I am about to pull the lever on a photography tour across the USA.. Shooting I think 25 models who is also from around the world.. Meet them and photograph them

So let's tell the world where are you going to shoot in 2024..
 
I'd rather tour the US for natural and cultural experiences, but you do you.

The reality is that current economic factors will only allow for weekend getaways for my wife and I,
if even at all. I'd also love to travel internationally, but that is prohibitively expensive to our means.
 
I might have a couple of business trips this year- Poland and perhaps Singapore and China. I hope I'll have time in those places.
 
Alaskan cruise in June. I came out of retirement to teach one more year to pay for this trip. Kids have really changed since I last taught school. Hope putting up with the little heathens is worth it!
 
I hope so, nothing planned but I did want to get down to one of the Galveston bird sanctuaries before they all migrate back north. I have so many things on my list, just no time. :)
 
I'm making plans to be part of the madness that is the Total Solar Eclipse. It's a two and a half day drive each direction for four and half minutes of one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen.
 
Not really a tour per se, but I'm scheduling myself to shoot one race a month. My niche is 4x4 off-road racing and there's races both in Ca and NV that I can go and shoot pics at. Some will be a one day there and back where as a few will involve driving to a remote course in NV and camping for a weekend. Looking forward to it.
 
As for now my next photography goal is the 2025 Gatornationals, money is tight right now which everyone here understands, I want to stay in a nice place which is pricey, plus I would like to grab some decent seats.

Last time I went there we bought seats in the pressbox which is a second floor room right behind the starting line, they where what I considered expensive but looking back well worth the money, air conditioned, free drinks and access to the roof.

A real great way to see and capture the event.

We have a local race track out here that has some form of oval racing, they run some really beat up cars and literally have no problem of knocking competitors out of the way..

It was fun to watch but just as the sun was setting the place filled up with millions of mosquitoes and we got out of there real fast. .

Yeah, that can get tiring. Fortunately, many of these races are in the desert in either the spring or the fall, some are short course and the others are larger courses which allows us to drive from point to point. The downside is that a couple are dead in the middle of summer and sitting out there in the 90-100 degree heat all day is a bit rough.
 
Planning on going on a photo trip to the CM Russell National Wildlife Refuge next fall.
 
Not a photography tour only but we are going to Northern Scotland in Sept/2024. It will not be the hiking tours we have done the last three years, more of a hike if you want or just do day tours and sightseeing. We are getting too old for the 13-20 km/day hikes. We will be based in North Ballachulish just outside Glencoe for a week. We are trying to figure out where we will spend another week either before Scotland or after. We are definitely lucky to be able to do trips like this. We also have to get to South Carolina to see our grandkids (and their parents) sometime after New Years and before Scotland.

I am at home in Washington now. I had planned to travel to Minnesota for boreal bird species in January, and to Arizona for Gila Monsters this March. BUT ..... this fall I had to put a LOT of money into my aging car, so I may not get to do either of those trips.

I will go back to Pennsylvania in early May and stay there for at least 6 weeks, because my brother will have some work for me. On the way to PA I hope to spend several days in Ohio to photograph warblers, either the Magee Marsh and/or a state forest in southern Ohio.

While in Pennsylvania, I will travel to the Poconos for day trips to photograph warblers, and to Ocean City, New Jersey to photograph various species of wading birds at a large rookery - Ibis, Herons, and Egrets. I'll also make a few outings for reptiles and amphibians.

On my trip back across the country, if I have extra money, I will detour down to Georgia to search for and photograph reptiles and amphibians, down to the southernmost point of Texas for songbirds, and definitely to the Sonoran Desert in southern Arizona for reptiles. This would most likely be in late June, July, or early August. Would prefer for the trip from PA back to WA to take 4 or 5 weeks ..... but that all depends on how much I can earn while in PA working.

Then of course in November I will travel to photograph Whitetail Deer during their mating season as I do every year. Not sure exactly where I will go because this upcoming fall it looks like several different areas may have a number of big bucks - Montana, Colorado, Minnesota, Virginia, Ohio, and Tennessee. If I'm nearly broke I'll settle for my typical Colorado / Montana trip, but if I have enough money then I will go to Minnesota and/or Virginia and/or Tennessee after Colorado.

This is my son and his family's fourth year in Mumbai for work, and this year I was there for a month in the spring and a month in the fall, but I was sick for almost three weeks during my fall visit, so I was mostly confined to apartment. I want to go there again in 2024 and look outside Mumbai, probably to the south - Goa, Kerala, but I'm also tempted by northern India.

It’s a huge country and to do it justice, you need to go to each region separately as you mention. PM me if you want some more information on India. I know the country quite well.
