Photography workshops and holidays to Ecuador are not to be missed. Whether it’s exploring the crown jewel of Ecuador, the Galapagos Islands, or hiking through the Andes mountains, Ecuador will not disappoint nature photographers.

Wildlife photography workshops in Ecuador are unforgettable. Ecuador is absolutely teeming with wildlife and is touted as one of the most species-rich places on Earth. There are many photography workshops and tours that will enable you to take photos of amazing endemic species such as the marine iguanas on the Galapagos Islands, or hummingbirds, monkeys, and sloths in the Amazon Rainforest.

January to May is the coolest and wettest time of year throughout the majority of Ecuador, with the Amazon being particularly soaked. This can potentially impede travel plans through the jungle as many roads can close due to flooding and mosquitos are out in full force; so pack plenty of environmentally-friendly insect repellant and long-sleeve shirts and trousers. However, this is an ideal time to see species like caiman, and when the seas are at their warmest and calmest around the Galapagos.

Ecuador is a fabulous country with plenty to explore in the world of wildlife and culture year-round. It certainly should be on top of any wildlife photographer’s bucket list.
