    July 1-5, 2015 : The award winning Adirondack Museum has been serving the Adirondack community for more than 50 years, so where better to serve as base camp for our photographic exploration of these historic mountains.The opportunities within the 46 acre museum campus offers us many opportunities to not only enhance our knowledge of the human history of the region but to capture images of our own to help us tell the mountain's stories. Nearby are majestic grand landscapes as well as intimate mountain and forest stories to capture.

    2015 Svalbard Photography Tour
    July 10-24, 2015 : Join Dan and Tanya on an 11 day voyage in the Norways archipelago! The ship is not too small but not too large  54 guests. It  has a fine reputation for polar expedition cruising due to its strength, maneuverability and small number of cabins. Polar bears create an unforgettable spectacle whether hunting seals on pack ice, shepherding cubs along the beach or swimming near our Zodiacs. High above the Arctic Circle, well explore deep fjords, polar deserts, tundra tinged with wildflowers and vast glaciers calving into the sea. Summer in the Arctic! On foot and by Zodiac, well visit abandoned whaling settlements, search for walrus, Arctic fox and reindeer and revel in millions of migratory birds, including little auks, guillemots and puffin. The seas are alive with whales along with bearded and possibly ringed seals.

    Costa Rica 2015

    Costa Rica has rightly earned a reputation as a must see destination for nature tourists.  The variety of habitats packed into this small country enable it to harbor more bird species than the entire continental United States.  Not only does Costa Rica pack a punch with the number of species, but so many of them are vibrantly colorful.

    Iceland : Bird-centric & Field-intensive Workshop
    July 16-23, 2015 : Join Shoot The Light host Michael Milicia for a visit to the land of puffins and the midnight sun. This field-intensive and bird-centric workshop will be based on a small remote island off the coast of Iceland which is home to about 100 people and 1 million seabirds!

    This is a "one stop shopping" location for the serious bird photographer with large numbers of nesting Atlantic puffins, Arctic terns, black-legged kittiwakes, razorbills, northern fulmars, golden plovers, snow buntings, red-necked phalaropes, and more.  The island also features a picturesque lighthouse and church, distant snow-covered mountain backdrops, and a small group of photogenic Icelandic horses.

    Basing ourselves on the island will give participants the freedom and flexibility to photograph wherever, whenever, and whatever they choose during the 22 hours of daylight that will be available each day.  Time that might otherwise be spent unpacking, repacking, and driving from place to place can instead be spent in the field and you will not be dependent on group transportation to get you to the optimum shooting locations at the time of your choosing.  This extended field time will also allow for more instruction, including more opportunities for one-on-one sessions and individualized coaching as desired.

    Of all the species on the island, the puffins tend to steal the show.  This is an especially good location for photographing puffins in small and large groups and for photographing puffins in flight with birds flying by at near eye level at a rate of dozens per minute at various times of day.  You will be free to roam the entire island but some of the best photography will be found within a few hundred yards of our guest house.  We have timed the workshop to take place after the puffin chicks have hatched so that we will also have the adults bringing mouthfuls of fish back to their burrows.  

    In addition to the multitude of land-based avian opportunities, there will also be an excursion by boat which will provide an entirely different perspective including great looks at the nesting cliffs and birds resting on the water.

    Accommodations on the island will be at a simple but modern guest house with private rooms, shared baths, and wi-fi.  Arrangements have been made to have all meals catered at the guest house which will allow us to have even a bit more time in the field each day.

    Palouse Workshop: The American Tuscany
    July 16-19, 2015 : The Palouse region is the American Tuscanywith rolling hills of wheat, beautiful old barns, and panoramic viewpoints this unique landscape provides opportunities to capture the grand landscape as well as abstract intimate details. The farmland utilizes only what nature provides for irrigation which means there are no distracting watering systems to detract from the majestic old world feel to the landscape.
