Bosque del Apache!
Nature Photo Tours
The Morning Fly Out of Waterfowl is Usually a Spectacular Sight!

The Bosque del Apache is a special place that every nature photographer should visit at least once.

Located just south of Socorro, New Mexico, the Bosque del Apache is one of the jewels of the National Wildlife Refuge system. Comprised of over 50,000 acres, the Bosque del Apache is a wintering ground for 12,000 plus Sandhill cranes, and over 30,000 Snow geese and Ross geese. Additionally there are dozens of other bird species, including Bald eagles, turkeys, a variety of duck species, road runners and more. It’s also not usual to see mule deer, and coyotes during your visit.

Nature Photo Tours

We should have great opportunities for images of birds in their natural settings !

You’ll often have beautiful “fly outs” of geese in the morning framed against a dramatic sunrise, and also opportunities for the “fly ins” late in the day against gorgeous sunsets, with chances for birds silhouetted against beautiful reflected colors on the water as well.

The Bosque del Apache is also a Fantastic Place  for Waterfowl Portaits and to Practice Flight Shooting !


If the weather cooperates with some cold mornings, perhaps some opportunities with dramatic mist adding to the spectacular bird life. We’ll also take some time to explore some scenic opportunities , whether it’s isolating an interesting tree or the broader landscape surrounding the Bosque del Apache.

Due to the “target rich” environment at the Bosque del Apache, it’s one of the best places in the country to hone your photographic skills, and have repetition help embed those skills in your “muscle memory” as we like to call it. It’s a great place to practice flight shooting, exposure compensation, using fill flash, and to explore and more fully understand shutter speed and depth of field and more. We'll be working with you on all those things and more.

In addition to the fantastic shooting at the Bosque del Apache, we'll probably have a morning of photographing Wood ducks in Albuquerque.

Our guides have been shooting at the Bosque del Apache for many years. Come join us, visit this wonderful location and become a better photographer while enjoying one of the best National Wildlife Refuges in the country.
