Today I am writing a post about good friend, photographer, safari leader and all around amazing photographer Grant Atkinson. Gosh, I don’t know where to begin about Grant, but I guess it should start when Grant and I started working together back in 2009. Grant has been in the safari business for quite a while, and Grant and I began co-leading safaris in Botswana in 2009. Grant has an extraordinary grasp on technology, especially with Canon camera equipment, and has taught me so much about wildlife behavior as a result of his own experiences in the bush.
Grant used to work for Wilderness Safaris as a specialist guide, and near the end of his employment with Wilderness Safaris he operated out of Savuti Bush Camp as a permanent guide. Grant is now an independent guide and can be found all around the African continent, usually behind a big, white lens. You can see more of Grant and his amazing photographs on his own web site at www.grantatkinson.com.
Grant and I have many safaris together in 2014, and he is also leading a few safaris on his own:
- Big Cats of the Masai Mara - January 18-26, 2014 (This is the BEST time of the year if you are interested in photographing cheetah chases)
- Small Group Luxury Botswana Photo Safari - April 23 - May 2, 2014
- Luxury Great Migration Photo Safari - September 4-12, 2014
- Botswana, The Premier Photo Safari - November 3-22, 2014
Please come join us out in the African bush next year for some exciting photographic opportunities, some good laughs and a trip of a lifetime. In the meantime, here are just a few of Grant’s images:
