VENTURE FURTHER, SPEND BETTERâ„¢

The undisputed best value in hands-on
TRAVEL & nature photography workshops

Our workshops bring you and your camera into the moment, on location and closer to the action at the most memorable destinations on earth. If you've ever been to an amazing place or witnessed an incredible moment, but wondered why your photographs just don't seem to measure up, we're here to help by providing hands-on guidance.  Great photographs don't happen by accident, and our goal at BlueHour Photo Ventures is to not only train you on-location at some of our planet's most exciting and memorable outdoor destinations, but to give you a lifetime's worth of photography skills and knowledge that will inspire you to see your future travels and photographic adventures in an entirely different way.

YOUR Instructors


Fun-loving adventure seekers,
experienced teachers.

Our highly skilled and experienced instructors, Paul Nguyen, Lauren Chagaris, and Allie Richards embrace a professional approach to photography, but want to have as much fun taking pictures as you do!

BlueHour is Paul's brainchild - a dream at long-last come true. He is a professional photographer who spends most of his time selling prints at art shows or speaking or judging at local camera clubs. He pores over the planning of photo shoots for each of our workshops, from the angles of the rising sun to the turning of tides. Lauren, now a resident of Seattle, studied photography and marketing in college, and is an instructor for our West coast workshops. Allie, our newest addition, has practiced photography from a young age, and instructs on the East coast. Each of us share a passion for photography, travel, and sharing our experiences with others.
