  • Weather is a big factor when it comes to photography and will play a part in what we do and when we do it. Be flexible!

  • Our tours may include hikes/walks of several kilometers, possibly over rough or uneven terrain. A certain level of physical fitness is required. If you are unsure, please contact us. 

  • Although not specifically included in the itinerary, evenings may include activities such as sunset photo opps or instructional photography workshops. Upon return to our accommodation, before we disperse for supper, we will have a quick (5-10 minute) informal get together to discuss what, where and when for the next day as well as any evening possibilities.

  • Our ground transportation will consist of 2 or more vehicles. We encourage participants to switch vehicles from day to day and will introduce a ‘lottery’ to determine which will be your vehicle for the day.


We want this tour to be not just fun, but also a learning experience. We want to help you become an even better photographer! There will be plenty of opportunity (if you wish it) for one-on-one time with Barry, our Professional Photography Instructor. Barry has over 35 years experience teaching photography skills at a college level; Scenic, Wildlife, Landscape, Action and Macro/Close-up. His vast knowledge of nature and natural history can be put to good use helping you identify what you’re seeing and photographing.
