Land-based Falkland Islands Dec 30, 2017- Jan 13, 2018.
Join award winning photographer’s, Denise Ippolito and Paul McKenzie for what will be an amazing two week expedition to the Falkland Islands. We have hand selected each and every stop to maximize our time in the Falklands. This is a land-based trip and will not require any long boat excursions. During this photo tour we have chosen to make the”Neck” our highlight, the “Neck” is considered the true gem of the Falklands. We will have the chance to photograph a large variety of approachable bird species including at least four species of penguins; king, magellanic, rockhopper and gentoo. Albatross, Striated Caracara, King Cormorants, Rock Cormorants and many other shorebirds, seabirds and passerines. We will also have the opportunity to photograph Elephant seals and Southern Sea Lions. Most of the species on the Falklands have no fear of man and we will be able to get extremely close to our subjects. Strict Limit of 6.

    Do you think that I could do this trip or would it be to hard?

    Hi Carlotta, it is relatively easy as compared to the Southern Oceans trip where you have crossings and zodiacs to shore. On this trip we fly from Island to Island and then sleep on land-there are no boats involved and no hard seas. But there is some walking to some of the sites. The one Island I have arranged for a car so that I can drive folks to the locations. I think you could handle it as you have done Nickerson and that is a fair amount of walking. If at anytime you thought it was too much we could try to work out a solution. I thought it was a cake walk.

    This Falkland Islands workshop looks like the trip of a lifetime. If I wasn’t already booked with you (and the airlines) for Alaska and then Kenya in 2017, I would be signing up now. Unfortunately, I just can’t get away from my office for 3 trips in late 2017, and both your Kodiak Bears and Kenya trips are also absolute bucket listers for me. But wow this trip looks great.

    Thanks Jim, it is great! Maybe in 2108.

    Wonderful adventures Denise, and now that I live in So Florida have a technical question about birds i.e. is there a right way for a bird to face for competition? Recent critiquing said birds face left not right. So, are there rules as to which way birds face? Thank you.

    Hi Elaine, as a general guideline they should face into the frame as opposed to facing out of the frame, however, if you have a bird that is looking out of the frame and it makes sense to the scene than I think it is fine. Also whether or not it faces left or right-that goes along with the thoughts that we read right to left and I do not agree with that as I am not reading my photos I am viewing them. I do know one thing and that is when RULES are imposed we often lose track of what is really important with our images–visual appeal.
    PS- Birds face both right and left, I know, I have seen and observed many 🙂
