We invite you to join us between the dates of 1st - 6th March 2022, & spend time within the forested wilderness of Sweden, photographing the indigenous golden eagles as they thrive in this wintery wonderland. Conny & Robin, members of the NaturesLens guiding team, will provide assistance & guidance on an as-needed basis, assisting you in obtaining the best possible images. Photographing these impressive birds within stunning forested & mountainous landscapes, you will have opportunities to capture motion shots of the birds in flight, soaring above as they track prey, feeding, & resting within their protected habitats.
Alongside golden eagles live a wide variety of additional bird species; such as the northern bullfinch, jays & the grey-headed woodpecker, which you will also have the opportunity to capture on camera. The heavy snowfall we expect in this region during the time of our visit only makes the scenery more dramatic, providing an incredible backdrop for wildlife photography.
From the comfortable hides you will have the chance to use both wide-angle & close-up lenses, as the hides are placed in locations from which it is favourable to capture the eagles both at ground level & in the sky.
You will spend full days in the brand-new hides, making the most of the changing light conditions throughout the day to take the most spectacular photographs. The hides offer heating & comfortable interiors, therefore protecting you from the icy conditions outside while ensuring that your photography experience is both lucrative & enjoyable.

2022 – Raptors & Eagles of Extremadura Photography Holiday

An Imperial Eagle   Photographed At The Location Used For The NaturesLens Bonellis, Golden & Imperial Eagles Of Spain Photography Holiday
Join David on a new & inspiring photography tour suited to wildlife enthusiasts, photographing several of the species of eagles of Extremadura in Spain – specifically the Imperial Eagle, the Bonelli’s Eagle & the Booted Eagle. As with many of our photography holidays, we have planned this Eagles of Extremadura photography holiday for enthusiastic photographers who would like to focus on specific species but to have access to photograph some of the other birdlife found in Extremadura.
Our photography holiday has been timed to offer the best opportunities for being able to photograph these three magnificent eagles, plus a magnificent location which has a healthy population of Common Kestrel.
Join NaturesLens to capture images of the fabulous Eagles of Extremadura, in Spain, during the Raptors & Eagles of Extremadura photography holiday. This photography holiday is of 5 night/6 day duration on a Full Board, Non-Shared basis & costs £1699 per participant.
For the duration of this trip, you are based in Herreruela, a small town located near Cáceres; this town is the capital of Cáceres province, in the autonomous community of Extremadura, it is here that you will spend 5 night on a full-board basis.
The days will consist of early starts & late evenings to take advantage of the best light, & also so as not to scare the birds in any way. Three of the photography sessions are dedicated to photography of the Eagles from hides hidden in the landscape.
The first, the Booted Eagle is the smallest of the species of Eagle found in Spain, with a length of 42-53 cm & a wingspan of 110-135 cm.
The next eagle up in size is the Bonelli’s Eagle, which you will also have the opportunity to photograph from a brilliant hide set-up that has an expanse of Spanish plain behind it, no need to fill the frame with the bird for these images – although you will want to do that too – but do show off the landscape in which these birds live.
The third of the eagle species is the Spanish Imperial Eagle, this large eagle has a pale cream head & neck, but dark brown feathers elsewhere. There is a distinctive white area on the shoulders & a pale grey area on the upper tail, & the species can be recognised by its particularly smooth gliding flight. Unlike the Booted & Bonelli’s Eagles, the Spanish imperial eagle is classified as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List.
The target species for this photography tour are the trio of the Eagles of Extremadura, the Imperial Eagle, the Bonelli’s Eagle & the Booted Eagle, but you will have opportunities to capture images of the local Common Kestrels & also the nesting Bee-Eater.
Working from dawn ’til dusk, with David, achieving images of this wonderful range of species in action, this is an experience you won’t want to miss!
Photographable Species: bee-eater, bonellis eagle, booted eagle, common kestrel, imperial eagle

