Photography enthusiasts are invited to join award-winning photographer Jonathan Green on a Galapagos Islands Photo Expedition aboard the M/V Eclipse.

The Photographer

jonathan greenBorn and raised in England, Jonathan travelled extensively through Europe after obtaining his B.S. in Geography & Geology. His travels then led him to the Galapagos Islands in 1988 where he trained as a naturalist with the Galapagos National Park and the Charles Darwin Research Station. His passion for photography always accompanied him, even underwater after he became a Galapagos Marine Reserve Dive Master. Since then, Jonathan has been published in Time Magazine and BBC Wildlife amongst others. He has also exhibited at the Natural History Museum and the Olympia Exhibition Center of London as well as other venues around the world.

The Workshop

Jonathan’s methodology is not only fun and very practical, but it is geared to any level of photographer, even if you are a beginner with a point - and - shoot camera!

Some of the topics that Jonathan will cover are: histograms, JPEG, TIFF, RAW, the Rule of Thirds, symmetry, centre, offsetting, camera programs, focal distances, portraits,landscapes, subjects in motion, filters, creative photography including the revolutionary HDR method.  You will learn amazing practical tips for Nature Photography such as: use of equipment, angles & composition, mood & location, close–ups & far away, exposure & lighting focus techniques, colors, subject behavior, weather & time of day, and much more.  lizardJonathan’s workshops take place in a hands-on environment during excursions along with additional, detailed follow-ups and interactive presentations on board. Additionally, since you will be in the world’s 2nd largest marine reserve, Jonathan will also provide a special workshop for underwater point and-shoot photography.
