Following a successful scouting trip to Mongolia, I’m excited to present this unique opportunity to seek out two of the world’s most elusive felines!
The Cats of Mongolia tour will give us a chance to find and photograph the shy and mysterious Pallas’s cat, followed by a mountain adventure in pursuit of the mystical snow leopard! In addition to the cats, we’ll be on the lookout for foxes, owls, eagles, mustelids and other unique species found in Mongolia.
Explore the rugged coast of British Columbia by boat and come face to face with the wild denizens of the Great Bear Rainforest, including the rare and beautiful spirit bear!
Join Max on the Wilds of the Great Bear Rainforest tour, a nine day adventure as we search the islands and inlets of Canada’s Pacific coast. Fall is the perfect time to see spirit bears—found nowhere else on earth—as well as coastal grizzlies, as they feed on the thousands of salmon that head upstream to spawn. In addition to bears, we’ll search for, coastal wolves, humpback whales, eagles, otters and other coastal wildlife.
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. Our next tours are Yellowstone Spring Wildlife 2024, and then winter 2025.
I try to offer a variety of tours to various wildlife-rich destinations. These trips rarely focus on one particular subject, instead bringing us in contact with a wide range of species.
Tour destinations include:
- Yellowstone National Park
- Costa Rica
- South America: Brazil, Chile and Ecuador
- Africa: South Africa, Tanzania, and Zambia
- Great Bear Rainforest
- The Pacific Northwest
