Traditionally photographic safaris have been highly popular internationally for both professional and amateur photographers alike. However, times have changed and an exciting gap in the market has been revealed primarily as a result of advances in digital photographic camera technology with the inclusion of a video function on many new DSLRs. Greatly enhanced quality of consumer video technology in smaller handheld camcorders and the improved accessibility of High Definition along with the explosion in popularity of film in the online social media market including YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook and Twitter.
Suitcase Media and Productions’ DSLR and GoPro Safari Workshop aims to utilise this gap in the market by providing a more inclusive ‘media’ safari workshop as opposed to the more traditional photographic safari!
