Photo Wildlife Tours and Dave Collins


In December 2012, I organized my first photo tour for the Bournemouth Electric photography group from England, ¬†like-minded photographers to photograph Bears, Wolfs & Lynx amongst others in Bayerischer Wald National Park. Within a day of sending out an initial email to about 20 of my email contacts I had a sold-out trip, and from that, an idea was born. I suspected that there was a void in the English speaking German photo tour market and I began exploring it. Since that day I’ve worked hard at finding a variety of tours, that appeal to me and that I felt would appeal to a specific type of wildlife photographer — one who wants to go on a fantastic trip for a reasonable price with a good group of photographers.

My goal with Photo Wildlife Photography Tours is to do exactly that: provide a small, personally-run company that offers great trips to great locations for a good price. I have specifically sought out small tour operators that are familiar with working with wildlife photographers and that offer outstanding service and value on their trips.

On a personal note, I began photographing in 1977, and have been fortunate enough over the last 20 years to live in Germany and the last five years here in Bayerischer Wald.
