Palouse Country Photo Tours

Custom, Private, & Night Photo Tours & Workshops In The Palouse

With the growing number of groups offering photo tours or workshops to the Palouse, ask yourself, "What do you want out of a Palouse photo tour?" and carefully consider the following before making your selection:

  • How well does the tour leader know the area?
  • Where is the tour leader from? (I bet not the Palouse).
  • How many days does the tour leader personally photograph the Palouse each year?
  • Does the tour leader scout the Palouse before each scheduled tour?
  • How many photo tours have the leader conducted on the Palouse?
  • Where does the tour leader take you? 
  • What is the group size of the photo tour (more than 8)?
  • How many hours does the tour group spend in the field photographing the Palouse?
  • Does the photo tour leader break away from the group to capture their own images?
  • Carefully review feedback to see how former clients describe their experience.

The advantage of a Palouse Country Photo Tours/Workshops

Palouse Country Photo Tours will take you to photo sites that the other guys miss. Most other Palouse photo tours are designed and led by people who have never lived in the region and/or are not knowledgeable of the area. Their tours only stop at the most common sites and don't get into the heart of the Palouse country, where often the most exceptional photographic opportunities await.

Palouse Country Palouse Photo Tour leader Jack Lien has lived on and photographed the Palouse for over 40 years. He's discovered countless photographic opportunities throughout the region and has gained access to private land, nostalgic buildings, and landscape that is either unknown or off limits to others. Jack will get you into the heart and soul of the land and its people, and you'll have abundant opportunities to photograph historic buildings, barns, windmills, vintage trucks, and landscapes. You may also have the opportunity to meet and photograph area farmers preparing their equipment for a long day in the field.

Wheatland Farm: Palouse Country Photo Tours/Workshops is based out of our Wheatland Farm located 6 miles east of Colfax in the heart of the Palouse. Wheatland farm provides an ideal setting to conduct field instruction. Situated in our field are several iconic photo subjects/props that include a windmill, barn, two antique tractors (1927 and 1941), two original freight wagons (100+ years old), 1942 International wheat truck, 1936 Ford truck, 1949 Chevy truck, and numerous farm implements. These items are strategically placed to capture stunning images at sunrise, sunset, and the Milky Way overhead after dark.

We do our homework

The quality of every Palouse Country Photo Tour is important to us, so, before each photo tour, we map out and drive hundreds of miles, checking the routes of our tour to ensure maximum photographic opportunity for our participants.

We'll also check in with a number of local farmers to see who is working their land, check on the maturity of the crops, find where crop dusters are flying, locate areas with wildlife, and identify alternative photo opportunities and locations in the case of inclement weather.
