Hi there everyone!

It has been another eventful and incredible week in the bush as we had the Wildlife Photography Course with Chris Martin this weekend.

The weather was not ideal for photography but this couldn’t keep our photographers down as they gladly accepted the challenge!

The African bushveld is always beautiful. Endless opportunities to experiment with photography constantly present themselves… We photographed everything from the Burchell’s Coucal and Impala to amazing breeding herds of the African Elephant and the ever so photogenic Giraffe… We even got to see a magnificent male cheetah which is more than a bonus!

The overcast weather made for frequent Spotted Hyena sightings which is also special to see. We then did what photographers do best… We made ourselves comfortable at a stunning bird hide and waited to see what comes to visit, coupled with a good cup of coffee and tea! An impressive herd of Blue Wildebeest decided to join us for a drink which made for excellent photographic opportunities…

Bird hide bliss!

One thing is for sure – there is NEVER a dull moment with photographers as any simple object or animal can quickly be turned into a snap-shot frenzy 🙂 A lot was learnt in such a short space of time and now it’s up to taking many more amazing photographs in the future!
