Workshop Testimonials

I recently had the opportunity to travel to the Falkland Islands with NatureScapes led by Greg Downing. It was the trip of a lifetime for me and one that I had been dreaming about for many years. While I hoped for a great trip, this one exceeded my expectations by tenfold. We visited four islands, each one unique in its own right regarding birds, mammals, and the weather. Great, comfortable hiking opportunities, and we were able to observe and photograph every species that we had hoped for.

I have taken several workshops in the past but Greg Downing is now my go-to guy for the future. Highly professional, competent, organized, helpful and just an all-around pleasure to be with. It was truly a wonderful experience.

Ultimate Falklands - Falkland Islands
This is the 2nd NatureScapes workshop that I have attended. Greg Downing is a great teacher and photographer. His trips are very informative and fun. The afternoon lectures are exceptionally good—you definitely get your money's worth. I look forward to attending more of Greg's workshops in the future.

Words like ‘ultimate’ are readily used in the hype and spiel of a sales pitch. I have taken other African tours and none matched the meaning of ‘ultimate.’ Greg's trip, on the other hand, fit the bill of ‘ultimate’ perfectly. Great schedule, nice weather, good food and lodging, outstanding drivers, and awesome photographic opportunities in our dawn to dusk game drives. Bravo Greg!

Ultimate Africa Experience - Tanzania
Piper was instrumental in making this workshop a success. She was timely, organized, and helpful with photography questions. She worked well with the guides to get them in the best positions. She was mindful of each client's needs; those needing a little guidance and those needing more. She worked hard to see that she rode with everyone equally in the vehicles to share her expertise and to see how they were doing.

I was very happy with this workshop. As a new bird photographer, I am on a steep learning curve but took away many new skills both in the field and at the computer.

Loons and More - Kamloops, BC
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!
