Southern Cypress Swamps
Trip Overview
Deep in the southern United States lies an incredible connection of bayous, swampland, and wetlands. Often overlooked by photographers, these interconnected waterways provided some of the best and most unique fall photography anywhere.

The bayous in Texas and Louisiana are lined with cypress groves laced with Spanish Moss. In November, the groves ignite into a fiery red and orange, creating an amazing display for photographers.

But, that’s not all. The southern climate provides exquisite conditions in fall. Ambient air temperatures occasionally drop below water temperatures, giving way to spectacular fog and mist! We break it down into a simple formula: absolutely unique landscape + gorgeous fall color + atmospheric fog = world-class photography.

This photo workshop is boat-based, as it’s the best way to see fall color in the cypress swamps. A private boat allows us to chase the best conditions and cover a lot of water – the bayou is an expansive area with much to explore.

Join Backcountry Journeys for this extremely unique photography experience. On this 5-day photo workshop, we will lead you to one of the true ‘hidden gems’ in the United States.

  • A Great Expereince!

    What a great experience! The trip was well-organized from start to finish. Great photography locations from deep jungle to beach to river boat to night hikes. The schedule kept us busy but never hectic, and the accommodations were super comfortable. Shout out to our guide Ben - we saw so much wildlife! I'd highly recommend a trip with them.


  • In October I traveled with BCJ to Joshua Tree Natl Park for their night sky photography trip. This was my third trip with BCJ and I just reserved another trip. I keep coming back to this company because of the great experiences I'm having. I love the small groups and excellent guides. 


  • This was my first trip with Backcountry Journeys. It was excellent, and I have since booked two more trips. The itinerary, and the guides were excellent.
