Photographing Africa

Photographing South Africa with Jen Ludlum

Jen will share some of her experiences of photographing South Africa including how and where to travel, the differences of traveling on your own versus group-led safaris, give an idea of budget needed, photos ideas, and leave time for Q&A. She promises to inspire you to move a trip to Africa off of your bucket list and make it happen.

Jen Ludlum’s interest in photography heightened when she joined her first camera club while living in Port Elizabeth, South Africa in 2008-09. Since then, Jen has traveled back five times to the country she fell in love with. She has another trip planned for early 2020. Jen has had her photos featured in Africa’s Getaway Magazine, the cover of South Africa’s Department of Tourism Annual Report, and was a weekly finalist in Africa Geographic’s Photographer of the Year competition. Jen is the co-founder and current president of Missionvale USA, a non-profit organization supporting those less fortunate in South Africa.  She is also active in the Art Festival scene in Georgia selling her photography throughout the year.

Berry College Eagles and Deer

Judy Glen will lead a field trip to Berry College near Rome, Georgia, on April 15 to photograph the famous family of bald eagles nesting near the lake at sunrise, as well as deer that frequent the grounds. Plan to meet up at the Epps Bridge Kroger parking lot by 4:30AM to form car pools. We will return to Athens some time in the afternoon.
