with Marc Muench
May 31 - June 10, 2013

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Join Andy Williams and Marc Muench on this adventure of a lifetime, to one of the world's premier landscape and wildlife destinations, The Galapagos Islands. After acclimating in Guayaquil, Ecuador, we'll have 8 days and 7 nights aboard our own exclusive yacht, the M/V Eric / Letty / Flamingo. We'll have two naturalist guides with us in addition to Andy and Marc, and we have exclusive access to areas that the big boats can't get to, and most importantly, as long as we follow the rules of the Galapagos National Park, we have the ability to go ashore on our own schedule, we won't miss the best light and sightings like other trips. If we're having a blast ashore, and we choose to stay late, no worries, our dinner will still be waiting for us! We'll walk in the footsteps of Charles Darwin who visited here in the 1830s on the HMS Beagle, and we'll try to channel his experiences as he formulated his theory of natural selection.

The Galapagos Islands are the wildlife photography holy grail. This means that you can literally walk right up to hundreds of blue-footed boobie birds, red-footed boobie birds, masked boobie birds, albatrosses, penguins, land iguanas, marine iguanas, lava lizards, sea lions, fur seals, red-chested frigate birds, flamingos, finches, tropic birds, lava gulls, giant tortoises, and flightless cormorants. Oh and don't forget the massive amount of marine wildlife that can be explored with simple snorkel gear (always available on our yacht!).

We'll maximize our shooting time with the best photo ops - getting up early for sweet light and chasing it well into the evening. The entire yacht is ours, our daily "schedule" is controlled by us and no one else. We'll have the option each night for critiques, instruction and interpretive talks with our naturalists as well. Or, sit back and enjoy a book from the library, watch the dolphins swim, or gaze at the equatorial sky from the deck.

View complete details.

So, what does "all inclusive" mean? It means that from the time we meet until the time we disembark, except for a few minor expenses in Guyaquil (see "what's not included" below, you won't need to pay for anything. All photography instruction, critiques, breakfasts in Guayaquil, all meals on board our yacht, round trip transportation and transfer from hotel to Guayaquil Airport to Galapagos, park fees, Ecuadorian exit fees, and rooms are included in the workshop fee. Once on board our yacht, you can stow that wallet, you won't need it!

Iguana Deck, all inclusive. Limited to 18 guests. Please mention that you learned about this opportunity through Santa Fe Photographic Workshops. As of December 12th, we're nearly full. Discounted $5,895 price is good until December 31, 2012!
