In case you didn't hear about it, the Guy Harvey Outpost sponsored a photo safari to the Galapágos islands last May, led by Sports Illustrated photographer, Ron Modra. Apparently, the event went off like a click! Sorry about that one. A group of photographers and adventurers, as well as country music star Ronnie Dunn, of the prolific band Brooks and Dunn, followed Mondra to the amazing landscapes and seascapes off of Ecuador's coast. "I signed up for the Galapágos experience so excited to get the privilege to hang with some top-notch photographers," Dunn said. "Trust me, I wasn't let down. These guys are not just superstar lensmen; they are renowned adventurers. Charles Darwin opened the window to the Galapágos Archipelago and journeys like this, led by an elite Jedi photographer like Ron Modra who brings together the culmination of evolution, preservation and pure wonder to the lens of your camera. Magic!" Galápagos Photo Safari If you missed the last photo safari, don't fret. Modra will lead another group of photographers and adventurers October 29–November 5, 2017, on a six- island, land-based expedition through the Galapágos.
