Human Nature adventures

Listen to the explosive spout of a humpback whale as it breaks the surface of a clear blue ocean. See the comical flight of a full-bellied puffin as it attempts to get airborne. Smell the salty landwash where the sea touches North America’s eastern-most land and where First Light really is first.

With camera in hand we will take you to the heart of the most easterly corner of North America, still largely undiscovered by the vast majority of travelers. This is a tour for photographers, their companions and the artistically-minded. Your particular needs and interests are addressed in a multi-dimensional tour that mixes group instruction, experiential learning and one-on-one coaching in the midst of cultural and ecological wonders. Presentations are interactive, inspiring and informative; the hikes are filled with vistas and natural beauty that invite hours of artistic contemplation; the traditional home-cooked meals and accommodations celebrate the best of Newfoundland hospitality. We will amble through charming historic communities like Brigus, Trinity and St. John’s; experience gannets, puffins and whales closer than most anywhere on earth, hike trails that take us along towering cliffs, through gentle meadows and explore Newfoundland’s famous rocky beaches.

Human Nature adventures

Your guides have deep roots here and will open doors to places and experiences undiscovered by the casual tourist. So pack your camera and join celebrated nature photographer, Dennis Minty, and his partner Antje Springmann, for “Newfoundland Close Up”, an unforgettable experience that will leave you inspired and more adept at capturing the natural world with your camera.

Sounds like fun, but that first photo reminds of that video where the whale jumps out of the water and lands on a kayaker. It’s on youtube.

I think it just sounds really amazing. I would love to see puffins fly. Growing up in the southern hemisphere, I think of them like Penguins and struggle to imagine them flying.

I wouldn’t say it’s a tour for the photographer. I would say it’s a tour for the nature enthusiast as well.

This would be absolutely amazing.

I love to see pictures of these little quaint towns with little white churches.

What a great opportunity this would be.
