Photo Workshops

Picture Methods Photo Tours and Workshops are held around the world to help you elevate your craft and build your portfolio.

Inspiring locations. When you attend one of our events, you’ll have access to prime photo locations at the right time to put you in the best position to make compelling images. Every step of the way, you’ll work with a published, professional photographer to guide you as much or as little as you prefer.

Small classes. Our class sizes are limited, so you have plenty of access to instructors in the field. You’ll come back from our trips with portfolio-quality photographs—we guarantee it.

Here’s a list of currently scheduled photo tours:

Scott Bourne is available for private workshops and for very small group instruction on a limited basis. Trips can be scheduled anywhere in the USA.
