Suzette Allen and Jon Yoshinaga African Safari 2018 Dates to be announced . March/April 2018

April  2018.

 

Suzette Allen Safari Workshop

Suzette Allen and Jon Yoshinaga, both professionals in Photography over 25 years, have been leading educators in our industry for the past 10 years, helping photographers embrace and understand Digital, Photoshop, Workflow and the technical side of our creativity process.

Now they are leading the charge into the new era with HYBRID Imaging, combining stills, video and audio to create compelling Moving portraits [eProducts] that clients love! 

In their usual down-to-earth style, they make even tough concepts easy to understand and fun to learn! Be inspired and challenged with fresh creativity and new ways of communicating visually with HYBRID images…. the artful blend of photo, video and sound!

Suzette teaches Hybrid (video) and Photoshop classes all over the world, and photography too! You will see her at camera stores, photographic conventions, pro photography schools, and doing private consulting as well! Her passion for people and teaching, along with her keen understanding of imaging and technology make her a sought-after instructor in many venues!

Suzette has been teaching Adobe Photoshop for 13 years, and recently has blossomed into Hybrid, the creative combo of Photos, Video and Audio!  She also is a mirrorless camera user, adapting well to the new technology of the day and making it work for her! 

For her hands- on courses, Suzette is joined by her techie husband Jonny Yo, who is the Audio “sound hound” and helps with video tecniques and editing too. Together they make a great team, helping many photographers embrace technology and learn how to stay on the front edge of creative imaging!

Shopping Experience at Cambanos & Son

Idube Photo Safaris has searched for the ultimate South African Shopping Experience . Clothing, Jewelry, Arts and Crafts, Beadwork, Drums, and just about everything under the sun that is African. This business is one of the biggest in South Africa, supplying the world with African curios. But the pledge remains the same “Make sure the customer is happy” and hope they eventually become friends. The business is still run by the family today; Gerry Cambanos is only a phone call away if you require a piece of Africa in your home. We will spend approximately two hours at this amazing location. This stop will be in route to our Lesedi Cultural Village Experience and sleepover.

Mashatu Main Lodge  Botswana

Main-Camp-Pool1 Zebra-at-Sunset2  Main-Camp-Room1

Mashatu is situated on the eastern fringes of the Kalahari Desert and water is its most precious resource. The sighting of the Mashatu camps in close proximity to water, and in thickets of vegetation, automatically locates the visitor into an enclave populated by birds and animals.

Mashatu Main Camp is an oasis among the undulating and seemingly endless plains of the wild. Burning torches at the camp’s entrance lure safari-goers home where they experience the embodiment of sublime hospitality.

For the client who is accustomed to luxury, this camp will meet every expectation. 14 luxury suites lie along the camp’s perimeter and are designed to allow absolute privacy and a communion with the bush and its inhabitants. Watch elephants splashing at the waterhole, listen to the lyrical melody of the woodlands kingfisher on a branch overhead, smell the grassy scent of the bushveld, and touch the bark of an ancient tree and inhale a breath of air so pure, it’s intoxicating.

Each of the air-conditioned suites at Mashatu Main Camp is tastefully decorated and includes impressive black and white prints of Africa’s most beautiful animals. A double bed and an extra-large single bed, together with a seating area that includes a single day bed, comfortably accommodates families with younger children. The ample en-suite bathroom with both bath and shower facilities and a separate W.C. complete the well-appointed suites.

This is the ideal camp for the family traveler. A large swimming pool is a focal point where MSH Main Campvisitors cool down and relax between game activities. The Discovery Room is the portal through which curious visitors get a glimpse of another world – one that existed long before the appearance of man. The animal specimens and relics will fascinate and educate visitors of all ages, as will the resident crocodiles – both great and small.
