SAFARI AND WORKSHOPS

I truly enjoy sharing the beauty of our natural world with others.

I have extensive experience and knowhow in teaching photography and post-processing techniques and really enjoy doing that.

I also accompany guests on photographic safaris to show them the best spots and best ways to make unforgettable shots of wildlife, nature and landscapes.

I am based in Lusaka, Zambia and travel all over Zambia, Malawi, Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Tanzania.

I offer:

Post-processing classes on Adobe Photoshop

Post-processing is almost as important as making the photo itself.

It can make an average photo into a good photo and a good photo into a award winning masterpiece!

The best post-processing can be done on a photo with the right exposure and sharpness.

And the best post-processing software is Adobe Photoshop.

The problem with Photoshop is that it is not an easy software to use.

But with some very simple basic steps you will get the hang of it very quickly.

Whether you are a beginner or an advanced user.

Included in the Photoshop classes are easy to install Photoshop actions and presets which will make your life soooo much easier and will give you much faster and better results.

These Post-processing classes can be done both privately and in small groups.

Both at your home, a meeting place, at a wildlife resort or during a safari trip.

A few things that were changed / improved:

• white balance
• contrast
• brightness
• sharpness
• toned down background colours and contrast
• deepened subject colours
• removed the tail of the second bird
• removed big black spots in the background
• added a logo


This can all be done in less than 10 minutes.
I can teach you how to do that

PERSONALISED PHOTO SAFARI

I organise and accompany personalised photographic safari trips to anywhere within Zambia and Malawi, but also to Botswana, Namibia, Zimbabwe and Tanzania.

These can be 3 day trips to a nearby destination or a complete 3 week safari.

The nice thing with a photographic safari is that we will always search for the best subjects, location and available light to make great and memorable photos.

This means that we might stay around a specific place, bird or animal longer than what you would normally do on a safari.

It is very rewarding to try different setting, angles and lenses to get the best results.

And that takes time and is great fun to do!

In the afternoon or evening we can do post-processing on a laptop together and show each other our results.

Do you like waterfalls, landscapes, big cats, splashing hippos, colourful birds, beautiful sunsets and/or the starry sky at night?

We can choose the right route and destinations based on your preferences.

You can choose to camp or to stay in more luxurious lodges, depending on your budget and preferences.

It works like this.

You contact me through email or WhatsApp for a first information exchange.

Then we set a meeting in person or on an internet video call, where we discuss all options and see whether or not we have the necessary “click” to travel together.

I then make a proposal including a quote and you can make a decision.
