Just north of Kenya lies Ethiopia’s fascinating Omo Valley. Our 10-day Ethiopia photo tour and cultural adventure into the valley is a true kaleidoscope of culture, tradition and terrain. This is a journey into one of Africa’s last unexplored frontiers. Home to some of the most unchanged tribes and people within the civilized world. The Omo Valley is cohabited by a colorful mix of tribes, including the Dorze, Karo, Hamar, Dassanech, Ari, and Mursi.
After Omo we will fly to the north to photograph the Rock-Hewn Churches of Lalibela. The 11 medieval monolithic cave churches of this 13th-century ‘New Jerusalem’ are situated in a mountainous region in the heart of Ethiopia near a traditional village with circular-shaped dwellings. Lalibela is a high place of Ethiopian Christianity, still today a place of pilgrimage and devotion.
This exclusive trip will host a maximum of only 8 guests. A respectful and sustainable formula to guarantee and protect the uniqueness of genuine populations, not contaminated by tourism, where every photographer will have the opportunity to portray authentic places and faces. Building a portfolio full of original images with a strong emotional impact; always with the technical supervision of our photographer leader and an expert local guide. A journey full of many opportunities and experimentation in the field, all while learning the secrets and techniques of photojournalism.
This adventure is designed not only to guide you to the most photogenic locations carefully planned for the best light but to aid you in mentally visualizing a scene before capturing the decisive moment.
Our aim is to raise your awareness and spark your creativity so that you not only go home with images to be proud of but use your new found skills to improve and expand your photographic technique in general. Apart from the technical aspect of learning your camera settings and capabilities, you will learn how to turn an ordinary image into an extraordinary image by using your own creativity.
