From lush tropical jungles to windswept deserts and glorious ruins, travel photography promises adventure and immersion in exotic lands for both the photographer and their audience. But how do you get started? What are the rules of the road? How do you approach a stranger on the street and bring out the genuine spark of their personality?

From inspiring images to hilarious anecdotes and insider tips this event is guaranteed to whet your appetite for far-flung places, people and cultures.

Kicking off in December with a Luxury Photo Expedition to Egypt, the trip will culminate in a private dawn visit to the Temple of Karnak on the Winter Solstice, where the structure’s solar alignments make it seem as if the temple is giving birth to the rising sun. At A&I on October 14, Greg and Josh will discuss many of the unique features of the trip; which include an exclusive 5-star Nile Cruise, photo workshops, and special (often private) opportunities to photograph in temples, bazaars, villages, and areas of cultural significance across the country. Participants’ best work from the trip will be featured in a deluxe, commemorative Spirit Quest book that will be created by A&I, as well as being featured in a dedicate group show held at A&I Gallery.  Click below for the private web site for the trip:
