The River Crossings Series
With Award-Winning Wildlife Photographer
Paul Joynson-Hicks MBE
Daily, short, interactive YouTube films shot in the Serengeti National Park, Tanzania, starting today!
This is a different kind of email in that it does not tell you about a one-off event but a fun, interactive wildlife adventure in the Serengeti which is starting its third season today.
Award-winning professional wildlife photographer and long-time Nikon Owner contributor Paul Joynson-Hicks is part of the group behind the YouTube channel Serengeti Safari One Day at Time and each day he will dose out a helpful Daily Photo Tip and, whether it is about composition or just what to do with your photographs, it is really useful as well as being fun to watch.
After each episode you can ask questions in the YouTube comments which can get answered by Paul Joynson-Hicks or the other guides in the film the next day. If you ever had questions you have wanted to ask about wildlife photography, now is your chance. They are filming a series of eight short films, so get a coffee (or tea) and start watching Episode One of the Kogatende Series – Swimming Lessons for Wildebeest here:
About Serengeti Safari One Day at Time
Serengeti Safari One Day at Time is a group of wildlife enthusiasts who had no work due to the global lockdown but were able to get out to the Serengeti and do some filming. So they decided to push boundaries and be creative and to post, every day for about 10 days each month, a short, fun, irreverent wildlife TV show to give you some idea of what it is like on safari and photographing wildlife.
The group is made up of Paul Joynson-Hicks as well as two of Tanzania’s leading safari guides and wildlife experts, Jombi Kivuyo and Richard Knocker and the filmmaker Eliza Powell, who is director, camera and editor all in one and who was not panicked at the thought of having to create an eight-minute film every day for 10 days and then again the following month.
The idea is one of an interactive TV show, which means they would love to hear from you. So please send your questions about wildlife photography, wildlife or just what it is like being on a safari or a photo safari; anything you have on your mind and they will try and get to it in their “After Episode” section every day. If you enjoy it please forward it to friends, relatives, work colleagues, schools, clubs, in short, anyone who might enjoy the latest in Wildlife TV Entertainment and Information. And don’t forget to SUBSCRIBE to their Youtube Channel so they can let you know as soon as they post each short and action-packed episode.
