THE ECO-ACTIVE STUDIO
ACTIVE TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY - WITH BIKE & SADDLE
I have been into cycling, running, and hiking for as long as I can remember. Tons of fun-runs and heaps of hikes with family and friends, as well as many many adventures by bicycle. With the awesome relationship I have with the outdoors and physical activity - and together with my love of photography - It feels almost natural that I team up with Africa's leading Eco-Active travel company Bike & Saddle.
As Bike & Saddle's resident professional photographer, I assist in guiding their guests through the various technicalities of good photography, and then take them even further, from theory to practice, joining on tour and providing exclusive hands-on assistance. It's tourism meets practical photo-workshop. And it's a whole lot of fun.
Travel + Photography
The Bike & Saddle Eco-Active Studio is available to Bike & Saddle guests (essentially people traveling to Southern Africa keen on active and interactive Eco-friendly tours) who want to not only see the sights but also learn more about photography and how to take better photos; and it's available to guests with any level of photographic experience, with equipment ranging from their iPhone's to DSLR's and everything in between.
Are Non-Photographers Welcome?
Together with Bike and Saddle I have designed the practical and theoretical tuition into several trips which accommodate non-photographers and complete novices. Practical and fun, these are ideal for couples and families looking to learn how to capture that perfect shot with whichever camera they choose to travel with. In essence, I’ll teach you the basics of photography while you're on tour, and you will be taking beautiful shots in no time!
What kinds of Tours are Available?
Bike & Saddle offers several tours in and around South Africa's Western Cape province, and as far afield as Mozambique, Kenya, and Zimbabwe. The Eco-Active studio can be either an add-on onto any of the existing tours, or as a standalone offering. BIke & Saddle not only provides guests with the option of workshops and tailored private tuition on the tours (as part of the trip) but also the possibility of tutoring prior to the trip departure date - so all lessons are carried out before and not during the tour.
As I'm sure you've noticed, one of the best things about Bike & Saddle is that you have the ability to tailor and customize your trips. Photography lessons before, during, or before and during your tour? It's totally up to you!
The Bike & Saddle team is both flexible and professional.
