Ecuador Birds with Jeff Parker

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)

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!

British Columbia Birds with Jeff Wendorff

Bird Photography Workshop Overview

Join us on the best bird photography workshop in British Columbia featuring the most significant Bald Eagle migration in the world! British Columbia is the winter home for 2000 to 8000 Bald Eagles during their winter migration south to feed on the spawning salmon and to breed. They linger in the area through the winter months, raising their young before returning to their summer territory in Northern BC and the Yukon.

The bird photography workshop is organized for this time of the year because it is when the Bald Eagles put on their best show. You’ll be able to photograph all kinds of bird behavior from flying, besting, flirting, mating, eating and if we are really lucky, aerial battles with eagles In other words, you will be clicking a lot!

There are birds galore on the best bird photography workshop in British Columbia. In addition to the eagles, hundreds of thousands of migrating waterfowl are cruising the Pacific Flyway for their annual migration. All of the ducks and geese in one space causes the local raptor population to converge on the same area for easy hunting. All in all, this makes winter a very birdy season in British Columbia, and we are going to show you the best of the best!

We have lead this bird photography workshop for several years, and each year we tweak it as our local knowledge grows. We know the best locations, best times, heck we even “know” some of the birds! You will be set up for your photography in the best areas with the most birds at the peak time of the Bald Eagle migration in British Columbia!

Jurassic Coast of England with Colin Hocking

​Based on the Dorset coast of England we will have access to both the history and natural history of this stunning coastline. Our week will include visits to the Abbotsbury Swannery and Botanical Gardens; Corfe Castle, a 17th century ruin; Radipole Lake, an RSPB bird sanctuary; Chesil Beach, and numerous villages with quintessential thatch roof cottages. We’ll explore the fossil laden beaches of this coast where fossil hunters have made astounding discoveries, learn about the history of one of Dorset’s heroes, Vice-Admiral Sir Thomas Hardy, who fought alongside Admiral Lord Nelson at the Battle of Trafalgar, and visit Lyme Regis, the film location of The French Lieutenant’s Woman. We’ll also see sunrises and sunsets….weather permitting!

Galapagos with Suzi Eszterhas and Tui De Roy

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.
