For me, there is nothing better than packing up the camera gear and heading off to an amazing destination to photograph with others who share a passion for photography. It is no exaggeration to say that I am absolutely thrilled to announce a series of photography tours and workshops starting in late 2016 to some incredible destinations. Photo tours are fun, inspirational, challenging, rewarding, tiring and exhilarating all at the same time. My commitment to you is to work hard to get you to the great locations, to bring home the best images you can, and to help you improve your photography along the way. Although photography is the top priority, I also work hard to make sure the trip is both enjoyable and comfortable.

Why book with me? You have probably already looked over my galleries. However, in making a decision on a photo tour, you want to go with someone who has significant travel experience, the ability to teach and communicate well, and a strong commitment to making the tour a success. I’ve spent 5 years of my life traveling to more than 80 countries on 6 continents, generally arranging all of my own logistics. I’ve also spent time leading, teaching and training others during my 21-year career in international development. I go beyond just providing help with composition, but also spend considerable time demonstrating post-processing techniques. Come on a tour and there are no secrets to my processing work… I’ll teach you what I know and answer any questions you have, whether related to portraits, human element images, or landscapes.

I hope to see you on a tour soon! As always, please feel free to contact me anytime with questions.

"We just returned from the Carnival in Venice trip 2017 led by Ken Koskela and Renee Doyle and it was the best photo trip we have ever been on. We have been on many photography trips around the world and this one was the best organized and learning experience ever. Ken and Renee were responsive from the first contact and after the trip ended. We have been on several trips where we came away thinking we just paid to give the leader a photo trip--not with Ken and Renee- they helped with camera settings -composition and lighting advice at every location. They had models programmed to meet with us at every location as well... We are already looking forward to our next trip with these two consummate fun to be with professionals."

- Ed and Bernadette S.

"This was a very well organized and well prepared workshop. It was the best workshop I have ever attended... I learned and experienced a great deal at this workshop, and completely enjoyed it. I plan to attend other workshops that they put on, independent or joint. My thanks to them for a very special experience and great memories."

- Barbara and Bill S.

"I highly recommend a workshop with Ken and Renee. Attending their 2017 Venice program, I was impressed by both of them as tour leaders and organizers, for their friendliness, helpfulness and willingness to share their experiences, tips and secrets to creating better images. Their established relationships with several of the exceptional models who attend each year meant our group had several very unique private and semi-private shoots pre-arranged in great locations (both indoors and outside) away from the massive tourist crowds. The small group size (10 photographers) was a great bonus, making it easy to interact with Ken and Renee whenever needed. I would happily attend again."

- Chris B.

"Ken has a real gift for imparting his personal, superb photographic skills through inspiring, step by step disciplines that greatly assist in turning a vision of a scene into pixel reality.  His mentoring is tops.... be it through the glass or in post processing, where I've come to value his workflow of additive incremental steps producing dramatic yet realistic results."

- Lou L.

"The experience gained on my trip was priceless as I learnt so much not just out on the shoots but in the photoshop sessions as well. We got to each location to shoot at the perfect time and thats because so much preparation has been taken to choose accommodation close to each location to cut on travelling time to maximise shooting time. They set the bar high and I can throughly recommend a workshop with them and I look forward to attending another one in the future."

- Jannene M.

"This tour was fantastic, very well organised, the accommodations were excellent and I learnt so much. Even about cloud formations!!!!! Both Ken and Renee are experts in their field. I would not hesitate in recommending any of Renee or Ken’s photo workshops to anyone that is considering attending one."
