Colorado Fall color photo tours with Don Mammoser

Colorado Fall Color

October 4-9, 2022

The fall color in Colorado has to be experienced to be believed. Yellow aspen trees turn entire hillsides to gold. The deepest blue skies you can imagine compete for attention with jagged, snowcapped peaks. The colors, shapes and patterns are as awesome and as beautiful as nature gets. The mountains and natural areas we’ll visit are some of the most spectacular locations on Earth, and when you add in the amazing colors of autumn you won’t find a better place to be with a camera this fall.

Florida Birds

March 16-21, 2023

The birdlife in Florida is simply awesome. The birds are big, friendly and full of color. During the Spring breeding and nesting season, many spectacular species concentrate on nest building, attracting members of the opposite sex, and feeding their young and thus they ignore people. This allows us photographers to GET CLOSE – which is a great thing when it comes to photographing birds. We’ll point our cameras at a variety of herons, egrets, storks, ibis, terns and other wildlife as we tour the best bird places on Florida’s east coast. We’ll capture the AWESOME feeding frenzy of Osprey and various Terns diving for fish after fish.

Tuscany Italy

May 9-18, 2023

The light and the landscape of the Tuscany region in Italy simply has to be experienced to be believed. If ever there was a perfect place to be a photographer, Tuscany is it. Golden light streaks across the horizon, making the endless rows of grapevines, fruit trees, and fields of flowers glow with an incredible warmth. Ancient hilltowns, perfect Italian villas, tiny chapels and huge farmhouses are nestled below rolling hills, and blue skies are filled with puffy clouds. Colors, patterns, shapes and textures almost beg to be photographed. Each unique hilltown, rich in culture and full of friendly, welcoming locals will be calling out to us as we travel the area on this Tuscany, Italy photo tour.

Venice & The Dolomites Italy

September 21- October 1, 2023

The Dolomite Mountain Range of northern Italy is one of the most breathtaking photographic locations on the planet. Also known as the Italian Alps, the Dolomites are made up of seemingly endless craggy mountains and completely photogenic traditional villages nestled below. The entire area of the Dolomites is a UNESCO world heritage site that boasts hundreds of peaks and at least 20 which soar to almost 10,000 feet. Add in a plethora of easily accessed mountain lakes which reflect the impressive mountains and you have yourself the recipe for perfect scenic photography. Venice is a city like no other. Everything here floats, appears to float, or rides on water. Venice has no roads, no cars and no motorbikes. Everyone and everything gets around by boat. We’ll travel through both of these areas on this tour and we’ll photograph it all.

Ecuador Birds & Wildlife

Ecuador is one of only 17 MEGADIVERSE countries in the world. What that means is that Ecuador contains a huge number of species compared to most other places on earth.

We’ll concentrate on photographing birds of all types on this tour while staying at exclusive wilderness lodges where the wildlife action is non-stop. We’ll have access to, and learn how to use, multi-flash set-ups for hummingbirds – all equipment provided. Plus we’ll photograph tons of other species of birds and mammals as well as insects, flowers and anything else that we can find. We’ll spend time with professional nature guides who will lead us right to the birds and animals and we’ll sleep and eat all meals at wonderful eco-lodges the entire time.
