Ok, enough silliness. I have news.

I am positively tickled to announce our little BugShot family is expanding. Who have we added? None other than Piotr Naskrecki!

Piotr is a master conservation photographer, a katydid expert at Harvard’s Museum of Comparative Zoology, author of “Relics” and “The Smaller Majority”, and a founding member of the International League of Conservation Photographers. I’ve long been a fan of Piotr’s distinctive wide-angle macro style. And now, he is bringing it to BugShot’s newest tropical workshop. I couldn’t be happier!

BugShot/Belize will be held September 22-29 2013 at the remote-yet-comfortable Caves Branch Lodge in Belize. We will be spending a week with army ants, orchid bees, glasswing butterflies, cave crickets, and countless other arthropod treasures. The safari will be a mix of entomological and photographic instruction, and in the tradition of BugShot each of the instructors brings a different talent. John Abbott is a talented high-speed action photographer, Thomas Shahan is an intimate portraitist, Piotr Naskrecki is a master of capturing arthropods in their habitat, and I do… something with ants, I think.

Our last Belize workshop sold out within 2 weeks, so if you’d like to join us I recommend signing up sooner rather than later.

For a preview of our venue and event, here’s a slideshow:


For an in-depth look, I’ve uploaded more photos to the BugShot Belize Gallery.

I hope to see many of you there!
