Open and Opening Soon Trips

Teams will travel to developing countries and work alongside a local non-profit organization for the betterment of the cause they champion and community they work in. TGL Leaders are professional photographers with travel experience, and are equipped to guide you through the country, into the culture, and far beyond your expectations. From workshops at locations many will only dream of, to helping in a tangible and needed way with the NGO, each trip is a unique adventure that will be a journey of a lifetime for every participant.

TGL: Nicaragua

July 2016

Nicaragua is topping “Must Visit” lists for 2016, and for good reason! An incredible place, full of breathtaking landscapes and even more beautiful people. We will partner once again with our amazing local NGO here in Granada, Empowerment International, who work one-on-one with impoverished children and at-risk youth to keep them in school – from home visits to tutoring programs to a variety of clubs to keep the kids interested and involved. One of those clubs is an amazing Photography Club! These kids are incredible, extremely talented, and we will come alongside them to work on local projects and further their amazing efforts in this field. This is one of our flagship trips and we keep returning for a reason – join us!

TGL: Tanzania

August 2016

Tanzania. The Maasai. The Serengeti. If you grew up reading National Geographic under the covers, these names probably drum up a whole realm of childhood dreams. Let’s make those dreams a real life adventure! We are so excited to be partnering again with Excel Education Fund, a grassroots organization getting underprivledged youths into school, and Mkombozi, where street and at-risk youth in Tanzania can come to receive skills training in all many different areas – from sewing to computers to tourism. We’ll also be visiting our partnering Maasai village to learn about life today for the maasai, and visit their unique school, deliver portraits from last year. Not to mention, a three day safari!

TGL: Morocco

October 2016

Medinas, souks, colors, textures, fabulous food, and the largest market in Africa can all be found in Marrakech, Morocco. We’ll be wandering the winding, cobbled streets at all different times of day, playing with street photography, details, candid moments, and even portraits. And we’ll be doing it alongside some amazing local Moroccan youths connected to our partner NGO, El Fenn – with whom we established a photography program just one year ago. We can’t wait to go back and further this awesome initiative! After a few incredible days in Marrakech, we’ll carve through the High Atlas Mountains, stay in a real Kasbah, and finally arrive to the iconic Sahara desert for two nights of shooting sunrises, sunsets, and the phenomenal night sky!
