What our participants say about our recent photo tours?
This was our second photo tour with Inscape and just as before all details were nicely handled to maximize time for photography. Martin had great locations lined up for photo stops but also showed flexibility in some impromptu locations, one of which turned out to be amazing. Martin and Jan (often one of his guides) are both great photographers and helpful with issues that arise with cameras or gear.
They help with composition if needed or will just let you go off to shoot alone if that is what you prefer. They are both quite pleasant and fun to be around. We had a great time and have already signed up for another photo tour! Thanks guys!
I have been in Prague before and have taken many “tourist” pictures, but on this photo tour, I was not a tourist. I was a photographer (and Martin had to occasionally remind me of that. ) This time, I took photos that were different from those that millions of tourists take every day.
Our tour group visited several places that tourists don’t even know about, and when we shot in the popular tourist locations, we were shooting photos in a different way – seeing the tourist sites through the eyes of a photographer. We looked at details, patterns, and interesting compositions in the Moravian landscapes, and in the many different types of architecture and streets across the various cities and towns. We even photographed some ordinary, mundane things and turned them into fascinating photographs. One afternoon, when it started to rain during our shoot, we found something else to photograph and came away with creative, unusual pictures. I even captured a photo of a “ghost” lurking around the Old Town Hall tower.
Some new techniques for me were: shooting in very poorly-lit locations, shooting long exposures, and using ND filters. I also learned new Photoshop techniques that make pictures pop out more.
Overall, the tour was an exciting experience and I have greatly benefited from it. I am not a tourist. I am a photographer!
“Attending the workshop in Iceland 2017 with Inscape Photo Tours was one of the most unforgettable experiences of my life. Jan and Martin are not only excellent photographers, but also great friends. They do much more than teaching you the techniques and art of photography. They know how to inspire and motivate the attendants. More than a group, it became a supportive team. I had lots of fun and I´ll never forget it.”
I was a bit nervous regarding the extent of the physical and extreme environmental challenges of photography in Iceland at this time of year. However, Martin’s planning and attention to the details of the itinerary ensured a very enjoyable trip. Each and every day was fun and filled with learning regardless of what the weather dished out. Both Martin and Jan were committed to making sure everyone came away with great photos and the knowledge to continue in their photography journey. If we weren’t outdoors on a shooting adventure, we were indoors learning how to post process our photos to their greatest potential. Regardless of the level of ability, experience or camera equipment, everyone was equally inspired and encouraged by both Martin and Jan with genuine enthusiasm for our learning. I will treasure the memories of this adventure!
The October Czech Republic photo tour was a fantastic experience from start to finish. Martin is an exceptional photographer and understands how to communicate his skills in an easy-going and gentle way. He also makes sure to take care of the needs of his clients, ranging from airport/train station transportation to choosing comfortable and clean accommodations. During our photo shoots, Martin made sure to give each participant guidance and help with any questions regarding camera use or settings. He is also exacting on composition and emphasized how even very small changes to composition can improve an image significantly. Within Prague, Martin took us to locations where we could get both iconic shots and lesser known but excellent and interesting photos as well. As we ventured to other locations, we were given opportunities to shoot unusual and scenic landscapes, beautiful small towns, a castle with its lovely grounds, and owls and birds of prey. Martin encouraged us to use lines and curves within a scene as elements of composition and stressed the power of simplicity. The opportunity to photograph owls and a falcon was simply amazing and was my favorite part of the tour.
For the post-processing sessions, Martin preferred to work with each of us one-on-one. This approach allowed for personalized instruction and editing of a selection of each client’s photos. Other group members were welcome to observe.
On the Czech Republic tour, there is a maximum of five clients, which keeps the group small and allows each of us time with Martin. Our group consisted of people from four continents and it was a joy to get to know each of them. We all traveled well together, enjoyed sharing photos, and had interesting and fun discussions. I would highly recommend Inscape Photo Tours. Martin’s dedication to each photographer’s positive experience is evident. His primary intention is for photographers to be provided with the opportunity and guidance that will result in excellent photographs. It was a real pleasure to have such a conscientious and personable guide. Thank you for the exceptional experience!
The Lofted Photo Tour was not on my ‘bucket list’, but having gone I would recommend ALL make this trip sometime with Martin. At 74 years of age, I was the oldest on the trip. I joined my brother and sister-in-law and left with more photograph memories than I could imagine. From the minute we got to Norway, our trip began with building a memory…..one day at a time. Martin and Pedro had photography planned before we got to our hotel room. They monitored the weather and times to view the Northern Lights. We were told from beginning to the end of the tour, what to bring for warm clothing, weather, lens, shoes, jacket, etc.. If the weather changed, we changed with it to do post-processing or learn ways to improve our picture taking.
