Photograph unique rainforest birds like the violaceous euphonia in Trinidad with Jason Odell

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.

Join me in South Dakota Sept. 17-21, 2017

odell_20160912_40092017 marks my 7th consecutive year of leading landscape photography safaris in South Dakota! I hope you’ll join me to explore fine-art landscape photography techniques in an environment that can only be described as surreal. We will explore light, texture and clouds over the tremendous rock formations that have formed from erosion over the last 500,000 years.

odell_20160912_3986-editYou’ll be treated to some amazing sunrises and sunsets and rock formations that could be mistaken for the moon. This safari is the perfect setting for photographers who not only want to photograph spectacular scenery, but also learn the behind the scenes techniques for processing and workflow, including HDR, infrared, and long exposures.

Each day, we will  download and process our images together as a group, get critiques, and learn new techniques to transform your photos into fine-art masterpieces. I will work with you to capture and process the best possible images into beautiful finished products. 

When: Sept. 17-21, 2017
Where: Wall, South Dakota (nearest airport: Rapid City)
