Cape Photographic Tours
I offer bespoke one off tours and photographic itineraries as well as a scheduled 8 day cape photographic tour – The Cape Illuminated.
Bespoke Cape Photographic Tours are created specifically for you and your group. Let me know what you would like to see, where you would like to go and how active you would like to be and I will tailor make an itinerary for you.
The scheduled 8 Day Cape Illuminated Tour may be a good platform to build your own itinerary on, although you may also wish to include other regions within Southern Africa.
It is important for me that your photographic tour be as much about relaxing, and being on holiday, as it is about capturing great moments and landscapes. The flowing and flexible nature of my tours, as well as the fact that we generally shoot early and late – for the best light, leaves time in the day for activities and relaxing, so you will have the opportunity to experience as many activities (or restaurants and boutiques) as you wish.
Experience and Equipment – This tour is suitable for guests with any skill level, from beginner to pro. Provisions are also made for non-photographers/spouses/partners throughout the itinerary. Basic equipment I would recommend would be a DSLR or mirrorless camera, a tripod and lenses that offer a range of lengths from wide to telephoto. Lens and camera rental for most systems is available as an added extra on request. I am happy to consult on equipment with clients before the start of the tour.
Schedule and Activity Level – The schedule and level of activity are completely up to you. All itineraries are designed to be as fluid as possible and can in most cases be adjusted en-route to cater for inclement weather and possibly the desire for a rest day once on the road. I aim for you to experience your tour as a kind road-trip, so we stop when we see something we would like to shoot, and adjust our schedule to make each day as memorable as possible. Options for non-photographers (or tired photographers) are built into the itinerary. There is always plenty to do and see if you don’t feel like shooting. Every tour is designed to be a holiday always.
Your Tour Guide and Photo-Pro I am a professional photographer and a registered tour-guide. I have shot just about everything under the sun (and moon). I love capturing landscapes and moments from my own viewpoint, as they unfold, rather than scenes that need manipulating or styling. I am also a very relaxed and easy going guy, with a beard, love the color yellow best and don’t eat apples.
