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.

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!

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! This is one of our wild adventures - as we'll journey far off the grid and lodging is about positioning us rather than luxury!

Venture out into the wilds of Rwanda with a small group, often on foot, to experience photographic encounters with wild gorillas, chimpanzees, colobus monkeys, golden monkeys, and much, much more. Dates are tentative until we secure permits. We are building custom groups of travelers we have field experience with. Ask if you fit this group!

Join us on a jaguar quest that will yield so much more than jaguars. The Pantanal is the only place in the world where jaguars routinely hunt during daylight - and the jaguars of the northern Pantanal are "patient" with photographers! We'll journey by boat to seek jaguar action - but we'll also find giant river otters, caiman, capybara, and a wealth of birdlife including the jabiru stork - largest flying bird of the Americas.. You are likely to come back with images of birds with fish in their possesion. Great place to master flying birds. A must do photo trip!

The Great Migration of wildebeest and zebras reaches Tanzania's Northern Serengeti in late July or early August. Rains furthern north, in Kenya's Masai Mara beckon the herds - and the route involves crossing the treacherous Mara River where crocodiles await. We've timed this safari to put you at the right place at the right time to capture the drama - and so much more as we explore the areas around the Mara, the Central Serengeti, Tarangire National Park, and the fabled Ngorongoro Crater!

Join us on a photographic journey to special ecosystems on the mysterious Island of Madagascar!. All of the world's lemurs are endemic here - 110 species and counting. Chameleons - 160 species! And more kinds of baobab trees than anywhere else on earth. Wet forests, dry forests, endemic plants and animals everywhere. We'll photograph during the day and again in the darkness! And an extension to Tsingy - a land of razor-sharp limestone blades and pinnacles!
