I was AMAZED, as promised!

Jeff kept his promise: I was amazed! Amazed at the beautiful animals, amazed at the beautiful settings, and most importantly, amazed at the shots I took home with me.

I was amazed!

I have had numerous workshops with Jeff and have enjoyed and learned on all of them. In Brazil, I was amazed at the breadth of animal life. Jeff is very knowledgeable about the birds and wildlife and that really helped me create some great photos.
I would recommend taking any of his workshops.

I had an excellent experience in Canada with you last time and am looking forward to the next two I have joined!

One of the best photography trips I have taken


Jeff’s Mongolia Golden Eagle Festival and Gobi Desert extension was one of the best photography trips I have taken. The photo opportunities were numerous. Jeff’s itinerary enabled me to improve my skills of photographing sand dunes, desert landscapes, portraits of locals dressed in traditional costume, birds in flight, running horses, and sunrises and sunsets. Jeff was available to assist group participants with camera settings and best angles to capture amazing photos. This is a photography tour not to be missed.

Beyond Amazing

Jeff makes the experience interesting, exciting and educational. In addition to sharing his knowledge and in depth experience as a photographer, he also shares his knowledge of the locale, the wildlife and fun facts about the encounter. Not only that, if you need assistance during or after the trip, he’s always there for you..

Traveling and photographing with Jeff is not only rewarding, it’s also fun. Jeff ensures that every detail is handled and manages to keep you entertained throughout the trip. If you haven’t gone on a “funshop” with Jeff, you are missing out on a great experience.

All in all a fantastic trip.

I must say this trip was amazing on all fronts. I truly enjoyed photographing with you, and I also very much appreciate all of your time and the one-on-one education you gave me on Lightroom. Sharing your workflow process with me and straightening out my library added frosting to the cake, so to speak. Best of all I enjoyed our social outings. All in all a fantastic trip.

Outstanding Photographs

I tend to view the success of a wildlife photography trip by the numbers of “big winners” I get. This workshop was one of the best. Jeff’s sessions are well prepared and his experience really pays off in his ability to work with the photographers on settings, lighting and other factors that contribute to great photos. For the less experienced wildlife photographers, Jeff is a great teacher.

I had a great time and made a bunch of great photos. Jeff and Kevin are very knowledgeable and helpful with questions and equipment. They put us in all of the right situations to get the shot. I am looking forward to my next workshop with them, you should give them a try, they’re great!

Jeff is the Best Workshop Leader

803 8601

I’ve done a lot of Wildlife Workshops and Jeff is the best workshop leader I’ve worked with. I’ve done three workshops with him and plan to do more. I’m an experienced wildlife photographer and also learn something valuable when I’m with Jeff. I tend to rank workshops on the number of big winners I get. From one of Jeff’s workshops I got a photo that won best wildlife photo of the year in the 16 camera clubs of Northern California annual competition. Jeff works extremely well with inexperienced as well as experienced photographers.

Very Helpful!

I really enjoyed your honest critiques of my photography they were very helpful. Thank you!

One of the best photography trips I ever did!

Jeff was the Great Leader in one of the best photography trips I ever did … he made the impossible come true by organising a 3 day Harpy photography session in the middle of the amazon forest and in the best of circumstances.

After that we visited the Pantanal. Main target animal to photograph was the Jaguar, and we had 13 sightings in 4,5 days !! Next to that there were countless other bird species to see up close and photograph, and he really went out of his way to make photograph kingfishers in action possible. He gave great advice in both the making of the photos as also in the afterwork in Photoshop afterwards.

I will most certainly participate in other workshops he organises.

Thanks Jeff for the greatest of nature experiences!

Impressive wildlife photography expertise

leopard kenya safari

I first met Jeff Wendorff on one of his wildlife workshops and was most impressed with his expertise and experience with wildlife photography. When I learned he does a yearly Africa Photo Safari, I signed up immediately. I was not disappointed. Jeff hand-picked the 3 Porini Camps for our Kenya trip, selects his jeep guides and is the perfect host. The guides find where the wildlife are, put you in a perfect position for action shots considering lighting conditions and with only 3 per jeep, you have plenty of room to move around and stow gear. The lodging, food, and camp staff are outstanding at each camp site. Great stuff. I’m going back this year with Jeff to do it all over again. From lumbering elephant herds towering beneath Mt. Kilimanjaro, to black-mained lions, to leopard with cubs, to cheetahs on the hunt to rare spotted dogs to fantastic Africa sunset silhouette shots, it doesn’t get any better….But I’ll let you know when I get back…..JD Thompson

Jeff’s photo workshops are the BEST!


Jeff’s photography workshops are the best! Jeff is personable, experienced and knows his locations as well as photographic skills. He has helped me learn my equipment, the computer and the subject matter we are shooting. You can count on his trips being a great experience and fun! This year I produced a calendar called the Gift of Wings – I chose my favorite photos with wings – his trips made three months and the cover – Eagles, Owl and Wood Duck. You can see the calendar on facebook at Kathy N Deets , La Grange, IL or at Great memories! I hope to take more of his trips. Your welcome to call me directly for a referral – 708-542-8969.

Invaluable Feedback

Paris was great, loved the experience and your feedback the last few days was invaluable.  I was pleased with your willingness to work with me when I peppered you with questions and that really made it all worth while.  My wife has even commented on the noticeable improvement in my work.

You DID amaze me. Thank you so much!

Checked off all of the boxes!

Thank you both so much for such an enjoyable workshop. My skill level was greatly increased and that was my goal.

The group interaction and the after class discussions (ha..ha), were defiantly a bonus. I hope to do workshops with you both in the future, as this one checked off all the boxes for a successful workshop.

Over the top!

Reflecting back from this workshop…seriously once in a lifetime experience. My excitement is over the top when expressing it to others. Thank you so much for everything!

Thank YOU for hosting a terrific workshop last week. I enjoyed every moment (well, maybe not the bugs) and learned a lot about my cameras along the way. It was everything you said it would be (and more), even the breaks in shooting we got along the way were perfect, and I would take another workshop with you in a heartbeat.

Met and exceeded my requests and expectation

I went on a Tiger Photo Safari in India with Jeff and I ask Jeff to customize the trip for some extras that wanted. He met and exceeded my requests. I also traveled to Kenya with Jeff and he was great there too, you won’t be disappointed with him as your guide!

Andrew Cailiff

I learned a lot!

Thanks a lot for a great workshop. I learned a lot and enjoyed the ambience. I particularly appreciated the way could relate to different levels of expertise, which is difficult.

I would love to go on another workshop with you.
