Galapagos Islands Workshop With Sony Artisan Don Smith & Former Sports Illustrated Staff Photographer Ron Modra

Sony Artisan Don Smith will be teaming-up with former Sports Illustrated staffer and landscape/wildlife/educator Ron Modra on an amazing 8-day photo adventure to the Galapagos Islands this upcoming May 8-16, 2020. They have 10 spots available and would love to have you join them.

The Galapagos Islands is one of the best locations in the world for wildlife photographers partly because, as Charles Darwin discovered nearly 200 years ago, some of the species that live there exist nowhere else in the world.

Amazingly, the creatures of the Galapagos remain unafraid of humans. They are more relaxed because they have no natural predators. They seem to know they're being photographed - the giant tortoises, huge land iguanas and blue-footed boobies hold still and pose as if on cue.

The Galapagos Islands are an exotic collection of mostly volcanic islands that seem to be stopped in time and are a destination on most serious photographers' bucket lists! This is truly a one-of-a-kind trip where you'll take unforgettable photos.