2023 – Ice Grizzlies of the Yukon Photography Holiday

A Grizzly Bear Walking Through The Snow   Captured During The Natureslens Ice Grizzlies Of The Yukon Photography Holiday
Join David & Pui Hang on a wild Canadian experience, travelling into the depths of Yukon wilderness, to Bear Cave Mountain, in October 2023 to capture individual images of the native grizzly bear, also known as the Ice Grizzlies, as they feed on spawning salmon in the Fishing Branch River. The particular conditions & sub-zero temperatures in & around this river transforms the Grizzlies into ice bears, as their fur becomes frozen & frosted; effectively changing their appearance as photography subjects.
Only a fortunate few can witness this spectacle annually, & the unique nature of this wildlife photography experience means that we can only offer at most three places on this trip, so early booking is essential.
Join NaturesLens to capture images of native grizzly bear on the banks of the Fishing Branch river, in Canada, during the Ice Grizzlies of the Yukon photography holiday. This photography holiday is of 7 night/8 day duration on a Full Board with Drinks Included, Shared basis & costs £9999 per participant.
NaturesLens invites wildlife photography enthusiasts on a trip to Bear Cave Mountain, deep in the Yukon region, Canada’s wildest & most unspoilt territory, to capture remarkable images of the Ice Grizzlies as they feed on spawning salmon. This natural wonder only occurs for six weeks of the year so the lucky few who get to observe this event will take home memories to treasure for years to come.
The area for this wildlife photography holiday lies within a snowball’s throw of the Arctic Circle in the Fishing Branch Protected Area, where the Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation & the regional government have joined hands to set aside 2,500 sq. miles of pristine wilderness as Yukon’s largest regional park.
In this area of the Yukon the grizzly bears stay active for as long as the food remains viable – and late salmon runs mean food until mid-November.
The chum salmon draw the grizzly bears to the Bear Cave Mountain area. To prepare for denning, these magnificent giants of the forest take advantage of the abundant food supply as they enter Stage 4 of the process known as hyperphagia, which simply means they eat and drink excessively in preparation for denning. Every fall, in the shadow of craggy mountains, as many as 40 grizzly bears amble along the river’s banks, foraging their limit of chum salmon, which have journeyed two thousand kilometres from the Bering Sea to spawn and die. It is a sight to behold as the grizzly excels at fishing.
By mid-October, winter settles in at Bear Cave Mountain and, along with the winter elements, the Grizzlies are transformed into “Ice Bears”.
During November the frosty, satiated bears then head up Bear Cave Mountain to den in its numerous caves and crevices. A protective layer of fat enables the bears to rest in their dens for the winter, but as they do not truly hibernate, they can easily be awakened.
The period to witness this phenomenon is short, just six weeks long, in which the Grizzlies gather to feast on the spawning salmon. Their feeding behaviour is intense during this period as they are attempting to put on enough weight to last them through their hibernation in nearby limestone caverns over the winter months & the Fishing Branch River is the key to it all.
Fed by underground springs, Fishing Branch River remains unfrozen throughout the year, & every autumn 35,000 chum salmon make the 1,500-mile odyssey from the Bering Sea to spawn in its pure waters. At times there are so many fish in the river you feel you could walk across it on their backs without getting your feet wet.
The salmon, in turn, attract the Grizzlies, as many as 40 every season & as they wade through the river an extraordinary transformation takes place.
Within minutes their wet fur freezes in the sub-zero temperatures & they become Ice Grizzlies to the delight of wildlife photographers.
Being allowed into the park is a limited right, as the region is very sacred to the indigenous Vuntut Gwitchin communities who reside in the area, & put great ancestral & cultural value on the land & the environment within the park. The 2500sq miles which make up the park was set aside by the government & local communities as an area for preservation, & the opportunity to capture its rarely disturbed wildlife population on camera is not one to miss out on.
A guide with in-depth knowledge of the wildlife & culture of the Yukon national park, & in particular the Ice Grizzlies, will lead us throughout the experience; both he & David & Pui Hang will assist you in obtaining editorial-quality images that genuinely communicate the magic of this remarkable wildlife spectacle.
Our trip includes a two hour chartered helicopter journey from Dawson City to Fishing Branch River, which takes us across a far-reaching emptiness of deep-frozen rivers & boreal forests bounded by range upon range of white mountains punching to the sky. You will also enjoy seven nights full-board accommodation in a charming log cabin situated moments from the bank of the river; involving you deeply in the action yet providing a cosy retreat from the harsh conditions outside.
All internal transfers, accommodation & meals at the camp are all included to make things as straightforward & enjoyable for you as possible.
As well as cabin accommodation, all internal transfers are taken care of for you, to ensure that the whole experience is gratifying & you can focus on capturing striking images of the fauna of Fishing Branch River to add to your wildlife portfolio.
Photographable Species: bald eagle, elk, grizzly bear, moose

