“An awe-inspiring and life-changing experience”

This workshop was an awe-inspiring and life-changing experience for me. I will never be the same, nor will I look at animals in the same way again. Thank you, Kathleen, for opening my eyes and my heart to these beautiful creatures.

“Kathleen is genuinely interested that you were able to get the quality shot”

Kathleen is genuinely interested that you were able to get the quality shot you wanted. She reminds everyone what to look for when approaching the animals whether it is their alertness, emotion, or at what angle to achieve the best shot.

“Everything was superb: Kathleen as instructor; environment, roaming animals not caged; wide variety; virtual access.”

This was my 5th visit, each one different. Enjoyed sharing with other serious photographers. Nice to be able to enter park before sunrise. One of my favorite pictures was a lion's mane highlighted by the sunrise behind him. Raised platforms allow photographing animals without bars or fences blocking the view. Owners usually around, much like a family sharing their home. Other photographers very considerate, not "hogging" sites. Kathleen had pre-training session night before, refreshing techniques. Also, thought meeting everyone helped bond us as a group. In all, Out of Africa a wonderful experience whether you are a serious photographer or not.
