About Us

Wild Compass Photographic Adventure Tours is photographers Shayne McGuire and Danny Sullivan.

About Shayne- I have a dedication to wildlife, and provide tours that will teach you not only how to photograph wildlife, but respect it. I don't want to put stress and any animal and will pull back if behavior in the animal changes. I also scout all my locations first before offering tours there, so that you know I have knowledge of what you need, and what to expect.

I teach photography at Tri Community Adult Photo Education in West Covina, CA. and have been teaching there since 2003. I have a teaching credential.

I have been running the tours for over 6 years and workshops for 4.

For the past 3 summers, I have worked on an expedition boat in the Arctic as the photographer in residence and in Antarctica for them in 2016.

I won PPLAC's Nature photographer of the year, 2013 in Jan of 2014.

We run workshops and photographic tours in Africa, Alaska, and Norway

For many years I exhibited and sold my photographic work at Celtic/Irish/ Scottish festivals. All my work was shot on film and hand developed by myself in the darkroom. Besides my passion for landscape and Celtic ancestry, wildlife was always #1. I now exhibit my work at San Dimas festival of the Arts in mid Oct.

My work of Ireland, Scotland and England has been published in catalogs, magazines, and on t shirts and books. Several pieces have been featured on TV shows.

My workshops are all hands on help, and on my tours, I am constantly checking to make sure everyone is happy with the shots they are getting.

Danny Sullivan is the other half, he has merited multiple times in local photographic competitions, and is always on hand to help with equipment and settings.
