Why not go as the worlds grea. . . er. . .most humble wildlife photographer?! From one of my most iconic exploits, use the knit hat and stuffed seal provided and be the life of your local party! Not SPOOKY enough for you?! Malarkey! The fear of corrupted cards and drives haunts us all to the very core! *shudder*.
The Mala Mala Reserve in South Africa was the last stop on September’s southern African sojourn. As promised, we were able to photograph some big cats doing their big cat things. One memorable pair was a singleton cheetah and its mother. Having no siblings, he relentlessly harried his mother and had epic solo zoomies. Learning how to successfully hunt and navigate its environment is of primary importance to young cats and this guy was doing his best under tough circumstances.
This is the last batch of photos from Africa for the time being – stay tuned for photos from our fall workshops! We’ve been kicking around the PNW and this weekend we are headed down to Sedona – and then it’s on to Oaxaca, Mexico for Day of the Dead!
It has been an exceptional three months of photographic opportunities! I am feverishly finishing up work for my wildlife opus to be published in Fall 2023 as well as teaching photo and travel skills to fellow enthusiasts. Check out the new imagery from Mongolia, Madagascar, Alaska, Namibia, Botswana, and South Africa.
Enjoy the photos – looking back, I’m pretty happy with the sheer number of various critters, beasts, and birds I’ve been able to capture this year!
Now is also the time to be looking ahead to my 2023 workshops and events. Trips like our Katmai tours and abstract workshops sell out early, so If it’s something you might be interested in – lock your spot up early!
We are also just a couple of weeks away from what is going to be special treat – Day of the Dead in Oaxaca, Mexico. If you’re looking for a small-group photo retreat with experienced professionals to guide you and top-notch amenities, this is the ultimate Oaxaca experience!
Following our trip to Namibia (Photos here if you missed them!) our group moved on to Botswana to capture an abundance of wildlife. Lions, leopards, elephants, giraffes, a plethora of birds, and much more! Not only was this a great opportunity to capture a wide variety of different animals – it was also a chance to explore various animal behaviors as well. Enjoy the photos!
