Africa PhotoAdventure
with Eddie Soloway, Jennifer Spelman
May 13 - May 24, 2011

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.

Experience the classic romance of old Africa with veteran photographic workshop leaders Eddie Soloway, Jennifer Spelman, and Renie Haiduk. Safari means “journey” in Swahili, and this promises to be an epic one in an African countryside that is still wild, unspoiled, and far removed from the political turmoil that plagues some areas. Our adventure begins with arrival at Kilimanjaro airport in the shadow of the famous mountain. From there, Peter Jones of Tanganyika Film and Safari Outfitters (TFSO) transports us to Ndarakwai, his privately owned, exclusive, 11,000-acre game preserve, elephant sanctuary, and camp. Paleoanthropologist-turned-safari-guide, Peter has carved out a permanent tented guest retreat near his home and is actively working to preserve both the wildlife and the way of life of the local people. Wild animals are plentiful around Ndarakwai in a diversity of habitats, from riparian woodland and acacia savannah, to open grassland with views of Mounts Meru and Kilimanjaro.

The advantages of staying at a private camp include limited access by others, less-crowded safari vehicles, the flexibility to follow animals off-road, and the opportunity for night drives. After lunch on the 16th, we will take a charter flight and begin a six-night journey with stops in the Serengeti Park, Olduvai Gorge, and the Ngorongoro Crater. Our last two nights are back at Ndarakwai, with opportunities to meet and photograph the colorful Maasai people in two villages nearby, and continue exploring the diverse landscape of Peter's preserve. Photographic help and inspiration will be provided daily in the form of creative indoor sessions and in-the-field reminders. Several image review sessions will be available for those photographers bringing laptops, editing software, and knowledge of the digital workflow. With that said, photographers of all levels, using film or digital cameras, are welcome. A list of recommended equipment will be provided upon registration.
