I’m excited to announce that I’ve arranged for a 10-night private photo tour to Scotland! On this small group (max 10) tour, we’ll have a private coach and 4-star accommodations as we tour the countryside from Stirling to Loch Lomond. As your leader, I’ll be working with each participant to help you discover new creative approaches to travel photography. I’ve arranged for a flexible itinerary that allows us to have a casual approach and maximize our photo time so that we get photographs, not snapshots.

All-Inclusive Birding Photo Safari in the Trinidadian Rainforest
The island of Trinidad, tucked away in the southern Caribbean, will always be special to me. In the late 1990’s, I spent several weeks there conducting field research as part of my doctoral dissertation. On a day off, I visited the Asa Wright Nature Centre and marveled at all the birds from their veranda. Now, I’m happy to announce an exclusive small-group photo safari to Trinidad in June, 2018.
This is your opportunity to photograph the colorful birds and other wildlife of Trinidad. I will provide each participant with as much technical and creative support as they need to capture fantastic images over the course of four days while we enjoy the laid-back accommodations at the Asa Wright lodge.
Trinidad Birding Photo Safari with Jason Odell
When: June 12-17, 2018 Where: Asa Wright Nature Centre & Lodge, Arima, Trinidad, West Indies
This exciting photo safari includes:
5 nights single-occupancy accommodations at the world-famous Asa Wright Nature Centre & Lodge
Breakfast, lunch, & dinner each day, plus afternoon tea
For 2018, I’ve listened to your feedback and I’m taking smaller groups (6-8) for a more personalized experience. I’m also offering more birding safaris, as it’s something many people have been asking about. I’m also offering photo tours, including another photo cruise to Alaska!
My philosophy is simple: photography is a craft. I believe you learn the most when you immerse yourself in the complete workflow of photography (visualization/capture/processing) for more than just a morning or afternoon.
On my tours and safaris, we focus on more than just taking pictures. It’s about the experience itself. I hope you’ll find the time to join me in the field soon!
I’m pleased to announce a new small-group instructional photo safari to southern California for coastal birding! This event is perfect for beginners to intermediate (and up) photographers looking to capture flight shots of the numerous shorebirds along the San Diego coast.
When: March 4-8, 2018 Where: San Diego (La Jolla), California
