Collection Photo Tours Krijn van der Giessen Photography
A Photo Tour is the best way to improve your photography skills, whilst becoming a world traveller by visiting the world’s most wonderful places! We travel in small groups (8 people maximum, though often smaller) of like-minded photographers. This allows ample personal attention and makes it easier to go where ever we want to go.

We take as much time as necessary in order to allow you to take the best possible photos. As the group guide, I will help you find your camera’s optimal settings, just in time to snap that beautiful sunrise in all its glory. Daily one-on-one time, masterclasses and workshops ensure you’ll develop your photography skills at lightning speed!

We organise special permits for game reserves and national parks, enabling us to go where very few can. We fly in door-off helicopters, light bonfires at night, photograph the Milky Way and star-trails, all whilst indulging in the most delicious food and appreciating luxury accommodation!

    Krijn gave us an amazing experience in Mozambique! His passion for travelling and exploring different cultures is inspiring. He has a creative eye for finding unique off-the-beaten-track spots to photograph and the food and accommodations were even better. Looking forward to our next adventure!

    My trip to South Africa was life-changing. Krijn knew the best spots to find wildlife. I’ll never forget that up-close with the lions! The service and hospitality were amazing, the lodges exceeded my expectations; everything was taken care of. It was the best mix of activity and relaxation. Krijn’s passion for photography and his personal connection to the area and its people are inspiring. I can highly recommend his services.

    Krijn taught me (I am at beginners level) the basics of photography, which I now apply to every photo that I take. This resulted in amazing Safari photos! Especially knowledge of the composition is something that pays off immediately when you’re an inexperienced photographer. I can’t recommend him enough: excellent hospitality, great company and you’ll learn a lot!
