My photo tour to Ethiopia was simply phenomenal! I enjoyed every moment of it! If only I could press restart and relive it all again.
Dale was really a great guide. I could not have asked for more in someone taking our group to such ends of the earth. He was very knowledgeable and hands-on in making sure EVERYONE had a great experience and that we each made the types of pictures we were after. I can honestly say; his guidance sent my photography to new levels. I’m such a better photographer now. Even the feedback he delivered helped raise my game and the results are proof of his commitment to excellence. I would photograph a subject and he would be over my shoulder looking at my camera settings and my images. He would offer to rethink the image or adjust the light. And instantly the picture would become better. He also challenged me to think about new angles and to play around with composition. I’m so thankful for him. I really am! I not only became a better photographer under him, but I made a friend in Dale. I’ll never forget this experience or him. As I told Dale, coming to Africa this way was a dream come true. He took my dream and exploded it. He made my entire experience better than I could have ever dreamed for myself.
I can’t wait to show off my work to my friends, family, co-workers, and the world. I have tons and tons of brilliant shots. I think I’ll take a few of the best and enter contests and have them printed. After posting just 3 photos from my trip, I’ve got two inquiries about purchasing prints. That’s never happened before and I’m thrilled to see what will come next!
