As photographers, we are all Hunters of Light.

The Hunters of Light was started to motivate and inspire photographers during the pandemic. During this time we met and interviewed fantastically creative people and created a huge amount of content for those who joined the group. It was all about nurturing people and supporting them as they grew as photographers.

The message from the group came through loud and clear – so many people were wanting to improve their photography in a supportive and non-judgemental environment.

We have decided to combine our skills with other talented photographers to offer expert instruction and a very hands on approach at the same time as providing photographers access to amazing experiences in a vast array of locations.

With a variety of experts in their field to provide workshops across a wide range of areas such as basic camera skills to editing and advanced lighting and genres like landscapes, bird and wildlife, portraits and loads more.

And all of this in places like Botswana, Iceland, Madagascar, Namibia, Norway as well as out own amazing country, South Africa.
