Coinciding with Leica’s 60th anniversary, the iconic camera company is teaming up with Exclusive Resorts to give guests access to great photographic equipment (and instruction) during their stay.

Leica cameras are celebrated for producing photographs that are crisp, clean, often black and white images with dramatic depth of field. Henri Cariter Bresson, the most avid Leica enthusiast and famed photographer, once said “shooting with a Leica is like a long, tender kiss." On the new photo tours, called “Destination in Focus Getaways,” participants have access to state-of-the-art Leica equipment, as well as lessons by teachers from the Leica Akademie.

Travelers can take advantage of a “Leica on Loan” at Exclusive resorts and villas in Mexico, Montana, and the Mediterranean.

The getaway rates start at $2,999 and include a four-night stay at one of Exclusive Resort’s luxury villas. The next tour is set for November 12th - 16th and ready made with scenic desert scapes at Miraval in Tuscon, Arizona.
