I first contacted Moe back in March for information about when would be the best time to see Icebergs, and possibly whales. He sent a very detailed and informative email. When the trip became a reality, with a few phone calls and emails. Moe was patient, gave so much information with an itinerary that we agreed would be subject to change based on weather conditions. It was a great week of being able to see an iceberg, puffins. He was also so helpful when we encountered a small hiccup upon arrival, he stayed with us and took us to a few other locations. All worked out well. Will stay out to catch that light.. So dont hesitate to contact Moe.

Thank you for the feedback Gail. You came for the icebergs and whales but I think it was the puffins that captured your heart in the end. Safe travels. Moe

I learned a great deal from Moe as he shared his expertise and knowledge of photographing lighthouses and the rugged coastline. He taught me how to use nature to frame my photo. It was an excellent and worthwhile experience.

Maurice (Moe) was incredibly helpful, and the photo tour we went on (Lighthouses of Avalon) was nothing short of exceptional. When you’re planning to spend 8 hours (or more, depending on the tour) with a guide, that guide is just as important as the places you intend to visit. It was a pleasure to have Moe lead our party through the locations we chose, and it was clear that he knew each one like his own backyard. He excelled at offering creative and technical suggestions without pressure or ego to detract from the experience, and he let us set the pace for the expedition and while guiding us to areas he thought worth special attention.
Moe is an affable, knowledgeable, and dynamic professional who can carry a conversation and follow one with equal grace. His photography and leadership instincts are right on the mark, and he has tireless energy and a warmth of spirit that made the tour the highlight of our time in Newfoundland. If you are considering a photography tour, you can’t go wrong choosing Far East Photography Tours.

Maurice of Far East Photography Tours led me on the best photo tour imaginable. I asked for a custom tour and Maurice was so helpful and shared such interesting information about Newfoundland and St. John's. I cannot recommend him more highly.

Awesome photo tour with Moe for sunrise at Cape Spear. Expert guidance for getting great photos and for suggesting best camera settings. His knowledge of the area and photography was exceptional. He has a very easy going character and is very supportive in his guidance. Would highly recommend Moe for any photo tour in NL.

We contacted Maurice for a tour when we were in Saint Johns mid-November. The day was blustery and rainy so Maurice adjusted the day for us and it was brilliant. The waves, the coastal towns and the tour over all was well worthwhile! Maurice is an interesting individual with a wealth of information about both Saint Johns and the province. He is a great story teller and we enjoyed every minute. My partner picked up some great tips and once we returned to the west coast we viewed some fabulous photos from the day. Highly recommend this tour!

Maurice was an awesome guide, very friendly and knowledgeable, not only about photography, but also about the history and culture of the places we visited. He made a cold, windy day really fun for us, and I was very grateful for the advice he gave me for taking awesome shots. I will highly recommend this tour to my other photographer friends and will most likely book it again next time we travel to St. John's!

Maurice and I went around the St Johns area in the late afternoon evening to capture the sights. This was personalised based on the images and style I wanted to shoot. He showed me many tips and tricks, and if we didn’t have time to go somewhere that day, Maurice drove me past or pointed out other good locations I could capture myself in the following days. Easy to chat to, knowledgeable and interesting. I would definitely do a tour with Maurice again. Thank you!

Moe is brilliant. This is one of the best tours I have done. Moe is knowledgeable and a great conversationalist. He gave us great tips and took us to great places to take photos. We saw places in and around St Johns we would have never have found ourselves.
Moe is a fabulous ambassador of the province.
I can not recommend this tour highly enough.
In addition he was on time, considerate and more than helpful

Without doubt the best thing to do in St Johns whether you are an avid photographer or not. Moe is knowledgeable about the local attractions and has great stories and is an amazing professional photographer happy to share tips and provide inspiration. Don’t worry if you only have a point & shoot, Moe will be able to help and of course if you are a serious photographer you will be in great hands. Cannot recommend this tour highly enough. Thanks Moe, I really enjoyed your hospitality and the best 4 hrs in St Johns.
