The Photographer’s Guide to the Galapagos Islands
David DesRochers

Visiting the Galapagos Islands is a trip of a lifetime, especially for the serious nature photographer. The wildlife has no fear of humans so the opportunities to capture the intimate behavior of birds, sea lions and lizards are endless. There are challenges photographing in the Galapagos so it’s important to be prepared with the right equipment and an understanding of what to expect. Subjects to be discussed include travel, wildlife behavior, equipment, exposure, and composition.
