I believe a very important detail of any photography workshop is a small group. A small group of participants plus an epic location equals the solid foundation for the trip of a lifetime! I myself have attended countless workshops over the years both in the US and around the Globe and my number one mission has become to insert many of the "likes" and improve upon the "dislikes" of each of those experiences.
Africa is indeed a magical place for all those who love nature and especially spectacular for those of us who have a passion for photographing wildlife. Whether it is your first trip to Africa or your 4th trip to Africa the amazement remains the same as we photograph the national parks and refuges of Tanzania. We will photograph Arusha National Park (where we will see the Colobus Monkeys and baboon troops) Tarangire National Park (the mecca for Baobab Trees and Elephants) Serengeti National Park (Lions, Cheetahs, Zebras, Elephants, Giraffes, Hippos and Wildebeests just to name a few), Ngorongoro Crater (this is where we likely photograph the Big 5!) the Maasai Mara (where we will photograph Leopards and Crocodiles and aim to witness the famous Wildebeest crossing) and Lake Manyara. We will visit a Maasai village where we will not only learn about the native culture but we will have a rare opportunity to photograph their native dances and celebrations with a small peek into their daily routines and lives. We will learn about customs and history and folklore from our amazing, very experienced guides and we will spend the evenings under the stars with campfires and great conversation recapping the day's events and planning for tomorrow.
