When Alfred Lord Tennyson famously wrote, “Drink Life to the Lees” we at Tropical Photo Tours took his words seriously. As a fraternity of like-minded and passionate bird and wildlife photographers we go that extra mile in quest of the rare birds and animals that live in the Latin American countries which to the rest of the world are still unseen and thus considered “exotic”. We are very fortunate to experience the pristine beauty of the verdant rainforests and the ever-changing landscape of the cloud forests where the mist hangs low. These beautiful locales and its feathery inhabitants turn us into poets and storytellers, we live and capture these stories through our lenses. We bring these lived experiences or “story in pixels” for you to enjoy and motivate you to take a journey of a lifetime with us. There is always a “We” in our travel stories and not “Us” as your travel experiences matter to us the most. It is our endeavor to encourage new bird photographers and serious hobbyists to join our ever-growing fraternity of avian enthusiasts and photographers.
There have been veteran bird and wildlife photographers who have traveled with us in the past and they keep coming back for more as the megadiversity of the Latin American countries can’t be covered in one lifetime. They choose us because we make photo trips special where everyone counts. The detailed trip reports will give you an insight into our deep yet silent conversations with Mother Nature and its unbelievably beautiful creations which we are fortunate to witness and “freeze” them with our lenses. The blogs will not only guide you to become a better photographer but also transport you to the heart of the tropical rainforests of Costa Rica and Brazil and the Ecuadorian Amazons even for a while. Who knows one day soon you can join us too to a trip into the extraordinary world of birds and beasts and see the breath-taking sunsets in the jungle for yourself? Till then enjoy reading!
