Hi everyone!

Kenya is easily in the top 5 countries in the world for photographing iconic wildlife!

Join us in the dry season for an unforgettable adventure through Kenya's majestic landscapes and unparalleled wildlife sanctuaries! From the sprawling Savannah of the Amboseli National Park, to the breathtaking views of Mount Kilimanjaro, we're setting off on a journey to capture the heart of Africa's incredible biodiversity.

Africa has been an absolute dream of mine as a photographer for over a decade. And the Aboseli National park is the perfect location for this trip. "Amboseli" comes from a Maasai word meaning "salty dust", and it is one of the best places in Africa to view large herds of elephants up close!

It’s known for its large elephant herds and views of immense Mount Kilimanjaro, across the border in Tanzania.

Observation Hill offers panoramas of the peak and the park’s plains and swamps. Varied wildlife includes giraffes, zebras, cheetahs and hundreds of bird species. 

Capture the wild beasts of the plains that sell well again and again and again.

You will have FOUR world-class photographers at your disposal - guiding and coaching you photographically every step of the way as we explore the plains of Africa together.

Imagine the thrill of traveling through famous national parks, witnessing lions, elephants, girrafe and more! Capture the fierce beauty of predators in action, the stunning Mt Kilimanjaro, and the serene moments of animals in their natural habitats!

Capture timeless photographs that you can show off to friends and family and sell online for the rest of your life!

This workshop is more than just an opportunity to learn about photography, it's also a chance to get your first online store up and make your first photography sales!

I guarantee that you will leave this workshop with your first online shop up and ready to go and many of you will make their first sales while on this workshop!

This is an opportunity like no other. The first in-person workshop of its kind, that not only helps you capture world class images, but helps you sell them too!

The in person insights you’ll gain by being around my team of pro photographers and I that are making a killing selling their art online is a chance that may never come around again. 

In our group, The Thriving Artists (go from Starving Artist to Thriving Artist!) the student body sells $500,000/month or more of their own art and this is a white glove opportunity to learn from the very best, get your questions answered, get your online shop launched, and if you’re already launched how to massively improve your sales in just 7 short days!

Clifton Haley (of Monday Nuts and Bolts fame!) will be there with me and you every step of the way!

Immerse yourself in the vibrant ecosystems, indulge in the beauty of the African bush, and enjoy authentic cuisine with other like-minded photographers!

I am thrilled to be hosting this workshop and can guarantee it will create incredible memories for all participants.

I want each of you to be able to enjoy the natural world to the fullest extent possible, so to ensure an immersive and personalized experience, this workshop will only accommodate 14 seats to ensure premium, personalized attention, care, and coaching.

Much Love, Craig Alexander

General Daily Itinerary

 

We have an elevated safari jeep-like transport vehicle equipped with a fridge, drinks and snacks available all day every day at our convenience, custom-made for this purpose.

*Due to weather patterns, animal migration patterns and daily herd locations, the specific animals we capture will very from day-to-day, but we will be focusing on the BEST selling ones first.

5:30 am - Wake up

6:00 am - Meet up

Meet your fellow students and instructors at the pick-up location in front of the lodge


6:42 am - 11:00 am

There will be some of the best action just before dawn, especially the lions and cheetahs. 

We will drive through the park until around 9am, where we’ll take a break for breakfast for around 30-45 min. 

Breakfast is either a specially prepared Maasai breakfast or a pre-packed lunch, depending on how far out we are. 

We then head back to the lodge, where post dawn we’re most likely to see the larger herbivores like elephants, giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, antelopes etc. 

We get back between 11-12 where we’ll take a quick rest, hop in the pool etc. refresh, then have lunch.

1:00pm - 3:30pm (with breaks in between)

Join us in the Conference Room at the lodge for classroom time with the coaches:
Craig Alexander, Clifton Haley, and our special Safari-specific guest photography coach, Madame Cyrielle Malaval, a native South African and safari veteran with over 20 safaris under her belt.


4:00pm - 6:30pm

We will resume the safari until the sun sets on the Savannah, this is the most active time for lions, cheetahs, honey badgers, hyenas etc.

7:00pm

Dinner with the group, then relaxation. You’ll have a chance to edit your photos of the day some more, hop in the pool if you want, or get an early night in prep for the next day. 

Each day will have its own theme, both on sunrise and sunset safaris - as well as in the classroom where we guarantee you will leave Africa, with your Etsy store open and some of you will even have made your very first sales! (Even if you’ve never sold online before).
