Many budding photographers will be familiar with the frustration experienced when striving to get that sublime wildlife shot. Patiently waiting for the perfect opportunity, before creeping quietly towards your subject, ready to click … but then a rustle of undergrowth spooks said subject and it flies, scuttles, swims or, indeed, slithers away! The Galapagos Islands, however, are a photographer’s paradise – here your muse will bask in the sun and frolic in the sea utterly undeterred by your presence, and will usually happily pose for hours.
Famed local photographers will help you capture and preserve your trip to the Galápagos Islands in beautiful photographs. Travelers will learn basic lighting tips, receive a printed guide featuring images of the Galápagos’ endemic creatures, and participate in a farewell slideshow featuring some of the finest work produced during the sailing. This photography sailing will be held on the Origin.
You will be accompanied by the renowned Ecuadorian photographer Antonio Adrian on board the Origin, a Relais & Chateaux Luxury Cruise designed for only 20 guests.
Antonio Adrian is a naturalist and photographer, Antonio will help you better understand your camera as well as the technicalities of composition and framing to help you take that perfect shot, whilst enlightening you about the flora and fauna that surround you on a trip to the Galapagos. Just like Darwin, Antonio has always been looking for higher adventures, traveled extensively around the globe and would one day like to grow a long white beard. He has degrees in environmental and educational sciences, has published various books, articles, and essays on natural history, evolution and environmental management, and believes that humor and non-formal education are valid tools for teaching about our natural world. And if all this isn’t enough, he is also a qualified diving specialist and, of course, a certified photography instructor. All in all, a perfect companion for a voyage around the Galapagos.
