New crisis-friendly Tanzania Tour

When we went to an ATM last week, and it asked us to borrow twenty Dollars, we knew that we had to make some serious adjustments to our Tanzania Deluxe photo trip. ;-)
So we changed the extravagant luxury safari palaces to more earthly accommodations, we moved from the Grumeti Reserves to the famous Serengeti, we changed the name of the trip to Wonders of Tanzania, and after some wild credit crunch negotiations with our African agents we managed to get better deals. The result is that we now have a very competitively priced safari to the world renowned Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti for almost half the original price, and cheaper than most other photography tour operators. Please check out the photo trips page for more information. If you would like to join us on this trip, don't hesitate - at this price, we expect it to fill quickly!

Only a few spots left for Namibia and Finland

Namibia Untamed & Wild Brown Bears 2009 - If you're interested in joining us to Namibia or Finland, don't hesitate any longer...only a few spots are left on both trips and time is running out!

If you like shooting landscapes, than Namibia is very hard to beat; fairy-tale like quivertrees, a sand covered ghost town, the highest red sand dunes in the world, and the surreal scenery at Deadvlei - your camera will be working overtime! We were one of the first companies to offer specialized photographic tours to this beautiful country and we are still as passionate about it as after our first visit. And even though other companies have since started to offer similar tours, we are considerably cheaper than most and we are still the only one that offers microlight flights over the Sossusvlei dunes.

For bear lovers, our Finland photo trip offers the best possibilities in Europe to photograph these impressive animals in their natural habitat. You are guaranteed to return with awesome bear shots!
Both trips are open to participants of all experience levels. Visit the Photo Trips pages on our website for more information about these trips, and to see some pictures and video clips.

Marsel wins First Prize in NPN Awards

We are proud to announce that for the second time in three years Marsel has won First Prize in the Nature Photographers Network Editor's Pick Awards. His image of an African lion drinking at a waterhole was chosen as the winner of the Wildlife category.

Marsel is honored to have his photography so widely acclaimed by such a talented group of fellow nature photographers. This year he had five photos recommended over three different galleries, a new NPN record! The image was shot in South Africa with a radio controlled remote triggering system.

And as if this weren't enough, two other shots were Highly Commended in the Naturescapes Images of the Year Awards. His popular chameleon shot was chosen as the runner up in the Wildlife category, and his sunday afternoon Photoshop experiment "Symmetree" (pun intended) was succesful in the Digital Creations category.

Fine art prints of each of these images are now available through our website.
