SPECIALIZED SMALL GROUP PHOTO TOURS

Our photo tours are not workshop’s they are Birds and Wildlife Photography Tours. A photography tour is often less hands-on and the guide’s main task is to make sure you’re at the right place at the right time. While you’ll still get photography instructions, you’re more on your own when it comes to capturing the images and you’re more likely to see the guide using their own camera as well.

Our first question to Bird and Wildlife photographers is - what sort of photo tour are you looking for? There are two kinds of photographers and mostly they do not mix. If you are like the photographer’s in these photos we can provide exclusive private tours just for YOU!Our photo tours are for people who want great wildlife photos, not a massive bird trip list.

Throughout our last ten years at Manu Expeditions Birding tours we have recognized the emergence of photographers as a growing community, and have been regularly setting up customized tours for this distinct market, and so are offering these tours to cater for their significantly different needs. We will use our wealth of experience from operating bird and natural history tours to take you to the very best places to get memorable shots of birds and wildlife.



WE DO NOT CLAIM TO BE THE WORLD’S BEST PHOTOGRAPHERS, BUT WE CAN GET YOU THE BEST PHOTOS

We do have the best bird guides, and know intimately the behavior of birds and other animals, and therefore where to position you for getting a decent photo. All the guides use a well-maintained method of finding birds, playback, to bring the birds closer in to you where appropriate. That is the simple objective for these tours: to take you to the best places for nature photography, and get you in the best position to get quality wildlife photos. It is not about the guide getting a good photo; it is about YOU getting a good photo.



BIG LENS STATIC PHOTOGRAPHY

If you are a photographer such as in the last two photos using 800-1000mm lens then space and weight is an issue. These plus tripods take up a lot of space and area heavy. On this kind of PRIVATE tour, we use transport (bus or boat) to get from one photo location to another and porters can be provided if a walk is needed to get to a lick or lek.
