More than ample opportunities to photograph loons and great attention to lighting and backgrounds by Greg and Alan when maneuvering the boats into position. I didn't expect the opportunities to photograph the snipe, Virginia Rail, or sora—3 notoriously difficult birds to see. Amazing! The flicker was also a treat. Surprisingly, I enjoyed shooting in waders most of all! Plus, it's something I may be able to put into practice at home. And Ruddy Ducks, wow!

It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I'll never forget. Thank you for hosting this wonderful adventure!

Rebecca F.
Loons and More - Kamloops, BC
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.
Alex C.
West Coast Rookeries by Boat - Sarasota, Florida
I really appreciated Greg's supportive approach and his willingness to respond to our questions. His knowledge and experience did not come across in an arrogant way, but rather gave us access to the kind of gains that we could hope to make in improving our approach.
Daniel G.
West Coast Bird Rookeries by Boat - Sarasota, Florida
As a biologist, this trip was a thrilling and long awaited exposure to the tropics. I took my share of photos, too, but also enjoyed taking in the culture and scenery of Costa Rica. It was a very mellow, compatible group of people. The lodges chosen were perfect for our purposes and I'd like to visit them again. Thanks for organizing such a wonderful trip!
