Galapagos Photography Portfolio
Galápagos Islands is a volcanic reef in the Pacific Ocean. This island is considered to be one of the world’s foremost destinations for wildlife-viewing. Galapagos-a province of Ecuador, lies about 1,000km off its coast. Its isolated terrain shelters a diversity of plant and animal species, many found nowhere else.
I organized and led a Photo Workshop to Galapagos in August, 2014. Mike Hagen also participated in this workshop. In September 2017 i will be there on my 2nd Photo Workshop with Dean J. Tatooles.
The island is well known for its vast number of endemic species. With a population of slightly over 25,000, the principal language on the islands is Spanish.
Located in Ecuador, the people on this island are far from homogenous. The population is a mix of Mestizo (mixed Amerindian and white), Amerindian, Spanish and Blacks. 3%. There are more than 14 indigenous groups on the mainland each with their own identities and nuances. The Roman Catholic Church also plays a strong role on personal and social behaviour.
From the Fur Seal with baby, Sally Lightfoot Crab, Blue Footed Booby with baby, Fur Seal taking bath, to pictures of a Land Iguana; Tim Vollmer captured every scene during this wonderful photo workshop displaying the wonderful creatures on the Galapagos Island.
The Galapagos Photography Portfolio shows all the amazing sights, places and the rich and beautiful life of the creatures on the Galapagos island which we experienced during my photo tour and workshops.
