Consider joining Alex Mody and myself for three days and two nights of sunrise, sunset, nighttime photography, and fully-outfitted camping on this remote desert plateau, featuring the world’s most interesting, unique, and otherworldly sandstone formations in October 2016:

The lone figure is one of the great people I’ve ever had the privilege to meet in life, Steve Zigler. When I had a chance to visit a remote region of the Tibetan Himalaya with him, he was constantly enthralled with the magnitude and splendor of the peaks around us. It was for this reason I choose to use him to fulfill an idea that I had, reaching arms outstretched to the glory of the mountains above our camp, in constant wonder of being there.

Due to popular demand we have added a second Namibia Untamed tour for 2016, and Ryan will lead that tour. If you are not familiar with Ryan’s work, then first: shame on you, and second: http://ift.tt/HjSx9r
If you want to visit Namibia, look no further. We were the first company to offer specialized photography tours to Namibia and there is no better organized Namibia tour out there. Also, we are still the only one that offers microlight flights over the famous Namibian sand dunes.
This image was shot on one of those microlight flights, an amazing experience. Microlight airplanes are the best way to take aerial photographs. Better than hot air balloons, as they only take you where the wind blows. Better than airplanes, as they go way too fast, have to stay very high, and you often have to shoot through low quality, scratched windows. And better than helicopters, because of those same scratched plastic windows, and you can only shoot in one direction. From a microlight you can shoot in all directions, also straight down.
What you see here is a gyrocopter, basically a two person helicopter without roof or windows. We used one of those for a few years, but we no longer do. I asked my pilot to fly above them to be able to include the gyro in my photograph for sense of scale. The photographic opportunities are endless when you’re flying over this sea of sand, sculpted by the light.

The great thing about Antarctica is that it’s a dynamic landscape, mainly because of the ice. I’ve been to Antarctica three seasons in a row, often multiple trips per year, and every time the landscape looked different. One day a bay is completely filled with icebergs, the next day it’s all on the open sea. For a photographer it doesn’t get much better than that.
If you would like to experience being on that zodiac yourself, then you’re in luck – we had a cancellation.
The trip date is: 29 November – 9 December 2015.
This trip filled up very quickly when we first opened it, so if Antarctica is on your bucket list, here’s your chance. We will be traveling on a brand new ship with state of the art stabilising technology, so crossing the infamous Drake Passage should be a breeze compared to all the other vessels.
If you’re interested in joining us in a few months time on a landscape and wildlife photography trip of a lifetime, don’t hesitate and send us an email now. If you’d like to have some more information first, please check out my website for more pictures, a tour impression video clip, and a detailed PDF:
Hope to see you there!
