About the event:
You are invited to join the Canon Collective and Iconic Images on your choice of two photo safaris in Botswana & South Africa in November, 2018. Depending on your budget, you may select either or both safaris – the choice is yours!
What makes these photo safaris unique is not just their destinations but the Canon high performance camera equipment you will be able to try out whilst in Africa!
You will have shared access to Canon’s top cameras including the 1DX Mk2
, 5D Mk IV
and 7D Mk II
, as well as a selection of Canon’s top lenses including the EF 200-400mm f4L IS
, EF 500mm f/4 Mk II
, EF 400mm f2.8L IS
, EF 300mm f2.8L IS
, EF 70-200mm f2.8L IS
, and EF 100-400mm f3.5-5.6L IS II
and more. The equipment will be rotated between guests after each shoot to ensure everyone has equal opportunity to try out different cameras and lenses.
You will also fly between the game reserves to give you more time to photograph. Flying in small planes in Africa is a memorable experience in itself.
These two photo safaris provide a special opportunity for you and your friends to book either one of two 7-day safaris or combine the two into a 14-day safari. You will have three professional photographers, who specialise in wildlife and nature photography, to help you at all times. Irrespective of your photography knowledge or experience they will teach you how to capture the best of South Africa’s wildlife in three of its most intimate game reserves.
If ever there was an opportunity to enjoy a safari that is exclusively intimate, then this is it. The game reserves and lodges/camps we have selected are small, client focussed and all are owner/family run. There is a large difference in personal service at these smaller, owner run camps, where many of the guides, drivers and trackers have been working for many years on the property. This means they know every inch of the reserve and how to get you into the best positions for photography.
These are small group safaris as each will have a maximum of 12 participants so that a high level of personalized instruction is available for photographers of all skill levels. In general there are no more than 4 participants per professional photographer. This means we can focus on your individual needs and maximize your photographic opportunities.
