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.

2022

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 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.

Venture out into the wilds of Rwanda with a small group (4-6 plus one leader), 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!

Let's get wilder... deeper into Africa... away from the crowds... and find wild dogs and many hippos, elephants in great herds, glorious towers of giraffes, hundreds of species of birds and exciting primates. Some of the most exciting landscapes we've found in Africa! Rivers and mountains adorned with giant baobabs. 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!
