- Photography Teacher

Photographing Wildlife Is My Absolute Passion!

I’ve been teaching photography to people from all walks of life for over 10 years, leading groups and personalised 1:1's both in the UK and internationally.  I've successfully helped complete novices right through to professional photographers wanting to improve their skills in nature and wildlife photography.

I know what it's like to go on a workshop and feel completely out of place! When I started my photographic career, everyone was older than me and had much better kit! - Even though most of them didn't actually know how to use it! I've spent thousands on workshops and seminars only to walk away feeling like I haven't personally learnt anything new and that there were too many people so I didn't get the help & attention I needed to improve my images and build my confidence!

I pride myself on being different. My safaris are not an excuse for me to tell you how great my photos are. My safaris are all about YOU! How I can help YOU get the images you dream of, no matter what kit you have. I understand the importance of being patient and I have the ability to easily explain and help YOU become competent in the skills and techniques you need to get that perfect, once in a lifetime wildlife image, worthy of hanging on your living-room wall!

I'm the highest google rated photography tutor in Sheffield and I'm a member of the Society of International Nature & Wildlife Photographers.

Nelson Ole Reiya

- Owner of Oldarpoi Mara Camp & Nashulai Mara Conservancy

- Safari Guide 

- Travel & Tourism Lecturer


​Nelson and his wife Maggie work tirelessly for wildlife conservation.

Both born and raised Maasai, they have built an incredible social enterprise, bringing together the local community. Oldarpoi (our chosen Maasai Mara camp) employs local people and 40% of the profits made by the tourists go back into the community to build schools, teaching hospitals and raising awareness for the end of female genital mutilation. 

Nelson, over a number of years, has successfully convinced other Maasai leaders to combine their land together, resulting in the birth of Nashulai, a vital corridor conservancy on the edge of the Mara triangle. 

Thanks to Nelson's vision we can now benefit from seeing the wildlife have more land which is so important and beneficial for everyone.

Born and raised in Eastern Uganda, Charles caught the conservation bug at an early age and has spent over 11 years in various roles and fields of conservation. He studied at the Kenya Wildlife Institute, majoring in Tourism Management and later moved to the famous College of African Wildlife Management; Mweka, in Moshi Tanzania.

Charles is a respected primatologist and tourism specialist, who has spent over a decade in Kibale Forest, seeing it transform from a forest reserve to a national park. He was a key player in habituating chimpanzees, and developing chimp related tourism. Charles has managed the Kyambura Gorge and the Jane Goodall Institute Collaborative Primate Habituation Project, both under the Uganda Wildlife Authority.

Following senior positions in national parks and chimpanzee tourism management, he decided to take a Masters in Natural Resource Management at Leicester University, U.K., with an emphasis on the bushmeat trade.


His knowledge of East African wildlife and protected areas will give you a clear insight into sustainable conservation in this region. His experience in ornithology (the study of birds) and great apes is also second to none!
