I've often wondered how to turn fantasy into reality. The answer is Michael Winsor. I along with two companions just completed an eight day tour in Newfoundland. The tour included sites in Gros Morne National Park, Twillingate, Steady Brook and Fogo Island. It was off-season and the weather was challenging. But MICHAEL made the trip a winning first class experience . Besides his patience, his people skills, his caring,Michael is a book of knowledge on the venues we visited. He selected the best photo shooting locations , the ideal camera settings for every situation, the best times to shoot depending on the location and conditions. Michael knows every nook and cranny of the country side better than the folks who live there . The experience was transporting and we are already discussing a follow up trip to a different part of NFLD next year . Michael is a gem of a person . I highly recommend Michael to anyone seeking a guide in NFLD. They don't come any better. Henry Gerstel

I just finished a photo tour of Newfoundland. Michael, the tour leader was absolutely amazing. He took myself and 2 of my friends around the west side of Newfoundland and then to Fogo Island and Twillingate. We crammed in 2 weeks of touring in 8 days but never felt rushed and he was always willing to help us with our photography and give us new ideas to try with great results. Michael was always in a good mood and patient. Although our visit was during off season he managed to show us how beautiful the land is and how warm and friendly the people who live are with everyone. We would not consider visiting Newfoundland unless we had Michael with us. If you have the opportunity to go on a photo tour of Newfoundland Newfoundland Photo tours and Michael are the best.

I thoroughly enjoyed the low light tour. Michael was great. He was very helpful and patient. He made a point to come around to each of us to assist. He’s a great teacher and encouraged us to try and figure out issues. He also showed us some nifty low light tricks. Michael also selected great locations for the shoot. I am from the area, but I had not been to these specific locations before so it was great having a new perspective from which to shoot. I would definitely love to go on another photo tour with him. He mentioned he might be organizing something for the Torngat Mountains in Labrador next year. I bet that would be incredible experience.

We took the 2 day tour with Michael with our friends as part of our visit to Newfoundland in mid June. We travelled to the Bonavista Peninsula chatting with Michael about Newfoundland. Even though the first day was foggy it was amazing what photos came out of this with Michael's guidance and encouragement. Our puffin experience was the best but be prepared to put on every layer of clothing you have this time of year. Michael even had some extra layers with him in case it was needed. We had various levels of photographic skills and one of us was there just to enjoy the views. Michael was up in the early morning for a sunrise tour for anyone interested in going. We did take a zodiac tour to see an iceberg and other scenery and it was certainly worth it. Michael was with us to provide advice of getting some excellent shots. We stayed at the newly opened Ellis House and it was great. Beautiful location and such warm hospitality. This 2 day tour was so much fun largely due to Michael's personable approach. We became so much more aware of what to look for and loved the unique places Michael took us. We appreciated Michael's passion for photography and his thoughtfulness and consideration on the 2 days. A very unique way of seeing Newfoundland.

I spent 5 days with Michael and came home with thousands of photographs. Michael was an excellent guide. He knows the tourist spots and the unique locations to find the wildlife of Newfoundland. Michael's photographic expertise takes you to the right locations at the right time of day to get the best photographs. All my expectations were exceeded! Wish I could do a repeat trip.
