The following images are from the past week where four rangers and trackers drove a photographic group. This gave us the amazing opportunity to meet and learn from some very experienced photographers and allowed us to share new techniques and ideas with them. Having mutual interests provoked photographic thought and allowed everybody’s creative eye to develop. Ones wildlife photographic skill could also never develop if there weren’t any subjects to photograph. This was made easy by working as a team and the tracker’s incredible predictive nature.
Enjoy this Week in Pictures…
