Our Specialist Leaders
As the recipient of multiple World Press Photo awards over the course of her illustrious career, photojournalist Ami Vitale has the requisite experience, expertise and journalistic credentials to help you capture impactful images on safari. Fellow National Geographic photographers Andy Mann and Keith Ladzinski have proven themselves as two of the biggest names in the field of outdoor photography, honing their lenses on extreme sports fanatics, endangered species and untamed landscapes. In years past, big cat expert Steve Winter has held the titles of BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year and BBC Wildlife Photojournalist of the Year, in recognition of his cutting-edge work in some of the world’s most extreme environments, from the depths of the Amazon to the peaks of the Himalayas.
Husband-and-wife team Shannon Wild and Russell MacLaughlin have criss-crossed the globe to document nature at its most primal and evocative, a photographic journey which has seen them appointed to the prestigious RED Collective. Another prolific world traveller is Canon Ambassador Pie Aerts, whose drive to experience the most far-flung and visually stunning corners of our planet is always undertaken with an aim to celebrate wildlife and promote conservation. Canon Canada Ambassador and polar fanatic Chase Teron leads photographic workshops throughout the Arctic, and revels in sharing his enthusiasm for the natural world with his fellow photographers. Last but by no means least, freelance photographer and expedition leader Andrew James is always on hand to lend his expert eye, drawing on years of experience travelling to Africa, Antarctica, the Faroe Islands and everywhere in between.
