Venuses de la Tierra: Wilderness Art Nude Photo Tours

Venuses de la Tierra Tours (Venuses of the Earth) is an eco-feminist collective and multi-day guided art nude photography tour. We provide an immersive wilderness experience that invites photographers to find ecological empowerment and develop a strong, authentic connection to the land and self. This event is for creatives who seek diverse outdoor landscapes, enjoy peer-to-peer learning with other artists, and desire to “push their creative edges” in the natural world.

Venuses de la Sierra Tours strives to create an environment of collaboration and support amongst both our models and our photographers. We aim to build strong community bonds as well as provide a transformative artistic experience for all. For any tour that you sign up for, you will gain access to vast expanses and pastures scouted exclusively for your own personal experience!

New destinations for you! In 2023, in addition to the Eastern Sierra (Venuses of the Sierra), we will be venturing into newer terrain, including Death Valley (Venuses of the Valley), the Central Coast in California (Venuses of the Coast), and Cuba (Venuses of Cuba)–all of which are under the umbrella of Venuses de la Tierra (formally known as Venuses of the Sierra).

All levels of experience are welcome to apply! Priority will go to photographers with at least entry-level photography experience.
