Dramatic peaks!  Glistening in the early morning sun!

 

 

 

Sometimes alternately hidden and unveiled by swirling clouds.

Often providing a stunning backdrop for a guanaco!

Or reflected in a mountain lake.

 

 

Glaciers cascading down dramatic rock faces, spawning waterfalls.

 

 

Some calving into fresh-water lakes.

And a huge glacier, Perito Moreno, that we will walk on, with crampons, cameras in hand!

Condors and rhea.

 

Eagles and caracaras! And the Magellanic woodpecker!

 

This is beautiful big-sky country.  Wide open spaces where you can see for miles. 

A place where gauchos work cattle with horses and dogs.

A place where we can make dramatic compositions of landscapes, glaciers, birds and beasts! 

We have worked with local providers to design and build an adventure that explores the Patagonia region of Argentina and Chile.  We’ll gather in Buenos Aires, Argentina and fly south (domestic round trip included in cost).  We’ll initially base in El Chalten, giving us access to amazing vistas and trails in the Fitzroy region. 

Then we’ll relocate to Cafayate – putting us in position to experience Perito Moreno glacier and some interesting bird photography opportunities.

We’ll journey across the border into Chilé and set up camp in luxurious yurts in Patagonia Camp.  From here, we’ll explore the Torres del Paine region of Chilé’s Patagonia!  Prepare yourself to capture a wealth of images – breaking for classy picnic lunches with extraordinary views!

For many, the surprise will be the opportunity to photograph such stunning and rugged mountainous terrain (including glaciers) without ascending to high altitudes.  Indeed, we may never ascend to 2,500 feet above sea level, even when walking on glaciers!

Includes transfers in Buenos Aires (assuming you arrive on January 31 or February 1 and depart on February 13), domestic airfare to and from Calafate, Argentina, Lodging, all breakfasts, most lunches (some are pack lunches, others are picnics in the field), some dinners, local English-speaking guides, prep materials, photography instruction and assistance.

Flights to and from Buenos Aires, Argentina (our base camp for this adventure) at your own expense.  Extra nights at the beginning or end at your own expense.  Alcoholic drinks at your own expense.  Tipping is expected and your responsibility.

This will be a small group, 6-10 people. 

While the adventure will not be terribly demanding, you will need to be able to manage your gear on forest trails. You will also have the opportunity to trek on a glacier with some of your gear.

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?

Oct 9-16
Belize and Guatemala was ground zero for the ancient Maya civilization - which was engulfed by a tropical rainforest after its collapse. We'll visit Mayan sites, explore caves, photograph birds and monkeys, and work macros of butterflies, ants and colorful plants in this beautiful and inspiring region.

Timed to meet the great migration in the Serengeti, our safari takes you to some of the great parks and protected areas in northern Tanzania in search of lions, zebras, giraffes, cheetah, hyenas... Of all our itineraries, anywhere in the world, this one has the best reviews - and is a real life-changing experience! If you'll only be making one photography foray into sub-Saharan Africa in your life - this is the trip!

Feb 14-25

Botswana just after the rains. Swollen rivers and wildlife along the edges. Birds abundant and nesting. Animals fresh as tourism stops during the rains - we'll be the first groups in and we are going places no one else will go. Count on great opportunities with hippos and elephants, antelope, zebras, wildebeest, cats and dogs. Small group by design. Read the itinerary and then contact us!

Rwanda Gorillas Private Safari

We're headed into Rwanda's high mountains to spend time with gorillas, chimps, other primates - and more!

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!

Jul 9-18
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.

Jul 31 - Aug 7
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!
