Canadian Wildlife Photography Tours and Expeditions

Great Trips, Great Groups, Great Prices!

 

Canadian Wildlife Photography Tours offers photography tours and expeditions intended to get you to fantastic wildlife photography locations throughout Canada for a reasonable price with a good group of like-minded photographers.

 

The primary focus of all of our tours is on wildlife photography from dawn until dusk in some of Canada’s premier wildlife viewing places. These are strictly photo tours, so unlike my photography workshops that place an emphasis on learning and photography instruction, these tours are geared towards getting out there and getting great shots. Because of this, these tours are primarily designed for more advanced wildlife photographers that don’t require a lot of tutelage. Myself or one of my photo tour leaders will be photographing right alongside you, making sure that we go to the best spots at the best times of day with guidance from the tour operators that we have chosen to travel with on these tours and expeditions.

 

With this in mind, I have sought out tour operators that are familiar with working with wildlife photographers and with the special demands that we can place on an operator. And more importantly, I’ve selected small, personal companies that offer premium trips to exotic Canadian locales, places that I had a strong desire to visit, or revisit, and photograph in, like the Arctic and the Great Bear Rainforest. I have contracted with these operators to book entire trips with them at their normal rates, which I am able to pass along to you with little or no markup.

 

The advantages to booking a wildlife photography tour with Canadian Wildlife Photography Tours are three-fold: one, you occasionally get opportunities to go on trips that are not normally available for single photographers on their own. Two, you get to bypass the small operators’ normal clientele, which can include a mix of people that may or may not be interested in wildlife photography. On each of our tours, you will be with a group of wildlife photographers intent on getting to the best spots and utilizing every last second of daylight to maximize your photographic opportunities. And finally, three, if you do have photography-related questions, I’ve always got either myself or another professional photographer as a tour leader to provide answers and advice throughout your tour.

 

Please check below for our confirmed and tentative tours/dates for 2021 and 2022. If you would like to be updated when new trips are finalized or existing ones are changed or to be put on a wait list, please contact me.

 

Please note that previous tour and workshop clients are given first priority for all tours and workshops when they are announced. Many trips do fill up before they are ever offered to the public/new clientele. All tours require proof of vaccination.
