Seminar 8: South Africa Namaqualand and Namib Desert
Photo Experience, Sunday, February 23, 2020

I’ve taken in both South Africa and Namibia in 2014. You will note that much of this is covered in the photoguild newsletter: Volume 50 Issue 1, Jan. 2015. For any photographer who loves the excitement of both desert and wild life as well as the people of these two African countries… it is important to familiarize himself/herself with all that Africa has to offer both visually and historically.
