These spring/summer safaris are both a
wildlife chase (black bears, songbirds) as well as a landscape shoot. In
other words, we will shoot anything cool we see. There could
be mosquitoes, so citrus
based repellants are a must. We do some walking on this safari, usually several
miles on relatively flat trails - so comfortable boots are a must.
We check some meadows in the morning, take a break for lunch, then
usually walk to at least 1 or 2 meadows in the afternoon.
The mornings are cool, warming to pleasant
temps in the afternoon. We usually go for
lunch, but you are welcome to bring your own lunch if you want.
Difficulty Level :
Hard - lots of walking
safari requires a longer telephoto or zoom lens, both for
the black bears and the small songbirds we no doubt will
We can meet at my home in Tulare or at a hotel in Visalia or
Tulare at 5am, or in Three Rivers on Highway 198 at 6am in the Pizza Factory parking lot. We will stop for lunch, then shoot again in the
afternoon. We will photograph everything that looks good:
black bears, mule deer,

I've spent my 40-year wildlife photography career shooting
in the American West. The first 24
years shooting out of Utah, the past 16 years out of
California. The photo safaris that I lead are all to
the best locations, at the best times, during peak wildlife
activity periods. What a rush it has been.
