Nature Photography Adventures, Photography adventures designed for nature photographers by nature photographers


Welcome to NaturePhotographyAdventures.com, a site dedicated to nature photography adventures and techniques.

Nature photographers Bob Harvey and Diane Kelsay guide photographers to exciting and unique natural, cultural and heritage destinations, coaching and teaching on demand in the field.

We invite you to explore the site, enjoy the photographs, and explore our nature photography adventure opportunities. If you would like to participate in one of our adventures, we invite you to send us an application!

Join us in an exciting nature photography adventure and improve your ability to capture the wonders of nature in still images.

Join us in early June 2016 as we explore the many moods and exciting terrain of Oregon's southern coast! This is an amazing rugged coast, created by the intersection of the Siskiyou Mountains with the Pacific Ocean. We'll find beaches, estuaries, cliffs, offshore rocks, sea cave, and exciting tidepools. We've timed our 2016 adventure for the "dark of the moon" which will give us great tidepools and may offer night sky opportunities!

 

This is a great opportunity to improve your skills working with moving water - and wet reflections. We'll also have many chances to work with close-ups in and out of water - and abstract patterns.
