Photo Safari Workshops offers an in-depth exploration of photography around the world. All workshops are on location at the areas most photogenic locations. Our workshops are designed for participants to create a beautiful and diverse portfolio of dynamic photographic images.


Our creative spirit is at the heart of our mission to inspire photographers to cultivate their own creative unique perspective and self expression in the composition of beautiful images. Our excursions are designed specifically with your portfolio in mind. Our challenge has been to design adventures to encounter the most beautiful places on the planet in the most authentic way. We offer our photographers an extraordinary experience and unparalleled opportunity to explore fine art photography techniques.

Photographer Guides Brian Ross, Joshua Lambus, Cary Dean, Sam Ameen, and Chris Baldwin share their extensive travel photography encounters and soulful expression of their passion for the art of photography.

We believe a great photograph begins with the photographer before he picks up the camera. We cultivate the consideration of diverse perspectives for the locations that we visit and the people we encounter to offer our photographers a deeper connection to their subjects,  to create more meaningful and evocative images. Whether it is a majestic sunrise at Macchu Pichu in the Peruvian Andes, or  the smile of a stranger in a foreign land, our ultimate mission is to share what would have been an unseen perspective, a beautiful invisible moment,  and create dynamic images as expressions that move people, sharing the light.

With camera in hand in the field, we will examine fine art photographs and discuss the unique visual grammar techniques which they exemplify and explore those techniques on location.  As global citizens we should always leave a place better than we found it and  support the preservation of local cultures and child welfare in the host countries.

For the past five years, we have been bringing hundreds of guests into the rain forests, volcanoes, beaches and beautiful off the beaten path locations throughout the Hawaiian islands creating extraordinary experiences. We have received 5 star reviews and accolades from those who have shared the journey with us. Now we are offering this unique experience beyond the canvas of Hawai’i and into the canvas of the world, painting with the light as we go.

The journey is the destination. 
Join us for the adventure of a lifetime.


Our team of experts have designed extraordinary encounters in the most extraordinary places. From adventurous elephant trekking to awe-inspiring beaches, our collection of destinations is irresistible.

“There are thousands of ‘good’ photography workshops around the word.  And very few that are ‘extraordinary’.  Let alone, there is only one that deserves to be called ‘the best’.  This title we have given to “Photo Safari Workshops”.  Their list of exciting destinations from around the world, the dedication of its management, and their unique offering  is unparalleled in the industry.” 
Alex Schult, PhotographyTalk.com, Inc.
“Coaching with a professional is the practice of supporting an individual through the process of achieving a specific personal result. The structure and methodologies of coaching are numerous but are predominantly facilitating in style; that is to say that the coach mainly asks questions and challenges you to see light and nature in a different way. Brian is a coach in all aspects. Photo Safari Hawaii is always my 1st suggestion to all my clients. Ask me more about their Eco Tours!!”

“The techniques and methods of teaching you employ to bring out the compositions and the talent of the photographers is great. I had the impression that the photographers on your tour were seasoned professionals looking for backdrops.”
Ted Kawahinehelelani Blake, National Tropicla Botanical Garden
“In retrospect, those two hours taught me more than I had learned on my own in over fifteen years of digital photography.”
