That’s why we prepared specialized tours for those who want to focus exclusively on photography. For photographers who want to expand their portfolio, share experience with colleagues, learn new techniques, and gain new insights on the road. We still stick to our chief principle – to provide immersion into the Caucasian culture.
Ancient auls and towers against the backdrop of majestic mountains - this is perhaps the main thing which attracts landscape photographers to the Caucasus.
Photographers and birdwatchers have the opportunity to see hundreds of birds, including very rare ones.

The landscapes of the Caucasus are interesting even by itself.
There are still many places in the Caucasus that no one has ever photographed before, especially in the unrecognized republics.
There are not so many places in the Caucasus that are convenient for photographing wildlife, in most cases you will have a real photo-hunting, but you will get unique pictures of truly wild nature!
Caucasus keeps picturesque traditions at the junction of paganism and Christianity, as well as impressive Islamic practices - Sufi dhikrs and Ashura's mourning rituals.
Traditional mountain life is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for fans of ethnographic photography.
Caucasus is a paradise for a portrait photographer!
New techniques and experiences
The guide who accompanies the group is a professional travel photographer and photography instructor who will come up with hints and tips on the site and will comment on your works in the evening at the hotel. Shooting and stitching together panoramas, stacking, luminosity masks, toning, using flash and artificial light – mastering these techniques might take years. On our photo tours you will be able to grasp unfamiliar techniques and get the hang of it at specifically selected sites and events.
Each day on a photo tour is planned to use the best light and not lose the precious minutes of ‘blue hour’. Our photo guide finds just the right time to capture the moment when the first ray of sunlight filters through the mountains, when the setting sun illuminates the snow-covered peaks. At that time ordinary tourists might still be asleep or already hurry for dinner.
We will take up the organization and logistics of the trip, suggest the best spots for shooting, and show you places where nobody else has shot before. Within one short trip you will get shots that would have required months of research. We are aware how crucial it is to provide the adequate level of comfort during shootings even in the remotest corners of the Caucasus. We will save your time, money, and sanity, and you will get to know the untouched places in the Caucasus, taking home thousands of pictures.
