Are You Planning A Photo Safari To Tanzania? Scroll Down For Details..

The perfect way to remember every outstanding moment of your Tanzanian wildlife safari is to record it photographically. AfricanMecca photo safaris can improve the quality of your image souvenirs. With the advent of digital photography, clear pictures are available to everyone, but there are increasing levels of expertise in DSLR shooting making use of the very best of new and old techniques for which you will benefit enormously from professional instruction. Imagine how disappointed you would be to capture the moment when a giant crocodile dragged a struggling gnu beneath the waters of the Mara River, only to find that it was out of focus, foreshortened, or out of the frame. Much can be done with computer tools to enhance a less than perfect wilderness tour image, improve exposure, shift color values, non-authentically erase and clone unwanted patches, but to catch that magical moment, surely and swiftly, with all its tension, you need to know your subject, know your setting, and know your camera. An AfricanMecca photography fieldtrip puts you in the care of a hand-picked photographic instructor so that you will learn how to get the very best out of your camera, out of the moment, and out of your dream Tanzania trip. Taking advantage of state-of-the-art digital cameras, and the intuitive abilities of a first class guide to lead you to the action, you can easily fix spectacular shots of lion cubs at play in Serengeti, rhinoceros taking cover in Ngorongoro woodland, elephants digging for water at Ruaha, hippos heaving in muddy wallows in Katavi, and African crested eagles stooping to take baby monkeys in Selous. Your expert tutor will show you how to use automatic tracking for birds, zoom battling buffalo and racing cheetahs, and also macro for miniature flowers and insects.
Experienced photographers will learn how to adjust “blur” lengths to dramatize action shots, or freeze shutter speeds to catch a moment of impact, and how to balance light and exposure for color, mood, and atmosphere, especially for morning and evening African fauna and scenic holiday shots. At all levels of expertise, there is still more to learn. New “Hipstamatic” and even more advanced mobile apps constantly extend the range of photographic possibilities from simple record keeping, photo-story telling to art forms. AfricanMecca experts choose the best Tanzania safari parks and reserves for photographic subjects, balancing the interests and expertise of small groups of participants, who stay at accommodations selected, not for luxury, but for the most rewarding subjects, although comfort is assured and accommodation can be customized to your preferences. Under supervision, you will practice composition and balance of static and action shots. You will learn to use essential filters to define landscapes, like the expansive crater iconic of an excursion of Ngorongoro; skies, streams, lakes, waterfalls, sunlight, rain and rainbows, like the hot springs at Lake Manyara and the glaciers seen on a trip to Kilimanjaro, and to estimate optimum distances for best nocturnal flash images of slinking leopard, round-eyed bushbaby, shy crested porcupine or weird aardvark with pig’s snout, rabbit ears and rat’s tail. Video safari cinematography is another popular area where knowledgeable instructors can be invaluable. You will learn quickly and enjoyably under instruction from experienced professionals who have devoted years of their lives to the science and art of photography, earning their living in the process. To do replicate that, you need to have outstanding camera talent and a wealth of experience.

There are four options of specialized photo safaris we offer:

1. AfricanMecca Premier Photographic Safaris For Tanzania

The Premier Photo Safari in Tanzania consist of small groups of guests with low guide to client ratio, ensuring you quality time and attention to find and capture the shots you want in the best venues, to give you the highest possible photographic safari experience, be it the Great Wildebeest Migration on a voyage of the Serengeti, the synchronized gnu calving at Ndutu, the elephants of Tarangire, the tree-climbing lions of Manyara or the chimpanzees on a primate tour of Mahale Mountains. Depending on the venue and date of each particular event of interest, you will stay at the best camps and lodges, with only two photographers to each customized 4x4 game viewing vehicle.

2. AfricanMecca Independent Photographic Safaris For Tanzania

For clients who have already attended one of more photographic safari, there is the option of taking their work to higher levels on an Independent Photo Safari with their naturalist guide who has a yearning for photography and private vehicle to test out your schooled expertise. This is available all year round, a seven to ten day tour of one or two safari parks in northern and southern Tanzania at the right time for breathtaking picture opportunities.

3. AfricanMecca Custom Tailor-Made & Private Photographic Safaris For Tanzania

Our Custom Photo Safaris are geared towards the exact needs and flexible timetable of the client with a one to one professional personal photography coach in your preferred wilderness in Tanzania. 70% of bookings of this private option are repeats in a particular genre with a named photo expert.

4. AfricanMecca Photographic Workshops For Tanzania

The Photo Workshop Safari combine three or four days at a given location with analytical workshops and discussions suitable for beginners in Tanzanian travel image-shooting, novices at capturing wildlife observations and refresher courses for more advanced clients.
