Join Celes Davar, an award-winning photographer to visit a few of his special places that other travelers do not know about (we travel by car, by hiking on trails, and by hiking off-trail on animal trails into locations where we have had luck viewing wildlife in the past).   This outdoor adventure is meant to provide you with the opportunity to practice with your camera in outdoor, wildlife, and nature settings with instruction from your guide.  You will take away a number of images of scenery, wildlife habitat and whatever wildlife we see during the outing.  There is nothing like being out first thing in the morning in the Riding Mountain highlands, regardless of which season it is.

All year (each season brings a special light and special photographic opportunities)
