We’re glad to have back as a guest on the show travel photographer extraordinaire Ken Kaminesky.
Ken Kaminesky is a veteran commercial travel photographer, Fujifilm Global Ambassador, writer, consultant, and entrepreneur with over twenty years of experience in the photography industry. His work has been featured worldwide in numerous commercial and editorial publications, including the New York Times and on the cover of National Geographic. His passion for travel and the incredible landscapes and people he encounters along the way are the inspiration for his popular blog, and the other publications he writes for.
Throughout his travels, Ken seeks to capture images and stories that will inspire and motivate people to step out their front door and embrace adventure. As one of the founders and tour leaders at Discovery Photo Tours, he gets the chance to share his love for travel and photography with avid photo enthusiasts from all over the world. Savouring art, food, history, and culture with tour groups in places like Africa, Jordan, Italy, and Iceland is one of the most rewarding aspects of his work.
His favourite place in the world is always his next destination. He believes that each place has a unique story that will inspire others, which he aims to capture in his images.
Ken was previously our guest on episode TTIM 56 – The Business Of Photography with Ken Kaminesky. Back then, our conversation was mostly about the business side of travel photography. This time, it was about more adventurous and romantic topics, including African wildlife and safaris.
Last year Ken went on a scouting trip to Tanzania. That trip resulted in his company, Discovery Photo Tours, offering a VIP photographic safari experience this coming August and September. You might want to check that out, if you are ever thought of being in the middle of one of the most exciting wildlife spectacles in the world: the Great Migration that every year compels millions of wildebeest and zebra to traverse the plains of the Serengeti, crossing the border from Tanzania into Kenya.
We talked with Ken about his memories of this experience and we picked his brains for tips on getting the most of such an experience, for choice of equipment to camera settings.
