Aaron has a great interest and knowledge of photography and photography equipment. This combined with his knowledge of various sites in North and Central America – plus Africa – should place him on your short list of workshop leaders when deciding on future photography adventures. – Bill M (2016 Costa Rica Participant)

This was my fourth photo tour with Aaron and I couldn’t have been more happy with the experience.  As a woman traveling alone Aaron has always made it a priority for me to feel safe at all times.  He not only provides great photography instruction but also makes sure the accommodations and locations are first rate.  Costa Rica provided many photographic challenges due to the rain forest conditions and low light. Aaron was able to help me achieve some of my best images in difficult shooting scenarios.  I’m looking forward to my next trip with Aaron to Kenya in October! – Jean H – Naples, FL (2015 Costa Rica Participant)
