Join us in Myanmar (Burma) this December, with an option for Angkor Wat

pl_shwedagon_1514This is a pivotal year for Myanmar (which the US & UK know as Burma). With the election of a civilian government, suspension of international sanctions, and the beginning of a banking system and independent press it is poised to break out of decades of torpor into the 21st century. I’m excited to announce that I’ll be leading another photo tour there this December. We’ll hit some of the major tourist highlights, of course, but we’ll also venture to some places that most tourists never see and create some photo opportunities that would be almost impossible to achieve on your own.

Myanmar (Burma) Photo Tour December 2015

Dates: 
2015-12-04 11:00 - 2015-12-16 08:00

Explore Burma (Myanmar) for a glorious 13 days and 12 nights

No country is evolving more quickly, and more positively, than Myanmar (for now, Burma to the UK & US governments). Thousands of years of Buddhist sites, history and culture are now open for tourism. Yet, limited infrastructure has meant that it is still a pleasure to visit, and no people loves Americans more than the Burmese -- we have been solidly on their side since WWII.

We will visit, explore and photograph amazing temples, colorful markets, and unique lifestyles throughout the country. Destinations will range from the massive golden pagoda of the Shwedagon to the hand-made wooden boats and "one-legged" rowers of Inle Lake. 

For those who want to take advantage of the proximity of Angkor Wat and other Khmer temples, we may be able to offer an optional "pre-trip" to Cambodia (depending on interest level). Taken together, sites in Siem Reap (the Angkor Wat temple complex and surrounding sites) in Cambodia, along with Yangon, Bagan, and Mandalay in Burma (Myanmar) offer the opportunity of a lifetime to discover the legacy of several of the important cultures which form the Southeast Asian mosaic and to capture stunning images of lasting interest.

Maximum 8 photographers (usually sells out) 

[After a very successful 2014 event, we're looking forward to 2015]

This Harris Hawk image from our Rio Grande Valley Photo Safari won the Grand Prize in the 2012 National Wildlife Federation Photo CompetitionBased on the continued success of the Lens and Land (Images for Conservation) ranches in the Rio Grande Valley and the great trip we all had this year and last year (a sold out safari with a full set of satisfied participants), I'm pleased to announce that I'll be leading another photo safari to the Lens and Land ranches next May. We'll have 4 full days (and an optional 5th full day) of private shooting at the premier award winning Dos Venadas and Campos Viejos ranches which are only open to guided groups. Hardy Jackson, our co-host, won the most recent Valley Land Fund photo contest on his ranch, Campos Viejos so you'll have every chance to take similar award-winning images (most recently this Harris Hawk image won the Grand Prize in the 2012 NWF Photo Contest.)

Deluxe African Photo Safari -- Botswana December 2012

[Maximum 8 photographers, SOLD OUT]

If you'd like to see some of the best Africa has to offer, consider our September, 2013 trip to Zimbabwe and Zambia.

I'm pleased to announce our next trip back to the magical wildlife photography of the Okavango Delta and Linyanti/Savuti areas of Botswana. Once again we've been able to secure accommodations at several of the very best camps in the country--on private concessions in prime areas for photo safaris. We've made the trip modular so whether you only have a limited time to spend with us or the luxury of an extended safari you can participate. And we've added a special discount for non-shooting or casual shooting companions who don't need as much room and weight for camera gear. Read on to learn more...
