Travel Experiences + Fine Art Photography

by David Gaiz

I am a travel & photography professional based in Long Beach, CA. Capturing the beauty of our planet - whether it's scenic vistas or intimate wildlife encounters are what I specialize in as a photographer. Alongside photography, I've spent most of my career working in the travel & hospitality industry. I've lead thousands of guests on trips to multiple continents. I build travel experiences for my clients - mainly photography based trips. I also build and operate custom trips for other photographers, private groups and companies large and small.

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.”-Mark Twain

“I'd like to thank David for organising such a seamless trip. He, got us to all the locations on time and adjusted the itinerary to take advantage of changing conditions - and with early snows, we had lots of changing conditions! However, it was the friendliness and ease with which Dave made everything happen that was so great. I've travelled with many photography groups and leaders over the years and David is up there with the very best! I'd have no hesitation working with him on another trip!”-Peter Eastway
