GLENN BARTLEY

Glenn Bartley is a professional nature photographer from Victoria, British Columbia on Canada's west coast.  He focuses on capturing intimate portraits of birds in their natural surroundings.

Glenn strives for what he calls “clean” images – where the subject is clear, distracting elements are kept to a minimum and the background is pleasingly blurred out of focus.

Glenn’s work has been published widely throughout North America in books and magazines (such as Birder’s World, Audubon Magazine, National Geographic, Canadian Wildlife, Photolife, Birding & Bird Watchers Digest).  His most recent books are entitled – “Birds in Ecuador: A Photographic Journey”, "Birds of British Colombia" and "Birds of Vancouver Island".

Glenn loves to share his passion for photography and for the natural world with those who attend his photographic workshops and through various online forums and resources.

WHAT MAKES BARTLEY'S TOURS DIFFERENT FROM THE COMPETITORS?

Small Group Size = Personal Attention
Glenn focuses on more personalized attention, instruction and guidance. Where many companies claim to have small groups – the reality is that they consider this to be 10, 12 or even 16 people! On Glenn Bartley’s workshops groups are kept to between 4-8 photographers to ensure that everyone gets the private instruction and shooting opportunities that they deserve. Because of the small group size Glenn is able to cater to individual photographic needs without compromising the trip for other photographers. Glenn’s primary goal is to ensure an educational and enjoyable photographic workshop for everyone in attendance!

It is All About Photography!
Unlike many of the other tour companies out there – Glenn Bartley’s photography workshops are all about nature photography. Of course we will have a great time too…but our primary focus each and every day will be creating the images that you have dreamt about. Every aspect of the workshops are planned to ensure the greatest opportunities possible for capturing the images you desire.

When it Comes to Photography…Experience Matters…
Glenn has more experience. He has been to the places that he will take you – not for a week or two – but for months!! Glenn knows where to get the best possible images and can show you how to achieve them. Often times Glenn will also work with local guides with years of experience in their home areas.

A Reputation for Quality Images
Glenn is regarded one of the world’s top professional bird photographers. Just go pick up a birding magazine and you will almost certainly find his images. National Geographic, Audubon, Birder’s World, Birding, Bird Watchers Digest and Photolife are just a few of the publications that Glenn works with on a regular basis.

Meeting Fellow Photo Travelers
One of the great things about joining a photography workshop is the opportunity to meet other like-minded individuals with whom you can share ideas and experiences about photography. The topics of nature photography, post processing, camera and computer equipment, photo marketing, the environment, wildlife and many more are sure to be discussed as we all share stories and opinions.

Environmental and Social Responsibility
Having completed his Msc. in Environmental Studies Glenn is very environmentally and socially aware. When we visit communities around the world we give something back to these places and the people who live there. 

Giving you THE BEST.
At the end of the day Glenn’s goal is simple – To give you the best possible photographic workshop imaginable.
