Being a photographer, you love visiting new places, meeting new people, exploring new cultures and are excited about being with a group of people who have the same passions as you do. But you don’t just want to travel to see – you want to travel to experience – you want to improve your photography in a workshop setting. On our photo-tour, you will learn how to observe and read light, how to take your camera off of the auto setting, and how to take photos that will inspire meaningful discussion. The photos you take will be a life-long reminder of the amazing experience you had in Uganda. Our group tours are for amateur or enthusiast photographers, aged 35-65, and will be small and intimate. Space is limited to only 7 photographers.
What Makes Us Different
Unlike some other photo-tours, we have a philanthropic angle to ours. Every year when we operate our photo-tour to Uganda, we carve out 3 days to teach young women studying journalism in Uganda photography and business skills, through our not-for-profit side, Cameras For Girls. We as a group teach photography to young women so that they can find employment in the male-dominated journalism sector. When participants learn photography, it not only helps them find employment, but it also alleviates poverty, strengthens family and community, and changes the participant’s world.
Each day, with our itinerary, you will do just that – you will get hands-on learning while trekking gorillas, visiting two safaris and meeting people in the community.
