Poland - details to be determined

O wydarzeniu

The trip with us will be different from what you have experienced so far. It won't be comfortable, it won't be warm or cozy. There will be fatigue, sweat and fighting with your own weaknesses. It will be an exciting adventure and experiencing nature in the best possible sense.

During the time you spend with us, you will have the opportunity to photograph with the methods we use, without compromises and without trodden paths. We will make our way through swamps and peat bogs, thickets and endless pools. There will be moisture, water and more water around. There will be a lonely night among hundreds of birds and an extraordinary feeling of fulfillment at sunrise.

There will also be what we love the most, i.e. active photography, approaching the riverbeds at night in floats. We will set off on a great rally through an endless pool to be close to an amazing spectacle at sunrise.

WHO WE ARE?

Lukasz Boch and Marcin Baranowski. We have been dealing with nature photography for a decade. This one dominated our lives, creating a different, better dimension in which we constantly reside. Enthusiasts, explorers and adventurers, lovers of wild creatures and plants. In the constant delight of the light of dawn, the taste of the wild river and the rustle of old trees.

WHY US?

Our everyday life is learning and constant search for the way to the goal. We never take shortcuts, and hard work and a deep conviction about the value of the road itself and its experience have become our philosophy. We experience nature and the beauty of the world emotionally in a deep, almost metaphysical way, while constantly trying to improve our skills. Discovery is the essence of beauty, and beauty is the highest value for us.

OUR EXPERIENCE

Throughout all these years of being in the bosom of nature, we have learned that the challenges we set ourselves lead to an inner sense of fulfillment and harmony. That is why we have chosen the most difficult and demanding roads. Water is our element and we spend time in it almost constantly, regardless of the season. We spent thousands of hours in the treetops, and even more camping in the wild, which gives us great satisfaction all the time. We have completed numerous photographic projects in every environment we have in Poland.

WHO PROVIDES US THE EQUIPMENT?

Mr Jan Gear

They launched in 2012. The beginning of a great road turned out to be a backpack for photographers, which was a great success on the market. This is how MrJan Gear was born. Currently one of the most recognized brands dealing in the production of equipment for nature photographers. Excellent backpacks, floats and many other articles attract more and more customers.

WHAT DO WE PHOTOGRAPH?

Everything that we can meet during autumn migrations. Our theme is cranes, but also geese and herons, but this is just the beginning of the variety you will see. Black storks, all kinds of plovers, seagulls, cormorants. The date you choose is very important. There are major changes in nature between August and November, so if you are interested in a specific species, please write to us.

ARE YOU INTERESTED IN A SPECIFIC GENRE?

If you dream of photographing a certain species, write to us, we will do everything to make your dream come true.

HOW IT'S WORKING?

Want to have adventure with us? Write to us what dates you are intrested in August-November, and we will offer you a suitable option. Or if you have already decided on a specific of our offer, send us a proposed date. We set the price depending on the numer days you spend with us. The longer you stay, the more experiences we will make. 

During your stay, you can decide what form of photography you prefer. Let's propose and show you the available methods, but it's up to you to decide. We take photos from the water using floating hides or from mobile hides. Taking photos from the water is more active and gives a lot of emotions, but then we can only take photos at sunrise, because at night we will be approaching the bird stands. In the second case, you need to spend the night with the birds. Although this requires more time commitment, it gives you two sessions instead of one. You photograph at sunset and then wake up among the birds and photograph at sunrise.

We will provide you with accommodation in a hotel of a nice standard, food including tree meals per day and full care od our team.

If you need help in getting to us from airport, please email us, we can collect you.
