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.
