FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
You guys do this in the WINTER?! Isn’t it cold?
We absolutely do! We run this tour all year because the chances for different types of shots changes with the seasons. Some of the most stunning images can come out of winter time with the water is frozen, the trees lose their foliage and that low winter sun makes everything golden. We also use a bunch of indoor spaces too, so you got this.
I’m a beginner. Is this tour too advanced for me?
Negatory! This tour is perfect for you. Not only do you get to explore and discover new things to photograph, but you’ll have the help of our professional photographer leading the tour and providing useful tips to make the most out of your experience.
I’m a pro. Is this tour too basic for me?
Hey hey, we didn’t call you any names… But seriously, No. You’ll have a blast! Take this opportunity to gain some new inspiration.

What gear is required for this tour?
Just a camera! Anything from a point-and-shoot to a bajillion dollar DSLR is cool with us. If you’re feeling extra experimental, maybe a small, lightweight tripod that fits on your lap. We also have people that just use a smartphone with is totally rad too. Whatever you use to make images works great.
What should I wear?
Dress for the weather! We also suggest some comfortable footwear. You’re going to be doing some walking and we want to make sure you stay dry and comfy!

NOPE! No, but really… we can’t wait. There is a whole busload of fine folks ready to roll. So please please please be on time! We got stuff to explore and photos to take!
Can I drink on the bus?
Feel free to bring non-alcoholic beverages on board for this one. We want to leave the booze at home though. Booze and expensive camera gear don’t often play nice together.
What about food?
Snacks or bag lunches are welcome! But you should probably fill up before-hand just in case.
What if I can’t show up? Will my friend be able to go instead?
Totally. Just let us know ahead of time via email@example.com and we’ll update your tickets with the new name or send them with your printed tickets.
Will you be selling extra seats at the bus?
Nope. Sorry. All passes gotta be bought online. There’s a limited number of seats and we want you to have plenty of room – no roof riders no matter how badass that might sound.
What about weather SNAFUs?
We live in Michigan. Sometimes Mother Nature likes to throw us a curveball. We keep safety as our highest priority. In case of gnarly weather, you’ll receive an email the day of the event with a raincheck/snowcheck date. If you cannot make the rescheduled date, you’ll get a voucher good for a future tour with us. We run this tour in most weather so only the extreme stuff will keep us grounded.
