Proboscis MonkeySecrets of Borneo

My newest tour takes us to Malaysian Borneo in search of some of the most elusive and exotic creatures found in the tropics. This tour avoids sanctuaries, and instead focuses on rare species, including five species of wild cats, eight different civets, Bornean orangutans, and more.

The tour is limited to only four spots, to maximize comfort and photo opportunities in a challenging rainforest environment.

Alaska Peninsula Brown BearsAlaska Brown Bears

I’ll be returning to Alaska in 2025 and 2026, leading two different photo experiences with coastal brown bears.

In 2025 we’ll stay at a private lodge, away from the main tourist traffic, as we photograph spring bears (and hopefully their cubs). This remote locations offers fantastic bear viewing while keeping us isolated from day visitors. It’s truly an exclusive experience.

In 2026 we’ll return to the popular private lodge I’ve used on past trips, this time aiming for the late summer salmon run. Each of these trips offers a different experience, filled with fantastic bear photography.

Costa Rica Photo TourCosta Rica Wildlife Photo Tour

My longest-running international tour is back in 2025. The “Quetzals to Corcovado” tour has offered one of the best mixed wildlife experiences of any photo tour in Costa Rica, taking us from the highland cloud forests, to the Caribbean slope, to the Pacific coast. It gives participants a chance to photograph mammals, birds, and even macro subjects.

This tour also boasts the unique and somewhat rugged Corcovado extension. Based at a research station, we have a unique opportunity to explore the best wildlife spot in the entire country with one of the world’s best wildlife trackers.