Many years ago I made up my mind to ‘find people doing and going where I want to go in life and grow old with them’. This was my third trip with Inscape and I can hardly wait for the next. You don’t need a large group to have a BIG memory. Martin keeps the size of the group at a size that you feel that you are treated personally with all your questions and desire to learn.
10 days in Iceland with Inscape Photo Tour has been one of the great trips for me. Martin and Jan opened a door to post-processing world that I never knew could make your photos go from good to wow. Martin and Jan both are passionate about photography and same passion reflects in their exemplary efforts to make sure every participant became friends with their camera and lenses and had great pictures of Iceland. Visiting Ice cave was one of the coolest experiences for most of us on the trip. Thanks to Martin for going an extra mile to reschedule Ice cave tour with another company earlier than the planned one as weather was getting miserable. As an added benefit, everyone in the group was enthusiastic and fun to travel with.
Iceland is beautiful country and exploring it with Inscape photography tour was a perfect fit. Now, whenever I take a picture whether phone or camera, I am always thinking “Have I clipped the highlights in the sky or how can I make this composition better” 🙂 Hope to explore another part of the world with Inscape Photo Tours in future.
It was a photography trip for the history books! Each day was filled with portfolio worthy images, a perfect combination of destination, subject, lighting and composition. Martin and Jan provided amazing guidance both at location and in post-editing to help me take the best images ever. The trip was filled with adventure, laughs and thrills. The memories and friendships our entire group made will last a lifetime. I’m looking forward to many more photographic adventures with Inscape Photo!
We’ve done three photography tours with Inscape: Iceland, New Zealand, and most recently, the Lofoten Islands. Each trip was well organized and executed. Martin, the owner, makes sure all the details are taken care of and if there any problems that arise, he takes care of them promptly behind the scenes. From a photography view, Martin is very talented and has a strong eye for composition. He is also strong in post-processing. He will help you as much as you would like, yet let you do your own thing if you prefer. He is patient, kind, and likes to help the participants learn new things. We’ve also been pleased with the additional guides he hires to assist on the trips. They have been equally talented and capable of running tours on their own!
We look forward to taking another photography tour with Inscape in the future. Maybe Africa…
“I had a wonderful experience of joining Martin and Jan on a recent Iceland photography tour. The entire tour was well planned, good accommodations, safe transportation and spacious cars for 2 small groups. Jan and Martin provided knowledgeable in photography as well as the locations for the best ways to get amazing shots. It was a pleasant, fun, a lot of memories photo trip, I enjoyed every moment!”
It’s been great to reminisce about our time and trip to Tanzania with others. The real enjoyment was when it was ’today’. The best kind of memories in life is when they come in three’s… like friends, dreams, and memories.
I came home with a blister on one finger from taking close to 5000 photos. I never want to stop making memories with Martin and Inscape . This was not an ordinary trip, and I can’t help but look at all my photos and smile. A memory, to me, is what Tanzania was and I have found that a great experience like this tour does not completely ‘unhappen’ when you have come back home. I can assure you that this is not a trip for large lens on your camera……we got right next to most wildlife.
Guides, drivers, and assistance with taking photos was always available. A must do trip. I’m on my way to Leknes Norway next month for another Lofoten Photo Tour with Martin. Can hardly wait.
Just returned from Czech photo tour organized by Martin Bisof . Highly recommended. Imagine having a young, enthusiastic photographer as a friend in Prague who meets you at the airport, carefully plans your tour, books cozy little hotels, knows the best spots , takes care of all your needs. Four very different participants from all over the world had an immediate click. Martin is very knowledgeable in photography, gear and after processing. Always eager to give an advice. What I liked best is his subtle taste and sensitivity, the “cleanliness” in his composition, sophisticated simplicity. We were not so lucky with the “right” , photographic weather. The mist was too heavy in Moravian fields, the sun did not rise over the Prague roofs on the right day, etc,etc. And yet everyone was happy thanks to Martin’s good humor and optimism.
