Join me in Africa for an adventure of a lifetime!

A photography workshop for all skill levels

This is gonna be one incredible trip! I’ll tell you a little bit about why I am excited here, and then I’ll let the team give you all the details below.

Namibia is going to be absolutely amazing … I cannot wait! Namibia has some of the most incredible landscapes on the continent, and no doubt you’ll walk away with memories and images that will last a lifetime. And, naturally, I’ll be along with you the whole time. We’re keeping this group extremely small and exclusive, so you’ll have more than enough time with me. Not only will we be out shooting non-stop, but we’ll surely find more than enough time to sit around after the daily adventures and post-process our photos together if you wish.

Excellent Accommodations

This is going to be a pretty swanky event as far as accommodations, food, and all of this sort of thing goes. You can look at a few photos of the places we are staying together below, and you’ll quickly get an idea of the overall experience. It will all be totally safe and more than comfortable. The food, wine and well, everything, will just be incredible! As Buddha said, “It’s better to travel well than to arrive.”

Breathtaking Landscapes

What kind of stuff are we shooting? Awe inspiring landscapes, of course! 🙂 You guys know me. I wanted to make sure our itinerary has us visiting some of the most stunning landscape locations in the area. So you’ll want to bring all your camera gear because it’s Africa and everything is gonna be amazing! I’m only doing three events this year (two in New Zealand and this one in Africa), so I want to make sure it a very special experience, since you only get one shot at life!

Questions? Just Ask!

Our good friend, Neville Jones, has put together a great itinerary and will be with us for the entire trip to ensure it all goes smoothly. Neville is an experienced traveller, guide and talented photographer (the pictures of Namibia on this page are his). You’ll find all of the details below. If you have any questions, big or small, be sure to let us know! 🙂 -Trey

“What surprised me the most was Trey’s teaching methodology in terms of the exploration. It’s not about do step 1, step 2, step 3 now look at the result. It was about experimentation.”

Details! I want Details!

The Adventure is Limited to a Very Small Group

We are keeping this adventure group very small and intimate. We will be staying at 5 different locations in Namibia taking 5 different flights between these locations. This takes a lot of time and coordination so we wanted to keep the group small. You’ll have LOTS of one-on-one time with Trey, plus a small group will simply be more fun! We’ll get to know one another better and create some unforgettable memories together.

Everything is Included

You are a responsible for your flight to/from, Namibia. Once you’re in Windhoek you can relax, we’ll take care of the rest! The Guides, Lodging, Transportation, Food, Drinks and, of course, hands-on Photography and Post-Processing Instruction from me (Trey) are all included. Let us know if you have any special dietary needs or other requests and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.

13 Days of Non-Stop Action!

13 days. 12 nights. 5 locations. 5 flights. This trip is jam-packed with activities. We’ll never run out of cool new things to see, do and photograph. Don’t worry though.

“I believe Trey may be one of the best photographers in the world, but he doesn’t make you feel like he is… he really helps you become a better photographer. I feel that’s probably the biggest shock is just the getting better so quickly…I always…think, “Ah, that’s never going to happen for me, but sure enough, it did.”
