Black bears and divers, Minnesota

Friday 15 June 2018

In association with Nature’s Images, led by Stan Tekiela and Chris Gomersall.

A ten-day tour to the northern USA, and the enchanting boreal forest and lakes of Minnesota. Here we shall concentrate on two main subjects; the black bear and common loon (or great northern diver). We are fortunate to have privileged access to a site where black bears have become well habituated, allowing close-up photography of mothers and cubs in particular, but also passing adult males. On the lakes, we shall be using boats to give us intimate water level shots of common loons in their fantastic summer plumage, together with their chicks.

Group size: 6 persons max

Cost per person: £3195.  Includes accommodation, all meals & local transfers. Excludes international flights.

I thought you did a great job of guiding us and providing us with wonderful opportunities.


Thanks so much for your very kind, relaxed, and very knowledgable tuition.


. . . thanks from me for another great week, and for prodding me in the right direction as always.


Many thanks to Chris Gomersall for all his help and invaluable tips on the day to enhance the experience.


Thanks for all the help and encouragement given to me during the recent trip. You are a wonderful tutor.


The balance between supporting and guiding us and leaving us to get on with things at the shoots was spot on.


I particularly wanted to say thanks for your inspiration and ‘push’ that has renewed my impetus to try harder with the photography!
