Brazil Amazon + Pantanal Photo Tour
My exciting Brazil adventure is returning in 2024! This tour features the famous jaguars of the Pantanal, but it’s so much more than that. In order to inject greater variety into the trip experience, we’ll also be spending time in the southern Amazon rainforest.
Between the Amazon and the Pantanal, we’ll be exposed to a wider variety of bird and mammal life (200+ and 30+ species are possible), and a more varied experience: game drives, exploration by boat, night walks, and canopy tower sessions.
Cats of Mongolia: Snow Leopard & Pallas’s Cat
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.
The 2024 tour is FULL. Learn more about the 2025 Mongolia tour.
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. Our next tours are Yellowstone Spring Wildlife (June 2023), followed by Spring 2024, and then winter and spring trips in 2025.

Nature and Wildlife Photography Tours
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
