There are many options for great photo tours and workshops in Mexico. The reason we offer the Chiapas Photo Tour is simple. We think Chiapas is one of the most interesting places in Mexico. Our Day of the Dead photo tour will not only be a great opportunity to improve your photography skills, but it will also be an unforgettable cultural experience – one for both amateur and advanced photographers.

Why do we love San Cristóbal de las Casas and Chiapas? In the southernmost state in Mexico, you will find amazing scenery, wonderful people, interesting cultural events, a mild climate, and markets loaded with fresh produce, crafts, art and coffee. Chiapas is a destination that you won’t soon forget and one that you, like us, will find yourself returning to frequently.


Why should you attend our Day of the Dead (Dia de los Muertos) photo tour? First of all, it will be a real experience, not one that is created for tourists. Even more importantly, the observances in small neighboring towns have not become crowded with tourists unlike the Day of the Dead celebrations in Oaxaca or Michoacan. We are going to visit small villages where people take great pride in bringing food and flowers to the graves of their departed family and celebrating their lives.

Here is another good reason why travel is good for you. It’s good for your health. Click here to read why. After working for more than 35 years, visiting more than 45 countries, all of the Canadian provinces and all 50 U.S. states as a professional photographer, I can affirm that travel is good for you mentally and physically. I’m still excited to pack my bags and cameras and leave for the next adventure.

Growing up in a small town, I remember devouring every National Geographic magazine that arrived in the mail. Like many photographers, I always dreamed of working for National Geographic. The real dream began in 1995 when I got the call from NatGeo. Eventually, I would photograph five books for National Geographic in the U.S., Canada and in eight African countries.
