PATAGONIA'S MOUNTAIN LANDSCAPE

April 9-26, 2018 | MORE INFORMATION

For the mountain landscape photographer, Patagonia has to be one of the top 10 destinations on the planet. During this tour we will photograph two spectacular destinations-Torres del Paine and Los Glaciares National Parks in Chile and Argentina. The tour is timed for prime astral fall colors of southern beach trees with granite mountain peaks, massive glaciers and pristine lakes. Along the way we have the opportunity to photograph guanacos, foxes, birds and the rare occurrence of the illusive puma’s of the region.

ICELAND REVEALED

August 24-September, 2018 FOR MORE INFORMATION CONTACT JOSEPH VAN OS PHOTO SAFARIS

Iceland is considered the landscape photographer's paradise with countless waterfalls, rhyolite mountains, volcanic lava flows, blue crater lakes, thermal features and still active glacier-clad volcanoes. We visit many of Iceland's less traveled places by specially equipped 4X4 Mercedes Sprinter and SUV running the interior routes, highlands and other routes accessible only by these special 4X4 vehicles. Some of the highlights are the Fjallabak Nature Reserve including Landmanalaugar, Veidivötn region, Sprengisandur Highland Route, and majestic waterfalls such as Aldeyjafoss and Detifoss to name a few. I will be co-leading this fantastic journey with local professional photographer Daniel Bergmann. He has published many books on Iceland and his latest is Iceland Landscapes (2011), which is considered one of the finest collections of landscape images from Iceland.

YELLOWSTONE IN WINTER-MULTIPLE TOURS

January 17-24 and January 27-February 4, 2019 FOR MORE INFORMATION CONTACT JOSEPH VAN OS PHOTO SAFARIS

There is no better time to photograph Yellowstone than in the winter. The summer crowds are absent and the landscape is transformed into a wonderland. With frigid winter temperatures and 10,000 geothermal features the land is in a constant state of flux fire and ice. Steam from the numerous geysers crystalize onto solid surfaces and coat the landscape with magical diamond dust.

Our trip includes several days of private snowcoaches visiting many of Yellowstone's iconic geyser basins and we photograph at all the major areas including Upper, Middle and Lower Geyser Basins, Norris and the Mud Volcano areas as time permits. Wildlife are highly visible during this time of year and we generally see bison, elk, coyote, red fox, otters, trumpeter swans, bobcats and many of the other animals that make their home in Yellowstone in winter.

This year I have the pleasure of leading this trip with renowned landscape photographer Jack Dykinga. Jack needs little introductions and he will be a great addition to the trip.

With over 35 years of photographing Yellowstone National Park I hope I can show you some of my favorite places that have taken me a lifetime to learn!
