THE BEST GROUP AND PRIVATE PHOTOGRAPHY TOURS OF THE PALOUSE
"Teri Lou did a stellar job of juggling everyone's wishes and expectations with the practical logistics of guiding a diverse group around a vast area for the 4 day workshop. She's so cheerful and obliging and really knows her stuff. If you really want to squeeze the max out of the hours you have and be at the right place for the time of day and weather conditions (as far as humanly possible), Teri is definitely your "go-to girl". I had a blast. ” ~Vanessa
During this tour we will photograph the entire process in the fields, while riding in combines and tractors, and at visits to the storage silos and grain elevators.
Along with the farm visits we will capture many other 'Palouse Treasures' along the way taking advantage of the changing light and cloud formations throughout the day.
Harvest is a time when farmers, hired hands and seasonal truck drivers are in full swing. This season provides photographers the opportunity to capture amazing patterns in the fields, dust billowing behind combines, and up close and personal vantage points during farm visits. The farmers have a large variety of equipment to bring their golden crops of wheat, barley, peas, lentil and garbs to market.

“Teri Lou is a brilliant photographer and joy to tour with. Her enthusiasm and knowledge of the Palouse makes taking incredible images easy and fun.”
- Dewitt Jones, retired National Geographic Photographer
What to Expect - Typical Tour:
The first day starts at 3:00pm with introductions, discussion of the area and what to expect.That evening we continue to get acquainted during a group dinner at a local restaurant, then wrap up the day shooting sunset at a favorite location.
For the next three days we will start early in the morning sometimes before sunrise to capture the golden dawn and end after capturing a spectacular sunset. Since many days start at 4:30am and end at 9:30pm there is an afternoon break for naps, meals, processing and a photo sharing presentation.
On the last day we arise early to capture a local favorite sunrise location and then sneak in a couple more barns and fields before returning at the hotel about 9am giving plenty of time for breakfast, packing and goodbyes.
"Teri Lou really, really knows the Palouse. If you want to get into the nooks and crannies of this fascinating region, and see the backroads vistas that you won't find by yourself, book a tour with Teri Lou. I bet you'll be as thrilled by the images you take home as I was with mine!" - Dani Salvadori
With Teri Lou I got more than I could have ever hoped for. She is not just a guide who brings in tours once a year but comes many times a year and has done so for a lot longer than the Palouse has been the "latest photographer’s dream area" to shoot.
And Teri Lou does not just come to the Palouse. She immerses herself into the area and the people in it. I learned about the land, farming. We were even able to sit down and have dinner with her good friend Rod (a farmer in the Palouse) and I was given the great luxury to meet one of the most decent, open and humble men I have ever met.
Thank you Teri. It was a most special journey and I more than gladly recommend Teri as the guide of choice for the Palouse. And I look forward to our continuing friendship." ~ Richard
