Photographic Workshops with Greg Downing

Greg DowningAfter a decade of traveling the world and teaching others through my own popular photography workshops I am excited to add the NatureScapes brand name to them. I know firsthand that photographic talent does not always equate to good people and teaching skills - that is where NatureScapes Certified Workshops will excel. My pledge to you is to live up to the NatureScapes reputation and to offer the same quality workshops I have been offering for a decade.

In an un-intimidating small group setting you can learn how to make artistically pleasing, and technically excellent, images of wildlife and our natural environment. Catering to photographers from beginner to advanced, group sizes are kept small allowing us to customize each workshop to the individual needs of the participants.

Workshop Testimonials

"Greg... you put a great trip together and what an amazing adventure for us! Thanks for making my dream come to reality!! Life is great, but I really miss Africa and everything about our adventure!"

- Bonnie Newman, Tanzania, Africa 2009

"Just back from Tanzania with Greg Downing. What an amazing trip and experience. The wildlife photography was incredible. The guides outstanding. Wonderful memories for a lifetime. Seeing the Discovery Channel or Animal Planet come to life in front of me was the most memorable. In particular, I enjoyed seeing the wildebeest migration and the cheetah hunting."

- Steven Grad, Tanzania, Africa 2009

"Thanks to the both of you (Greg and Alan) for putting on such a good workshop. I think that all the folks regardless of ability level got something out of the workshop. Also, thanks for being so flexible in getting people to the places that they wanted to shoot. Alan thanks for the setups, a cursory look at my photos shows that I have some ones that I will like very much. I know that Judy and I enjoyed ourselves - thanks for the fun workshop!"

- John Sturtevant - St. Paul Island, Alaska 2010
