Ecuador Photo Workshop 15th to 23 (+3) October 2020 & 2021

In only 9 days (basic workshop) you will be able to learn Extreme Macro, Regular Macro and High Speed Photography and take pictures like a pro.

Inflight hummingbirds, maybe even amphibians and bats!

My goal is to show you all techniques and also to show you my favorite spots in this incredible country. You will come back home with dozens of award winning captures ;)

Depending on your needs, we will fine tune the itinerary to fit your needs..

I can also provide a fully customizable 3 day extension if you want to capture wild animals in remote places, etc.. Ask me for other dates!

We can plan the trip of your life together.

We will be taking pictures of the most incredible animals in Ecuador, not only in the wild but in some other spots were we will be able to photograph some endangered species we would otherwise never find in the wild.

Max group size 2!

Almost all companies claim to have small groups of up to 8 max, and honestly, this is insane! Trying to teach such a big group is not easy and is far less productive. It is also uncomfortable to travel (Ecuador orography can be pretty irregular, and with a fully loaded van, pretty annoying).

We will travel with the biggest and latest 4x4 SUV available.

Length: 9 days (extra 3 day extension is optional).

Starting point: Quito Airport, pickup and after short drive we reach to our hotel for some rest (itinerary may vary).

Pace: relaxed, not many walks but some intense photography work! Physical difficulty: Very easy, only light walk in amazing spots.

Cost of the Workshop: 4000$/person (all accomodations designed for 1 person per room, so if you are traveling alone you won't have to pay additional charges, exactly, NO Single-Supplement).

A 1000$ deposit for securing the spot is required for hotel reservations etc..

I will then require full payment for the workshop by 60 days out from the trip starting date. 3 days optional extension is 550$.

WORKSHOP LEADER: Nicolas Reusens & local guides.
