Hi all!

We are extremely glad to announce you all our next exclusive Photo Trip “Namibia: Desert & Wildlife – 2013”!

Join landscape and nature photographer Rafael Rojas and his partner Anca Minican on this exclusive photographic trip to Namibia which will take place from the 19th of May to the 1st of June 2013.
Over a period of two weeks we will visit and photograph some of the most incredible places in the whole African continent that provide a real dream environment for the photographer: The highest sand dunes on Earth, the striking landscape of NamibRand reservation, imposing granite mountains rising from the plains, surrealist and graphical trees which seem from another planet, the amazing wildlife of Etosha…

This will be an All Inclusive Photographic Trip conducted personally by Rafael Rojas and Anca Minican, relaxed yet well organized so that you spend your time photographing, not on the road, and where we will benefit from the best lodges, food and transportation services offeredin the country, many of which provide a memorable experience in themselves.

English, French and Spanish speakers are welcome to this Photo Trip!

You can download here our detailed 30 pages PDF Brochure for this Photo Trip, available either in English or in French, or also by clicking on the Trip Banner below!

As a reduced number of places is available, we expect this Photo Trip to fill quickly, so do not delay your inscription if you are interested!

Do not hesitate to contact us in case you have any question and see you soon… maybe in the dunes of the Namib desert?

Rafael and Anca

Bonjour à tous!

Nous sommes très ravis de vous annoncer notre voyage photographique “Namibie: Désert et Vie Sauvage – 2014”

Joignez Rafael Rojas, photographe professionnel de paysage et de nature et Anca Minican dans ce voyage photographique exclusif en Namibie qui aura lieu du 11 au 24 mai 2014.

Durant deux semaines, nous photographierons certains des endroits les plus incroyables de tout le continent africain : Les plus hautes dunes de sable sur terre, le paysage saisissant de NamibRand, des imposantes montagnes de granit s’élevant des plaines, des arbres surréalistes et graphiques qui semblent être d’une autre planète, la faune impressionnante d’Etosha…

Ce sera un Voyage Photo exclusive, tout inclus, détendu et en même temps très bien organisé de sorte que vous passiez votre temps à photographier plutôt que d’être constamment sur la route et durant lequel nous bénéficierons des meilleurs services d’hébergement, de restaurations et de transport offerts dans le pays, dont beaucoup créent à eux seuls une expérience mémorable.

Vous pouvez télécharger ici nos brochures détaillés de 30 pages avec toute l’information sur le Voyage Photo, en Français ou en Anglais, ou bien en cliquant sur le bannière du voyage ci-dessous!

Nous attendons que les places se remplissent vite, donc ne retardez pas votre inscription si vous êtes intéressé!

N’hésitez pas à nous contacter si vous avez encore des questions et à bientôt,…peut être sur les dunes du désert de Namib?

Rafael et Anca,

Hi there!

I apologize  for the long absence from this blog, but the last weeks have been hectic and it seems things are not likely to “improve” in the next 3 or 4…But I could not be happier. After months (even years) of work, three things are about to be launched and by the 15th of July I think I will have made a big step in my professional activity as photographer…

In the meantime, I really wanted to share with you some really great news. On the July issue of Outdoor Photographer magazine (USA), a full article appears devoted to my humble work. It has been quite thrilling to see my name on the cover of that great magazine, open the pages and find a place where I could share with fellow photographers my vision, motivation and thoughts about landscape photography and the life philosophy which comes with it…

I must say that what you will read on the article is a great summing up of the long discussions I had with the great team of OP. Working on that interview made me realize many things I had never had the “time” to consider about my work and myself…Stopping from time to time to put together our work and see what we do, who we are, where we are and where we want to go is crucial for any creative artist, and I think in the future I will start creating “imaginary” interviews with myself. Putting that together into a kind of “artistic log” might be really useful to push forward my vision and my motivations. I know it might sound silly, but I would really urge you to write down a number of questions, as if they were going to be answered by another photographer, and answer them to yourself, in total honesty and sincerity. You will be pleased and surprised with the results…

I hope you will enjoy the article amigos.

See you soon, with quite some news and a fully renewed activity!…But now, I am afraid it is time to enter back again into the cave…

Great light to you all,

rafael

Hi there!

In the frame of my next exhibition “Lumières Naturelles” at at the Space Forum of Fnac – La Rive, Geneva, Switzerland, next week on the 7th of June, starting from 18:00 hours, I will be holding a Masterclass in the same place.

During 1 to 1.5 hours I will discuss about all those aspects we can find behind the curtains of our photographs: photographic vision, composition, use of natural light, the philosophy and life style of a nature-landscape photographer…

In case you are interested, you might sign up contacting Fnac. Limited places available!

On the anecdote side of things, I was quite struck to see the poster with my name displayed besides that of the famous writer Paulo Coelho, who was also having an event at Fnac!!

See you there maybe and great light to you all!
