This week for me has been one of the most incredible weeks in my guiding career. I had the privilege of driving a private photographic safari with guest Shanel Cameron and Private Photographic host Hilton Kotze, from Africa Direct. Photography has now become more than a hobby for me and the amount of knowledge I have gained from these past 7 days has been immense. Long days in the bush, much patience, photographic tips, knowledge, settings, exposures, flashes, shutter speeds, apertures, etc, etc, etc. The list is long and the time was plentiful. I will forever be indebted to these 2 people and the time we spent together. This is a week in pictures to highlight some of the great things we saw and managed to capture. Enjoy this week in Pictures!!! Mike
