Year-round Custom/Private Palouse Photo Tours and Night Photography

Custom or private Palouse Photo tours/workshops: Living on the Palouse fulltime, I am available to offer a custom or private 1-3 day Palouse Photo Tour/Workshop throughout the year that meets your unique needs. Tell me what you want to photograph and I will develop a custom tour that will include several of my favorite photo sites under the best available light. Most custom tours last 11 to 12 hours of shooting in the field. If you are interested in shooting the Palouse region during spring, summer, fall or winter, contact us to arrange a custom photo tour.

Palouse After Dark - Night Photography: I am available to provide individual training on how to photograph the Palouse at night. The Palouse offers endless opportunity to shoot the Milky Way over barns, windmills, vintage vehicles, silos, and other structures. Regardless if you are new to night photography or a seasoned shooter the images you will capture during a night shoot will be stunning. You can arrange for either an “Introduction to Night Photography on the Palouse” or a 4 to 5-hour field shoot.  Available dates: May, June, July, and August near or on a New Moon. Call or email to see what dates are available as these night sessions fill fast.  

Practice good photographer ethics – Palouse Country Photo Tours/Workshops will always practice good photographer ethics and ensure everyone attending our tours/workshops understands the importance of respecting the landowners, farmers, and those living on the Palouse. It is imperative that ALL photographers visiting the Palouse not trespass, enter fields without permission from the landowner, park their vehicle on a road, go into “Abandon buildings” including barns and homesteads, and never interfere with farmers doing their work.

Wheatland Farm: Palouse Country Photo Tours/Workshops is based out of our Wheatland Farm located 6 miles east of Colfax in the heart of the Palouse. Wheatland farm provides an ideal setting to conduct both classroom and field instruction. Located in our field are several iconic photo props that include a barn, windmill, two antique tractors (1927 and 1941), freight wagon, 1942 International wheat truck, 1936 Ford truck, 1949 Chevy truck, and numerous farm implements. These items are strategically placed to photograph the Milky Way overhead.    

Camera Clubs: If you would like to sponsor or arrange a special Palouse Country Photo Tour/Workshop for your local camera club, please contact us for a special rate. We will certainly work with you to design a tour/workshop that meets the specific needs of your group and at an affordable rate.

Discount for returning clients: If you have previously attended a Palouse Country Photo Tour/Workshop contact us for a special discount.
