Discovery Photo Tours
Discovery Photo Tours takes you to exotic destinations around the globe alongside our team of internationally acclaimed photographers. Our all inclusive tours are a life changing experience, filled with culture, cuisine, incredible photographs and unforgettable memories. We think you’ll enjoy them.
Discovery was created by photographers, with the goal of designing tours that we would like to go on. So before you dive in, we’d like to tell you about our Gold Standard, it’s what makes our tours truly unique and is woven into each and every tour we create.
We only photograph places where we love the food, culture and the people.
Each of our tours is designed around the “Discovery Gold Standard”, which means you’ll join some of the best photographers in travel photography, experience the culture that makes our destinations so unique, and capture it all from our favorite locations.
If you’d like to be treated as a friend being shown around to the best and most intimate discoveries we’ve made, we think you’ll enjoy our approach.
Discovery Gold Standard
Our tours are designed specifically for photographers – typically a step beyond what other tour operators offer… therefore destinations are chosen based on our ability to offer the highest level of expertise, on all fronts, for our guests.
Our passion is to create extraordinary cultural discoveries – through people, cuisine, art, architecture and more – to compliment your unmatched photographic experience.
We’re seeking talent devoid of ego; our aim is for you to work, elbow-to-elbow, with the photographers of greatest acclaim, in your chosen destination.
Capture it’s natural beauty
We wanted to create a tour that resonated with our most adventurous, most inspired, travelers, and we couldn’t think of a more bewitching destination than Iceland.
A rugged oasis of seemingly-celestial waterfalls, hidden volcanoes, volcanic black-sand beaches, steaming geysers, ice-blue lagoons, glacial lakes and the famed Northern Lights, you go to Iceland not knowing what to expect, but always come back changed.
With so many jaw-dropping locations it’s tough to describe them all in one paragraph, so be sure to read the itinerary. Our Iceland photo tour is an eight-day highlight reel, stopping at all our favorite spots. Be sure to bring enough memory cards, you’re gonna need them.
We see Geysir, capturing the explosion of boiling water rising 200 feet in the air. Black sand beaches littered with icebergs and puffins nesting on seaside cliffs. Waterfalls, each with its own unique character, from raging behemoths to delicate streams. Ice caves and glaciers, which honestly cannot be described and must be experienced and a plethora of other natural wonders. It’s a photographers paradise, full of magical moments.

what our guests have to say
The time I spent in Iceland on Ken’s tour is time I will remember for the rest of my life. Over the course of the tour we witnessed a vivid northern lights display, stood in the heart of a 10,000 year old glacial cave, and ate food found nowhere else in the world. And during the week and a half we spent in the beautiful Icelandic countryside, Ken and Patrick Di Fruscia were always there, providing essential insight and invaluable tips. I signed up for Ken’s tour to visit an extraordinary location with fellow photographers. I left the tour with an abundance of knowledge and lifelong memories.

Fun, educational, inspiring, adventurous and life-changing… just a few of the words I’d use to describe how incredible my experience of joining a photo tour in Jordan with Ken and Patrick was. Not only did I get to tick off one of my ‘bucket list’ travel destinations, but I did so in the company and under the guidance of two very kind and talented photographers. Meticulous planning ensured that we were met with one jaw-dropping location after another as well as being there at the perfect time of day and with ample time to photograph the scenes. As a novice photographer I was nervous about joining a photography tour but I needn’t have been. Patrick’s endless patience and ability to explain things in simple terms ensured I came away with a suite of new techniques as well as stunning photographs. Aside from this, I also made friends for life – who knew that traveling with a group of strangers from all over the world could be so much fun?! I’ll never forget sitting under a blanket of stars at the Monastery in Petra, truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience. The tour ignited my passion for photography and has changed my life in ways I couldn’t have imagined… I can’t wait for the next destination with you!

I have taken three photography tours with Ken Kaminesky, and each one has been special and awesome in its own way. On my first tour to Jordan, I had no idea what to expect, but had one of the best experiences of my life. On my second trip, I went to my #1 bucket list destination, Italy, and it went beyond my expectations – even with some crazy weather. On my third trip to Cambodia, I was profoundly impacted by what I saw and the people we interacted with. Each trip has been unique, and each was an amazing experience. I have come home each time with a wonderful set of pictures, but even better – a whole new group of friends. I can’t wait to go on my next trip!
