Yellowstone NP Photo Tour

2020-05-20T14:28:24-07:00May 20th, 2020|Wildlife Photography Blog|

Our Team Gary lives just outside Yellowstone for part of the year and knows the area well, along with the local photographers and guides. He takes care of all the details- all you have to do is enjoy yourself. Gary is in his element when in Yellowstone Pointing

Ardak, a master eagle falconer, training his golden eagle We went back to Mongolia in June of 2016 to continue the filming of our documentary called “The Twelfth Eagle”. The two main reasons we went back in the summer were to watch Ardak release his current eagle of 6 years for good, and watch him capture a new golden eagle chick to train. The capital, Ulan Bataar, at 70 degrees F in the summer is much better than -20 degrees F we had in our winter trip! There were three of us this time- Dr. Kennedy, Dr. Palazzolo, and Mary.

Botswana and the Okavango Delta

2020-05-18T20:34:36-07:00May 18th, 2020|Wildlife Photography Blog|

Four of my guests were from Michigan, one was from Nevada, and the rest from California. This is at Camp Moremi, at the Okavango Delta in Botswana. You will get a chance to see them in action later
