All-Inclusive Birding Photo Safari in the Trinidadian Rainforest

Photograph unique rainforest birds like the violaceous euphonia in Trinidad with Jason Odell

The island of Trinidad, tucked away in the southern Caribbean, will always be special to me. In the late 1990’s, I spent several weeks there conducting field research as part of my doctoral dissertation. On a day off, I visited the Asa Wright Nature Centre and marveled at all the birds from their veranda. Now, I’m happy to announce an exclusive small-group photo safari to Trinidad in June, 2018.

Join me in Trinidad for bird photography

For 2018, I’ve listened to your feedback and I’m taking smaller groups (6-8) for a more personalized experience. I’m also offering more birding safaris, as it’s something many people have been asking about. I’m also offering photo tours, including another photo cruise to Alaska!

My philosophy is simple:  photography is a craft. I believe you learn the most when you immerse yourself in the complete workflow of photography (visualization/capture/processing) for more than just a morning or afternoon.
