This tour is the world’s first photo tour into the swamps of Louisiana and Texas. With so many photographers nowadays organizing photo tours, and so many of them shamelessly copying existing tours, we decided to set up something completely unique and different again. Unique, because there is no other company in the world that offers a tour like this, and different because this tour is nothing like our other tours – it’s a lot more active :-)

Our prime subject on this tour will be the photogenic Cypress trees. These magnificent trees can be found primarily in and around swamps, which means that we’ll have to use a kayak to move around. This not only is a lot of fun, it’s also a wonderful way to experience the beautiful swampscapes.

We have made a digital brochure for you with more detailed information, and some cool images to whet your appetite. There’s also practical information in there on the specifics of kayaks and swamp photography, and on how to get around. Please read it carefully, because this tour is not for everyone. You can find the digital brochure here.

There is also a link to the tour impression video in the digital brochure, but if you prefer to have a direct link to the video, you can watch it on Vimeo.
