Come to Kenya with Me
The dates are February 1-11, 2016. We’ll meet in Nairobi and then take a couple days to see Lake Naivasha and Lake Nakuru before driving through the great Rift Valley to the beautiful grasslands of the Maasai Mara. There we’ll spend 2 days in the southwest at one of my favourite camps: Kichwa Tembo, and 3 days in the Northern Conservancy at Porini Lion Tented Camp. Some of my best days alive have been bouncing around the mara, photographing elephants, giraffe, zebra, lions, and others of the incredible life on the savannah. There’s a quality to the light there, the air, even the passage of time. With all my heart I love this place, and long to return. I’m literally counting days. And I’d love to share it with you.
This is not a workshop, per se. It’s a shared travel experience. I’ll be your guide, but mostly in this small group of a dozen or so, I hope we’ll be friends. There will be plenty of time for conversations, great meals, and sharing photographs and techniques.
If you’ve wanted to experience this part of Africa, or photograph beside me, or sit and talk about our craft with a drink in your hand as the sun goes down behind the iconic Acacia trees of the savannah, this might be as good a chance as you’re going to get.

You’d think this would get old somehow, but the release of any new book is exhilarating, even more so when it’s a printed book. If you’re at the What If! Conference, come […]
When I encourage younger photographers to take their time it’s because we tend to be obsessed with doing things faster and too often the speed with which we do things subverts our mindfulness and creativity. It also sabotages the chance for relationships, which won’t hurt you if you’re shooting air shows, but when you’re making […]
To Africa with the Fuji X-T1
Two Fuji X-T1s and lenses for this trip to Kenya. The bag is one of my carry-ons, a briefcase from Filson My conversion to, and love affair with, smaller cameras is about as complete as it can be now. If the social media I’m reading is to be believed, it’s complete for many others as […]
Postcards from Hokkaido
When I came to Hokkaido for the first time for a wildlife tour in 2013, I fell in love with the place. It’s vast, wild, elegant, and her people live close to the land. I left with a longing to return, so when Martin Bailey asked me to come back and do this trip again, […]
