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 Created Image, Vol.02

This July we hosted the second Created Image conference here in Vancouver. This time I was joined by Steve Simon and Piet van Den Eynde for this intense photography weekend. Over two days we talked about making compelling photographs – from learning to see and honing the skills that have nothing to do with the […]

The Created Image Video Series, Vol 1.

When we decided to host an intimate, intensive weekend conference in Vancouver this summer, I was blown away by what an incredible experience it was. We spent two days together, and we all left exhausted, inspired, and changed. In all there were 10 sessions, and once we cut them and edited them together we had […]
