Galapagos Photography Guide and Tips
Just off the coast of Ecuador in the Pacific Ocean lies the alluring Galapagos – a series of 18 volcanic islands known the world over for their unique endemic species.
If that weren’t enough, the Galapagos Islands are also the talk of history books – this is where Charles Darwin formed the very basis of his Natural Selection theories. These pristine islands are a real treat for the inner nature and animal lovers among us – and of course, photographers.
Touring the islands is like spending the entire day and night on the other side of the bars in a zoo – a photographer’s dream come true. Don’t be disappointed, however, if you don’t run into the usual tigers, bears and lions – instead, there’s plenty to shoot – with all the stunning-looking species of birds, fish, insects, mammals and reptiles.
With a population of approximately 25,000 folks, 95% of the 5 populated islands are a national park.
