Details:  Established in 1872 as our first national park, Yellowstone is a natural wonder and photographer’s paradise.  Encompassing more than 3500 sq. miles, Yellowstone is the biggest national park in the lower 48.  The photography opportunities are stunning; turquoise thermal pools, geysers, roadside wildlife and towering waterfalls make this one of our favorite parks.  Yellowstone is special for its wildlife including grizzly bears, wolves and the largest herd of bison in the US.

Wall, South Dakota                                       Cost: $1099

Details: Badlands National Park is a mesmerizing land of multi-hued rock formations and abundant wildlife. The expansive views in the park give way to roaming herds of bison and big horn sheep. In early June, the prairie grass is green and provides a vibrant contrast to roaming mammals.  Thunderstorms frequently rip through the park and create spectacular cloudscapes and lightning. Sunrise and sunset will be spent in the park capturing dramatic landscapes. During the midday hours we will visit a ghost town and focus on wildlife photography. Our trip will be based out of Wall, South Dakota, a town filled with colorful cowboy boots and local characters.

 


Galapagos – SOLD OUT

Dates: July 31-Aug 8, 2020

Quito, Ecuador & Galapagos Islands         Read more       

Cost: $7989 double and single occupancy (very limited); $1800 non-refundable deposit due upon registration.

Description: We are very excited to offer an incredible trip to the Galapagos in 2020.  We looked at many boat options (we have done Galapagos cruises before) and wanted something different.  A unique trip designed for a small group with tons of deck space (better photography) and an itinerary that focuses on the amazing wildlife of the Galapagos.  We found it with the Mary Anne, a 216 foot 3-masted sailing boat. The Galapagos is a bucket list trip for any photographer, and traveling through islands on this boat will be a remarkable voyage.
