Photographing the Galapagos: Capture Mesmerizing Wildlife Images in the Enchanted Isles
Few destinations match the Galapagos as a nexus for nature tourism, scientific discovery and raw natural beauty. And it’s no wonder: the Galapagos, one of the most unique archipelagos on Earth, has a rich history of exploration and naturalist discovery, inspired by the multitude of extraordinary species endemic to the islands. An intriguing array of life thrives here, and despite the island chain’s relatively young age, its inhabitants have become wildly differentiated from mainland South America due to isolation (600 miles off the coast of Ecuador) and the exceptional marine environment. Wildlife has evolved with no fear of predators, and thus no fear of humans. What this adds up to is some of the best wildlife photography opportunities on the planet. In addition to sensational landscapes and sunsets that are magazine-cover worthy, photographers have incredible proximity to a host of fascinating and wacky animals. Imagine capturing giant tortoises, marine iguanas and blue-footed boobies from mere feet away. It truly feels as if you are part of the ecosystem. Join Court Whelan for an in-depth look at photography in the Galapagos. You’ll come away with a naturalist’s insight into this wild paradise, as well as the best techniques to photograph all it has to offer.
