Shop Great Lakes Photo Tours: The expertise and advice essential to capturing Northern Michigan’s most picturesque places on film
As guides with Great Lakes Photo Tours, Bob Grzesiak and Mark S. Carlson lead clients through Northern Michigan to capture the area’s beautiful landscapes on film. With 35 years of photography experience Up North, Carlson and Grzesiak manage to surprise even long-time locals with their knowledge of the area: “We’ll guide people who have lived in Northern Michigan their whole lives who say, ‘I’ve never seen anything like this!’” says Grzesiak.
Grzesiak and Carlson are quick to cite Northern Michigan’s ecological diversity as the source of the area’s camera-ready quality. Their Michigan Gold 2014 Calendar spotlights some of the picturesque destinations—the Sleeping Bear Dunes, Leelanau and Old Mission Peninsulas, the Upper Peninsula—to which Grzesiak and Carlson lead photographers of all skill levels on their tours. Says Grzesiak: “People say that they don’t have a nice enough camera to join our tours, but even a point-and-shoot camera can capture great images. We can show you where and how to do that.”
Northern Michigan’s four seasons offer photographers limitless opportunities: the dappled waters of Lake Michigan during the summer, or spring’s endless orchards of flowering cherry trees, or the mosaic of auburns and oranges in the autumn forests, or winter’s brilliant, snowy…well, you get the idea. “There’s always something to shoot,” says Grzesiak, “and that’s why we’ve been coming to Northern Michigan for all these years.”
Tours vary in length—from a few hours to several days—and location of interest.
