David has been photographing wild places in Africa for more than 20 years originally as a journalist for Getaway magazine and then for a host of other publications including Geo, Sunday Telegraph (UK), Africa Geographic, Travel Africa and many others. He has written and photographed many books and most recently Living Landscapes of Southern Africa, Classic Safari Camps of Africa and five titles in the Africa Geographic Safari in Style series. Through these projects David has developed a deep understanding of the African landscape, the prime photographic spots, the best guides and the lodges that afford flexibility and prime positioning. He loves teaching, and is patient and passionate, and has been running photographic workshops for more than seven years.
The bush is the classroom and it’s up to everyone to learn to look beyond the obvious and create interesting images. David will sometimes give ideas for images but he mostly guides people to develop their own style and confidence. These trips are about you and your images. He knows the lay of the land very well and can plan activities and areas to visit according to your experience but will welcomes ideas and suggestions from the group.
