What type of camera equipment is required?
Nathan, nothing, nada. Some people enjoy Aaron’s Photo Tours™ with binoculars, spotting scopes, and even their bare eyes. We are always happy to email photographs taken along the way to preserve memories for those without cameras. Nice cameras are inexpensive now days and I can recommend several options if you want to buy one before the trip. B&H Photo is a good place to learn more about camera equipment.
Do you recommend a camera/lens rental company?
Take a look at one of these rental companies:
Do you offer a Senior discount?
Yes, just ask! Aaron’s Photo Tours™ are designed for the best humans on the planet…seniors. Just make sure to communicate with us upfront so we can make sure you are as comfortable as possible throughout your trip.
What type of vehicle will we be in?
For tours sizes 3 and less we will drive in a luxury SUV.
For larger trips we will be in a spacious tour van or Suburban.
Can you accommodate my diet?
Yes. Please communicate dietary needs in advance. Our custom is to stop at restaurants and grocery stores that offer rich, whole, and healthy foods. However, some small towns have limited options so dietary needs need to be planned for in advance.
What if the weather is bad?
It is our planets diverse and constantly changing weather systems that give our photographs variety and keep our images unique and different. There are many products for sale that protect our equipment from the elements. We make every effort to photograph in all weather systems, rain or shine, sleet or snow. On multi day trips participation is always voluntary on bad weather days. In some cases this means shooting from our vehicle and in others under an umbrella. In unusual conditions, say in the arctic or in poring down rain, we sometimes opt to focus on the the processing side of photography from a coffee shop or the comfort of our hotels making use of every moment of the tour or workshop.
