You have always wanted to be a great wildlife photographer and then realised that taking great wildlife photos is not as easy as it looks. Not only do you need creativity and technical knowledge, but also the knowledge and understanding of one’s subject matter.

From a learning point of view, nothing beats spending quality time with like-minded people and sharing ideas and tips  out in the field.  Our wildlife photography workshop with Megan McCabe aims to reveal the thought processes behind the making of a good wildlife photograph. The course will give aspiring wildlife photographers time and opportunity to put these thoughts into action in the field, under the guidance of an experienced wildlife photographer.

Participants will enjoy and unforgettable wildlife experience – your adventure starts with a one-hour Walk with the Elephants, a close-up with Africa’s largest land mammal.  This will be followed by a photographic presentation by Meghan McCabe that will focus on helping you get the best out of your existing equipment, maximizing the impact of your wildlife images and exploring the nuances of what makes a great wildlife image.

Then you’re off on a two-hour sunset game drive where you can put your knowledge to the test and improve your skills along the way, while and capture great wildlife images of your own, with guidance from the professional photographer on your vehicle.

This workshop will leave you not only inspired,  but filled with knowledge, ideas and the desire to do better. Remember, wildlife photography is not about the size of your lens or where you go to take photos – it is about having a love and appreciation for nature and telling the story the best through your images
