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.

You can see David’s work on his web site.

Camino de Santiago: A Photo Walk in Spain
Peter Steeper

In May 2022 I walked 115 kilometres on the Camino de Santiago with my granddaughter. It was my second Camino and her first. In 2019 I walked over 700 kilometres on the Camino Frances. In a normal year over 300,000 people do the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela.
This presentation features images from our pilgrimage plus other images of our European trip. I’ll also provide a few tips for people planning to walk long distances with their camera gear.

Sampling Natural Wonders of South America and Antarctica

Sampling the Natural Wonders of South America and Antarctica
Jim Neale

South America spans more lines of latitude than any other continent… and subsequently offers a huge range of environments for one to explore photographic interests. Over roughly 12 months Jim and his wife Donna have visited a few of South America’s many natural wonders including the Galapagos, the Amazon, Torres del Paine, the glaciers of Argentina, and Iguazu Falls. They visited Ushuaia (southernmost tip of South America) in search of a last minute (cheaper) fare to Antarctica. They lucked out and had the good fortune to experience the Antarctic Peninsula’s harsh and isolated landscape from venturing out in small zodiacs. It was both awe inspiring and humbling.

Jim will share some of his experiences, images and musings about independent and budget travel in South America… and one might get to Antarctica for a reasonable cost.

Bio:
Jim took up photography far too late in his life. He considers himself a wanderer and an opportunist – searching for compelling places and moments and then attempting to capture them in images. He makes up for his modest photographic skills with an adventurous spirit that occasionally gets remarkable subject matter in his viewfinder. Jim’s photographic interests tend to focus on sport and travel, which can be previewed on his Flickr page: https://www.flickr.com/photos/jimneale/albums
