This photo safari is led by myself and my husband, Mark A Fernley. The two of us have been traveling Africa for years in search of the best wildlife photography destinations, and we are happy to share Amboseli National Park the Maasai Mara with our guests. With both of us by your side, we offer our professional assistance throughout the safari. 

Our job is to help you obtain those once-in-a-lifetime, award-winning photographs that you see online or in magazines. From helping you get the shot while out on safari, to post processing and editing techniques back at the lodge, we are here for you.

Equipment to Bring

CAMERA BODY:

  • Guests are encouraged to bring a camera body with a minimum of 24-megapixels to guarantee the best results while on safari. This can be mirrorless or a DSLR, as myself and Mark are experienced with both and will be able to offer assistance whenever need be.

  • A second camera body is always a great consideration, however, this is not mandatory. This can be used as a backup, or you can keep a second lens attached and switch back and forth between cameras.

LENSES:

  • A telephoto lens with a reach of at least 500 mm

    • This can be a fixed/prime lens or a zoom lens

  • If you intend to bring a fixed/prime lens of 500 mm or more, you will also need a closer range lens

    • A 100 - 400 mm or similar is a great option, as this will allow you to get shots of wildlife that comes closer to the vehicle

  • If you are interested in taking landscape photographs during the trip, we recommend a wide angle lens that ranges anywhere between 12 mm - 105 mm. This can be used for landscapes, astro-photography, close range wildlife, and congregations of wildlife.
