Let's talk about...





Well that's what the wildlife seemed to be talking about this last week. The final drive of the week was one of the most interesting I have been on in a long time. We had the opportunity to watch two Spotted Hyenas mating as well as a lion and lioness doing the same (while the lion's brother looked on). Still, not all wildlife photography is of such a nature...and sometimes simple portraits will suffice.

The last week was the biggest group to date with 10 photographers joining the workshop. The pace was frenetic  for all, but I managed to collapse only one student with a migraine (sorry Kerry). 10 photographers draws a lot of intensity when it comes to group sessions, and this months group were fantastic. There was a great repartee that seemed to develop between the group as we went out on shoots and bandied over crit sessions. Yes, the weather gremlin was still in force. I swear that African Impact are going to ban me soon as I always without fail seem to bring the grey skies. As I write this the sun is shining, but last week it was anything but.

 

Overall a wonderful with a really a great group of photogs. I'm looking forward to seeing what comes out of this month.

For anyone wanting to book for the next workshop which takes place between the 14th and the 19th of November, please get hold of me asap. Numbers are starting to come in and we are wanting to keep it to a maximum of 6 for November.
