Most all of our CIDA only trips will have a photo professional on board to give one on one help to anyone who would like it. These will not be photo only trips but we have had very good luck with no drama and everyone getting along. The photo professionals we will have on board are (MZ)-Michael Zeigler , (TW)-Todd Winner and  (ZA)-Zac Araneta.
