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.

Ecuador Birds with Jeff Parker

Winged Wonders of Ecuador Photo Tour ~ 2019

Join award-winning pro, Jeff Parker for his “Winged Wonders of Ecuador Photo Tour ~ 2019” and focus on the avian jewels of the Neotropics. Visit several elevations in Ecuador’s Chocó Region and experience different ecosystems & the special birds they harbor.

Hummingbirds are the highlight! In Ecuador, they come dressed in dazzling colors & a variety of forms — including the magnificent Booted Racket-tail & Sword-billed Hummingbird! During this Ecuador Photo Tour we could have the opportunity to photograph up to 40 unique hummingbird species!.

A big part of this trip will be multi-flash hummingbird photography. Jeff will provide the equipment & backgrounds & other items needed to get great shots. And by limiting the tour to just eight (8) participants everyone gets to utilize the set-ups as much—or as little—as they wish.

But hummingbirds are just part of what you’ll photograph. Tanagers, motmots, toucans, manakins, euphonias & the improbable looking Cock-of-the-Rock will also fill your memory cards.

This tour also includes a trip to an Oilbird roost where we’ll get the rare chance to capture images of the nocturnal birds while we have the light to do our photography.
