2023 Trip – ANCIENT CULTURES AND ETHNIC GROUPS OF NORTHERN TANZANIA Mount Hanang, Mbulu, North Central Tanzania, Lake Eyasi with Tarangire National Park
With tribal peoples photography is different.
A very good local guide is necessary but here the precedent of paying villages and/or individuals is almost universal. This was something the tour companies seem to have instigated decades ago when tourism was in its infancy. We always try to give to the village instead of the 'person' because it is less discriminating, and we get our local
guides to deal with payment to take pressure off "photographers'.
We are sensitive to the impacts that tourism can cause, hence, we try to make visits sustainable and avoid promoting zooification'. It is all a delicate balance and the local guides are often best in deciding which strategy to adopt.
In some cases we might need to wander around the village first without a camera just to become a familiar sight. It is interpersonal skills, which make the moment count. And in that moment we want to capture light colour, emotion, insight, character and spirit.
We try to shoot in the golden hours or at least where there is shade from the intense African sun. In the right light, at the right time the ordinary becomes extraordinary and that is something to strive for.
