Workshop Testimonials
VIEW ALL »
I had high expectations when I signed up for the workshop, based on NatureScapes' sponsorship and Nikhil's photographs and eBook. Those high expectations were fully met. Each outing was well planned, with adequate time allowed for hiking to alternate locations when footprints went farther out than hoped. All the locations were superb. Nikhil's coaching has me looking for balance and seeing layers everywhere I look.

White Sands is a dazzling, unique area, and Nikhil took us to spectacular locations within the park. His teaching method of illustrating a composition or technique and then encouraging each of us with our own compositions, while pointing out the details we need to take care with to make our photos better, works really well for me.

We also had a terrific group of people. It was so much fun to meet new people, get to know them a bit, and see their photos. Where else can you meet other people who think it's fun to hike 2 miles in the dark when it's 12F?

As I've experienced before with NatureScapes, Greg’s photographic expertise, teaching talents, organization skills, sense of humor, and calm demeanor made it an outstanding experience.

I had a great, relaxing time with Greg and the other students. It was a fun and stress-free time and I left the class shooting at a higher level than when I went in, especially for using longer lenses.

West Coast Rookeries by Boat - Sarasota, Florida
I was very impressed with the effort our leaders went to assure that we had a variety of shooting opportunities. At no point did I feel that this was simply their ‘job’ but genuinely loved photography and sharing that with us.

Alan and Greg really went the extra mile to make sure there were always photo opportunities, or if it was just too rainy or windy, to share presentations. And they make it fun! I was expecting a lot of down time (being realistic about the weather), but we kept going!

If you want to get the most out of photographing an area or species, learn a lot, get the best photos, and have a lot of fun with great people while doing it, these are the trips for you!

Puffins and More - St. Paul Island, Alaska
My first trip to Africa, and I am so glad we were able to experience it with Greg at the helm. The itinerary was good. We were able to see diverse habitat and animals, of which there were plenty! Greg is very good at showing me what to take photos of, especially guiding me to try more artistic shots as well. I found that exciting! Also, getting the habitat in the photo, not just concentrating on the animals filling the frame. I was so happy when Greg helped me! It got me excited about trying new ways to see and photograph my surroundings, because there were many times I experienced "sensory overload" with animals everywhere! What to photograph? Vast landscapes as far as the eye can see... how to capture that? Greg helped me. And he has a very calm and easy manner. In a nutshell, he's a very good instructor. And he was very knowledgeable of the area. He knew where to go and we kept going. At a good pace, I think. So overall, I can say it was fantastic! Thanks Greg!
