I’ve always been energized at the camera by going to a new place, and that’s just one of the many reasons I’m looking forward to next spring, when we head to Ecuador. Never been there, and I’ve heard amazing things about the visual nature of the rainforest, and the city of Quito, both of which are destinations on this adventure. Dates are: March 23 – April 1, 2020.
Other reasons to be happy? I’m teaching with two of the truly stellar photogs walking the planet with a camera right now, Ami Vitale and Tamara Lackey. The three of us, all Nikon Ambassadors, will be teaching in triumvirate fashion, leading our group for a bit over a week through the bustling city of Quito, and then departing for the sumptuous, spectacular La Selva Lodge. The place is off the charts in terms of being situated safely in the midst of the lush scenery of the Amazon. We’ll be doing natural history tours with experienced guides, observing landscapes, wildlife, and flora and fauna indigenous to the region.
We’ll be photographing beautiful scenery and people as well. The days will be full. Tamara, Ami and I are experienced in just about any genre of photography, and we are available to the class all week, nonstop. Breakfast, lunch and dinner together as a group. Nightly slide shows, critiques, tech advice, Q&A, all week.
Once you get to Quito, Ecuador, basically all else is taken care of, from deluxe accommodations and touring in Quito, to the transit by short plane and river boats to La Selva where we will settle in!
This is a one-off, and an amazing time awaits.
