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.

Winter in Yellowstone with Daniel J. Cox

These creatures, big and small, find warmth near many of the thermal areas, creating unique and stunning imagery. We’ve had some years with great wolf viewing and hope to have similar opportunities again in 2019.

Grand Tetons Fall with Tom Mace

Fall in the Grand Teton National Park is a gift to any photographer attempting to capture nature at its finest. The colors of the park dramatically change establishing astonishing landscape settings with the dominating Tetons as a backdrop. Bears are fattening up and actively feeding in the lower elevations while Elk and Moose fiercely compete for mates as the Rut swings into high gear. As the bugling of the Elk warn all that winter is coming, you can’t help but slow down and appreciate the opportunity to capture this magical time of year with your camera. That is where Tripod Travelers steps in. We plan several trips to the Grand Tetons each year during Spring, Summer, and Fall as the park offers many unique perspectives as the seasons change. Our Fall Trips focus on the Rut, Bears, Moose, and Elk. We get our clients in safe positions to learn, appreciate, and capture these incredible animals as they prepare for winter. Whether Bears digging up Tubers, Elk beginning their annual migration to the Elk reserve or Moose competing in a marsh for their companion; we do our research and leverage our experience to teach our clients how to locate and photograph these animals as they all focus on the next 6 months of surviving the harsh cold that lies ahead. The landscape is also quickly transforming with Fall colors making for incredible landscape opportunities. Based on the time of year, we know the specific locations animals frequent throughout the park and we get you safely in position to seize the opportunity of photographing nature at its finest. Not only are your group leaders experts in photographing and navigating these magnificent landmarks; they pride themselves on maintaining and respecting the natural environment of all parks they visit.

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
August 18-27 with Morgan Heim and Michele Westmorland
