We started a travel company.

It's called Moment Travel and we created it to get lost with our cameras. We believe that learning is best done when you’re exploring a place you’ve never been with people you just met.  Photography isn’t just about the technical quality of the image, but the acknowledgement that capturing and sharing moments is important. We hope these trips inspire you to see the world around you in a new way.

Who It’s For

Anyone who likes to get lost with their camera. All skill levels are welcome as our teachers (Dan and Caleb) can range from teaching the basics to the super advanced. Learning happens while exploring so the curriculum is 1:1 and tailored to whatever you want to improve at. 

The only real requirements are that you love to travel and have an adventurous spirit—up for hiking in the woods or kayaking on a lake. This trip is moderate when it comes to physical exertion, but some of the best shots do require a bit of hiking. We will be spending one night on a glacier, so hopefully you appreciate cool summer evenings.

What You Will Learn

Our goal for the week is for you to leave with wonderful memories, new friends, amazing photos, and a simple photographic project that helps you learn how to tell stories through your photos, and gives you a new way of seeing the places and people you see when you travel. 

Dan Rubin is the lead mentor on our trip and an amazing teacher. His Skillshare classes are crazy popular because he brings an approachable style to teaching while you’re out shooting. From the basics (composition and exposure) to the super advanced (post-production tips, location and light scouting) he can cover a wide spectrum from smartphone to digital to film. 

The backdrop for the trip is beautiful Juneau, Alaska, so the curriculum will be focused on photographing in natural light across a variety of conditions, capturing the scale of landscapes, and shooting friendly portraits along the way. In addition to advice about capturing, we’ll discuss gear, apps, editing/post-production, with plenty of time along the way to answer all your questions.

Items we’ll cover:

  • Composition
  • Lighting (including reading natural light, forecasts, and planning your shots) 
  • Depth of Field 
  • Long exposures (including using smartphone apps, and ND filters for larger cameras) 
  • Portraiture 
  • Action Photography (how to capture motion) 
  • Post-Production Tips and Tricks (how to make your RAW or JPG images look amazing)

Ak Itinerary 4

Time to say good bye. Check-out is by 11am. We'll give you a ride back to the airport before you take off with your camera full of unforgettable experiences.
