Experimenting with light

Petra B.
Bear are Magnificent creatures

Ocena 5/5
This Photo Tour is the best way to take some professional photos of bears even thou you are not a professional photographer since it offers such a good conditions. Besides from animals we were able to take some photos in the cave as well. In my opinion this was the biggest challenge of the tour and also a place that allowed us to express our artistic freedom.

Diversity of nature

Klaus B.
Perfect way to test our photo skills

Ocena: 5/5
Joining the tour was the best decision that I have ever made! The tour is designed especially for wild life photographers who want to test their skills in different environments. It was quite a challenge to take a perfect photo of an Owl, to play with a light while taking photos in cave and especially trying to catch the power of mighty bears. The tour made us appreciate the diversity of wild life even more!
