Join me, Frederick Van Johnson and Top Travel Spot for a 7-day photography workshop in magical Yucatan, Mexico. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to travel to Mexico at a fraction of the cost.

Where? Yucatan, Mexico!
When? April 4-11, 2016!

This really is the trip of a lifetime, a luxury adventure to the Mexican state of Yucatán! Known for its Gulf of Mexico beaches, cenotes, crystal clear sinkholes and fantastic Mayan ruins. You will come back with amazing photos from each day you spend in this wonderful region.

The Agenda

Our adventure takes us to see ancient pyramids after hours with our own private tour guide, a biosphere with pink flamingos, crystal clear cenotes, charming historic town centers with incredible food and authentic local culture.

Yucatán blends ancient Maya and Aztec culture with the stunning architecture of the Spanish colonial period.

One of our excursions takes us to Izamal, known as the city of three cultures: pre-Hispanic,colonial and modern. The city is a visual feast: nearly every structure is painted egg yolk yellow, providing a thoroughly unique aesthetic.

Our nightly home will be Casa de los Artistas, an incredible space for relaxing, from the lily pond in the center of the house to the swimming pool in the rear courtyard, the garden terrace, and the roof-top lounge, an ideal perch for a night of stargazing.

Join myself and Top Travel Spot as they launch their new travel photography brand in beautiful sunny Mexico.

Thoughts from one happy workshop participant:

“So we took the jump into the mentorship and I can say without exaggeration that it was the best investment we’ve ever made for our business. Jonathan helped us with everything, from our portfolio and website, to our pricing scheme and to our logistics on wedding days. He pushed our photography to a point that I didn’t know was even possible. Our business has grown tremendously to the point we’re booking clients at twice the rate for twice the price.”
