Pictures from 2014 Tanzania Photo Safari

Posted November 25th, 2014 by   |  Photography, Travel  |  Permalink

This year’s Tanzania Photo Safari was one of the best we’ve ever run. We photographed just about everything possible during our adventure and had a blast along the way.

My kit this year included the brand new Nikon D750 and I’m proud to report that it performed like a champ. This camera is a winner as far as I’m concerned and I kept commenting to my participants how much I enjoyed having it along on the adventure. Highly recommended.

Here are a few pics from the trip. Enjoy!

I’ve just returned from leading a private group photo trip to Tanzania for five people. We had quite an adventure photographing the beautiful landscapes and abundant wildlife throughout Tanzania’s northern national parks. Here are a few photos from the journey. Enjoy.

By the way, our next group trip to Tanzania is scheduled for November, 2013 and is sold out. After that, we have a trip scheduled for November, 2014 through the Nikonians Academy.

Off to Tanzania for a few weeks for photos of amazing wildlife and beautiful landscapes. I’ll be testing out some new camera gear (Nikon 1 and Nikon P7100) while creating new images and enjoying the company of 11 intrepid adventurers.

See you on the flip side in mid-November!

People of the Masai

Posted November 24th, 2010 by   |  Photography, Travel  |  Permalink

Last week while in Tanzania, we took a day trip up to the Loliondo region of the northern part of the Serengeti. One of the local Masai tribes is very friendly to photographers, so our group spent a few hours getting to know some new friends! What a great time. Here are some images from the Masai as they danced, laughed, posed and hammed it up for the camera.
