"I wanted to thank you again for such a great trip. I had an awesome time and it has just sparked my enthusiasm to get back out there (not that I know when that will be possible). Your discussion topics were spot on for me and I left feeling like I had a good sense on where my photography was at and what I need to work on to take it to the next level. Will definitely be planning to get on one of your trips again and hope to catch up for a beer when you are in Oz later in the year. I am so impressed by what you are doing in the industry over there and all the new projects - keep up the good work. Hoping our paths cross again in the not too distant future."
"Thank you for an amazing couple of days in the bush. We were fortunate to enjoy great sightings and we benefited from Shem’s vast experience and knowledge about both wildlife and photography. Shem is a genuinely nice guy and a very good teacher. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to improve their photography"
"Awesome! Fabulous! What more can we say? Greg & Shem, your photographic skills, incredible enthusiasm, deep knowledge & love of the African wilderness enabled our keen Aussie group to experience ‘the best of the best’ in the Samburu, Lake Nakuru & Masai Mara areas. A big thank you to you both and to our friendly & knowledgeable drivers and your great team who made it all happen. It was a totally enriching experience in so many ways and one which we will cherish for many years. We plan to return soon."
"What a magnificent experience! Thanks Shem for arranging a life changing trip for us! Thanks also for teaching me as a novice so much about photography in the short time we were able to spend together! We hope to be able to do this again in a few years!"
"Thank you most sincerely for our remarkable experience in Kenya. What a blast! This was the best three weeks of my 3300 weeks on this planet!! Gayle ,the Non-Photographer allegedly on this safari was also ecstatic about our experiences and with the help of Shem Compion and other world-class photographers, has produced her own great images. We have been spoilt by excellent planning, superb accommodation, knowledgeable driver/guides who could predict animal movement and understood photographer requirements, good food and absolutely wonderful company. It was most rewarding to have the company of fellow photography enthusiasts,s haring tips and comments while the action unravelled before our eyes. Fellow travellers rapidly became friends and shared equipment and knowledge generously. We owe you...."

"We had a truly wonderful time on the workshop. We have been to Mashatu several times and the time spent with Shem enhanced an already wonderful experience. His photographic knowledge and ability to confer that knowledge made for a fantastic learning opportunity. However his familiarity with the area and love and passion for nature made it a truly unique trip and one we hope to repeat."
"An excellent destination to conduct a field workshop. At the current price I won't hesitate to join again. The experience and sightings will always be part of my memory. Thanks Shem for yet another few beautiful days out in nature!"
"I have been taking photographs for many years, yet I learnt a lot from Shem during the photo workshop, and found that my work rapidly improved from day to day. The way that Shem organized the vehicles, drivers, trackers and lectures was excellent. The lighting was superb, being in the middle of winter with long hours of low light. The venue and availability and visibility of game were all excellent. The fact that we all had the same interests and objectives made this a very pleasant and rewarding experience. For anybody wanting to learn, improve or just enjoy photography, this photo workshop is a must."
"I have travelled twice with C4 Images and Safaris Safaris and both have been extremely enjoyable trips. Shem is an excellent host, a knowledgeable guide, who has a great knack of spotting the wildlife and getting you into a position for a great photo. The Kalahari trip was a particular highlight for me with some great wildlife viewing. I would have no hesitation in recommending C4 Images and Safaris to friends looking for a photographic safari of a lifetime."
