Vaughn Hart traveled with Art to Japan last month. To see more of his photos visit http://picasaweb.google.com/vaughnhart

“Traveling to Japan with Art was a trip I had been wishing to do ever since I saw his Travels to the Edge show on Japan several years ago. This trip exceeded my expectations. Traveling with Art, Gavriel, and our Japanese guides was simply outstanding. It was the hardest trip I have taken as we had to get up around 3 AM many nights to get to our location for sunrise. It was all worth it in the end. We got spectacular light and I feel I made some of my best images on this trip. Our timing for this trip was very fortunate. I arrived after the volcano erupted and left just a few weeks before the earthquake. I really got to see Japan at its best. The people were happy and extremely friendly and helpful. I also feel Art was an outstanding teacher who worked tirelessly everyday to help improve all of our photography.”

Alan Sund traveled to Japan with Art Wolfe in February. Here are his thoughts on the experience as well as a few photos.

A wonderful experience! I’ve been a fan of Travels to the Edge for years – and this was great to finally go along with Art to see where and how so many wonderful images were taken, to experience it on a truly personal basis, to learn from the absolute best about how to improve my own wildlife, cultural, and landscape photography, and to practice each day from before dawn until after dusk. And add on top of that, each evening, Art’s excellent lectures and feedback on participants’ images. BTW… the behind the scenes planning was flawless (Art has a great crew). Best part of the trip??? I got to wear Art’s famous wool cap!!! The only way to top this would be to go on multiple tours with Art and Gavriel. Thanks guys!
