Hello

Hi, I’m Graham Dargie, I’m a professional photographer, photography instructor, writer and speaker from Aberdeen in Scotland. I first picked up an SLR camera in 1995, I’ve been professional photographer since 2005 and I’ve been teaching photography since 2009.

Over my career I’ve photographed just about everything from businessmen to ballerinas in places from Bridge of Don to Brooklyn NY. My experience stands me in good stead as a teacher and I’m used to working with all kinds of people.

Somehow, through the merging of my personal and professional lives, I’ve found myself leading photography safaris in the Maasai Mara. I never planned for this to happen and I couldn’t have even dreamed of it! I wrote and taught my first photography class in 2009. One thing lead to another and a few years later I began leading photography tours to Skye. Safari seemed like the next logical step for me. My wife is a Kenyan, I know Kenya well and I’m fortunate to have been on safari a number of times. Over the years I’ve developed a good network in Kenya and in 2017 the Kenya Tourism Board recognized me as a Kenya Champion due to my passion for the country as a destination.

I’ve learned how to run a successful class or tour. Small group sizes are guaranteed (5 maximum) so everyone gets the attention they need. Amazing locations will inspire you to raise the level of your photography. Great accommodation and hospitality glue the whole thing together and make the times between photos comfortable and relaxing.

If groups aren’t for you then ask me about a 1-to-1 day or a private guided tour.
