Both are experienced photographers, travelers and instructors, and members of the Photographic Society of America, who will enrich your visit by sharing their knowledge and skills. They invite you to “Learn! Improve!

On April 6, 7, 8 and 9 Mountaineer Photo Excursions (MPEx) will provide transportation and guidance as we begin our days with sunrises like no others; and continue with seascapes along the beach with the power and mystery of the Atlantic Ocean at your feet. Wildlife such as osprey, black bears, and turtles make the area their home, and MPEx knows where to find them! We’ll even see wildlife from under the sea!
In addition to the world of nature, we will explore the history of the area, including the Wright Brothers National Memorial; visit historic lighthouses that continue as aids to navigation, as well as being iconic sights along the waters; and visit other photogenic opportunities, such as a fishing village, harbors and boats.
Tentatively, we plan to visit the following locations:Pine Island Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary
This will be an Adventure Tour not just to view, but to experience! Four full and exciting days of photography and travel! Plus, at the end of our organized event, you will have April 10 and 11 to explore and photograph on your own, while continuing to enjoy all the comforts of our extra-large beach getaway!
