As a photographer no matter you are a beginner or professional, it’s always frustrating when your guide, or the people on your safari vehicle, are uninterested in subjects that you would like to photograph.
Wildlife photography requires patience, preparation, dedication and a guide that understands how to get you into the right position for that perfect capture. You also need lots of space and equipment to move in your vehicle. In short – you need to go on a dedicated photographic safari.
If you enjoy wildlife photography, there are a few things that you should consider before making the investment in your next ultimate safari adventure in Tanzania.
It’s important that your guide is dedicated to photography and understands the technical aspects of taking a good wildlife photo. Vehicle positioning, for instance, is essential as it ensures the best angle for you and your camera in any given situation. The guide also needs to be committed to waking up early and staying out late in order to maximize times for great light and movement of wildlife. It’s also essential that the safari vehicle has enough space, as operating bulky equipment in a car full of other guests can get awkward.
Private guided safaris ensure that all these matters are taken care of, allowing you to focus on enjoying the creative aspects of your trip.
