Ethiopia Photography Tour

ethiopia1 ethiopia2 ethiopia3 ethiopia7 ethiopia8

The east African country of Ethiopia, located on the ancient continent's horn, is becoming an exciting new destination for photographers. Join me in visiting this country with our cameras.

As a professional photographer who specialises in travel, I'll explain the creative techniques required to capture beautiful images of the rustic architecture, extreme landscapes and spectacular waterfalls, lively marketplaces and unique wildlife.

We'll immerse ourselves within the culture and master the challenging environments found in Orthodox Christian monasteries and churches.

I'll advise on camera fundamentals and elaborate on what's necessary to capture the photos you want.


Recently Canon Collective has joined me in supporting this once in a lifetime photographic adventure to Ethiopia!

A dedicated Canon Collective Ambassador will join us to share their knowledge and expertise in helping you perfect your skills, no matter what your level.

And as an added bonus, the Canon Collective Ambassador will bring along some of Canon’s latest equipment for you to try during the tour. You’ll learn how the equipment works and have the chance to take it for a test-run as you capture you own Ethiopian photographs.

Canon Collective brings years of experience in providing photography assistance and equipment, plus a strong focus on the overall enhancement of the photographic experience, around the world. The organisation is an inspired group whose mission is to help you do more with your photography than you ever thought possible.

Highlights of the journey include:

  • The lively capital Addis Ababa
  • Bahar Dar, including the Blue Nile falls and ancient monasteries on Lake Tana
  • Lalibela's rock-hewn churches
  • Gelada baboons near Gondar
  • Simien Mountains & Gondar Castle
  • The unique southern tribes of the Omo Valley

Accessing remote destinations in both the north and south of the country, the tour often flies by aircraft so there's more time to take photos that have impact.

The tour is open to photography enthusiasts with or without experience, and all photos will be critiqued.

This 17-day, 16-night journey is a great way to gain professional insights into travel photography while sharing a sense of adventure with like-minded enthusiasts. Take away the knowledge and experience that can be applied anywhere in the world.

Partners and friends are also invited and activities related to other interests will be organised.
