South Luangwa Emerald Season:
A magical time & place
For wildlife Photographers

Led by acclaimed photographer, Isak Pretorius, this symposium is specifically designed to offer the most affordable way to experience a photo symposium to one of Africa’s top National Parks in Isak’s favourite season. You will have the chance to learn the techniques to create your own stunning portfolio of wildlife photographs by having a professional photographer close at hand, both on the two game drives a day, and the classroom style presentations that will be conducted between the game drives. Photographers of any level are welcome, whether you are picking up a camera for the first time, or if you are already an expert photographer. Isak will help you take your photography to the next level.

We had a fabulous trip. The birds and animals were amazing. The opportunities for photography were beyond expectations. I am hoping that my photos do it justice. The instructor was extremely patient.
