Good morning from the streets of Italy. I was up very early and after the sunrise busted, I caught this shop keeper opening his shop before others were up and moving. He was as interested in me as I was him which gave me a chance to catch him in a moment of hesitation as he looked into the camera.Read More
A year in the making, and with thanks to the efforts of Nicky at Eyes on Africa, I have built a nearly perfect photography adventure to photograph the seldom visited tribes of the Omo Valley. An adventure totally focused on capturing these tribes and limited to only four clients. Bring back images that are seldom seen of tribes that may soon be lost forever.Read More
I’m back from Tanzania and UAE only to find myself off the Namibia in a few hours. Once again, I will have only one day of internet connection while in the capital city of Namibia, so I wanted to give you a preview of what we will be photographing (taken from my 2009 trip) in the images below.Read More
We boarded a bush flight to Linyanti Bush Camp after a fond farewell to the wonderful staff at Khwai Tented Camp.
Bordering Chobe National Park, Linyanti is a rugged paradise. Our camp is situated right on the banks of the Linyanti River, in a private concession area, with woodlands and marshes that support impressive numbers of wildlife.
Almost immediately after arriving to our camp, we watched large herds of elephant cross the Linyanti River on their way to settle in the uplands for the night. We had a serious photography session!
If you like elephants and water, this is the camp to visit – and this is the right time of year to do it. Mature males jockeyed for position while the mothers protected their young. With all of that activity, we had a smorgasbord of endless interesting interactions to observe and photograph.
I met my group in Johannesburg where we had a wonderful dinner at Tribes African Grill Steak House. The following morning we headed out to Maun, Botswana to begin our Muench workshop. After several airline delays, we finally made it to Khwai Tented Camp, and were able to catch the last bit of light at the nearby hippo streams.
I have a very talented group of photographers who have named their vehicles the Botswana Boys, under the guide of Pilot, and the Cologne Connection, under the guide of Partner.
Tomorrow, it is a very early rise (0500) as we start our search for African wild dogs and leopards.
