Photo Tours and Classes

Jim Zuckerman

Jim Zuckerman Photo Tours

My philosophy in leading photo tours is simple. The pictures are paramount. The people who travel with me know they will take the best pictures of their lives. My trips are not relaxing, however. We usually get up early and often stay out late, depending on the light. We deal with heat, cold, dust, and sometimes long drives on bad roads, but it’s all to take great photographs.​
