Kenya with Jeff Wendorff

Africa, what a place! I’ve been visited 17 times and last year I spent more days in Africa than I did in my apartment, and she never disappoints. If you are like me; you grew up watching Tarzan, loved the circus and the zoo, Marlin Perkins was a hero, Hatari was an incredible movie, and you dreamt of being in Africa. I can assure you that the real thing is even more amazing than you have imagined. I love this Kenya Safari! I’ve done this exact safari 4 times and can’t wait to share that with you! Once you experience a Kenya Safari, you will love it too! And of course, You Will Be Amazed!

I am so excited to be going back for a Kenya Safari in the “green” season. It is the most beautiful time of the year and the plains are a verdant green and not the browns of fall. We will visit the stunning Amboseli National Park, and if the “shy mountain” Kilimanjaro allows, we’ll see vast herds of elephants along with that iconic peak. From there we continue our safari and explore the fabulous Masai Mara National Park. We’ll be looking for the Big Five (elephant, rhino, leopard, lion, and buffalo) and everything in between. And that is just the highlights!

Underwater Humpback Whales of Tonga with Suzi Eszterhas

This is an incredibly special tour to photograph humpback whales underwater in Tonga. It is uniquely designed to give you 2-3 times more time in the water with whales than other tours. Most photo tours have a group of 6-10 participants, but with only 4 snorkelers allowed in the water with the whales at one time, participants must rotate on every swim. This can be very frustrating, as you have to wait your turn at sightings and miss out on many photo opportunities. The group size for this tour is limited to only 3 participants so that no one has to wait and you get maximum time in the water photographing whales. There is no other tour that offers this. This tour is timed to coincide with the best time for finding mothers with young calves, maximizing our chances for photographing endearing maternal interactions. We’ll be based on land in the most luxurious resort in the area and spend our days on the water in a private charter boat chartered exclusively for our group. No scuba required – we snorkel with the whales.

With such a small group, this is a unique opportunity for an incredible amount of one-to-one instruction from professional wildlife photographer Suzi Eszterhas. Suzi has published over 100 magazine covers and feature stories and has vast experience photographing wildlife all over the world.

Danube Delta Scouting Tour with Jeff Parker

Because this is a SCOUTING TRIP this photo tour is offered at a very special low price: $2500 (all-inclusive; double occupancy – single is available).

Group size is limited to six (6)

During this Danube Delta photo tour, we’ll explore this biosphere reserve with cameras in-hand. This protected river network, famous with birders the world over, is Earth’s northernmost sub-tropical forest.

With over 5,500 species of flora and fauna, the Danube Delta is one of the world’s most bio-diverse places and hosts plenty of lens-fodder!

We already know birding here is awesome so we’ve organized this scouting trip to determine just how great the photography can be. As with our other scouting trips, this photo tour is offered only this once at this special price.

Mid-May is the to visit the Danube Delta. While the bird activity is at its peak, the temperatures are still relatively low compared to what they’ll be in the summer.

The Danube Delta is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and World Biosphere Reserve, encompassing about 1.6 million acres of rivers, canals, marshes, tree-fringed lakes, floating reed islands, and sand dunes. The waters of the Delta meander to the Black Sea.

Tangier Island VA with Irene Hinke-Sacilotto

This Tangier Island Photo Workshop features photography of a unique waterman community and local wildlife. Just south of the Maryland line, in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay, lays Tangier Island, VA. Covering approximately 1.2 square miles, Tangier Island is actually a series of small islands connected by narrow wooden bridges spanning marshes and tidal creeks. Tangier is a charming community of waterman and shop owners. Many inhabitants make their living, as did their ancestors for more than 400 years, by crabbing, fishing, and oystering. Each day we will rise before dawn, hoping to capture sunrise images and photos of the waterman as they man their skiffs and works boats, heading out to their offshore crab shanties to gather up their crab pots, scrapes, floats, and other gear for the day. For photos from the water, Saturday morning I chartered a boat for a trip around the island with the hopes of photographing the docks, waterman at work, and local birdlife.

During our stay, we will explore the beach, tidal creeks, and wetlands in search of wildlife. Ducks, geese, herons, rails, shorebirds, skimmers, terns, and pelicans take advantage of the rich food supply that the island and its surroundings afford. There is also a healthy population of ospreys nesting on nearby platforms and jetties. Includes one-on-one instruction in the field, orientation program, and image review. Also includes 2 nights accommodations (double occupancy) at local B&B. Second session 15-17 May 2020.
