Falkland Islands Photo Tour

Join Denise Ippolito for a two week adventure at one of the most natural, photo-rich environments on earth. During this photo workshop we will visit several of the Falkland Islands via small aircraft.  “The Neck”, known as the crown jewel of the Falklands, will be one of our featured locations. On my last visit to the Neck, I photographed hatching King Penguins and spent hours photographing the Black-browed Albatross colony.  In addition to The Neck, we will visit Sea Lion; Sea Lion Island is the only location in the Falklands where killer whale pods routinely patrol.  In addition to these whale pods it is the best place to see and photograph Elephant Seal and Sea Lions. Next on our top locations will be Bleaker Island, notably, the best place in the Falklands to capture Gentoo penguins shooting out of the surf.  Also, at Bleaker we will spend time at one of the largest Imperial Cormorant (aka Blue-eyed Shag) colonies with over 8,000 nesting pair.

We will spend some time in Stanley to afford us two day trips to Volunteer Point. If we have time, a possible visit to the rookery where I created my Nature’s Best category winner in 2016 (Northern Rockhopper Penguin).  Some tour leaders boast loads of different islands but that just means you spend time packing-unpacking, waiting for flights and traveling, I have minimized this in an effort to maximize our photo time in-the-field at the very best locations that the Falklands has to offer.
