Exclusive Namibia Photo Tour with Brendan van Son
It’s with great excitement that I announcement my Namibia Photography tour! Namibia is easily one of my top 3 favourite countries for travel and just a brilliant place to be a photographer. This exclusive trip will take us to some of the most photogenic places in the country and showcase some of the world’s most stunning sights. Locations like Sossusvlei, and Etosha National Park are all on the schedule. Of all the trips I run, this might be the one I’m most looking forward to.
Moreover, this is an “exclusive” trip meaning that there are only 4 spaces available for participants.
What is an Exclusive Trip?
Essentially, these trips are going to be as close to living your life in my shoes as possible. You’re essentially going to go through every day living life as a travel photographer. With just 4 participants, you’ll have lots of space to shoot, edit, work, and learn from me. Moreover, unlike some of the bigger photo tours, there will be no chance of feeling like you’re in a marauding group of tripods. And there will certainly not be anyone getting in your way.
We’ll be travelling in an 8-seater van so there will be lots of space to spread out with your gear and shoot while on safari.
