About us

International photography tours

We are Shuttermoon, a travel photography tour brand for adventurous photographers. Our journey began in 2016 with the idea of combining our love for travel photography and adventure. With over a decade of experience in travel photography and tourism, our founder Jan Miřacký has handcrafted each photography tour to offer our clients a unique and unforgettable experience.

We believe every photo can be a piece of art and strive to capture the essence of every destination we visit through our lenses.

Our founder Jan Miřacký has extensive knowledge and experience in travel photography and tourism. With his passion for both, he created Shuttermoon to allow photographers to explore stunning destinations, hone their photography skills, and have fun.

Our motto, “where photography meets adventure,” sums up our approach to travel photography tours. We believe that photography is not just about capturing stunning images but also about the adventure and experiences that come along the way. We design our tours to take you to spectacular destinations and provide you with ample opportunities to capture breathtaking images while experiencing the local culture and customs.

Join us on one of our photography tours, and let us take you on a journey to some of the most stunning destinations worldwide. Our tours are perfect for photographers of all skill levels, from beginners to professionals. We guarantee you will return with a portfolio of stunning images and memories that will last a lifetime. We’ll be thrilled if you consider Shuttermoon for your next photography adventure!
