African Wildlife Photography Experience
You will start with an in-depth orientation, followed by an intensive 3 day photography course with a professional photographer to improve on your photography skills. A further 3 weeks will be spent photographing the phenomenal wildlife in the reserve, with the guidance of our onsite wildlife photographer and field guide.
For this project, enthusiasm for photography and African wildlife is essential. Photographic knowledge and experience is helpful, but not necessary. This project has been established for all levels of ability from complete beginners to professionals. Please note that you will be taught how to edit your photos on Photoshop/Lightroom and spend a good deal of time during the 4/6/8 weeks editing your images – for this reason a basic level of computer literacy is required in order to participate.

Volunteers will need to bring their own photographic equipment - they should bring an SLR digital camera with at least an 18-55 mm lens, battery charger and external hard drive (in the form of at least a 100GB external drive). Through past feedback we now have listed a tripod as an essential item to bring with you. We also strongly advise you to bring a laptop with photo editing software to edit your photos (like Lightroom/Photoshop).
