"I have enjoyed four wonderful photography adventures led by Douglas Steakley: Winter In Yellowstone Burma, Iceland, and a safari to Botswana and Victoria Falls; and have registered for a fifth to Kenya.
I started out knowing very little about photography other than I really enjoyed the experience of picture taking and was quickly bitten by the photo bug. Doug is an excellent teacher, he is very patient with our repeated questions and with each shoot I found a new layer of learning and how to use my equipment.
These experiences around the world have provided learning challenges about the country, the people and wildlife, and they have been filled with many spontaneous moments. In Burma we met tribal Burmese women on the road and were invited to visit their village where they danced and posed for us. We were the first westerners to visit their village. In Botswana, we set out on an afternoon safari drive to see a beautiful one-year old male leopard cub waiting in a tree for his mother to return with dinner.
I am looking forward to more fun, more learning and more adventures with Doug and fellow photographers."

All of my photography tours are comprised of small groups, which makes them more enjoyable. Photographers of any skill level are welcome, as are spouses or
friends who want to travel with a photographer. I strive to have enjoyable tours with lots of laughter and a feeling of camaraderie.
I will not be leading photography tours after 2018. I am going to travel on my own and with my family and friends. I will still be available to lead tours for groups, families and camera clubs and for private and small group tours.
I have been leading tours for about 15 years and have gone to numerous international destinations and many national parks in the United States. It has been a wonderful phase of my life and I want to thank everyone who has joined me and shared the wonderful experiences.
Individual and Small Group Tours
Individual or small group tours can be arranged to Big Sur
and other destinations such as Yosemite and Nipomo Dunes. I can also provide small group tours to other locations such
as Africa, Yellowstone, Burma, and other places I am familiar with.
In addition to working on site, I offer one-on-one tutoring
in Lightroom, Bride (Adobe Camera Raw) and Photoshop.
