Custom, bespoke travel opportunities cultivated from over 15 years of exploration
As a photographer traveling the world to photograph the most extraordinary people, places, and animals, I’ve had the privilege of logging countless days among the most remarkable locations on Earth.
Along the way, I’ve amassed an expansive network of guides, top lodges, and local contacts and have discovered favored locations allowing me to create my award-winning, globally-collected fine art photography.
These are life-changing experiences that stay with you long beyond your return home.
This is why I am offering a few opportunities to travel with me to some of these destinations each year. These locations are some of the most desired places in the world, filled with the most remarkable animals and landscapes.
Whether you are a photographer or interested in spending time among our most spectacular places on Earth, my expeditions are created to give you intimate and unique experiences.
1. Kenya (Only 4 Spaces Left)
Kenya is home to some of the most incredible wildlife on Earth, making it the perfect destination for anyone who wants to immerse themselves in East Africa’s spectacular wild landscape while in a small group setting.
In Rwanda, we will embark on once-in-a-lifetime treks into the Virungas to see the mountain gorillas in their surreal, natural habitat. This is available as a pre-trip extension before traveling to Kenya.
During this itinerary, you’ll explore the wild expanses of Tanzania, encountering some of the most memorable African wildlife during one of the most exciting, fascinating, and lively times of the year.
The Norwegian Arctic landscape offers one of the most stunning natural experiences in the world. From polar bears to glaciers to whales, you will immerse yourself in the beauty of this surreal territory aboard a small, intimate expedition boat under the midnight sun. Contact Lily if you want to be on the list when bookings open again.
During the annual salmon run, a record number of black bears descend on Katmai National Park on the Alaskan peninsula. You’ll access this remote swath of land via float plane to photograph intimate encounters with black bears of all shapes and sizes.
The Okavango Delta is home to animals of all kinds, many of which are endangered. It is one of only a few places on Earth where you can find storied animals, such as white and black rhinoceros, cheetahs, lions, elephants, and more, all in one location.

"I’ve traveled on multiple trips with Drew, resulting in outstanding photos, and have received incredible feedback from sharing them. Photographing wildlife is all about access and proximity. Drew’s images and guided expeditions repeatedly demonstrate his ability to not just ‘take images but to create them,’ as he says, by drawing on his years of experience and relationships within the industry. As our photographic guide, Drew was excellent. He was open about all aspects of photography and always willing to sit and go through images, discuss composition, work through edits, or chat about what makes a great image. His discussions about creating feelings and emotions in photos were also constructive, and I know I improved my photography. Last but not least, I can confidently say that these were the trips of a lifetime. I had so much fun."
I've always wanted to see the Arctic landscape. When I was a child, the Arctic was exotic- almost unbelievable, and I felt that if I didn't see it, it wasn't really there. Joining Drew Doggett on this trip, even if I wasn’t attending for the purpose of photography, was a privilege I hope I can repeat. It was a small ship catered to the photographers on board, and I enjoyed the views that their needs and interests required since Drew knew exactly which views would enhance the group's photos and when the light was at its best. An opportunity to travel with Drew, as a photographer or not, is a fantastic experience I hope to have again.
"I wasn’t planning on doing a huge trip last summer…and I am so grateful I did! I walked away with some of the more surreal and incredible memories of my life and also some of the best photographs I have ever taken. The editing sessions with Drew really helped me take some amazing images and push them to their potential. I am so proud of the work I captured, but the process of editing them after and hearing his thoughts on which photos to choose, why, and what to do with them to take them to the next level was invaluable to me.
In addition to the experience itself being like something out of a dream—it would be great even if you weren’t a photographer! Learning from Drew is something I hope I will get a chance to do again."
