Vermont Photo Tours

We love photography. We love cameras. We love Vermont!

We have spent years exploring Vermont’s back roads in search of the most unique and picturesque locations, most which are off the beaten-trail and are kept secret by locals.

Vermont Photo Tours was founded by Steve Mermelstein and is a marriage of Steve’s passion for photography with his love for Vermont. He’ll share these secret locations, and Vermont’s magnificent wildlife and scenery with you.

Steve’s award-winning photography has appeared in magazines, newspapers, calendars, ads, and web sites. In 2013 and 2014, Samsung USA named Steve one of the Top 50 US Photographers and contracted him as a Samsung Imagelogger.

Capture the beauty of Vermont while learning how to take better pictures.

Having decades of experience working as a photographer, in all types of conditions, Steve knows the tricks of the trade – and how to keep photography simple for his guests – no matter their skill or equipment level. Over the years Steve has also become an expert Vermont Guide. He’ll show you the most breathtaking scenery and the true beauty of Vermont on our Personalized and Private Workshops.

Vermont Photography Workshops and Photography Tours

“Right now, photography is just a hobby but I have big dreams of making it more than that someday. I received a private session with Steve as a Christmas gift and I have to say the experience far exceeded my expectations! Steve is a VT expert and not only catered to my photography interests and took us to the best places for beautiful photos, but I had just as much fun learning about the history of the places we visited. It’s a full day of hands-on experience and it left me feeling energized and excited to try out some of the new techniques I learned! Whether photography is just a hobby or you’re a professional looking for new scenery, Steve caters to your interests, experience and camera (even iPhones!) and you won’t be disappointed spending a day with him and Vermont Photo Tours. As a bonus, we were visiting from out of state and he had some excellent dining recommendations, too! We visited in the winter and can’t wait to see what beauty VT has to offer in the warmer weather. Steve will be hearing from us again!”

“Thank you for giving us a chance to see and photograph the beautiful scenery even though the autumn colors were not yet at their peak.”
