Photograph Colorado Wildflowers July 9-12

Instructional Photo Safari in Crested Butte, CO

Lupine, Kebler Pass, CO

My third annual Rocky Mountain Wildflower photo safari will be held July 9-12 in Crested Butte, Colorado. I have two seats available for photographers who wish to immerse themselves in the beauty of the Rockies while photographing the colorful wildflower blooms there. I’ve designed this safari to be low-impact. No hiking or off-roading is required. We will focus our efforts on creative close-up/macro techniques, as well as other creative ways of capturing Colorado’s summer colors.

Booking deadline is June 24th, so reserve your seat soon!

Farewell to Texas

Painted Bunting, Rio Grande Valley, Texas

After a long ten days in the field with two groups of clients, I’m back home from south Texas. What a week! We photographed over 30 unique species of birds from the private blinds, and everyone walked away with some fabulous keeper photos that you just couldn’t get anywhere else. I captured the shot above on the final session of this year’s safari. I used the incredible combination of the Nikon D500 (see current pricing) and 300mm f/2.8 AFS G VR Nikkor lens and TC-20EIII, which gave me an effective focal length of 900mm!

It’s been my privilege to be among a handful of photographers selected to serve as bird photography guides at the Dos Venadas Ranch, where most of my images were captured. 2018 safari dates are TBD. If you would like more information on joining me on  a private safari at this location, please sign up for my email newsletter so you’ll be the first to know about all my events.
