Wildebeests plunging into the Mara river during great migration in Masai Mara NRAll Image Safaris photographic tours have an in-built “photo workshop” component.

However, if you have a passion for wildlife and want to improve your photographic competence in amazing settings in a more systematic and structured manner, Image Safaris can organise field photography workshops and training for small groups of participants.

The workshop programme will be tailored to the skill level of the participants. It will consist of a combination of tutorials and practical sessions, with time set aside for discussions, questions and answers, critique and plenty of one-to-one assistance as required.

Our tutorials will hone in subjects critical to making good wildlife photographs as well as subjects and specific topics of your choice, and the importance of observing animal behaviour before setting out to photograph. Tutorials will be followed by hands-on photography for most of the day.

Our workshops cater for wildlife lovers and photo enthusiasts of all skill levels with various types of cameras. Your guide and accompanying photographer, Federico Veronesi, has been sharing his knowledge on animal photography for over six years. He will provide advice, hints and tips throughout the game drive. He will always explain key decisions concerning, among others, subject framing, choice of lens, composition, backgrounds, vehicle position in relation to light as well as photographic techniques on how to best capture animal behaviour.

Constant image reviewing on your camera screen will be encouraged throughout the game drive in order to make adjustments and improve your images as you go.

On request from the guests, Federico will provide you with informal computer sessions in the evening, where he will go through post processing techniques and other subjects of your choice.

Image Safaris partners with Africa Wild Truck (www.africawildtruck.com), a photographic tour operator based in Malawi, in the organization of dedicated photo workshops in a variety of locations in Southern Africa, such as South Luangwa National Park in Zambia and Liwonde National Park in Malawi.
