As a professional photographer, I am passionate about travel, experiencing different cultures and getting to know and improve the lives of the people I meet along the way!
Philanthropy is a huge part of our tours as we together, will endeavor to change the lives of girls in third world countries by teaching them photography, starting with Uganda, my homeland.
On most travel and/or photo-tour’s, you will be taken to see the sights, maybe improve your photography and then come home and resume your life.
On our tours, not only will you be enriched with in-the-field photo-training, but you will come back with amazing photographs, stories to tell and the knowledge you helped to change a girls’ life forever.
This amazing tour to Uganda is designed for amateur to intermediate photographers and is perfect for singles or couples!
Join us in Uganda for a photo-tour you will never forget. As a group, we will travel from Toronto to Uganda, where you will experience thrilling adventures, such as Gorilla & Chimpanzee Trekking in the wild at Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Kibale National Forest; Safari’s in Murchison Falls & Queen Elizabeth Park; Hiking in Rwenzori Mountains, Bird Watching from the river boat along the Kazinga Channel; opportunities to improve your photography skills and of course the training of the girls in photography.
It's difficult to sum up the beauty and awe you will encounter traveling with us to Uganda
