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.

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 […]
Northern Kenya: A Case Study
Two weeks ago I returned from assignment work in northern Kenya. You’ve seen some of the work already. It’s by far my favourite work, done for my favourite organization – the Boma Project. In fact I like them so much that after my first assignment with them I became a donor, and committed to making […]
Q+A: Fuji X on Assignment
You’d be amazed how many emails and comments I get that begin with the words, “I know you don’t like gear questions, but…” So to be clear, I don’t mind gear questions at all. I just don’t know why people think I’m the best person to answer them. I like gear. Hell, I LOVE some […]
Kenya: Tech on the Road
There were two pieces of tech, cameras aside (and I’ll talk about them in a separate post), that made my work in Kenya last month possible: one was the Goal Zero Sherpa 100, the other was the DeLorme InReach, a satellite communicator. Power has been an issue on past trips, and this time I picked […]
