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. 

If you’d like to try one of our Wild Adventures, fill out the trip form to sign up and we can discuss the activity details and answer your questions.

The Mara Crossing Wild Adventure!

When the great Serengeti Migration reaches the Mara River in the Tanzania/Kenya border region, the millions of wildebeest and zebras have to cross. In that river, crocodiles await. What follows is high drama. Oh, and we'll weave in some other spectacular parts of Tanzania, including the predators of the Central Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Crater, and more! If you are wild enough, check with us to see if you qualify!

Let's explore Belize and Guatemala on a Wild Adventure. This time we'll be working as a team to go deep into wild caves to light up special formations and artifacts with multiple flashes. We'll ascend pyramids in ancient Mayan cities. We'll explore collapsed cave systems. We'll find wild birds and animals in Belizean and Guatemalan rainforests. Are you wild enough? Contact us if you are interested!

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.

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!

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