Greg B. and E.J. were wonderful. The trip met all my expectations and I obtained most of the photos that I wanted. Greg is outstanding with his knowledge of Costa Rica and his friendship with many people that allowed us much better opportunities for outstanding photography. Also, we also could not have done this trip without Jóse, who is more than the bus driver. He is an integral part of the team and he has great photography skills also. This was my second trip to Costa Rica with Naturescapes/Foto Verde and this year outdid last year. I really did not want to leave!

Hummingbirds and More - Costa Rica
I most enjoyed the beautiful scenery and the experience of the ice, glaciers, geysers, the up-close and hands-on with sweet and pretty horses, and being so close to the puffins on the cliffs.
Penny C.
Ultimate Iceland Summer Adventure
Probably most impressive was the willingness of Greg and Alan to share their expertise on an individual basis to try and ensure we all met our personal objectives for the trip. They took a personal interest and responsibility to make sure everything reached maximum potential. Thanks once again for an exceptional workshop.

Loons and More - Kamloops, BC
Just back from Tanzania with Greg Downing. What an amazing trip and experience. The wildlife photography was incredible. The guides outstanding. Wonderful memories for a lifetime. Seeing the Discovery Channel or Animal Planet come to life in front of me was the most memorable. In particular, I enjoyed seeing the wildebeest migration and the cheetah hunting.

Ultimate Africa Experience - Tanzania
Nikhil was an informative and gracious leader.
Donald M.
Rookeries by Boat and Fort Desoto Park - Florida
Thanks for the great photographic experience and instruction. My intent in taking this workshop was to get my creativity kick-started and get out of my visual comfort zone. With Nikhil's instruction and insight I made a significant move in that direction. Over the past 12 years I have taken a number of photographic workshops. This one was the best, making me look at the subject from different perspectives and capturing images that were more creative. The small class size, Nikhil's insight and expertise, and individual attention made the difference between this class and the others. Additionally, the accommodations and restaurants were well chosen, adding to the enjoyment. I hope to take another one of Nikhil's workshops in the near future.
