During this “Ecuador Hummingbirds & More Photo Tour ~ 2020” the focus will be on the winged wildlife of this amazingly biodiverse little nation.
We’ll do lots of multi-flash hummingbird photography as we focus our lenses on these neotropic jewels. I’ll provide the equipment & backgrounds & other items needed to get great hummer shots — all you need is your camera (with a hotshoe) and a lens.
The small group size (max 8) assures that everyone gets a chance to use the hummingbird photography set-ups to their hearts’ content.
Hummingbirds are just part of what we’ll discover in these foothills of Ecuador’s Chocó region. This area also hosts a bonanza of beautiful tanagers. We’ll also photograph motmots, toucans, manakins, euphonias & the improbable looking Cock-of-the-Rock. A visit to an Oilbird roost will also help you fill memory cards!
Limited to eight (8); All-inclusive (double-occupancy)

Join Chuck Gangas to photograph Ecuador’s beautiful birds. This photo tour visits 4 of the best bird photography lodges in Ecuador, Tandayapa Bird Lodge, Guango, San Isidro and Sachatamia. Sachatamia and Tandayapa Bird Lodge are the premier sites for multi-flash hummingbird photography on the West side of the Andes. There are regularly 12-20 species of hummingbirds at each of these lodges. At Sachatamia many species are easily photographed coming into both fruit and hummingbirds feeders, we visit Angel Paz’s site for Cock-of-the Rock, Antpittas and other elusive species. Guango lodge is great for Sword-billed Hummingbird and multi-flash photography. When we are in the Quito area we will visit the Antisana Volcano for highland species. We will be doing multi-flash photography at 3 lodges which makes for stunning hummingbird images.
Travel by luxurious ship from island to island, wandering among animals that have no fear of people. We’ll photograph albatross, penguins, flamingos, blue-footed boobies, frigatebirds, giant tortoises, marine iguanas, and more. Snorkel in emerald waters with playful sea lions, sea turtles, and brilliantly colored tropical fish.
While most tours offer only one-week at sea, this tour offers a full two weeks. Suzi has teamed up with legendary Galapagos photographer and expert, Tui De Roy to offer a unique experience that will put us on shore with wildlife at first and last light, when most other tour groups are noticeably absent.
We have chosen the coolest time of year in Galapagos, when the seas are most productive and many species are nurturing cute babies.
