This is a great trip for general wildlife enthusiasts dreaming of an African safari experience, as well as novice and advanced wildlife photographers.

Wild Pumas of Patagonia Tour2019 Pumas of Patagonia Photo Tour

Join me in southern Chile on a quest to photograph the wild pumas of Patagonia. We’ve had great success finding these magnificent cats the last couple years, with some very close encounters to boot. This region also boasts a variety of other wildlife, from guanacos to armadillos to owls and condors.  And it happens to be a world class landscape photography destination, so we’ll get the best of both worlds, photographically speaking.

Yellowstone Photo Tours in Spring, Fall & Winter

Join me on a photo adventure in the world’s first national park! Yellowstone is home to abundant wildlife (it’s probably the best location for general wildlife in the Lower 48), and even has some landscape photo opportunities as well. Our tours shift focus depending on the season, with spring being more wildlife-centric, while the autumn and winter tours offer more opportunities for landscapes.

These tours fill up fast.  The next tour with available spots is the 2019 Spring Wildlife tour.
