Galapagos Photography Tour 2018 -Tour did SELL OUT-
About the 2018 tour (dates were April 14-23, 2018)
What a trip! In the annals of all the photo tours and workshops I’ve led in 19 years, this Galapagos tour easily rocketed to the number 1 position. Everything about this tour was amazing. My group was incredibly lucky with the wildlife encounters we witnessed and photographed. We enjoyed agreeable weather, mostly calm seas, delicious food and of course the friendly hospitality of the yacht crew and guide during our 8 days in the Galapagos.
From the first day when we had Galapagos Penguins torpedoing past us at the beach to the 3 curious juvenile Galapagos Hawks that landed within a few feet of us, to snorkeling with a HUGE manta ray, we were treated to a constant barrage of wonderful and unique wildlife moments. And we photographed it all with glee. My group of photographers, an artist and a couple of casual observers came together as one during our time together and the Galapagos was the catalyst that made it happen. Some of my group of intrepid photographers even almost began to run out of storage card space towards the end of the week as we had just so many chances at incredible wildlife and island scenic images. We witnessed a barrage of Waved Albatrosses soaring just in front of us, giant Galapagos Tortoises chowing down on grasses, and large schools of Leopard Rays gliding just below the surface as we cruised in the dinghies. We saw male Frigatebirds with inflated red gular sacs, Short-eared Owls preening right in front of us, and gobs of huge iguanas and endless flying seabirds. Needless to say thousands upon thousands of images were taken.
I offer here a small sample of the photographs and video I was able to capture during that week in the Galapagos. I wish to thank the yacht crew and our guide as well as the great group of participants that were with me during this amazing trip. I will be offering this same tour to the Galapagos in April of 2020. It’s not too early to reserve a space. 10 spaces still open.
