Maui, Hawaii USA
Leader(s): Tom Mace
Difficulty Level: Easy/Beginner
Whale Photography in Paradise When people think of Hawaii;they think of summer vacation, beaches, and relaxation. What many people overlookare the warm winters, lush tropical landscapes, and spectacular wildlife Maui has to offer. February is one of the best times to visit. Over 10,000 Humpback whales return to give birth, mate and nurse their young. Hawaii is the only state in the US where birthing and mating occurs. Why do whales choose Hawaii? Some ofthe same reasons we do;warm clear water, shallow depths, and lack of predators. Maui is the premier photography location as the depths in the Maui channel do not exceed 200 ft. In February, we witnessed over 100 breaches from our hotel Lanai. You learn quickly there is a big difference between seeing and experiencing these majestic mammals when you are on a boat, within 100 yards of a breach, camera in hand.

We round out this itinerary with other incredible photography opportunities. We experience a spiritual Haleakala sunrise, travel and photograph along the historic 64 mi. Hana Highway, and spend time in a unique lava field landscape. Our objectives are to give photographers a chance to scratch items off their bucket list while we work with you to improve your nature photography skills. Your hosts for this trip have been fortunate enough to visit Maui 5 times and understand the island culture, best locations to stay, and where to put photographers in position to capture all the beauty and mystery this island has to offer.



We leverage our partners on Maui to keep costs down. When you consider what is included; high end resort on the beach with ocean views, experienced guides, photography expertise, meals, excursions, all ground transportation, even a Luau.There are not many companies who can bundle this same trip at these prices.

Included in this Trip:
-4 Boat excursions to get up close and photograph Humpback Whales, including one sunset dinnercruise.
-1 guided trip to the summit of Haleakala Crater to photograph a sunrise, weather permitting.
-1 trip to Hana and Back, capturing Seascapes, Waterfalls, and Rainforest along the way
-1 trip to the Wailea Lava Fields
-1 Luau, VIP seating
-Multiple Sunrise and Sunset opportunities
-All Meals, minus one dinner. We want you to experience Kaanapali or Lahaina with your partner.
-High end beachfront resort in Kaanapali steeped in Hawaiian culture and tradition
-Built in downtime for exploring, hanging out at the beach. Also a good time to review post processing with anyone in need of assistance.

Windhoek, Namibia
Leader(s): Eduardo Braz
Difficulty Level: Moderate/Intermediate
Namibia is a vast country, even by African standards, covering an area approximately four times the size of the United Kingdom but with a population of a mere 2.6 million one of the lowest densities in the world. It is also an ageless land; visible through a heritage of rock art created by stone-age artists and geological attractions such as the Organ Pipes and the Erongo Mountains. Added to the space and silence, these all contribute to a feeling of antiquity, solitude and wilderness.

The climate is typical of a semi-desert country. Days are warm to hot and nights are generally cool. Temperatures are modified by the high plateau in the interior and by the cold Benguela current that runs along the Atlantic coastline on the west of the country. Except for the first few months of the year, the country is generally dry with very little rain. We will have our own professional and experienced safari guide who will enhance our enjoyment of this unique country by making it a fascinating and stress-free journey of discovery amidst very dramatic scenery. The knowledge, experience and attitude of our guides are critical to a successful safari they are both personable and very professional.

This workshop is for you if you are looking for multiple photographic opportunities in a deserted and dramatic environment. It is a safe, carefree naturally beautiful space where you will feel at ease when doing what you really enjoy - making fantastic images!
