A step-by-step Online Training Course

by Claudia & Wynand du Plessis

Hello, we are Claudia & Wynand du Plessis, passionate nature photographers that specialized on Namibia’s grand wildernesses. We have worked as professional photographers, authors, publishers & wildlife ecologists in Namibia for over 30 years.


We realized that many photographers visiting Namibia have many questions about the best camera equipment, camera settings, travel times, photo hot spots, wildlife behavior and much more, that we have answers to.

This is why we created this course ‘Take Better Photos In Namibia’. We tell you everything you need to know … and a bit more … about the secrets to nature photography in Namibia, so that you arrive well prepared in Namibia and can ‘shoot’ your dream images from day one, without wasting time and money figuring everything out by yourself.

Whether you’re a first time visitor or a repeat traveller to Namibia and you itch to feel the magic of its wilderness & capture it in awesome images, this course is for you. Travelling to Namibia in itself requires a considerable investment of time & money. You wouldn’t want to waste either and return with only ordinary (or boring) photographs, just because you unknowingly missed great opportunities because you didn’t know when & where to find them! 

With our course 'Take Better Photos In Namibia' you'll be best prepared to have an amazing wilderness experience in Namibia & bring home unforgettable images, that’ll fill your heart with joy, make you proud & stay with you forever as priceless memories.
