African Safaris

Most photographers dream of going on a African Safari, while few get the tremendous opportunity. This May I get the amazing opportunity to go take pictures in Namibia. But this isn’t my first time, for me this is a second chance. In the summer of 2010 I visited the beautiful country of Namibia with Austin-Lehman Adventures and it quickly became my favorite destination. But I had one regret, that I was unable to capture the truly magnificent sights. I was armed with a 10 year old dSLR, with fewer megapixels than my phone’s camera and one telephoto lens. The trip wasn’t a total photographic loss however, I did come home with 20 or 30 pretty good shots.

Fast forward two years, after a college class on photography and more hours spent reading photo blogs than my college textbooks; I am ready for my second chance. This time my bags are packed with more photo gear than clothes. As the clock counts down to my departure date I struggle to contain my excitement for my first real trip as a photographer.