2022 – Winter Wildlife of Hokkaido & Japan Photography Holiday

2017 02 20_10 04 20
NaturesLens invites you to spend this 14 night/15 day nature photography tour travelling throughout the wonderfully diverse landscapes of Japan, specifically Central Honshu & Northern Hokkaido, getting up close to a wide range of native species which thrive in harsh winter conditions. Our Japanese Winter Wildlife photography trip, which we have been leading for the last 8 years, covers a variety of areas, providing you with unique opportunities to undertake wildlife photography of the highest quality.
Guided by David & Ian, you will visit Central Honshu & Northern Hokkaido & gain an insight into the variety of landscapes & wildlife which exists throughout the country, made even more photogenic by dramatic winter conditions. The photographic opportunities on our Japanese Winter Wildlife photography tour are always without parallel – with opportunities to photograph the red-crowned cranes, Steller’s sea eagles, white-tailed sea eagle, whooper swans, & of course, the Snow Monkeys, during this photography holiday.
Join NaturesLens to capture images of varied winter wildlife including the red-crowned cranes, Steller’s sea eagles, white-tailed sea eagle, whooper swans, & of course, the Snow Monkeys, in Japan, during the Winter Wildlife of Hokkaido & Japan photography holiday. This photography holiday is of 14 night/15 day duration on a Half Board, Non-Shared basis & costs £6249 per participant.
Join David & Ian to travel deep into stunning snow-covered landscapes, capturing beautiful images of wildlife which thrives during harsher seasons in Japan. Throughout this nature photography trip, our group will travel throughout several different regions, including the mountainous area around Yudanaka in central Japan, & north of the mainland to the island of Hokkaido, giving you an insight into the variety of landscapes & wildlife which exists throughout the country, made even more photogenic by dramatic winter conditions.
Our wildlife photography adventure offers enthusiastic wildlife photographers the opportunity to rise early for two dawn visits to the famous red-crowned crane roosting sites of the Tsurui region of Hokkaido; spend two days at the Akan red-crowned crane feeding centre; & spend two days observing the beautiful whooper swans which inhabit Lake Kussharo, a frozen caldera lake in the eastern region of Hokkaido.
Not only this, but our wildlife photography trip is unique in offering six boat trips on the drift ice of the Nemuro Strait to photograph Hokkaido’s fabulous Steller’s sea & white-tailed eagle populations as they fly, feed, dive for fish & fight over scraps. These excursions will give you unique access to the native wildlife at each location, providing ample opportunity to obtain incredible images.
Our photography holiday begins in Tokyo; from there we immediately transfer to Hokkaido, the most northerly island of Japan, which holds the most remote & only true wilderness in Japan. North of the island, the Shiretoko Peninsula is recognised for its world heritage site status, as the landscapes of dramatic coastline & soaring mountains are stunning, giving you the perfect backdrop to achieve editorial quality images of the wildlife inhabitants. As we travel across the island, you will have the opportunity to photograph a vast selection of Japanese Winter Wildlife, including red-crowned cranes, black-eared kites, whooper swans as well as white-tailed & Steller’s sea eagles as we cruise through drift ice environments which surround the island & across additional feeding sites on the Nemuro Peninsula to the east of the island.
We will then move onward to Yudanaka & spend two days at the Jigokudani snow monkey site with the Japanese Macaque, also known as the Snow Monkey, in the mountains, at their thermal spa, as they bathe & feed in the area. We give you the second day here so that you have the chance to fine-tune your photography having become more familiar with the environment & the behaviour of this species. After spending the morning with the snow monkeys of Jigokudani Yaen Koen, we will travel to Yamanakako. Our final location is on the shores of  Lake Yamanaka; the view of Mt. Fuji from the lake is breathtaking & has a distinctive shape – making for an iconic image to complete your Japanese Winter Wildlife photography holiday.
Japan is an extraordinary country, & our Japanese Winter Wildlife photography experience provides wildlife photographers with unrivaled opportunities to capture uniquely beautiful photographs.
In order to present the best photographic opportunities the majority of locations that we make use of throughout this photography holiday are rural or remote in nature, as such food is often based on seafood & is traditional Japanese in style – westernised menus are frequently not available – if you wish to discuss this further prior to booking please contact us.
Group size is limited to between 3 & 7 participants, this is due to the nature of the photography excursions & the type of hotel that we prefer to make use of, so booking early is essential.

