Photography Workshop

A practical, hands-on photography workshop aimed at outdoor photographers of all levels.

This is a two-day course divided into practical outings and theoretical presentations. Camera functions as well as technical proficiency are covered.

Theoretical sessions are done through a series of interactive PowerPoint presentations while practical outings and tutorials take place on game drives or other suitable excursions.

We can also incorporate this workshop as part of your safari.

Specially arranged courses are also presented to nature guides who are guiding photographers on a regular basis.
