Discover The Wildlife of Panama

Photographing wildlife in Bocas del Toro, Panama

In 2019, I visited Isla Bastimentos in Panama for a week of wildlife photography.

In 2019, I had the opportunity to spend a week at the Tranquilo Bay Eco Adventure Lodge in Bocas del Toro, Panama. I discovered Panama’s incredibly rich biodiversity, with hundreds of species of birds, mammals, and reptiles. This is my story of that experience!

Join me in Panama Sept 19-25, 2021

Croatian Coast by Luxury Yacht: Oct. 7-17, 2021

Discover the ancient cities along the Adriatic Coast on a 8-day cruise aboard a chartered yacht. Unlike traditional cruises, we’ll be aboard a 30-passenger yacht and spending nights in ports of call. That means we’ll be able to explore each city on our itinerary during the peak times for photography, including sunset and twilight. Along the way, you’ll get expert photographic instruction, learn mobile workflow, and discover creative approaches to travel photography with professional photographer Jason P. Odell.
