Birding Tours, Bird Photo Tours
Bird Photography Workshops
We offer international birding tours led by expert birding guides who know how to find even the most elusive target birds, unique bird photography workshops at both introductory and advanced levels, and international bird photo tours led by a professional bird photographer plus an expert birding guide.
Why choose us? personal service, small groups, memorable experiences, reasonable pace, expert guides, professional photography instruction, fair price. Our goal is always to make your experience the best it can be.
Our birding tours cover diverse habitats, altitudinal zones, and locales to maximize species count and are scheduled for the best times of year for birding, typically when birds are in breeding plumage and especially active. We stay in comfortable accommodations, preferably eco-lodges, near the birding sites whenever possible. For each tour we provide extensive information on our website including detailed itinerary, description, tour map, photos, checklists, target bird lists, and lists of range-restricted and endemic birds.

BIRD PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS
Our instructional bird photo workshops instruct participants on how to obtain stunning environmental portraits of birds in their natural habitats without reliance on outdoor studio setups. All workshops are conducted by professional bird photographer Laura L Fellows, whose extensive body of work is evident throughout our website. Introductory and advanced workshops take place at locations specially chosen for their photographic opportunities within the United States, while international workshops take place at selected locations in the tropics. Every workshop includes one-on-one phone consultations with Laura along with assignments prior to arrival on location, photography in the field, classroom instruction, and constructive critiques intended to improve everyone's photographic success.

BIRD/WILDLIFE PHOTO TOURS
Our bird photo tours emphasize bird photography, though we don't ignore other animals, especially during our Africa safaris. Our goal on tour is always to get great photographs of many species of birds and other animals in their natural habitats. Itineraries are often similar to our birding tours, but the pace is slower to allow ample time to get the shots we want. During our Africa safaris we emphasize bird photography, visiting selected birding locales in addition to game parks, sometimes stopping along back roads or walking forest trails to look for and photograph the beautiful birds not usually seen or photographed on typical safaris. Our staff photographer, Laura Fellows, is happy to give advice before and during every tour. For each tour we provide extensive information on our website including detailed itinerary, description, tour map, photos, and checklists.
