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


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

Nature photographers Bob Harvey and Diane Kelsay guide small groups of photographers to exciting and unique natural, cultural and heritage destinations. Adventures feature one-on-one coaching in the field to full instruction on taking control of the design and technical approaches of your images.

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!

We bring an extensive history and knowledge base to the photographic discussion and have a unique relationship with the tourism industry that enables us to design exciting adventures around the "moments" we nature photographers seek. The photography adventures on this site are truly photography adventures designed by photographers for photographers.

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

Our Terms and Conditions

Join our newest adventure in Costa Rica! We'll explore northern Costa Rica, finding great opportunities with birds, reptiles, frogs, insects - and both coastal and forest landscapes. We'll get you into the canopy, to fantastic waterfalls, and to a number of unique ecosystems that yield both landscape and wildlife opportunities.

This adventure is scheduled in early December, timed for the return of the neotropical migrants and the beginning of the summer dry season is some of the spots we will visit. This is a great opportunity to build your photographic skills while gathering a great library of images to work and share.

Build the exposures that support the designs you intend in your images! Meet us in Portland, Maine for an intense classroom workshop that will give you the skills to take control of your camera. We make it simple to move to manual exposure - and give you the tools to understand what you are doing and how to do it. Most people we teach never look back because it is easier than letting the wizards in the camera make your creative decisions for you. Then, we'll spend some time looking at new technologies - how to adjust to them and how to choose which to own.
