There is simply nothing like Expedition Photography anywhere else in travel. Born of our expedition heritage, our exclusive program provides three key benefits:

• National Geographic photographers aboard every departure of National Geographic Explorer and National Geographic Orion, and select departures fleet-wide

• A Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor aboard every ship in our fleet

• Plus highly immersive Photo Expeditions, designed by photographers for photographers.

Travel to the planet’s most incredible places, in authentic expedition style, aboard well-equipped ships. Share the adventure with a renowned expedition team, and fellow guests with a matching passion to “aim & create.” PLUS travel with top National Geographic photographers and certified photo instructors—at your side and at your service to inspire and assist you. And, take advantage of talks, presentations, slideshows and sharing events we call “laptop galleries.”

All skill and interest levels are welcome; our expert photographers and instructors can meet you wherever you are on your journey. All you need to participate is a camera— point-and-shoot, smartphone, DSLR, whatever—and a sense of adventure. And you’re sure to return home with the best photos of your life.

And there’s more: we also have a unique partnership with B&H Photo & Video, the renowned retailer. They can help you gear up for the various conditions you’ll encounter on our expeditions—from Europe to Patagonia, and from the southern to the northern Polar Regions. We have teamed up with B&H and curated a special gear list with special pricing for all our booked guests. And on select Photo Expeditions, B&H experts offer new gear to try, and conduct Lightbox and/or Photoshop workshops aboard. Check out teaching videos from our recent 3-day photography event with B&H at www.optic2015.com

What I love about photography is how it invites you into a world of wonder and anticipation, where it's no longer about the camera but being in the moment.
