Book a guided Central Oregon photo tour with Professional Photographer and Oregon licensed Outfitter/Guide, James Parsons.

Come see some of the most amazing scenery in the Pacific Northwest, go home with epic photos and new photography skills!


I am currently running a Smith Rock, Cascade Lakes and Newberry Caldera guided tour. I let YOU pick the place that you most want to see and photograph. If you are not familiar with the area, then I am happy to pick the most photogenic spot given the weather and time of year. If the Cascade Lakes Highway or Newberry Caldera is closed due to snow, it is still accessible to us. We can go in by snowmobile. 

I take you into some of the most amazing scenery in Oregon and help you get amazing photos, whether you are shooting with a pro DSLR or a cell phone. I make sure you get amazing photos and learn new photography skills that will improve your digital images for the rest of your life. Tours typically last 3-4 hours and depart from Bend. Tours typically last from 3pm until just after sunset. 


$300 for a half-day tour
$500 for a full-day tour

The above rates are for 1 person. Each additional person is $50. Limit 3 people.

*Snowmobile photo tours will cost an additional $50 per trip starting 2/5/16 to cover gas, oil and maintenance* 

Contact me for booking. 

$100 Deposit required. 


"James expertise and knowledge of the area means he will take you to sweet spots you would not be able to access on your own. James gave me great photography tips on composition, focus, exposure and use of the histogram. These were helpful tips to make me think about the photos I am taking and make me a better photographer"

"What an incredible afternoon! James knowledge of photography and the local area provided exceptional value for the cost! We are planning to take another trip again this season."
