Mastering Wildlife Photography

Session 2 – Practical

Our practical session takes place at the Big 5 Dinokeng Game Reserve just North of Pretoria.

Knowledgeable guides, trackers and photographic instructors are always close at hand to assist with any questions.

The rest of the day is filled with reviews, discussions on good photographic techniques and a great lunch before an evening game drive with the sun setting over the African bushveld.
