The Wild Mission
At Wild Focus our mission is to create extraordinary travel moments that inspire the capturing of memories. Our tours are designed to provide an exciting, enriching, and eco-friendly travel experience for amateur to semi-professional photographers. Offering both group workshops and individual photography instruction; Wild Focus tours are highly rewarding as we take the time to ensure every guest returns home with wonderful photographs. We pride ourselves on being able to offer high-end photography tours in a friendly and enthusiastic manner. We look forward to helping you discover a deeper understanding of photography, and a greater appreciation of the natural world. At Wild Focus, we encourage you to take a moment. Look up in awe at an Antarctic iceberg, listen to your heart race in the presence of a Grizzly, and let yourself sigh over an African sunset. We strive to show you amazing wildlife and stunning landscapes, we aim to open your mind, and we hope to make you smile.
The Wild Advantage
Our tour groups are small, our accommodations range from luxurious to adventurous, our packages are all-inclusive, and our guests learn about nature, culture and photography in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. Wild Focus photography is all about appreciating nature, embracing the spirit of the wild, and looking through the lens with fresh eyes. Wild Focus is passionate about enhancing the travel experience. We know vacation time is precious, so we are dedicated to exploring the finest locations, discovering exotic cultures, and capturing engaging natural images. Unlike many other high-end photography tour companies, Wild Focus does not specialize in catering to highly competitive professional photographers seeking images for commercial sale. Our tours are designed for amateur to semi-professional photographers that are looking for an enjoyable and enriching travel experience. We encourage guests to really absorb every delicious moment of their adventure - delighting in the natural world, appreciating local cultures, learning new photography skills, and making the most of every unfortgettable photo opportunity.
The Wild Focus team would be thrilled take you on an amazing photography adventure.
So what are you waiting for? There is a big beautiful world out there to explore, discover and capture.
We’re out there exploring the Wild right now. Why aren’t you?

He began his career as a naturalist guide in Knight Inlet, a coastal fiord in British Columbia, which is home to a healthy population of Grizzly bears, Bald eagles and Orca (Killer Whales). Over twelve years at Knight Inlet Jamie developed a deep understanding of the natural instincts of wild animals and this has allowed him to capture truly unique and intimate wildlife images. For five years, Jamie also worked in Churchill, Manitoba as a polar bear guide and naturalist; and in the past four years, his winters have been spent as guide, naturalist and zodiac driver in Antarctica. Jamie is an ambassador for the conservation and protection of the natural world.
