Over thirteen days, we travelled to some of the most spectacular scenery in southeastern China – from the Yellow Mountains (Huang Shan) to the rice terraces of Yuan Yang to the Li River, near Guilin. We all came back with images that we are very happy with. I, for one, am ready to go back again, especially to the Yellow Mountains. Though we were able to catch glimpses of rural life in the hill tribe communities, it is obvious that China is changing and modernizing much faster than any of us expected. The time is approaching when it will be difficult to find the "old" China at all. This has been a wonderful experience that was greatly enriched by the instruction and guidance we received from both Art and Jay. These guys are masters. - Michael Rainwater
Traveling to Japan with Art was a trip I had been wishing to do ever since I saw his Travels to the Edge show on Japan several years ago. This trip exceeded my expectations. Traveling with Art, Gavriel, and our Japanese guides was simply outstanding. It was the hardest trip I have taken as we had to get up around 3 AM many nights to get to our location for sunrise. It was all worth it in the end. We got spectacular light and I feel I made some of my best images on this trip. Our timing for this trip was very fortunate. I arrived after the volcano erupted and left just a few weeks before the earthquake. I really got to see Japan at its best. The people were happy and extremely friendly and helpful. I also feel Art was an outstanding teacher who worked tirelessly everyday to help improve all of our photography. - Vaughn Hart

It didn't take me long to realize I was the least experienced of the group and to somewhat, panicked! But my worries were to become non-existent as Art helped me in the field and everyone else on the trip, including Gavriel, pitched in to help me learn more about Lightroom-3 and processing my photos. In the end I learned more on this trip then I have in all the other educational classes I have taken. There is something about riding along on a bus for two hours beside a new friend that is taking the time to show you, on your laptop, how to process your photos for that nights critique. I didn't even feel bad during the critique as Art pointed out my good points and only what he thought I might do with the photos to improve them. I went home extremely happy as I knew I was now set up to do a much better job of photographing and processing my pictures. I am also signed up for the China trip and can't wait to try out my new photographic abilities with Art and a new group of what will soon become friends. I had a total blast!! - Becky Jones
A wonderful experience! I've been a fan of Travels to the Edge for years – and this was great to finally go along with Art to see where and how so many wonderful images were taken, to experience it on a truly personal basis, to learn from the absolute best about how to improve my own wildlife, cultural, and landscape photography, and to practice each day from before dawn until after dusk. And add on top of that, each evening, Art's excellent lectures and feedback on participants' images. BTW… the behind the scenes planning was flawless (Art has a great crew). Best part of the trip??? I got to wear Art's famous wool cap!!! The only way to top this would be to go on multiple tours with Art and Gavriel. Thanks guys! - Alan Sund
Art Wolfe, Gavriel Jecan, Jay Goodrich and Rich Reid led a group of 13 participants into Grand Teton National Park. Their focus was not on the iconic locations most travel to, but to the lesser known areas, to produce imagery that pushed the boundaries of their artistic expression. Here are some of this group's images.
