Adventure through the winter of northern Minnesota, alongside an Award-winning wildlife photographer as your photography guide and instructor.

On this photography tour, designed for photographers of all levels, you will focus on producing unique snowy owl or great grey owl imagery while sharpening your photographic mindset and skills.

The small group size will allow everyone plenty of room for personal space and photographic gear. It will also allow plenty of time for One-on-One photographic instruction.

Our focus will be to capture images of wild snowy owls or great grey owls at one of the best locations in the United States. Join us for this one of a kind photographic adventure!

These tours are not limited to photographers.  Anyone interested in seeing owls in their natural habitat are welcome to join the tour at the same rate as photographers.  *The best way for nature lovers to go is to accompany a photographer when they sign up, and pay only the $400 spectator fee to tag along.


★  A unique photography experience

★  A chance to photograph snowy owls or great grey owls in their natural habitat

★  Small group size to allow for individual instruction

★  A portion of the proceeds from each photography tour is donated to help protect snowy owls and great grey owls

★  We have years of scouting experience to help maximize the time spent taking pictures.  All owls are wild, and as such, no guarantee can be made that owls will be present.  However, every time we have had a tour, we have seen owls in multiple locations.

★  Participants should meet for pickup at the Duluth, MN (DLH) airport.  Pick up and drop off at Minneapolis Airport (MSP) negotiable.

February 2017 - "Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!  We ended up with soooo many pictures of great grey owls.  We will be scheduling another trip to photograph the snowy owls!!  Greg was a great teacher, and helped us understand how to use our equipment.  Even though he primarily uses Nikon, he was able to help us with our Canon cameras."
