iPhoto safaris and tours
Lots of major tourist destinations around the world offer photo safaris and tours but I haven’t (as yet) been able to find one that offers iPhone safaris. How about your destination being the first? We find that iPhoneography is absolutely exploding in popularity. Those interested range from young teenagers to seniors.
These can be organized by businesses, tourism groups,non-profits, city authorities or even private individuals. iPhoto safaris, led by Andy, consist of small groups of people to allow Andy to give individual advice and tips to those attending. They can be stand-alone events or can be combined with exhibitions, book signings or other events. They can also be part of a series.
iPhone safaris can take place at local attractions, aboard pleasure craft, in areas of natural beauty, at historical homes, state parks, local events, botanical gardens, sports events or even at private homes. They provide each guest with the opportunity of seeing places with a new eye (pun – eye = i, sorry) and gather tips and advice to enhance their own photographic skills. Photo safaris are great for people who have been taking photographs with their phones for ages – and for complete beginners.
Of course, each venue can have its own custom-published book which is available during the tour.
There are a great number of photographers with disabilities and the iPhone is a perfect tool for the physically less-abled, or those in a wheelchair, as no bulky equipment is required and an iPhone slips into anyone’s purse or pocket. We are currently working on planning iPhone safaris for photographers with disabilities so would welcome inquiries from interested groups or from attractions and areas that are fully accessible.
Photo safaris in most cities in this country have prices starting at $99, depending on the length of the event.
Oh, and we’ve been asked if we travel to other areas to conduct iPhone safaris – of course! One day, we would like to be invited to run a photo safari in Africa – a real safari photographing lions. Bring it on
