Every year Thom Hogan teaches one or two intensive photo workshops along with his teaching assistant, Tony Medici. All of these workshops feature teacher-to-student ratios of no more than 7:1 (more typically 5:1 or 6:1) with as much one-on-one interaction as you're comfortable. Lodging, food, and transportation are all first class even when we use our mobile tent camps in Africa; we don't want the logistics or practical things to get in the way of our photography. Thom uses award-winning tour operator Wilderness Travel to handle all the logistics for his International trips.
- Galapagos — November 24 to December 10, 2017 One Spot Open!
Limited to 14 students. We’ll be repeating 2015’s fantastic Galapagos experience in 2017 with a nearly identical tour. Bird expert Tony Medici will be the second instructor on this trip, and we’ll once again be using the three-masted Brigantine Mary Anne as our home. The crew and cook on the Mary Anne are among the best you’ll find in the islands, and will make your stay comfortable, enjoyable, and fun. We’ll also be bringing along two superb and knowledgable naturalists I work with, Carolina and Cecibel, so that we can keep our on-shore group size to two independent groups of eight as opposed to the usual sixteen that you find on other tours. It makes a difference in trying to get photos. A big difference. Coupled with a full two weeks touring the entire set of islands, you’ll have an incomparable Galapagos experience that can’t be matched. Galapagos 2017 Workshop Brochure. Contact Merrill Guzman at Wilderness Travel (800-368-2794 or 510-558-2488) to reserve a spot.
