This is where nature really shows off – splurging on the most colourful macaws and exotic toucans, caimans, capybaras, otters, monkeys, tapirs, and of course, jaguars. There are some 700 species of bird adding streaks of colour and a melodious soundtrack to the ecosystem dense with mammals, reptiles, and fish. All this exists in a lush, tropical wonderland that we, as photographers, get to witness from the water or land, and take home visual tokens of a natural world that is otherwise indescribable.
We create custom safaris and lead photographic workshops in the most iconic regions of the Pantanal.

Our goal is not only to see the majestic jaguar or check the brightly painted macaw off the list, but to sit with them, watch their behaviour, wait for them to enter or emerge from the water and make that iconic shot.
With Lance as your personal photographic tutor and a private Pantanal guide to give us insight into the amazing creatures, a dedicated five-day photographic workshop is the best and most affordable way to experience the Pantanal’s diversity\n\n[/cs_content_seo][cs_element_gap _id=”26″ ][/cs_element_layout_column][/cs_element_layout_row][cs_element_layout_row _id=”27″ ][cs_element_layout_column _id=”28″ ][cs_element_layout_row_2 _id=”29″ ][cs_element_layout_column_2 _id=”30″ ][cs_element_image _id=”31″ ][/cs_element_layout_column_2][/cs_element_layout_row_2][/cs_element_layout_column][cs_element_layout_column _id=”32″ ][cs_element_layout_row_2 _id=”33″ ][cs_element_layout_column_2 _id=”34″ ][cs_element_gap _id=”35″ ][cs_element_headline _id=”36″ ][cs_content_seo]WILDLIFE OF BRAZIL\n\n[/cs_content_seo][cs_element_gap _id=”37″ ][cs_element_text _id=”38″ ][cs_content_seo]From $7,750 / per person sharing

Lance is a great photographic guide, I learned new photography technics and improve greatly on my photography knowledge. The local guides Panthera makes use of also made a huge difference to our success, as many of the other guides on the river speak no English. This type of planning made for a once in a lifetime trip
