This expert-led Galapagos photo tour is one part adventure and one part photography workshop.
Each of our Galapagos Photo Tours includes hands-on learning workshops with experienced photographers. Past tours have been run by National Geographic photographers Ivan Kashinsky and Karla Gachet. Throughotu each photo trip, you’ll have a rare opportunity to hone and improve your photography skills in an open learning environment with industry professionals.
Carefully created by Galakiwi and your photography instructors, each day of the Galapagos photography itinerary has been crafted to provide a mix of adventure and free time. As a land-based photography tour, visiting all the inhabited islands of the Galapagos, your free time will be spent in town getting to know the locals, instead of offshore on a boat.
On the activity side you may find yourself cycling through lush highlands one day, snorkeling with sea lions the next day or hiking to a seaside lookout.
Welcoming wildlife, including blue-footed booby birds, marine iguanas and sea lions, will present you with ample opportunities for close-up and action photography. The quaint towns and farms of the inhabited islands of the Galapagos will also provide you with a great contrast to the inviting wildlife of the archipelago. Photography opportunities abound and each day of this Galapagos photo trip takes advantage of the golden hours of morning and evening light.
On the photography workshop side, Ivan and Karla will provide advice on different aspects of photography and present a daily challenge. During the course of your Galapagos photo workshop, you’ll complete a project and share your photographic results with the rest of your group.
With plenty of one-on-one time and photo critiquing, this Galapagos photo tour is geared towards passionate amateur photographers wanting to learn more and enthusiasts who may feel that their skill level has hit a plateau and needs a spark.
Nightly recaps and photography chats will round out your days. Over the course of the workshop you’ll learn new skills and gain a deeper understanding of your personal shooting style and preferences. Following the guidance of your instructor you’ll finish this photography workshop armed with the tools needed to advance your hobby or career in photography.
