Announcing Texas Birding Safari 2013

We had such a fantastic time in the Texas Rio Grande Valley that I’ve already made reservations for next year. This is a one of a kind experience that lets you concentrate on getting good photographs of birds and other wildlife in the unique habitat of South Texas.

Private Blinds for Perfect Shots

In addition to seeing a wide range of interesting species, including Green Jays and Caracara, you’ll have the benefit of photographing them from professionally maintained photo blinds. The blinds are set up to ensure that you’ll get good light, frame-filling shots, and clean backgrounds. The kinds of shots you can get from these private blinds are better than just about anything you can do in the open field.

All-inclusive Safari

Even better is that this photo safari is all-inclusive. In addition to the ranch access, I’ve arranged lodging at an air-conditioned private hunting lodge that is minutes away from the main shooting sites. In fact, there are a few blinds that you can literally walk to from the lodge. Oh, and then there’s the food… you get home-cooked meals every day, a wine/beer happy hour in the afternoon, and pie. Yes, nothing beats coming back from a hot afternoon in the blinds than a cold drink and home cooking. The only thing not included is airfare to/from McAllen Texas (MFE).

Small Group for Personal Attention

This photo safari is limited to four (4) photographers. That means you’ll get every bit of attention that you require to get those perfect shots. After each shooting session, we’ll return to our lodge, review our images, and make sure that all our settings are dialed in for the next time we go out. My goal is to make sure that you get great shots. If you see something that isn’t quite right, we’ll troubleshoot it. If you need help with camera settings or post-processing, I’m there to work with you. Most of all, you’ll get to share your images with great people.

The property owners in Texas happen to be photographers, too. That means that they know what it takes to set up their blinds to be perfect for photography. If you have any aspirations of getting tremendous bird photos, then this trip is about as can’t miss as they come.

Because space is limited to four photographers, this trip will sell out quickly. Reserve your space now.
