Event kicks off with a Wednesday evening welcome (Oct 16) and will continue through Friday morning (Oct 25) for a 10 day Trap Camera adventure.
Venue: We are going to Gorongosa National Park, Mozambique !! Our goal was to get some of the most AMAZING minds in Trap Camera photography together in an amazingly biodiverse place to show people how to get cool shots. We also wanted a place where we had a great shot of everyone walking away with some killer shots. To get an idea of the amazing diversity you can check out the Gorongosa website or you can check out some of Jen Guyton’s or Piotr Naskrecki’s blogs. The diversity is some of the best on Earth after a rigorous conservation effort over the past decades.
Price includes: All scheduled course activities, lodging, meals, and transportation to/from the airport in Beira, Mozambique. It DOES include a flight from Beira and rented vehicles to give us flexibility for the best trap camera locations.
Price does not include: drinks/snacks from the bar, laundry service, tours taken during the unscheduled day and anything else not listed as part of the formal workshop.
If you wish to bring a non-participating friend or spouse, they are welcome to stay at the lodge during the course pending availability. Contact Kendra (firstname.lastname@example.org) for details.
Ideally, plan on bringing a couple of camera bodies and lenses with you for this workshop. You will go out and set up one of your cameras (if you would like) 4 times, once with each group of instructors. If you choose to not bring any camera and want to just come and learn that is fine too. We will make every effort to water proof your camera when they are in the field but because this is nature there can be no guarantees an elephant does not decide to play soccer with your camera, or a vervet monkey decides to play with your camera. There is a chance of your camera getting destroyed when it is in the field. We recommend any DSLR camera you have, but you must accept the risk of potential loss. We also would like you to bring any remote triggers (Cognisys, Trail Master, etc…) accompanying cables, 2-3 flashes that can be used in the field with you. Bring both wide angle and macro lenses with you.
