Kenya Explorer- 10 day Photography Expedition

+ More details

Description

We are pleased to present the ‘Kenya Explorer - Photographic Expedition’, an adventure designed exclusively for photographers who want access to some of the lesser-known locations for wildlife photography in the land of the noble Maasai.

Your tour will be lead by award-winning photographer John Quintero, who will provide you with advice and teaching to ensure you achieve spectacular photographs. Accompanied by expert Maasai guides, who know these lands better than anyone, you will experience exclusive encounters with not only the wildlife but also the communities, to learn about their way of life and the traditions of this ancient African culture.

We guarantee you a fascinating experience in a dream destination. Join us to find out why the word 'safari' was born in Kenya, and why it means 'the journey’ in the Swahili language.

WHAT MAKES THIS EXPEDITION EXTRAORDINARY

• An expedition dedicated exclusively to providing the best wildlife sighting opportunities on off-road routes, to see and photograph the animals more closely.

• Open vehicles, perfect for photography and exclusive for our group.

• As international travel has still not fully recovered, this may be the only time you will ever have to witness the best of the African wildlife without the masses of tourists.

• Accommodation in Porini traditional bushcamps, located in conservation areas, with all the comforts including private bathroom, hot showers and excellent international food and drinks, including alcohol.

• The opportunity to visit the locations at the perfect times to maximise available light for stunning photography.

• Visits to Maasai communities to experience their traditions and witness the magic of this iconic African culture.

• Contribution to the conservation of wildlife and the well-being of the Maasai communities. We only work with companies committed to sustainable and conservation tourism.

• Advice before, during and after the expedition regarding equipment, setting, tips and the photographic material captured.

•Having an expert photographer by your side during the whole trip, guiding you and ensuring you capture the best photographs.

  • John delivered his "Up close and personal: a Photographic Journey in South America, Asia and Africa" to Woking Photographic Society. The images were all terrific and some of the stories behind them quite astonishing, all delivered in a very personable style. A thoroughly enjoyable evening and we would love to see more of John's work at some stage in the future.

  • Hi John. I really enjoyed your presentation yesterday. Your use of light was superb. I wondered why the presentation suddenly cut off - thought it was maybe my connection. It has happened once before that fb have cut a photo webinar because of “nudity”. Pity they don’t seem to appreciate the difference between art and straight nudity.

  • Impressionante!!! I was just at the point of posting a comment when FB pulled the plug.
    Great set of photographs, and great presentation.
    I wish you all the best with your tours and hopefully this virus will be under control in the next 12 months and allow us all to continue with our lives.

  • John delivers a superb presentation - the photos and his explanation of how and why he took them was excellent but what was extremely impressive was not only the story associated with the image but the way he told that story.

    It comes across that he really loves his native country ( Columbia) and you great empathy for the local population and the tribes- people of the Amazon

    Absolutely superb, very professional and not to be missed
