A Portrait of Namibia

A photography workshop and tour….

A portrait of this beautiful country and people….

People, wildlife and landscape…

We start with two full days at Spitzkoppe Lodge in the classroom during the day and out shooting this stunning landscape and animals at sunrise and sunset. This place is so beautiful you can photograph from your room.

During these first two days we will cover:

  • Techniques for photographing people and animals

  • Explore what makes a compelling portrait

  • Len will show you how he creates his captivatingly sensitive portraits

  • Framing your subject to express the emotions you are feeling and to show what you are seeing

  • Using natural light to effectively light your subject

  • Make sure you are up to date with your photographic technique

  • Critique your current work, giving encouraging and supportive feedback and doing any necessary error correction

During these first two days Len will ensure you are ready to photograph the rest of locations, people and animals we will search out.

Our next overnight stop is Camp Kipwe in Damaraland. Here we will drive through the Huab River, hopefully finding desert adapted elephants and other game. This overnight stop over reduces the drive to our next destination.

We next visit Kaokoland. To concentrate for a few days on people. Opuwo is a small typical African town, where a range of different people live, from the traditional Himba tribes to Herero, Damara and Owambo cultures. Along the way, stop at various villages to interact and photograph the local people.

Lastly we visit Etosha. Here we can finish our amazing journey with a few days photographing animals in this amazing park.

Along the way we will regularly stop and look at your work for ongoing feedback.

Throughout the tour / workshop Len will be available to help you with your photography. Guiding and supporting you.

This workshop / tour is run by Australia’s leading African Tour Operator here in Wollara Sydney. The Classic Safari Company has been operating outstanding tours since 1992 years.
