We work very hard to design and lead all our adventures to squeeze the most photographic opportunities from a lot of situations.  A lot of that is about understanding light, weather, species life cycles and daily rhythms.  Another part of that is balancing what we want to share with how far we can push our groups.  A look at our repeat clientele says that we are achieving that balance more than not.

 

However, there are some opportunities out there that require just a little more than we can ask of our groups.  Hence, the birth of our Wild Adventures.

Sometimes that means some of the trails are a little longer or steeper.  Sometimes it means that we go further off the grid and stay there a bit.  Sometimes it involves paddling kayaks or swimming with your photography gear in dry bags.  Sometimes it means exploring caves to get to great formations to photograph. Sometimes it is all about being outside the normal comfort zone.

 

It is never about who can go furthest, highest, fastest or best.  Rather its about working together as a team to get everyone more than they could have achieved alone.  And, we (and our groups) never belittle anyone who opts out of a particular activity or outing.

 

What’s the result?  You might get to photograph daybreak from a place we can’t drive the group to.  Or experience a Mayan ceremonial chamber full of sacrifices.  Or journey deep into the flooded Pantanal to put your lens on a jaguar.  Or explore an ice cave in a glacier on crampons with your tripod and camera in Iceland.  Or paddle quietly through a pristine part of the Amazon basin, camera at the ready.  Or be so far away from cities, you can photograph the stars without light polution.

We’re looking for people ready to work as a team with fellow photographers to achieve great personal and photographic goals on our wild adventures.  Each adventure has its own set of challenges – and we’ll be happy to discuss those with you.

For 2020, we have woven together an itinerary that gets us to some seldom visited parts of the Galapagos, some of our favorite places, and the spots where we can photograph penguins, tortoises, flightless cormorants, all kinds of boobies, breeding frigates, marine and land iguanas and more! We have 10 nights at sea! Don't forget that this trip always fills early - you won't be able to join it in the 12 months before departure!

Journey with us through Ecuador's Chocó Cloudforest Ecosystem to find exciting birds. We have choreographed an adventure to help you build an outstand collection of images of colorful and exotic birds - including a number of unique hummingbirds! And, we'll have our very own bird "whisperer" along to help us find them! Did we mention nightwalks for spiders and other creatures? And butterflies and waterfalls?

This float plane-based adventure will take us deep into the Alaskan wilderness where we'll put ourselves in position for up-close and personal photography of bears fishing for salmon - and jostling with each other. This is a rugged adventure that will send you home with countless great images, both of the bears and of this great wilderness.

We're headed into the northern Serengeti to witness and photograph the Great Migration as it crosses the fabled Mara River. Nile Crocodiles (the big ones) and treacherous waters make the crossing dangerous. And, predators lurk on both sides of the river, as well! This zone is rich in all kinds of wildlife - the photographic opportunities are outstanding. We did our homework to build just the right logistics for photographers - and to make our time in and out of the vehicles great. Join us!

The Pantanal, in Southwest Brazil, is probably the best place in the world to photograph jaguars. And that photography is largely accomplished from a boat. We have concocted a photography safari that will take you to the best spots at the best time with a great local operator. Jaguars are the object, but we'll also find giant river otters, ocelots, macaws, caiman, capybaras, monkeys, anteaters, tapirs, and toucans!

Winter brings out the "ice" in Iceland. Glaciers photograph with strong blues. Waterfalls are often ice encrusted or even frozen solid. Ice, stranded on the beaches is in a better position for backlight - and looks much more dramatic in close-ups. And, Iceland presents an outstanding opportunity to compose great images of the Northern Lights at nigh! We'll also take time to explore an ice cave!

Let's get wilder... deeper into Africa... away from the crowds... and find wild dogs and waterfalls, elephants in great herds, glorious towers of giraffes, hundreds of species of birds and primates that only live in a certain African rainforest. Rivers and mountains - and all the big cats. We'll travel by plane, boat, safari vehicle - and by foot to put us in great places to make great images. Oh, and we've timed this for night skies! This will be one very special adventure!
