other like minded photographers in our small group workshops or elect for a private photography workshop.
We have been offering our landscape photography workshops since 2006,
led by experienced professional photographers and guides.
In a private workshop, Holly and Mark focus on techniques to really accelerate your ability to create and capture stunning images. I have always been amazed at both my images and my development as a photographer at the end of a private workshop.
Mark and Holly were kind, inviting, and knowledgeable hosts with an indefatigable desire to share their love of the land and well-developed appreciation for the photographic medium with me in developing my own artistic vision. My short time with them in Yosemite proved to be the most relaxing and fulfilling vacation I’ve had in many, many years.
I went to one of Mark and Holly’s Yosemite workshops and I can tell you they know exactly where to get the good shots. They are very experienced in leading photography groups, and the groups are small enough that you can get individual attention with your photography should you need or want it. I enjoyed my trip with them and would do it again.
Jansen Photo Expeditions attracts high-quality individuals, which makes a huge difference when you’re traveling in a small group. Mark and Holly have been to Iceland several times and work exclusively with an Icelandic guide who knows the terrain and the conditions. As a team they work with a high level of integrity to keep us safe and show us how to capture the best of this incredibly beautiful country. It was an amazing trip and I want to go back!
