Photograph colorful hot air balloons as they fly over scenic vineyards. We'll start with a short photography lesson. Then, I'll help you find the best camera angles and you’ll snap stunning images of balloons launching, landing, and dipping into one spectacular spot after another. We'll finish with some fresh-roasted coffee as we'll critique each others photographs. Please prepare yourself in substituting our "hot-air-balloon chasing" (not a ride) for making photographs of scenic area of Napa Valley due to weather. Note: if weather does "ground" the hot-air-balloons we will first stop at a bakery for coffee and then head north while the sun rises over colorful vineyards. We will continue north through the picturesque town of St Helena to finally the Castello di Amorosa, a 13th century inspired Tuscan castle and winery. We will conclude our journey south in traveling the famous Silverado Trail, a scenic route that travels along the eastern edge of the Napa Valley. Please be prompt to this event as balloons wait for no one, 1-415-215-3813.

We'll explore the hidden photographic treasures of the Napa Valley. The wind will ultimately dictate where our adventure takes us as we chase the balloons across the sky. This is not a hot-air-balloon ride, we chase balloons throughout the valley.

The hot air balloon did not go up as expected because of very low clouds. Our plan B to the vineyards and the Castillo de Amorosa in Calistoga was a treat. Fred and his scout, Jeff, were very good to help us make a good day out it. It was a nice outing with good people learning to get photos.

Balloon chasing! That was ridiculously fun. Now I know that I don't need caffeine at 6 AM to do whatever it takes to get cool shots :) Definitely recommend this one.

It was an amazing experience chasing colorful hot air balloons as the sun is rising. You get a unique experience of taking pictures of these balloons before sunrise where they light up like divas in the sky and after sunrise you can photograph color sun brings out of these balloons.

Frederic is an amazing guide and very friendly. He knew exactly where to go and get the best view of the balloons. He took us in his car chasing the balloons. Thanks to him for an amazing experience.
