If your holiday videos lack pizazz and you fancy a walk on the wild side, why not hone your photographic skills with a two-week photo safari complete with an award-winning cameraman? Safari specialist Walker and Hammond is offering tailor-made trips to the African plains with BBC cameraman Warren Samuels, of Big Cat Diaries fame, and editor Rob O'Meara. Under their tutelage you can learn video- and still-camera techniques. Previous experience is not essential.

Travelling through the bush in a specially designed four-wheel-drive vehicle, with door- and roof-mounted cameras, portable monitors and mobile editing equipment, you can tell your own story under the watchful eye of the experts.

Accommodation is a mix of canvas and fixed homestays, ensuring you are never far from the action. The experience should appeal to those whose safari wildlife shots consist of unidentifiable dots of grey in a sea of beige. To top it all off, you return home with a professionally made DVD of your holiday experience.
