Wildlife photo-tours and workshops organised by David Osborn FRPS EFIAP BPE5

 

 

Wildlife Photo-tours

All of my Photo-tours are tailor made specifically for photographers of all experience levels but with a special interest in Wildlife and Outdoor photography.

The tours are led and escorted throughout by either David or Dawn Osborn, both of whom are Nature 'Fellows' of the Royal Photographic Society and have a lifetime of in depth experience as photographers.

At Photo-tours group size and experience really counts - I've been organising and leading specialist tours and expeditions for over 25 years.

We are experts in photo-tours to the Falkland Islands. I've been traveling there since the late eighties and the 2017 tour will be the 18th group that I've taken, 2018 will also be my 22nd visit to Florida and after ten years we're rapidly gaining experience in Yellowstone, so by specialising we know exactly where we're going and that's very important to us and the best way for you to get the best images.

Size does count so my group sizes are always kept small with normally no more than 7 clients on each tour. In this way and most importantly we can preserve the exclusivity of your photography and your comfort both of which are vitally important to me, large groups and quality imaging definitely do not go hand in hand and availability on all of the tours is therefore always limited.

Although Photo-tours are not designed specifically as workshops with tutorial sessions,  photographers of all experience levels are welcomed, for those requiring a little help and advice at whatever level, help is always on hand and only needs to be asked for.

 

Norfolk Workshops

Inquiries for One to One and small group workshops are always welcomed.

These can be tailored to meet your individual specific needs and are available for photographers of all experience levels.

Prices start from £150 per day. If you would like 'in the field' tuition or just an escorted photo day , please do e-mail to discuss.                      

 

All of the information on tour schedules and availability is accurately maintained and up to date - Customer comment and feedback appears at page bottom.

The only way to experience the real Yellowstone in winter is to go inside the park by snow coach and David's tour has 8 full days exploring the park in a group dedicated snow coach - this was more than any other tour that I could find. The trip was very well organised with fine accommodation and meals. David is a naturalist as well as an expert photographer who has an intimate feel for Yellowstone and as such he was able to make informed choices on a day to day basis of where and when to go for the best images. David was always around to give support and advice, if required, but was also comfortable in encouraging you to do your own thing (always with safety and animal welfare in mind). I looked long and hard at the various trips on offer before choosing this one. I am quite sure that I made the right choice and I would highly recommend this trip to anyone.

 Thanks David for a fabulous Falklands tour. My second visit was every bit as awesome as my first and of course the wildlife photography opportunities are endless - just not enough time to do everything. I really appreciate the freedom we have in a small group to do what we want, either with one or two other people or just being on our own and exploring at your own pace. I am certain that your Falklands tours are the very best.

Liz Cutting ARPS. 

Many thanks, David, for an excellent photo tour of the Falkland Islands. The trip was very well organised and ran smoothly. The magic, however came from your knowledge of the Islands and it's wildlife. This put us in the right places, so we could photograph, video or just watch the animals' many behaviours and interactions. I was amazed to be able to photograph two huge Elephant Seals sparring with each other and then, without moving, to also photograph a tiny grass wren singing. So many opportunities. It was a truly memorable trip which we can heartily recommend to others.

Ken & Lyn Rasmussen 

A superb trip to the Falklands with David in 2016. The organisation was excellent and the opportunities to get up close to photograph wildlife are unbelievable. Many thanks for the photographic experience of a lifetime!

 Ken Harrison

Just back from a great two weeks in Falklands as part of David's 2016 trip. We went with him in 2014 and were really pleased to be able to go again. The group was good and the wildlife was excellent. Plenty of opportunities for great shots and David always available to offer advice and feedback.

Phil & Sarah Jones 

Yellowstone is a fabulous place for photography but the opportunities are even better when you are with someone who knows the area well and the best places to go. As ever, well organised and thoroughly enjoyable. I have great memories and some really pleasing images from my trip and I would be pleased to join you again on another Yellowstone tour in the future.

Liz. 

We really enjoyed our trip to Yellowstone in the winter which was superbly organised by David. Yellowstone is a magical place in winter and we got some stunning images of the scenery and the wildlife.  

Judy & Mike Smith 

 Thank you for a wonderful days training. It was refreshing, informative and fun! I would recommend you to anyone who wants to improve their photography.

Roger Taylor 

 Many thanks, David for a very enjoyable and informative one to one on flower photography. You covered everything that I hoped you would and much, much more. With your patience and guidance I was able to try out many new approaches and settings and to understand the effect they have on my images. I came away with some very pleasing images and with many ideas to put into practise. I can highly recommend you as a tutor.

Helen Gerstner 

David's photographic tours are very special. He only goes to a limited number of destinations which enables him to know these places intimately and this gives the photographer great photographic opportunities. The trips are well organised and suitable for all abilities and David is always on hand to give good advice and help if and when required.

David Robinson ARPS.

Thank you for the excellent trip to Florida. I found being in the company of other photographers to be an excellent opportunity to learn from others, and yourself in particular.

David Wessely ARPS. 

2014 was my fourth trip to the Falkland Islands with David, it certainly exceeded my expectations with unique opportunities for stunning images and great company to share them with.

Jane Greatorex ARPS. 

Thanks for a fabulous Falklands fortnight! The organisation was exemplary (yet completely unobtrusive) and the relaxed and flexible programme allowed everyone to choose how to spend most of their time. Your skills as a naturalist and a photographer combined with your knowledge and experience of the Falklands put you in a unique position to lead the tour. The wildlife experience was unbelievable. Absolute magic. I shall be back.

Liz Cutting ARPS.

Falklands 2014 was the first trip that we'd taken with David and we enjoyed every moment. The wildlife is spectacular and approachable and David's advice and guidance was much appreciated. A great opportunity to photograph stunning wildlife. We both want to repeat the visit in the future.

Phil & Sarah Jones.

 Super trip, really enjoyed it, lots of wildlife and stunning scenery. Well organised and thoroughly recommended.

Judy & Mike Smith 

Many, many thanks for an absolutely superb trip to Yellowstone. It was everything I expected and more.

 Jane Rees ARPS.

Florida as with my first trip was very well planned, varied and resulted in my getting some very pleasing images. It seems that whatever activity I join, whether it is a photo-tour, workshop or one to one you always go the extra mile to ensure an enjoyable, informative and photographically productive outcome. 

Ken Rasmussen ARPS.

Excellent small group photo-tours. We've now been on several of them and recommend them all. In every trip we were taken to many locations with plenty of opportunity to take stunning photographs.

Kevin Maskell FRPS & Margery Maskell ARPS.

David's experience enables him to get his groups to the right places at the right time. On our travels with him we have experienced superb photographic opportunities, and have always been given enough time to explore them thoroughly. Help is there when you need it, presented in a way that leaves the creative process in your hands. Add the stimulus of being part of a group sharing a common interest, and you have the complete photographic package.

Liz  

Thanks, I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Yellowstone. I have some great photos both of the wildlife and the beautiful scenery thanks to you. You know the best locations and the best time to be there.
