Planning Your Photo Safari to Africa
For most of us, a big trip to Africa is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that we may not get to repeat. If you’re just starting with your research, you might be asking yourself what kind of experience you get in one African country or location versus another. This is the first of three blog posts about the three countries in Southern Africa that we’ve travelled to and photographed in, plus a few tips on what clothing and camera gear to bring with on your own trip.
Thanks for a great 2017!
A terrific year comes to a close. In 2017 we spent time with so many great people, on far-flung adventures and also closer to home. It’s so much fun to share these experiences with likeminded, creative and adventurous people!
Photography and adventure in Southern Africa
One says if you have been to Africa once, you’ll end up revisiting it again (and again and again). Matt and I couldn’t agree more! This year we spent a month between Botswana, Zimbabwe and Namibia. We got infected with the Africa bug and now, back in the office, we feel like we’re suffering from post – safari – depression.
Faroe Islands – a photographers paradise!
A few days ago we wrapped up a great trip to the Faroe Islands. We had been up there the year before, therefore Matt and I were excited to go back and explore more of these 18 rocky, volcanic islands between Iceland and Norway where more sheep can be found than inhabitants.
Unit 7: Landscape Photography Field Trip in Val Bavona
For those who don’t know it, Ticino’s Val Bavona is a unique and somewhat mysterious place. Small villages made up completely of stone buildings are scattered throughout the sheer-sided granitic valley. Bavona is one of Switzerland’s steepest inhabited valleys. Semi-nomadic herders sought refuge here hundreds of years ago as they were pursued by marauders while grazing their livestock.
