An extraordinary experience with Zimbabwe's number one professional photographer, along with world renowned professional bush guide to explore the beauty of the untamed Hwange National Park in Zimbabwe.
Each day you will be taken on an adventure, Julian teaching you about the wilderness and wildlife that surrounds you, and Lesanne teaching you how to capture it with your camera. A truly once in a lifetime opportunity.
Capturing anything from the sun setting over a watering hole, an elephant playing in the mud, a lion boldly crossing the plains, a Tawny Eagle swooping down to its prey, to subjects as small as a dung beetle tumbling along the road with his perfect ball of poop! There is so much in the bush that is absolutely fascinating.
Each drive/walk we will look at one specific aspect of photography e.g shutter speed, ISO, aperture, framing, panning etc. That will slowly teach you to be completely in control of your camera and capture your perfect image. Two evenings will also be focused on long exposure and night photography.
