Lowcountry Wildlife Photo Safaris


Explore the South Carolina lowcountry with Eric Horan, professional wildlife photographer. With international credits and 30 years shooting throughout the southeast, Eric offers information filled tours open to photographers of all skill levels. He invites you on a journey through the scenic water- ways and along pristine beaches of the barrier islands. A master naturalist, his tours are also enjoyed by non-photo- graphing partners. Each trip is designed with conservation at the forefront, not disturbing natural behavior of wildlife while viewing and photographing the best activity of the sea- son.

All tours are comprised of small groups with a maximum of six participants allowing Eric to match participants’ skill level to destination. Transportation is primarily by small boat through area waterways and around tidal activity and planned during the best light. Custom trips can be arranged for kayaks, hiking or driving tours. The coastal region offers an amazing range of wildlife viewing opportunities. See wading birds, sea birds, shore birds, birds of prey, dolphin and a variety of other mammals while working the beaches, backwaters, maritime forest and salt marshes. Learn from a pro how to plan, how to dress, what equipment to bring, where and when to go. Photo and camera gear tips are shared en route, along with techniques for approaching wildlife.

Trips are tailored for the season’s best wildlife adven- tures. Winter (Dec-Feb) includes photographing eagles, the shorebird population and a wide array of visiting waterfowl. This is done from inside a photo blind and working on the beaches. Springtime (Mar-May) includes Osprey feeding, wading bird rookeries and spring migrations. Summer (Jun- Aug) includes shorebirds with summer plumage, dolphin, seabirds and shrimp boat activity. Fall (Sep-Nov) will focus on dolphin, deer, fall migrations and color transitions in the lowcountry marsh. Separate fees may apply for rental equip- ment or park passes as needed.