Inscape Photo Tours provided one fantastic trip. Jan and Martin took us to the beauty of Iceland and we spent twelve days with ourselves and our camera shutter’s being busy catching the world thru their eyes. No matter what your experience level or equipment that you brought, they could both help you. Trip more than met my expectations. Personally, before this trip I primarily took pictures of birds and wildlife. Taking pictures of landscape and understanding Martin and Jan’s desire to create composition in your picture was ‘eye opening’ for me. I’m truly glad I went on this trip. At the age of 72 I was able to keep up with the ‘group’ and they pushed us to have as many experiences with our camera as possible. My time with my camera will be better, in the future, because of what I learned and experienced with Inscape during this trip.
I stumbled across Inscape Photo Tours on one of my many internet searches – and am I ever thrilled that I did! Right from the first contact by email with my initial enquiry, Martin was attentive and helpful answering all of my many questions. And my experience on the tour itself was no different. The tour was extremely well organised and ran absolutely smoothly. I have no doubt about how much work was put in behind the scenes by Martin and his team to make sure things went according to plan – and everything did – making the tour an absolute pleasure to be a part of.
Not only did I learn an enormous amount about landscape photography and editing techniques under Martin’s guidance – I had an absolute blast! (Made even better by the awesome group I was on tour with:-). I would have no hesitation recommending Inscape Photo Tours to both beginner and experienced photographers alike – and I for one will definitely book another tour with Inscape.
Thank you Inscape!
I am thankful that i was able to participate in your photo tour in Iceland. I was both a great learning experience and a chance for me to get out of my comfort zone. The student to teacher ratio was excellent! You and Jan were able to spend time with us, teaching, correcting, and sharing with us your expertise. I am glad that aside from the technical aspects which confuse me sometimes, you also taught us the value of the story behind the picture. I really appreciated that!
I traveled with Inscape Photo Tours on their Myanmar Photo Tour. It was an excellent experience! I had a wonderful tour with my guides Martin and Jan. They took care of everything along the way and shared their awesome photography knowledge with each of us.
The tour was great for any experience level of photographer. Our activities were well planned out with many models added to our photography shoots to capture the iconic images of the diverse people of the country. We also had many post-processing sessions to discuss this most important step in our creative vision.
I will definitely be traveling with this company again in the future.
This was my first photo tour with Inscape tours and it won’t be my last. Everything was very organized. As traveling photographers, we didn’t have to think about anything but our camera gear. We had two guides (Martin, the owner) and Jan. Both were wonderful and always willing to help with any photography advice. On a couple of days, we had some local models which we got to photograph in various locations. We also received candid feedback during post-processing which is always helpful.
Martin had all the details worked out ahead of time and was quick to resolve any issues were encountered. Our tour was made up of solo travelers. We had a small group and everyone got along. Looking forward to joining about photo tour in the future!
This Photo Tour with Martin was absolutely great! We did this in autumn, the colors of the fields and the woods were stunning. Under Martin’s guidance, I took incredible photographs, I never thought I would ever be able to shoot such beautiful pictures. Not only the autumn colors, the beautiful sights in Prague, Telc, and Cesky Krumlov, and Martin’s insightful photography advice made the tour a great success for me. A highlight was the (photographic of course) shooting of owls, a new experience, that also resulted in beautiful images.
Everything was very well organized, we stayed in excellent lodgings, and even had the occasion to taste Czech wines (which were excellent). Martin is an incredibly nice person, very patient and always in a good mood. I hope to join him on a photo tour again in the future. Thanks, Martin!
My sister and I joined Martin’s trip to the Lofoten Islands to photograph the northern lights. The entire trip was very well organized – lodging, transportation, and some meals taken care of just as described, and the accommodations were all very nice.
The locations we visited were amazing and we got beautiful photos, including photos of the aurora! We really appreciated Martin’s local knowledge that allowed us to find the best locations for shooting depending on light and weather. One thing that made this trip extra-special was the one-on-one post-processing that Martin provided to help us organize and edit the many photos we were taking. I came home from the trip with amazing photos and an improved understanding of how to work with lightroom and photoshop to get the most out of those photos. I also really appreciated the small group setting and the amount of communication that Martin provided. We always knew what the plan was and what factors might cause us to re-evaluate the plan, such as weather. The whole group was able to provide input on what kind of photos we wanted to take and what techniques we were interested in learning about.
Overall an incredible trip and a great opportunity to improve my photography skills!
Our InScape photo tour of New Zealand definitely exceeded our expectations. Martin and Jan were excellent guides, everything was well coordinated and they even arranged for the weather to cooperate! In addition to spectacular scenery and shooting locations, their attention and patience assured that we were all better photographers by the trip’s end. Not to mention, it was a lot of fun!
We were very satisfied with all aspects and plan to book another tour with InScape.
