Welcome to the start of an Amazing Adventure

Unfortunately, not only has my familiy's health been adversely affected in the prior year, I myself have been recently diagnosed with a serious health condition. One that makes a person think that time is a precious commodity, and that I'm going to maximize it to the hilt. 


To that end, I'm ending my workshops and classes.  I will be organizing some trips to places like Africa and others places I want to see.  Sharing with just a couple close friends does make a trip nicer and less expensive, and so I will be sending out occasional emails to existing cliental offering trips "at COST"  I will not be providing any instruction (except in a friendly conversation)  and I will not be adding any fees to do such.  This will be an amazing cost saving for these trips.  As an example I developed a 10 day trip to Tanzania, Safari all room and board, private photography guide and jeep (4 max passengers) for $4500

My possible future destinations include Kenya (migration), Tanzania, Alaskan bears,  Young Polar Bears in Canada,  Pantanal Jaguars, Smokey Mountain black bears, Ospreys in Florida, the Norwegian Arctic and others.

If you have been one of my clients be on the look out for these emails if you are interested in any of these destinations.
