Join My Shoot
 

Important 1update (12 September 2021)

I have decided to curtail all commercial photography tours and, instead, switch to a 'join my shoot' format!

What that means is that I am opening up personal trips I have scheduled to a limited number of photographers who can come along on a cost-share basis!

My main objective on personal trips is to enjoy and make the most of amazing shoot locations; of course, that is always better when sharing the experience with like-minded photographers!

Everyone will be responsible for her/his travel costs to get to the shoot location.

I will arrange logistics for the photo safari and all ground costs will be split equally between all participants, myself included.

For now, I am leaving commercial tour information online below as I work through modifications to the website.

Trip costs will be substantially lower cost than those listed below.

I hope to have all website modifications completed by 30 September 2021.

Photo shoots in 2022
 

In addition to the trips listed below, I am currently in early planning stage for an epic mid-November 2022 Tibet landscape-oriented trip along the leeward side of the Himalayas (including Mt Everest and Mt Kailash).

My Bay of Fundy snow eagle tours/workshops are cancelled but for anyone wanting to photograph snow eagles between mid-January and early-March 2022 in Nova Scotia, I am happy to take up to 3-people at a time for one or more days in the field. You take care of your own costs getting to and staying in Halifax, and I will bring you along on for my daily action-filled winter sessions!

I will also offer preferential one-on-one winter eagle and owl winter shoots for my NFT collectors.

Until I revise the website, I will leave the tour information online to give an idea of how winter eagle shoots work.

My two previously scheduled commercial tours for Kenya are being combined into a single 15-day long cost-share safari that will include stops in Samburu National Reserve, Lake Nakuru National Park, the Masai Mara National Reserve, and Lake Naivasha.

Until I revise the website, I will leave the prior tour information online.

Dates for 2022 will be 05-19 May and 28 October to 11 November.

If anyone would like to brave all the Covid travel-related complications in November 2021, I am tentatively planning on doing this trip myself - I will make a final decision in mid-October.

I have fixed dates for grizzly bear photo safaris booked for 2022.

For the Taku (northwest British Columbia) trip, we can have up to 8 photographers in total; for Bear Cave Mountain (northern Yukon), I have space for 3 photographers.

I will be giving preferential early access for these trips to my grizzly bear NFT collectors.

Photo shoots in 2023

 

I am planning on Kenya photo safaris in May and November 2022, visiting similar locations as for 2022.

Grizzly bear shoots in the Taku and Bear Cave Mountain will also be on tap again for the autumn.

In 2023, note that I have two full weeks booked at Bear Cave camp!

I will replace the commercial tour information below with a cost-share update once I have it ready.
 

Luxury Kenya photo safari - May 2023Luxury Kenya photo safari - May 2023Join me in Kenya in November 2022 for an incredible luxury wildlife and landscape photo safari!

The Masai Mara is globally renowned for its abundance and diversity of wildlife. Lake Naivasha, a wetland of international significance in the Rift Valley, is one of the world’s premier action-oriented eagle photography locations. There are relatively few tourists in Kenya in November, the plains are green, there are lots of young animals, and the weather is somewhat unstable, making for wonderful big skies and epic African landscapes.

Over 6 full-days and 2 half-days of photography, will be able to shoot a wide range of different types of wildlife, birds, and landscapes. Throughout the safari we stay at luxury camps located near the heart of the photo action.

For more information on the photo safari, see the links to my tours in my profile or send me a message.

I have already reserved Bear Cave Mountain photo safari slots for 2024 to 2026; dates will remain the same as for the commercial tours posted below, but costs will be lower. 

Please note that I currently have only a single spot available for 2024, and that in 2026 I have the two full weeks of the season, when bears are in full 'ice bear' mode.
