Wildlife and Travel Photography


The Wildlife and Travel Photography program was established in partnership with our sister company, Africa Media. It offers an unparalleled opportunity for participants to develop their photographic skills to a professional level while exploring some of the best wildlife and adventure photography platforms the Garden Route has to offer.

Students will receive expert guidance on how to produce artistic and breathtaking photographs of the incredible wildlife of Africa. In addition students will receive tutoring in photographic techniques and how to develop a successful career as a photographer. On occasion students may also have the opportunity to participate in professional shoots for our clients, primarily to produce marketing material used in advertising and social media campaigns.

A fascinating introduction to dSLR photography for beginners. Advanced users are given training in specific functions on their cameras and usually find buttons they never knew existed!  There are multiple tutorials covered but our most popular are: Shooting and making composite photos;  How to successfully set yourself up in stock photography, basic to advanced training in Adobe Lightroom; Adobe Photoshop essentials; How to market yourself and sell including blogging and social media use.
