Led by Looking Glass’ Jen Waicukauski and Nikon Ambassador Kristi Odom, this 10-day workshop will take you on a journey through Murchison Falls, Kibale Forest National Park, and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest. These are places where nature is at its most raw and magnificent, and where you will have the chance to capture the essence of Africa's wildlife and landscapes through your lens.
Imagine standing at the edge of Murchison Falls, feeling the mist on your face as the Nile River roars past you. Picture yourself gazing upon the rare tree-climbing lions as they bask in the savannah sun or locking eyes with the endangered mountain gorillas as they roam the verdant mountains. These are just some of the experiences that await you in Uganda.
Our workshop is designed for all levels of photographers, from beginners to advanced. Jen and Kristi are dedicated to teaching you the skills and tools you need to capture stunning photographs that you’ll be excited to share with the world. They will guide you through every step of the process, from composition and camera settings to post-processing and storytelling.

Come home with a portfolio of photographs that will make you proud and inspire others to see the world in a new light. Let's make memories that will last a lifetime and change the world one photograph at a time.

Timeline & Activity Schedule
Conservation is Core
At EPIC Photo Escapes, animal conservation and ethical travel are at the core of everything we do. We believe that as photographers, it is our responsibility to protect and preserve the wildlife and their habitats that we capture through our lenses. That's why we only work with outfitters and partners who share our commitment to sustainability and responsible tourism practices. We strive to ensure that our workshops not only provide incredible photographic opportunities but also make a positive impact on the environment and the local communities we visit. By promoting ethical travel and animal conservation, we aim to inspire others to use their cameras as a tool for change and help create a better world for all.
