Photo Workshops

Scheduled Photo Workshops

This is a great way to kick off a larger African safari itinerary but can be embedded at any point into your safari experience.  We encourage you to join a 4 – 10 day workshop where you’ll learn expert tips from a local professional wildlife photographer and interact with like-minded enthusiasts whether you’re a budding amateur or seasoned photographer!

Set Schedules, Small Groups

The scheduled photography workshops offer a strong INSTRUCTIONAL component in a small group setting that maximizes the unique photo opportunities presented while on safari.

Interaction with a professional photographer helps not only in capturing better images but also enhances your ability to get more from the overall experience through helpful critique and post-editing sessions using ADOBE LIGHTROOM
