  • Spent a wonderful 5 days in the San Juan mountains with Nick and Joe in September 2023. I've been on a half dozen photography workshops in the last 4 years, from New Zealand to Patagonia to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and these two have been the best facilitators and leaders in terms of their ability to help me fine tune some of my techniques and introduce new methods and perspectives. They never tired in their efforts to get us to unique spots just at the right time to take advantage of the most optimum light conditions. They took us to spots in some challenging locations that few other photographers venture to and we were rewarded with some outstanding photos. I'll look forward hooking up with Nick and Joe on their Teton workshop next fall.Jim,Washington
  • The Glacier National Park workshop was an amazing learning experience and adventure. Joe and Nick were excellent guides and passionate mentors who helped me to improve my landscape photography skills. They found some great locations with beautiful landscape compositions. I was a first-timer to a workshop and manual photography, but they made me feel welcome and supported. They patiently answered all my questions and gave me helpful tips on how to improve my photos. Their patience, review, and feedback were invaluable to my learning and advancing my knowledge and skills. Aside from the wonderful scenery and practice, the days were filled with many laughs which made the adventure so enjoyable. I cannot wait to be able to attend another workshop location with them both, and I would highly recommend the experience to anyone who is interested in learning more about landscape photography.

  • Had an excellent experience with Joe and Nick at our Northern lights photography workshop this past March 2023. Both guys were really friendly and easy to work with, and really sacrificing of their own time to ensure all of us were getting what we needed to have a truly memorable adventure. Lots of assistance with camera settings (how and why) and tireless miles of driving to make every effort possible to catch Aurora opportunities Just as important as being put in position to capture the Northern Light, was their collective efforts in instilling a sense of team camaraderie We ate together, went on various excursions together, and all of this made the hundreds of miles driving feel like a fun family vacation, and not at all like two guys hauling "clients" around Just an excellent experience overall, and I wouldn't hesitate for a second to refer anyone their way for a week of purpose driven adventure and good times.Eric,Washington
  • What an awesome experience! Joe and Nick do a greatjob of not only finding places where you will get the best chance of seeing and capturing the Auroa Borealis but if that place doesn't work, they know where to head to to try and give you another shot at them. The other things that makes a Chasing Light Photo tours so unique in comparison to other workshops is Joe and Nick themselves! They enjoy taking you to places that you haven't been to before and their love for their craft means they want to pass their knowledge on to you but allow you the freedom to express that knowledge in your own way, they aren't trying to make you into another, "Nick Selway" or "Joe Garza" which why I love going with them on adventures.

  • The viewing of the northern lights has always held a great fascination for me and my wife. We’ve talked for years about going to view this magnificent spectacle of nature, however, like most photography workshops, I wanted to go with the best in the business. We have been on a couple that we're not quite what we expected. However, when I saw that my buddy Nick Selway along with Joe Garza were heading up a destination photo workshop to Alaska, I told my wife, now that's a trip we have got to take!My reasons were basically I have always admired Nicks photography skills for years so that was a no brainer. Viewing Joes expertise in photography with his attention to fine details regarding landscape photography were just over the top! Of course, it doesn't hurt that both of these guys will do what is necessary to get you exactly where you need to be during every shoot I cannot emphasize this enough. When shooting the northern lights, timing is everything and they made it a point to have us at the right place and right time every time! Certainly, one of the top photo workshops I have ever been on, and I have been on many. I would wholeheartedly recommend Nick and Joe for any and all workshops they plan. The best!~ Tim & Alina, South Carolina
  • I tremendously enjoyed the aurora workshop in Alaska earlier this year. Thank you for patiently showing me how to focus to infinity, instructing me to open my aperture setting to maximum in manual mode, suggesting settings for shutter speed and showing me how to eliminate camera shake. I appreciate how you took us to locations where light pollution was minimized and the beauty of the aurora was maximized. Since then, I have presented my images at two different camera club meetings, and I have received numerous compliments. Most of all, I got to meet some good people and we had fun, "snow or shine"!~ Brian, IndianaAlaska Northern Lights, 2022!
  • "October 2020 was a fantastic Nature Photography Workshop in the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Park with Light Chasing Photo Tours with Nick Selway and Joe Garza. Light and Wildlife chase we did sunrise, daylight, sunset and night photography. These two men are awesome. Extremely knowledgeable about the area, special spots, wildlife and the camera. Kind, courteous and always about YOU getting the shot! It was a fun week, learned lots about my camera, composition, special lighting and post-processing. I met a wonderful group of people. Here are just a few of my favorites from what I have done so far. Many thanks to Nick and Joe. Highly recommend them and their workshops and work!" Sheila-Indiana

  • "What a great trip to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National parks earlier this month. I participated in a nature photo workshop led by Nick Selway and Joe Garza, Light Chasing Photo Tours. These guys are great. Terrific instruction and guidance while making the week total FUN! To my new friends that joined and shared stories and nonstop laughs...hope to see you all on future trips."

  • "Nick and Joe did an amazing job of finding hidden, amazing places to photograph. It was immediately obvious to me that these guys are truly talented photographers as well as fantastic coaches and were more than willing to pass on their extensive knowledge. They both spent our time together teaching us how to improve our own photography skills including camera usage, composition, editing and all other phases in making beautiful photos. They really opened my eyes to a new level of expectations with my own work and how to achieve it. Our time together was filled with sunrises, sunsets, laughs and learning. I plan to do this again with them. I couldn't have asked for more and have a whole new group of lifetime friends! Can't wait for my next time! Thanks Joe & Nick!" Scott-Kansas
  • "It was absolutely wonderful to attend the Teton nature photography workshop mentored by Nick Selway and Joe Garza. Both are not only photographers, but are teachers, which is a task not many can do. Not all artists can explain the why's and how's of their work. I was very inspired by their knowledge, guidance and advice along with lots of humor! Both gave full efforts in teaching each and every person who attended. This experience pushed me in my photography to go further and try new things. Thank you for sharing your passion! I would recommend this and any workshop to everyone. I am already looking forward to another one in 2021!" Deanna-Wisconsin
  • Nick and Joe are not only great photographers but truly great guides and hosts. Each day was incredibly well thought out, interestingly varied, and an enthusiastic adventure. Nick and Joe may not be natives, but they know all of the best spots from white mountains, snow drooping trees, and the best Thai food north of 60 degrees. I cannot wait until my next tour with these two – it cannot happen soon enough Minhal-Austin,Texas
