Wildlife Photography in Panama
January 12 - January 20, 2013

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Panama, known primarily for its famous canal, is also a marvel of rich biodiversity. As the land bridge connecting the South and North American continents, Panama features a wide variety of habitats, including a lowland rainforest, mangroves, and tropical dry and cloud forests. Almost 1000 species of birds, approximately 250 mammal species, and almost 10.000 different plants, can be found in an area slightly smaller than South Carolina.

For photographers interested in natural history, Panama is a paradise. A mere 45 minutes from the international airport, we immerse ourselves in a primary lowland rain forest. The rain forests surrounding and supporting the water supply of the Panama Canal are a fantastic place to get to know the dazzling tropical diversity in a safe and logistically comfortable setting. With just a 50-minute local flight west, we find ourselves in the middle of amazing cloud forests, with huge tropical trees covered in epiphytes resembling a setting straight out of a fairy tale.

In this workshop, National Geographic photographer Christian Ziegler introduces you to photographing in a tropical rain forest environment and shares its special and unique aspects. During the workshop we spend three days in Central Panama, including two days on Barro Colorado Island, the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute's famous field station. The remaining three days we spend in the cloud forests of Western Panama's Chiriqui province.
