"Costa Rica is a magical place, especially for
hummingbirds. Ray Barlow took us on a photography
workshop that showcased many of these
beautiful hummingbirds, as well as other natural
wonders that make up a tropical paradise. Ray
was quick to share his knowledge in photographing
many different species of birds that we encountered.
He also gave us an intimate look at the life and
people of Costa Rica. We had a great time!"
Good morning folks. Boy I am so out of shape and sore
but yesterdays adventure Quebec to search for
Great Grey owl was so worth it.
I had a pleasure shooting with Raymond Barlow and Bruce
Kennedy. What a reward it was to be able to watch and
photograph a Great Grey hunt for voles and mice. I was also
very impressed with the ethics in the park.... no baiting
or calling is allowed and photographers have to stay
on the beaten path.
All natural. Mother nature at her finest. What a majestic
and very patient bird it is. I am amazed at how long it
can sit in one perch just looking and listening for prey.
It was a long drive but Raymond filled my head with so
much of his knowledge, tips, tricks and his work ethic. A
worthwhile trip for sure. I'll be posting a few over the
next few days. Have a great day today folks

I have been out with Ray on five different occasions
shooting images of raptors. Ray provides excellent
assistance and instruction in all aspects of creating
wonderful images – camera settings, composition,
light, as well as post-production processing to maximize
image quality. Ray has an easy and calm approach
to his mentor-ship, and demonstrates excellent ethics
in his interactions with wildlife.
I have been with Ray while standing for hours in snowy,
cold conditions waiting for owls to move from a more
distant perch to a better vantage for photography – never
interfering with the owls’ natural behaviour. Some of my
best wildlife images have been taken while on one
my photo tours with Ray.
The best rating that I can give to Ray is that I know I
will be out with him again shooting wildlife, either close
to home or at more distant locations.
I went on Ray's 2010 photo tour to Newfoundland. The
scenery was beautiful and the wildlife photography
was unforgettable. The highlights were photographing
the Orcas that had killed a Minke whale in Witless Bay
and the amazing Gannet colony at Cape St. Mary's
Ecological Seabird Reserve.
Based on my extremely positive experience during the
Newfoundland photo tour, I went on Ray's 2011 trip to
Tanzania for yet another amazing photographic adventure
Hopefully I will be able to join him again on one of his
tours to the spectacular places he visits.
Additional photos taken on these two trips are
posted on my website.
