Paul Goldstein Award winning photographer, presenter and guide takes members
through the agonies (frequent) and ecstasies (infrequent), prides and pitfalls of trying to
attain ‘that’ photograph.
Paul has guided photographers for 25 years, he owns four safari camps in Africa and has
guided in six continents. The Sunday Times described him as a preposterously vivacious
guide of almost psychotic gusto.’ ‘No-one will drag you up the photographic slope quicker
but he has been known to reduce grown men and women to tears.’
You have been warned, buckle yourselves in and throw the instruction manual and form
book out of the window.
