It was an idea that we had in mind since the very beginnings of Photo Logistics, ten years ago! But until recently, it could not have been done for various reasons. During 2018 and 2019 we have carried out some short trips and trips abroad that have started us in this type of service. This means that, contrary to what many people said, a company from here can operate at the same level and offering the same services as our British or Central European referents. Why not booking your photo trips with an Spanish company if they give you a good service and price?
The general idea is offering the possibility to enjoy biodiversity elsewhere in the world in the same way that we do here. So, you have to focus only in taking your best photos and leave the logistics to us.
From 2018 autumn until this 2019 September we have made a trip to Finland to photograph bears, wolverines, birds and landscapes in the incredible golden autumn light in northern Europe. Also two breaks to Norfolk (United Kingdom) to enjoy the British winter with seals, waterfowl and spectacular daytime (and nighttime) owls and now we are about to head out to our first adventure in another continent: we travel the next week to the South Africa springtime, to the Zimanga reserve, where we expect to take photos from the hides designed by Bence Máté and safaris driven by experts. We will make a post about that.
As those trips were so well taken we have already scheduled and booked second and third editions by 2020:
• Norfolk. From January 31 to February 3.
• Saltee Island, from June 26 to 29.
• Zimanga. From the 13th to the 23rd of August.
• Finland in autumn. From September 10 to 15.
You have all the information in the links to our website.
The three trips last year were guided from the airport of Barcelona by Roger Sanmartí, co-founder and guide in PHOTO LOGISTICS.
In 2020 we have more projects, and we would like to show them up here so you can tell us your thoughts about them.
Photo break to Finland in winter to photograph Golden Eagle on the snow and Black Grouse. It is true that here in Spain you can photograph Golden Eagle with us in Murcia, Arribes de Duero and, in winter, Bonansa. But the hides we propose in Finland offer different settings and conditions: birds on the snow, very possibly action scenes involving different birds, the possibility of other species and that atmosphere in northern Europe that makes the experience unforgettable. Those people in charge of the hides have recommended that we get there in March, because in this way there is also the possibility of Black Grouse hide sessions. In this way we can diversify our target.
Photo trip to Poland in winter, with the goal of getting wild wolves photos. Last February Carles Santana visited a wolf hide in Poland with the idea of incorporating this trip into our offer. The snowfall the days before the sessions was impressive. So, the usual prey of the wolves could not easily escape the predators, which moved much more effectively on the snow and therefore, the carrion located in front of the hide was useless. The wolf sessions from hide are long and often fruitless. We cannot say any different, but when it works, the result is incredible. Having a wild wolf a few meters is an experience of those that every naturalist dreams of.
On the other hand, in recent years we have had contact with a Polish photographer who offers his services without using hides. In short walks or from the car offers stays for a few days in Białowieża, the last patch of untouched forest in Europe where you can photograph not only wolves, but other animals such as European bison, otters and beavers in a winter environment.
Therefore, we propose a trip for five people with a guide from Barcelona or at your arrival to the agreed airport in Poland, spending three and a half days in the surroundings of Białowieża with this local guide, taking photos from a vehicle or through short walks, for all types of public and physical condition. Finish the fourth day in the area of the wolf hides and spending three more days. The wolf hides require very long stays for what are perfectly sealed, they have heating, provided with toilet and with a lot of room. In addition to wolf meat attracts raptors such as Buzzard, Golden Eagle, etc. and Foxes. Also grain is supplied to attract Middle Spotted Woodpecke, Coal Tits, Jay, etc. The sessions are long, but fun. The total trip takes eight days. We cannot guarantee wolf photos, but it is an experience in the heart of some of the wildest areas in Europe. And you can also be sure that we work with local guides that will try hard to bring the best photo opportunities. Is it too much sincerity?
The dates are not closed, but February has been proposed because it is the moment when we assure (or almost) snow in Białowieża. We will be happy to receive your comments on the dates you have available.
Photo trip to Mongolia. We are preparing a spectacular trip in the mountains of Altaïr and the Gobi desert. It is the perfect trip for open spaces lovers. It will be by July 2020 and will focus on the mammals of these remote areas: Przewalski wild horse, Pallas’ Pika, Saiga, Pallas’ Cat, Corsac Fox, etc. Although we can also photograph birds such as Sacred Falcon, Pallas Sandgrouse, Kozlov Acentor, Père David Snowfinch, etc. We will also be able to attend cultural events like the traditional wrestling or spending some nights in a ger or tend that the nomadic steppe cultures use still now.
Further details of this trip will come soon.
Photo trip to Borneo. In September 2019 (almost now) we will move to the Malaysian part of Borneo island in a prospective trip. Pay close attention to the details on this from the beginning of October! Our idea is to take a river trip with overnight on board of a boat to trace the river where we can find Long-nosed Monkeys, the threatened Orangutan of Borneo and other species of mammals and birds.
The idea is to schedule it by September or October 2020 and last for 7 to 10 days. As in the previous cases we will be happy to know what is your availability and if you are interested in this photo trip to the heart of the Southeast Asian jungle.
