A step-by-step Online Training Course

by Claudia & Wynand du Plessis


 Imagine returning from your Namibia trip with the best images you've ever taken in nature? Feeling exhilarated about the extraordinary experiences you've had in Namibia's grand wilderness?

This is our vision for YOU after you've taken our online photography course TAKE BETTER PHOTOS IN NAMIBIA in preparation for your Namibia visit.

Taking  stunning images in the wild is no coincidence. It's also more than just selecting the right camera settings. It's knowing the most photogenic spots and working creatively with Namibia's light. It's understanding the wildlife's habits and anticipating the right moments. It's choosing interesting perspectives and composing your images creatively.


We focus on these topics in our TAKE BETTER PHOTOS IN NAMIBIA online course so that you arrive in Namibia prepared with insider knowledge, photo know-how, wildlife behavior understanding and unbridled enthusiasm about the dream images you're going to take. 

If this sounds exciting to YOU, we'd love to welcome you inside our TAKE BETTER PHOTOS IN NAMIBIA online course.


We are Namibia nature photographers, ecologists and wildlife enthusiasts. We've lived, traveled and photographed in Namibia for more than 24 years and undertook hundreds of photo trips to (almost) every corner of the country. As ecologists we spent 13 years in the Etosha National Park, studying the Park's ecology including wildlife behavior and lion population dynamics. Every free minute we spent out in the wild, on a quest to experience unique wildlife behavior and capture it in beautiful photographs. This mission has led to more than 100 000 images, of which we've published our best on postcards, calendars, an Etosha book and a series of Namibia travel guides.
