New African photo safaris with renowned fine art photographer Klaus Tiedge
Bespoke tour operator Opulent Living Travel is now offering a series of photographic safaris to Namibia, Kenya and Zimbabwe led by Klaus Tiedge, one of the world’s leading fine art wildlife photographers.
The trips are aimed at photographers of all skill levels and discerning travelers who fancy combining the thrill of an African safari with their passion for photography for a memorable and satisfying photographic safari adventure.
The trips will take place between October 2016 and April 2017. Small intimate groups of like-minded guests will join Klaus Tiedge on personalized adventures designed to reveal abundant wildlife and staggeringly diverse ecosystems, from the coastal desert to soaring red dunes and austere gorges in entrancing Namibia to the spectacular Victoria Falls, one of the greatest attractions in Africa. Photograph wildlife in Kenya’s Masai Mara as it bursts to life during brief summer rains: lush grasses lure throngs of wildebeest, springbok, gemsbok and other prey, while the region’s legendary black-maned lion, cheetah and other predators follow in close pursuit. Participants will savor ample opportunities to capture images of Africa’s legendary animals in action whilst learning insights, skills and tricks of the trade from the master.
25 years’ experience at the forefront of his profession has given Klaus impeccable photographic credentials. Klaus’ initial career as a commercials and fashion photographer saw him shooting in many locations around the world, including New York, London, New Delhi, Tokyo and Sao Paulo. After moving to Cape Town in 2001, he started pursuing his passion for fine art photography and has been capturing the beauty and diversity of the African continent on his extensive travels throughout the African continent since. Embracing the modern digital darkroom, his distinct style traverses the boundaries between painting and photography. Klaus’ stunning work can be found in some of the world’s finest galleries, including the Marla Kennedy Gallery in New York, the Photographers Gallery in Los Angeles and Saatchi Art online.
Guests stay in stunning, remote luxury camps carefully selected by OLT’s knowledgeable team. Charter flights (rather than long drives over rough dirt roads) to safari locations ensure that guests spend more time taking photos on safari, rather than in tiring transit.
