Come to Kenya with Me

 20140118-Kenya-8613-Edit 20100118_Safari-M_009 Maasai Mara, Kenya, Africa20110125_KenyaSafari_2132Maasai Mara, Kenya, Africa    In the next 12 months, as far as I can see, there are only 3 opportunities to travel with me and 2 of those – the  Within The Frame Portfolio Series trips to Venice and Jodhpur –  filled up within a day of being announced. The one I have not yet announced is a trip in February 2016 to one of my favourite places on the planet: Kenya’s Maasai Mara.
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.20110128_KenyaSafari_236620100112_Safari_27220110128_KenyaSafari_275920100116_Safari-L_091-2
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.

The Visual Toolbox is Shipping!

I’m speaking at a creativity conference in Mexico this week, but I wanted to let you know The Visual Toolbox is now shipping! 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 […]

Time Taken

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 […]
