National Geographic offers a variety of ways to improve your photography skills with the guidance of a National Geographic photographer. All of our photography programs are designed for amateur photographers of all levels interested in improving their skills.
On our photography expeditions and active photography adventures, you'll learn tips and techniques while exploring picturesque places with a National Geographic photographer. Our weeklong photography workshops and weekend photography workshops cater to those who seek more intensive instruction and include photo assignments in the field, talks on technique, and edit-and-critique sessions. National Geographic photography seminars are one-day courses held in cities all over the U.S. that cover a broad range of topics. And our new online courses—available on DVD and by online streaming or download—offer engaging presentations on technique by an award-winning National Geographic photographer.
Also, all voyages aboard the National Geographic fleet are accompanied by a certified photo instructor, and a National Geographic photographer joins every expedition aboard the National Geographic Explorer and National Geographic Orion.
