Juan A. Pons

Wild Nature Tours is a small photography tour company specializing in small, focused and intense Nature Photography tours and workshops.

We believe that in order to truly enjoy your time and get the most out of a photography tour and/or workshop you need to have small groups, and a very high ratio of instructors to participants.

At Wild Nature Tours we keep our groups as small as possible, usually no more than 6 to 10 total participants and customarily two instructors.

What makes our workshops unique is the opportunity that very small groups provide to be flexible in catering to the needs and interests
of the individuals.

Our focus is you and making sure you make the best images you possibly can.
