    Brazilian Pantanal
    October 5-18, 2014 : Our group size limited to eight (8) travelers will be the only thing small about your 2014 Brazilian Pantanal Photo Tour with Jeff Parker.

    Join me in the superlative capital of the world the worlds largest contiguous wetland to photograph and marvel over:
    JAGUARS ~ Worlds largest subspecies. At up to 350 lbs (150 kilos), these felines are about double the size of an average Amazonian jaguar and the 3rd largest cat in the world (after the lion and tiger).
    GIANT OTTER ~ Worlds largest member of weasel family. These endangered carnivores can grow up to 6-feet long. Locals have given them the moniker river wolves.
    CAPYBARA ~ Worlds largest rodent. You never knew rodents could be so cool! These tail-less critters can weigh as much as an adult human and measure more than a meter (over 3-feet) long.
    JABIRA STORK ~ Worlds largest stork. These birds are so large they use them to deliver full-grown adults. Okay, well maybe I'm pulling your leg, but youll have to join me to find out.
    HYACINTH MACAW ~ Worlds largest macaw. Of the worlds 372 parrot species, these endangered, cobalt blue beauties measure the longest typically 3-feet (100 cm) high.
    BRAZILIAN (Lowland) TAPIR ~ Largest land mammal in South America. Classified as a vulnerable species by IUCN, this herbivore, which stands about 3-feet (1 meter) tall at the shoulders, uses its long, bendable proboscis to strip branches of leaves and fruit.
    PARAGUAYAN CAIMAN ~ Worlds highest density of any crocodilian species. I won't be swimming, but you go ahead.
    YELLOW ANACONDA ~ These water-dwelling snakes belong to the family Boidae, which includes the worlds largest snake species. Yellow anacondas are the second largest boa species in South America and grow 10-13 feet (approx. 3-4 meters). Like I said, I won't be swimming, but you go ahead.

    Autumn Leaves of Brown County, Indiana
    October 14-18 : I have coming to this Midwest gem for many years. Brown County is one the best destinations in the country for outstanding autumn color. Our base will be in Nashville, a charming little town with lots of character. The town has a true art scene, funky eating establishments and many shops. There are numerous great vistas in Brown County State Park where the hardwood trees just burst with reds, oranges and yellows in mid- October. There are quaint covered bridges in the area and plenty of quiet back roads where farmers will be harvesting corn and the lure of small town rural charm still exists. This is truly a workshop not to be missed, as the photo opportunities are everywhere. Make sure to book your lodging early as this area is extremely popular in autumn (with good reason). This popularity is the reason why I am scheduling the workshop for the weekdays.

We will spend the first evening photographing the city skyline of Portland where long exposures will yield stunning results with the just the right mix of ambient light and city lights. Next morning we will visit the famed Japanese Gardens with their fantastic landscapes brimming with autumn color! Then we will head east to the famous Columbia River Gorge.

We will base out of the cool outdoorsy town of Hood River where we can also photograph mountain lakes with dramatic snow-capped Mt Hood looming in the backdrop. As I mentioned everything from cityscapes to landscapes to intimate detail shots. This workshop will make you a better photographer and you will come back with many outstanding images.
