Wildlife Photography Blog – iCapture Photo Safaris at Indlovu

 WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY 

What a stunning moment in wildlife photography…. As the year crawls to and end, we think this lovely picture by Anna-Mart Kruger simply sums up how many of us feel – at times hanging on for dear life!  The image was captured from one of our sunken photography hides at Indlovu.

Anna-Mart Kruger and Helene Wigget from iCapture Photo Safaris visited Indlovu River Lodge this week.  This great team are presenting at the annual Wild Shots Symposium in Cape Town tomorrow.  This is the biggest Photography Symposium in Africa!   Their contribution is titled:  “Starting out, turning our hobby into a business.”

The two of them are successfully earning a living from their hobby, which is why they have something to say when it comes to wildlife photography and turning it into a business.  Their accomplishments include having published a large number of articles and several front page magazine images to date. They do regular contributions for Africa Geographic, Discovery Wildlife, and Wildlife Magazine.  They have also done commercial work for a great number of prestigious companies and also give courses and photography workshops in their spare time, which has gained great popularity.

A few highlights in their wildlife photography careers include:

  • Featured in the “Outdoor Photographer of the Year 2016” coffee table book.
