Submit a Picture Perfect Place

The Photographing National Parks mission is all about sharing great knowledge about great locations for photography.

Would you like to share one of your Picture Perfect Places with the world? Please use the form below to tell me a little about the place, or just contact me and we can set up a time to talk on the phone, or via email, or whatever.


The Picture Perfect Place should be in a national park, or perhaps even in another unit of the National Park Service, such as a national monument, national parkway, national seashore, etc. Or even a national preserve, or a national wildlife refuge.

Also, the location should be specific. For example, “Yellowstone” is way too general; “Firehole Lake Drive” would be more specific, and therefore better; “Great Fountain Geyser” would be even more specific, and perhaps even better because of it. Another example: “Great Smoky Mountains” is too general, and so too is “Cades Cove”; but “Hyatt Lane” would be perfectly specific.

In addition to the textual information, I’ll also ask you to submit a beautiful photo that we can publish with the write-up to illustrate the potential of the location.

Along with your name, I’m happy to mention and link to any relevant information that you’d like. You can mention your website, an exhibition, a book, a workshop, etc. An extended opt-in audience of more than 10,000 photographers of all levels will be notified when the article is published, plus whomever else reads it on the website in the short- or long-term.

To submit a Picture Perfect Place… Honestly, I find these easiest to do on the phone, but we can do it electronically if that’s easier for you. Please contact me or fill out the form below. (For an example, see Mahogany Hammock, Everglades.) I will email you afterward with directions about sending me an accompanying image.
