Six times a year we put together superb value photographic safaris trips lead by the founder, Christopher Bartlett, who has had his work published in field-leading magazines around the world.
About You, "The Professional"...
What I find most rewarding about my job:
Sharing places I love with guests for the first time, seeing their wonderment, and helping them capture the scenes that enthrall them.
What I am most proud of (professionally):
Regularly exceeding client expectations.
Where I see myself and/or business in 5 years:
Doing what I am doing now - I love it. Why change?
About You, "The Person"...
Favorite place to dive:
That's like asking for a favorite wine or beer. It depends on the occasion and what i want to see. I love all the destinations in our portfolio, for different reasons. If I don;t dig a place, I don't promote it.
Most memorable dive experience:
There have been many stunners. I guess the one with the most far-reaching effect was my first baited Tiger Shark dive in South Africa. It woke my conscious to so many things.
It will be good in the end. If it's not good now, it's not the end. A man can wait a long time on a hill with his mouth open waiting for a roast duck to fly in.
Something people would be surprised to learn about me:
I'm afraid of heights.
