Kalahari Dreaming with Bernd Wasiolka

Shutter Dreaming – Photography Feature

Acclaimed Namibian photographer, the late Paul van Schalkwyk, had a wonderful way of narrowing down the essence of what it means to be a photographer. In a country like Namibia, those with an eye that loves peering through the viewfinder, and fingers itching to push the shutter button, live with that wandering spirit. Those who are constantly traveling have the added advantage of being more often exposed to bigger and greater moments just yearning to be caught on camera. In this issue’s Photography Feature we highlight four tourism professionals who are frequently immersed in the many marvels of Namibia and let their Canons and Nikons capture the stunning moments before their wandering eyes.

Photo feature – Tarry Butcher

A happy snappy borrowed from my parents got me interested in photography from a young age, but it was obviously limited in what I expected from a camera. I bought my first proper camera when I was working on the Orange River as a river guide. Being out on the water every day I saw the most amazing birds, wildlife and scenery and I needed a camera that could capture these magical moments perfectly.
