Usha did a wonderful job of organising each and every minute detail of the safari… down to making the safari vehicle photography friendly. Obviously, we gained a lot of insights into wildlife photography from Usha’s experience. Her best contribution was Jacob, our driver and guide, who was exceptional and it was his skills that enabled us to see 7 different leopards on this trip, a record of sorts. The accommodation was unique and exciting, right in the middle of the African bush, with Hippos, lions and hyenas for company. Quality of stay was quite up to our expectations.
I am not a photographer. However the safari with Usha was most thrilling and joyous . She has taken care of me so well so that I never felt left out. The camp was too good what with the Masai’s hospitality , their respect for the tourists , their behaviour etc. Not but not the least was the expertise of the Masai guide Jacob. Overall an event to remember for years to come
Usha is wonderful photographer. There’s a thought and story behind every photo. She is a great photography mentor as well as a great photography companion. Our tour was well planned. Choice of locations and accomodations was satisfactory. The guide/driver was excellent and the vehicles was well suited for photography.
Usha’s passion about wildlife, conservation and photography comes through from the moment you meet her. She organised a wonderful safari in the Mara with invaluable photography tips at all times through the unpredictable action and animal behaviour in the Maasai Mara. Advice on aperture settings, white balance, metering, shutter speed carefully tailored to ever changing scenarios encountered. Her energy and excitement continued after evening game drives during sessions giving hands-on post-production advice too! Would thoroughly recommend planning a trip with Usha especially if you are a budding wildlife photographer.
Both our Safaris with Usha were outstanding and beyond expectations. Attention to minute details ensuring customer needs was fantastic. The immense knowledge of the guide(whom she chooses according to the photographer’s choice) is a great help identifying the animal species and bird watching.
Usha as a photographer is super comfortable and swift using her camera. Her passion and love for wildlife and photography is contagious. Usha’s marvelous pictures speak a hundred volumes about her skills. A great mentor and lovely friend.
