Amazing Trip …. I could end the review there but that would be an injustice to Charlie.
I found Charlie through an Instagram add in August 2022 after I tried to book with a different organization. While the other company is well know they do not allow non photographers to attend the photo trips.
This was a deal breaker for me as what’s the point of a trip of a lifetime and not being able to experience it with my wife.
I asked Charlie if she could come on the day trips and the response was “absolutely”.
Charlie then quickly answered all my questions and the trip was booked for May 2023.
Charlie has a great personality and a very calm demeanour and while I’m a fairly experienced photographer the other 2 participants were both novices. We all had a great time for the week we spent with Charlie with lots of learning and a lot of laughs.
The day trips were well organized and the guide, Randall, was awesome. Randell has been a professional guide there for 32 years and grew up in the area. He knows where to find the wildlife. Randell even set up his spotting scope everywhere for my wife to be able to see wildlife that was far away. Most of the animals we saw were within 20-30 feet which was incredible.
We have already told Charlie to let us know when he has the other trips he is working on organized as we will be the first to sign up.
If you want a relaxing photography workshop with free time to do other stuff as well contact Charlie. I would be surprised if your experience isn’t amazing.
