Whether you are a hobbyist photographer, seasoned photographer or just taken your camera out of the box, our workshops are for anyone who would like to improve their photography. It is imperative to establish exactly your photographic abilities and more importantly where you would like it to take it.
FROM THE HOBBYIST TO THE SEASONED PHOTOGRAPHER
GROUP ORIENTATED SESSIONS
Our workshops are group based and have a practical element to them which we are able to provide in the convenience of our tutorial room in Nelspruit, with the exception of our wildlife and landscape workshop.
LET’S HAVE A COFFE… (OR TWO)
If the group setup is not your style or you would like some alone time with one of our tutors, then a scheduled private one-on-one coaching session might be the answer for you. We can customise photographic workshops around your specific needs.

I had the opportunity to have a quick beginners course. The hour spent was so insightful and informative. They are able to explain everything you need to know, in such simple terms and extra help was provided by a PowerPoint presentation that is shown at the same time. Definitely going back for the next few steps in my new found hobby. Thank you!Tania HattinghThe cherry on top of our safari experience!
Thank you Hilton for explaining to me how to do a firmware update for my camera. Easy to follow instructions. Appreciate it!Helouise MaritzWonderful Experience!
I was in two minds about booking this service while staying at the Makanyi Game Lodge, but so glad I did. I opted for the two days option, to manage costs, although four days is also possible. Hilton (Kotze) is a tremendous and patient teacher. He took time to understand my abilities (limited) and geared his tutoring to reflect this. He was also careful to understand what I wanted from the photographs and how I would use them. An all round brilliant experience with a great bloke.What an Adventure...The wildlife and the big 5 were amazing.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The best time to have a couples or family shoot is during the golden hour, which is around sunset or sunrise.
The photographer will arrive at the lodge at High tea to meet you and the ranger that will be taking you on the drive.
The photographer will join you for the game drive where the game ranger and photographer will decide on the best place to have the shoot. The photographer will capture any images of the wildlife that you see.
Roughly an hour before sunset the ranger will stop at the right place to have a drink and snacks and for you to have the shoot. The shoot will be roughly an hour and a half. We then finish the game drive and head back to the lodge.
One of our options includes a night shoot at the lodge. The photographer will remain at the lodge. After dinner the photographer will have another shoot with you at the lodge and hopefully the stars will be out!
Yes, you will need to organise your own private vehicle with the lodge directly. We are not responsible for organising a vehicle for you. If this is not possible, we suggest you opt for the mini shoot that can be done between breakfast and high tea.
Usually no, but it depends on what type of shoot that you would like.
If you look at our timing FAQ, once you head back to the lodge the photographer will leave. Therefore no accommodation will be necessary. If you would like a night shoot then accommodation will be needed. Your travel agent will be in contact with us and the lodge to organise the accommodation.
It is always tough to promise a certain amount of images that you will receive. We focus on quality over quantity. We always aim to give you a minimum of 50 images.
As we focus on quality over quantity, we also focus on each and every image. We take the time to edit each and every image. We create a story with our images that will take you back to your incredible stay.
We upload all of the images to an online gallery for you to download and share as you please. The images will remain in the gallery for one month for you to download.
