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.

Pumas and Peaks of Patagonia with Jeff Parker

Pumas & Peaks of Patagonia Photo Tour ~ 2019

Join award-winning pro, Jeff Parker in Chile for his “Pumas & Peaks of Patagonia Photo Tour ~ 2019” and photograph wild pumas (called mountain lions or cougars in the US) in their natural habitat on a private ranch situated against the breathtaking backdrop of Torres del Paine National Park.

We’ll also focus on doing landscapes of the rugged snow-capped peaks & open grasslands within these dramatic environs.

So that everyone gets the best experience possible, this tour is limited to six (6) photographers. (The 2018 tour sold out long before its scheduled date.)

Photograph WILD, free-ranging animals — not captive cats, not game farm animals; the real deal in their authentic habitat. The tour takes place in the Southern Hemisphere in autumn, which usually makes for some good landscape shots. But this place is gorgeous no matter when you visit!

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.

Jaguars in the Pantanal with Morgan Heim and Michele Westmoreland

You are floating quietly on a river in the dawn light. A chorus of birds fills the air, and then on silent paw, a jaguar, her pattern of gold and black spots, emerges from the jungle across from your boat. Your instinct says to take as many photos as you can before she disappears. But she doesn’t disappear. She has come to the river to swim, hunt, and give her young some playtime. You don’t have to absorb it all in a second. You can revel at the moments, be present, and come away with photos and a wildlife experience absolutely unforgettable in memory and reality.

I invite you to join me on this Visionary Wild adventure to Brazil’s Pantanal, where we are so assured to see jaguars that we designed the trip specifically around seeing these majestic big cats. You will get to see tons of other wildlife as well. The Pantanal is one of the most diverse, densely populated (in terms of animals), wildlife accessible destinations on the planet. Expect to see animals including hyacinth macaws, toucans and ocelots — occupants of the largest inland wetland in the world.

We’ve designed to trip to be intimate — only six slots per trip. That’s a one to three ration for instructor to attendee. You have two opportunities to get on board. I will be leading one trip with Visionary Wild founder Justin Black in early August, followed immediately by a second trip with the extraordinarily talented Michele Westmorland, another iLCP senior fellow. Both trips promise to be grand adventures! Sign up soon. Slots are filling up fast.

Dates: August 9-18 with Morgan Heim and Justin Black
