Africa Workshop

In the latest newsletter, check out this BBC documentary on Madagascar, one of the many places we are going on the upcoming African Photo Workshop. I learned all sorts of things about this place... like 80% of the species there are found nowhere else on earth. You'll love the documentary plus you will get to hear the sweet whispers of Sir David Attenborough!

Madagascar Native dress

One thing that was really different for me on this Madagascar trip was taking people pictures - - not really my thing but there was enough other photographers doing it that I could simply tag along and sneak a shot over their shoulder.
For whatever reason -- I'm very uncomfortable just pointing my camera at people - and no more comfortable asking for their permission.

Africa Photo Adventure

If you missed our last Africa photo workshop, don't forget to check out the new one where we are visiting Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Madagascar! I'd safely say that MOST of our guests last time were still relative beginners, and it's really nothing to worry about. A lot of people think that when you go to Africa that you have to be some kind of an awesome, experienced photographer, but that's just not the case.

I just had my friend Neville Jones over... he went with us last time and helped plan the whole event. He helped us plan this one too (he's perfect, having been there over 15 times) and got me all excited about the details of the trip. It's a long one, clocking in at about three weeks starting in late September this year. But you can also just do the first or second part. Anyway, if you want more information, check the link: www.stuckincustoms.com/african-photo-adventure/
