Lone trees & minimalism, the quintessential Japanese landscape
10-Day Photographic Adventure
Informal small group setting
Bruce likes to run his photography-adventures in a friendly, intimate group setting. This trip has a maximum group size of eight.
Unlike a lot of tours with up to 12 or 16 people on them, running with a smaller number allows everyone to have space in which to photograph. It also means more quality time for Bruce with each participant.
This trip is more of a tour* than Bruce's normal workshops, due to the logistics involved, but you will get a lot of hands on experience from Bruce while at the same time, immerse yourself with plenty of time out in the field on your own.
* Please note that this is not a workshop. It is a photographic tour, focussed on getting you to great locations for the best light.
Required Fitness Level
Easy to Demanding
Most locations are near the car and are easy to get to.
However, we may encounter very deep snow just a few feet away from the roadside and this can be very demanding if you don't have good fitness.
We will have snow shoes to make life easier but you will still find the going requires a lot of exertion. So you need to be mobile and fit enough to handle this.
Temperatures of -17ºC are common as too are snow storm, making the terrain challenging. You should be adventurous and fit enough to handle this.
