It is easy in the heat of the moment to snap away capturing pictures that could have been so much better. This comprehensive course gives the knowledge you need to be ready and confident to capture those memorable moments.
David gives you his favourite safari photography destinations and why. We look at gear from cameras to beanbags and those essential extras you need to pack.
