Pack Your Camera

Capture Japan and take the best photos of your life


Thanks to the alliance between National Geographic and Lindblad Expeditions, you can travel to world-class geographies, discover peerless photo ops, and have a National Geographic photographer plus a Lindblad-National Geographic certified photo instructor at your service.

With diverse landscapes, unique gardens, and breathtaking architecture spanning centuries, Japan speaks to the artist in everyone. Capture the moments at the heart of your expedition with your camera. And count on our onboard professional photographers to ensure that you’re able to express what you see and feel.

Thanks to our Expedition Photography program you’ll have the assistance you need to take the best shots of your life. A National Geographic photographer joins us on each of our Japan expeditions. These are the top professionals whose images have animated the pages of National Geographic. They’ll inspire you, and help with tips, advice and illuminating talks and slideshows. Your certified photo instructor, a veteran naturalist, is trained to assist you with your camera model, the basics of composition and more. He or she will provide instruction, on-the spot-assistance and shooting tips. You’ll get to participate in unique share and learn opportunities too, including one-to-one critiques, onboard presentations and slideshows, plus laptop gallery events. Whether you think of yourself as a photographer, or just someone with a point-and-shoot camera, you’ll go home a better, more confident image-maker—with a marvelous Japan photo album.
