Immerse yourself in an environment sure to rejuvenate your photographic creativity: the South African Safari.

Your photography career couldn’t ask for a more exhilarating event.
Each day will include two trips out on the South African Safari with plenty of rest and relaxation at the luxurious camp. Kevin will be leading 1-2 hour workshops each day relating to your needs about workflow, Photoshop®, lighting, composition, creativity, and more.

Your private guide will have expert knowledge about the area you will be traveling, the wildlife you will be experiencing, will be devoted to your party – answering questions and sharing information about your wildlife encounters. Because our groups all have a common interest, we can tailor the game drives to our interests.
  •  Wildlife Viewing: Are wildlife areas are huge and have a very large diversity of Animal life, Bird life, Plant life, and Geology. We may choose to focus on predators (lions, hyaenas , cheetahs and leopards), or the large herbivores (elephants, giraffes, rhinos, zebra, and wildebeest ) however we never know what we might come across while out in the African bush. We do share radio calls and work with other Safari Vehicles in the area, working together to locate the best wildlife sightings. In addition to looking for wildlife, we stop in the mornings for coffee and muffins , and in the evening for sundowners and snacks.
