What theCustomers are Saying about Stan's Tours
'How does he do that?'

"If you've followed the photography of Stan Tekiela, you've probably asked yourself that. I decided to find out and signed up for one of his 'tours.' It was an opportunity to spend time shooting with the guy I consider to be the finest wildlife photographer working today. Whatever your photo skills, Stan tailors the outing to your goals in a low-pressure, flexible learning environment. He quickly scoped out my skill level and adjusted his dialogue with me accordingly. In addition to sharpening your photography chops, you'll learn that Stan is also a world class naturalist, with an encyclopedic knowledge of North American fauna. It's quite a package, quite an experience and I highly recommend it."

When you meet someone who can show you a new and very different view of the world’s extraordinary natural beauty, you know you are going to have an amazing experience. Stan Tekiela’s photo nature tours are just that. First, without Stan’s extensive knowledge of nature and animal behavior, I wouldn't have been able to able to capture such amazing images. He prepared us ahead of time when something was about to happen. We were taught so much about wildlife behavior and therefore, at the critical moment, we captured such beautiful and exciting shots. I left for home knowing that I really exceeded my photography goals. I am so grateful to Stan who taught me how one needs to learn more than just the technical skills of photography in order to capture the beauty of nature in photos. I can’t wait for the next workshop!


Stan’s tours are special opportunities.The wildlife views are astonishing. Stan's guidance helps you both see and photograph birds in new and vivid ways. But they are also wonderful times on Minnesota water. He could have called the tours "workshops" or "master classes" but I’m glad he didn’t. The comfort of his boat, his hospitality and my friendly companions made it easier to attend to the birds and open my mind. I got better pictures than I expected, a big bump in my skills each time plus great memories.
