Yellowstone Spring Photo TourYellowstone 2015-16 Photo Tours

Join me on a photo adventure in the world’s first national park. I am now offering tours in spring, fall and winter, taking advantage of some Yellowstone’s incredible wildlife and scenery.

My final trip in 2015 is a tour of Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons in Fall, co-led by fellow photographer Zack Clothier.  In 2016 my winter tour is sold out, but I have just added two spring wildlife tours if you’d like to think ahead to a future adventure.

Coastal WolfCoastal Wolves & Sea Otters Tour: Aug. 9-16, 2015

Get $500 OFF the final spot on this tour.  The Coastal Wolves & Sea Otters tour is a one-of-a-kind trip that explores the Pacific coast of British Columbia in search of locally endangered coastal wolves.  These elusive predators rely largely on the food they can catch and scavenge along the beaches and tidal areas of this region.  We’ll have opportunities to track down a couple different packs and potentially photograph them from both sea and land.

Costa Rica Wildlife Photo Tour: March 20-28, 2016

Puma in Costa RicaJoin me in the jungles of wild and beautiful Costa Rica!  I will once again be partnering with Costa Rica Expeditions, one of the world’s top travel outfitters, to lead a photo tour to one of my favorite destinations for wildlife photography.

The tour itinerary is guaranteed to offer a fantastic mix of wildlife viewing and photo opportunities.  It will include an optional extension to Corcovado National Park, where we’ll stay at the Sirena Research Station perhaps the best place to see tapirs and cats (like this puma, photographed on my 2012 tour) in the entire country.

The tour is limited to 6 guests.  Only 2 spots remain!
