Get ready to join us on a fun filled photography adventure. Our Charleston, SC itinerary has been designed by this tour's leaders and is great for photography enthusiasts of all levels of experience.  The emphasis will be on bringing you and other attendees to the right place at just the right moment so that you may see unique landscapes as you capture amazing images.  Our leaders have been chosen to offer you hands-on instruction in the field and throughout the entire tour. South Carolina has some of the most unique beaches on the eastern seaboard along with beautiful plantation houses, gardens and a city overflowing with history architecture. Springtime along the coast will display colorful sunrises and dramatic skies.  The gardens and the plantations come to life in April too, their floral landscapes in full bloom with rich, vibrant color.  We'll take a private ferry to Bull's Island where you'll have exclusive access to Boneyard Beach at sunrise.  Early entry into Cypress Gardens and Magnolia Plantation allows attendees to beat the crowds and to catch that golden sunlight, making for exquisite photographic artistry.  Historic Charleston is host to charm unlike any other city, overflowing with that good ole southern hospitality.  This 4-DAY guided photography tour begins with a meet and greet and finishes with an image sharing workshop. You'll make new friends and discover the Charleston, SC you've never known. This tour will be lead by Rick Berk and Jessica Lempin. Rick and Jessica are looking forward to meeting you!

Bull’s Island Boneyard Beach & Ravenel Bridge

While Cape Romain is normally closed from dusk to dawn, we’ve arranged for a private ferry to take us to the Boneyard Beach at Bull’s Island to capture the sunrise over this pristine shoreline in a National Wildlife Refuge.

In the late afternoon, we’ll head to our sunset location to photograph Ravenel Bridge and Shem Creek. The Ravenel Bridge is an iconic symbol of Charleston, and Shem Creek in the village of Mount Pleasant provides an excellent opportunity to photograph shrimp trawlers as they dock for the night.

In the afternoon and evening we’ll head to Waterfront Park in historic Charleston and the Battery with it’s scenic promenade and historic park.  The battery is lined with beautiful antebellum homes, perfect for architectural photos!