2024 – Bald Eagles of Alaska Photography Holiday

Example of the type of image that you may have opportunities to capture during the NaturesLens Bald Eagles of Alaska Photography Holiday

Southern Alaska boasts some of the most beautiful & dramatic scenery to be found in all of North America; home to diverse wildlife species, both predator & prey, who thrive in its harsh climates & varied habitats. NaturesLens invites mid-level & experienced wildlife photographers to join Ian & David for photography challenge which involves navigating the waterside territory surrounding Haines, southern Alaska, to track & photograph the impressive bald eagle as it soars & settles within its beautiful natural habitat.

The locations that will be made use of during the trip have been chosen carefully by Ian & David to give you the best possible eagle photography experience, as the Chilkat Valley is home to more than 3000 eagles as they feed on the abundant supply of spawning chum salmon. Over the course of this tour, you will have the opportunity to photograph eagles in flight & “in the environment”, giving you the chance to capture both wide-angle images & up-close shots. Group size is limited, book your place today!

Join NaturesLens to capture images of spectacle of the Bald Eagles at their Council Grounds, in United States, during the Bald Eagles of Alaska photography holiday. This photography holiday is of 7 night/8 day duration on a Half Board, Non-Shared basis & costs £3999 per participant.

Join NaturesLens on an exciting photography experience, based in the heart of Alaska’s mountainous south, capturing stunning images of the bald eagle to add to your portfolio. The eagle is the national bird of the USA for a reason; they are strong, majestic & impressive. The ultimate predator of the sky, making them the perfect subject for adventurous wildlife photographers. Paired with dramatic snow-covered landscapes, there is no other setting & subject pairing for photography quite like this.

Throughout the trip, you will have abundant opportunities to capture images of bald eagles perched in the trees, diving & fighting for fish, or soaring overhead as they scour the ground below for their next meal. Ian & David will lead you to the optimum positions from which to capture both close up shots, highlighting their beady eyes & dramatic features, & wide-angle shots which take in eagles alongside other bird species within the outstanding landscape which surrounds them.

The Alaska Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve was created by the State of Alaska in June of 1982. The preserve was established to protect & perpetuate the world’s largest concentration of Bald Eagles & their critical habitat. It also sustains & protects the natural salmon runs & allows for traditional uses; provided such uses do not adversely affect preserve resources. The boundaries were designated to include only areas important to eagle habitation. Virtually every portion of the preserve is used by eagles at some time during the year.

The schedule for this trip has been designed to allow you to make the most of the photography opportunities available in the area. This includes six days of photography sessions specifically targeting bald eagles in the Chilkat Valley, with guidance available to help you tailor your technique to obtain the best images within a challenging environment. The eagles flock to this valley because an upwelling of warm water prevents the Chilkat, Klehini & Tsirku rivers from freezing, which encourages a salmon run this late in the year. The sight of hundreds of birds perched in trees which line the river waiting for their chance to catch fish is remarkable.

There may be opportunities for some Astro or Aurora photography, however, these are dependent on clear conditions & aurora activity, but there is the chance that you will be lucky enough to witness this true natural wonder unique to remote areas of the northern hemisphere. Group size is strictly limited so book now to avoid disappointment.
