Regular African safaris certainly take you to some amazing places. But they don’t teach you about wildlife photography, or about your camera. Joining our African photographic tour means that not only will you have access to amazing places. You will be joining a trip designed with photographic opportunities in mind. You’ll be accompanied by an experienced field guide along with an expert photographer (in this case, me!).
I have many years experience as a field guide. But on the African photographic tours that are offered here, former colleague Ryan Kerr, of Wild Planet Safaris, will run the trip ‘on the ground’. This is so that I can concentrate on helping you to master both your camera and the techniques of wildlife photography in an unparalleled location – Kruger National Park.
Your trip will be immensely fun – and a huge tick off most people’s bucket list. And joining a dedicated African photographic tour means that you will have a small group of likeminded travellers with you. You will all be seeking amazing photographic experiences. You will have guides who understand what you are looking for. They will give you the time needed to get the shot, rather than rushing on to the next stop (though we do have to abide by the rules of the park in terms of getting into camp on time!). Experience allows us to anticipate and explain animal behaviour, which can help you to prepare for what might come next. Joining our African photographic tour means that you will have not only an experienced photographer but also a generous teacher, travelling with you to help you make the most of those opportunities.
Much of the learning will be in the field. But joining one of my African photographic tours means that you have access to daily mini-workshops. These cover essential skills as well as post-processing techniques to truly make your images shine.
