Nature Photography Adventures is focused on designing and guiding small group nature photography adventures and teaching photography techniques.
Nature photographers Bob Harvey and Diane Kelsay guide small groups of photographers to exciting and unique natural, cultural and heritage destinations around the planet. Our photography adventures strive to achieve a balance among wildlife, landscape, abstract and macro photography. You will note that we love dramatic light - and we know how to plan for it and use it when we find it!
Our adventures feature one-on-one coaching in the field to full instruction on taking control of the design and technical aspects of creating images.
We bring an extensive knowledge base of photography, a unique relationship with tourism (which makes for great logistics) and a strong commitment to conservation. Our photography adventures are truly photography adventures designed by photographers for photographers – with a commitment to the natural and cultural treasures we visit.
All over the world, tourism has been shut down by the actions of countries and companies, as we work to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
That shutdown has sent guides and other employees of tour companies, restaurants, lodges, parks, and conservation efforts home - often without pay.
That shutdown has stopped the flow of money that governments use to manage and maintain parks and protected areas - and to prevent poaching and encroachments on natural areas.
That shutdown has left many conservation organizations and private reserves without the income they derive from visitors.
In short, the shutdown, while slowing the virus, has put the well-being of many people, protected places, special species, and our ability to travel to photograph them at risk.
The solution is to start the flow of visitors, especially photographers, as soon as the health risk lets up. To encourage that - and to send a message to the people, lodges, tour operators, conservation organizations, and governments that we are coming back - we have crafted the special offer below:
