The company typically encompasses groups of between 8 and 12 individuals for each exotic tour.
Joseph Mak, Founder & CEO of Unusual Expedition, is guided by passion for both photography and traveling. He enjoys discovering many of the greatest vistas around the world, and sharing that experience with others to capture the beautiful landscapes via the lens of a camera.
Joseph’s guiding principle is to “Respect the work of others, so that people will respect you. At the same time, at the same place, we will take wholly unique photographs, because you and I possess a unique purview on the world. Everyone has a different perspective of things, and each views the same subject matter differently. That is the joy of traveling and capturing the moment.”
Unusual Expedition has First Aid Certified and Tour Leader License Workshop instructors, insuring the comfort of its clients and always present to provide instruction and advice.
In addition, the company offers Photography Learning Workshops in Adobe Lightroom and other disciplines, from its base in Singapore, and around the region.
