Before Your Safari

 

Whether you're joining me on safari, or travelling independently, sometimes a little extra time tailored to your particular photographic needs, is just the thing to get your confidence flying high before you head into the wild.  

 

If you're just starting out in photography or videography, or have a particular issue you'd like troubleshooting, I recommend a day of 1-2-1 tuition before your group safari starts.  

This can either be an additional day in the destination you are visiting, or - if you live in the UK - a day closer to home before you leave.

What are the benefits?

 

Improve specific safari photography techniques including:

  • compelling portraiture

  • capturing fast action

  • birds in flight

  • low light photography

  • ensure your shots are sharp

  • creative inspiration

So you'll be ready to handle all of the tricky shooting conditions you'll find on safari!

...Or After Your Safari...

 

Why not stay on after your group safari with me ends, to pursue a personal project?

Bespoke mentoring and photography or videography tuition will take you to the next level. 

Bookable before or after your group safari, from a single extra day to a full extra week.

Designed specifically to your interests and level of experience.

What My Clients Say

1-2-1 photography Tuition: Get Set For Safari

"Dear Trai,  I wanted to say thank you so much for one of the highlights of our safari (when) you came with me and taught me how to use my Sony A6000.  What I learned in those few hours made all the difference in my photos ... Your knowledge, patience and talent was invaluable. You are impressive and wonderful and i can't thank you enough.

What Our Clients Say

 

1-2-1 Photography Tuition: UK

"I can not recommend Trai highly enough. Her knowledge of wildlife and love for nature, when added to her skills as a photographer and a teacher, provide a day that is not only great fun but also a wonderful learning experience.

 

Trai was enormously helpful in showing me how to get the best from my camera, how to read the situation to get in the right place to shoot the best pictures, how to use the theories of composition to get shots that really catch the eye and also comparing her results with mine, so I could see what I should be aiming for.

 

Looking at my results from the day, my photographs are infinitely better than anything I have taken before. Trai answered all my questions and has taught me more in a day than I had learned in the three years since buying my first DSLR. I can not recommend her highly enough!"

 

Andrew Davison OBE,

Head of Corporate Law, Muckle LLP

"I have spent two one-to-one sessions with Trai, one in Dumfries and Galloway and the other in Lincolnshire. Both were fantastic experiences, taking my photography to a new level. Trai is a brilliant tutor, always ready to share her extensive experience of wildlife photography, encouraging you to improve and giving you tips on how to do so.

 

Above all, Trai is a real pleasure to spend time with; nothing is too much trouble and a relaxed approach to every shoot is guaranteed, but behind it all, you know everything has been thoroughly researched and planned. You couldn't ask for more from any photographic safari company; Trai's certainly stands out in a crowded field.

 

I will certainly be joining her for more sessions - and possibly one of her big safari trips - in the future."

1-2-1 Videography Tuition: UK

 

“A huge thank you Trai for a wonderful and fun workshop. 

You have encouraged me to use my existing creativity to create moving imagery which, together with new skills learnt from you, have excited me to challenge myself and enter the world of videography. 

I always enjoy learning something new and this workshop has surpassed my expectations.  

Can't wait for part 2.  You have made learning fun!”
