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.

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!

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!

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!

We enjoyed the tour to Iceland so much that immediately signed up for the incoming tour to New Zealand with Inscape Photo Tours.
Martin and Jan are very professionals. They have the ability to teach at all levels with patience and encouragement.
I’m personally improving my photography techniques by capturing amazing images in some of the most incredible travel destinations under their direction.
We are also happy that we had the chance to meet nice people, especially on the New Zealand tour. We had fun and unforgettable memories that will stay with us forever!

Ingo, Germany

I have booked 2 photo tours with Inscape Photo Tours, the first was the trip to Iceland and the 2nd one was to New Zealand. Both tours were extremely well organized. Both Martin and Jan are excellent in assisting the clients.

I had a fantastic time on both tours and can only recommend taking part in these tours. I am already preparing for the next on in Lofoten!

Eric, Canada

What an incredible tour! I was able to get the most iconic shots I’ve been after for years. Each day was extremely well organized so that we were able to best make use of the light and location. Even when the weather wasn’t cooperating, there were contingency plans on what best to shoot so that no time was ever wasted.

Martin and Jan’s expertise and friendliness was over the top. Their unique ability to provide individual instruction on both composition and editing to photographers of various levels of experience was amazing. I’m thrilled having finished this photo tour with dozens of pictures I’m proud to hang on the wall and can’t wait to sign up for the next trip!

Thanks Inscape!!!

Debra and Scott, USA

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.

Karyn and Bill, USA

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!

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.

“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!”

Sandra, USA

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!

Caroline, USA

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!

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.

Blanka B., Canary Islands

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!

Paul D’, Switzerland

As an experienced traveler and photographer but with little time available, what I look for is to be in the right place at the right time. With Martin I found exactly that…and even more! The trip was perfectly organized. Martin is a nice person all round, a first rate photographer and knows every corner of his country, the best season and the best time to photograph it.

In my group there were also less experienced people and I could appreciate how patient and kind was Martin in offering his expert help and answering all kind of questions. He cares that you become a better photographer.

Thanks for everything, I had a great time and a lot of fun. I’m looking forward to do another trip with you! 🙂

“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.”

Eric Y., Toronto, Canada

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!

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.

Karyn and Bill W., Dallas, USA

I’m not sure where to begin because this trip was just about perfect. The actual scenery was beautiful, the weather was mild (by Iceland standards), the hotels were well chosen, the food was very good, the photography opportunities were ideal, and the fellowship of the participants was an unexpected bonus. Actually, the entire trip felt like a bonus because we were uncertain what to expect going in. I’m pleased to say that probably every aspect of this trip exceeded our expectations.  Martin is an excellent tour leader. It was apparent that he paid careful attention to all the details necessary to make the trip successful. Both Martin and Jan are excellent photographers and guides. Their personalities and styles fit together well.

We enjoyed the tour so much that we are planning on joining Inscape again in 2019 in New Zealand. We would highly recommend Inscape and trust them for any photo tour!

Martin met us at a predetermined spot. Martin then guided us through Old Town in Prague and was patient with me as I went through all the machinations to set my camera to the proper settings. Since I am a novice, his tutoring was extremely helpful. Perhaps the highlight of our trip was during twilight atop a hill overlooking the river and the Charles Bridge.

    5 star ratingExcellent Prague Photo Tour I did the evening tour in September 2019 and found it extremely helpful to accelerate my photography skills. Martin was an excellent teacher and willingly shared his experience about camera settings, composition, night photography and capturing the best photograph etc.

    As a photography newbie it was great to be able to interact with Martin to ask and have answers to the questions which a gaggle of "You Tube" videos fail to answer or just leave you more perplexed after watching.

    I would highly recommend Martin's Prague Photo Tour as a must do in Prague.

    Martin was able to suggest different spots for the rest of my trip which I found very helpfully

    I have been on a few photo tour around the world and this is up there as one of the best .

He took me to several great spots around Prague and even though it was mid August and very crowded in the city he knew key spots that had little to no people! Martin spent time helping me with composition, exposure settings, and knew features of my camera that I wasn't even aware of. He was very helpful. I highly recommend Martin's Prague Photo Tour.

We're both amateur/beginner photographers and because of Martin we now have some great photos from our trip to Prague. During this 3 hr your he taught me quite a few things about my camera that I used during the rest of the trip. He also organizes intense photo tours to exotic locations like Iceland, Myanmar, etc that last over a week... So he has a lot of experience teaching photography techniques to all skill types. This definitely showed during our small 2 person tour with him.... read more

We went straight to the best photo spots, away from the tourists crowds and at the best time of the day for lighting conditions. Martin always had the right advice for me, he even lent me some material and taught me things little tricks on my camera I wasn't aware off even. It's really worth it if you want to come back with good photos from Prague.

Martin is an amazing person and certainly knows what he is doing behind the camera. We met for a sunset tour and then a morning tour the following morning and I got to practice street/architecture photography, composition and long exposure. He even made some suggestions about how certain shots could be post processed. Martin was also kind enough to let me borrow his telephoto lens and tripod, which I was very grateful for since I did not have to bring those on my trip with me.

Regardless of your experience, Martin is a great way to find the out of the way places in Prague to take fantastic photos. Prague was very crowed when I was there but Martin showed me street that were empty of people. He knew when and were to be for the best lighting the photos.

Martin was very professional, and responded quickly through emails communication. During the photo shoot session, he showed us areas that were very nice to take pictures which we would not have found by ourselves. He was very accommodating and helpful. The pictures were delivered within the time frame and we were very satisfied with the quality of the pictures. Highly recommended!!

He was real helpful, knowledgeable, was quick to identify ways to improve my photography and was patient. He was well prepared and was well acquainted with each site we visited. I consider myself a pretty good photographer, but I learned a lot. Best of all I left the tour with some great shots even without a true sunset as it was overcast. I consider myself fortunate to have taken the tour with him as my guide.

Martin was highly accommodating to my limited schedule, and while it was not at the ideal time of day, we spent a very productive and interesting few hours exploring both lesser known and more common sites in Prague. A great instructor, a good conversationalist and an excellent photographer, Martin willingly shared his knowledge of the city with me, and helped improve the images I would otherwise have tried to capture on my own. Great time, highly recommended!
