We have combined our usual great shoot for hummingbirds with an opportunity to photograph nocturnal wildlife as well, conditions permitting. Both are photographed with our high speed flash setups and, for the wildlife, our camera tripping PhotoTraps. We'll be shooting at our usual location in Madera Canyon. This is incredibly interesting photography!
Our Digital Complete Nature Photo Course will maximize the potential of your digital camera with exciting photography techniques most easily accomplished with digital cameras. You'll learn practical Workflow procedures, truly understand the RAW converter, and some basic Photoshop skills - like Masking and Layers, to maximize your digital shooting. We conduct this course at Hoot Hollow, Pa.!
This is our most popular domestic destination for wildlife photography, and we've been doing this tour since 1983! We still love shooting in Yellowstone, as it has so much to offer, with wildlife and landscapes, we just never get tired of sharing this great National Park.
Reptiles of the World Shoot
This is quite possibly the most unique photo shoot offered anywhere in this country. Unlike a few other
reptile or frog photo shoots we have a structured and safe environment that features using our flash equipment and well thought out, subject-specific, and accurate props and setups. The resulting photos look natural and beautiful. On a typical shoot we photograph at least 75 species, including geckos and chameleons, nonvenomous snakes, swimming turtles, a variety of frogs and treefrogs and toads, and several venomous snakes, including rattlesnakes, cobras, mambas, and more. You are not shooting through glass, but you are safe. This is an incredible opportunity to photograph subjects not available any other way, anywhere else!
We offer this incredible shoot every other year. We're photographing Brown Bears from the beach, at eye-level, and often quite close as the bears fish for salmon. Our home base is a boat featuring comfortable cabins and great food, and we'll have access to shooting all day. Additionally, we'll be photographing Bald Eagles, Sea Otters, and whatever other wildlife we encounter. The trip is limited to only eight photographers.
