Wildlife and Travel Photojournalism

Upgrade from an enthusiastic amateur photographer to an aspiring professional. Learn how to make money from Wildlife and Travel photography whilst experiencing incredible photographic platforms in Africa

Wildlife & Travel Photojournalism Training Program

Africa Media’s wildlife and travel photojournalism program is a experiential learning safari that guides aspiring photojournalistsinoto the heart of wild Africa. At its core, the program aims to develop a new generation (of all ages) of professional wildlife photojournalists capable of traveling the world and capturing images and telling photographic stories that captivate and engage audiences.

The program pairs students with some of Africa’s top professional photojournalists who will act as both your guides and tutors, sharing their industry knowledge and photographic skills with you as you explore the incredible wild places and photographic platforms so unique to Africa.

Over the 14 or 28 days program, participants will journey to over 10 different photographic platforms that include wildlife safaris, animal sanctuaries, and some of the country’s top ecotourism expeditions, such as great white shark cage diving. On each expedition, students will focus on different aspects of photojournalism, including the advanced photographic techniques that are guaranteed to capture the essence and story of the subjects you are documenting.

In addition to the incredible photographic safari, students will also be coached on succeeding in the industry of wildlife and travel photojournalism as a professional. During interactive lectures and practical workshops, students will delve into the world of becoming a professional photojournalist, including identifying and researching great stories, understanding and capitalising from a diverse range of revenue streams, and building and maintaining a professional network that will open the doors of the world to you.

Amazing experience!

I have enjoyed a lot my time in South Africa, and learnt so much! I did not have so many expectations since I didn't really know how to use a camera before but in the end I am really proud of what I have achieved, and I can say I am really satisfied about my path. Special mention to my teacher Frikkie, who is the best teacher you can have. He taught us also a lot of useful tricks, and that is why I would recommend this course also to non-beginnersread more

Trey Boyen
Best program ever

I learned so much from Frikkie and all the other instructors in how to improve my photos and tell stories with them. Everyone at the guest house got along so well, and I could tell all the instructors and administrators really knew what they were doing. That and Janine is one of the best cooks in South Africa. This trip was one of the best choices I’ve ever made.

Internship in wildlife and travel photography

I really didn't know what to expect by such an incredible program presentation. When I first arrived at the house I had a warm welcoming by group and staff, the place was so beautifully immersed in the nature of this little and quite town. The program was absolutely outstanding. I really loved the thing that you are able to live the real African lifestyle since you're not living in a hotel. You get to experience the real culture of this vibrantread more

I experienced everything under the African sun

The beginning of my journey, flying solo to Mossel Bay from Australia, was nerve-wrecking to say the least. Luckily, from the moment I touched down in Africa, I knew I was set for an amazing month. We experienced everything under the African sun at Africa Media. The Wildlife and Travel photography internship not only exposed me to Africa’s amazing Big 5, Great White sharks, walking with elephants and playing with Cheetahs, I was also able to expand myread more
