You always learn a few words of the tribal language, the local guides will help you, and you have plenty of time for your pictures.
The photography level of this expedition is from beginner to advance. At least you should be enthusiastic about photography and eager to learn. The main focus of this tour is portrait photography of the tribes in the villages to capture the daily life, but also important events like markets, dances or rituals. Tribal photography is a very sensitive field in photography, and some of the tribal people react aggressive when a visit of a tourist group looks more like an invasion and they feel hassled by all the cameras. An important part of this photo expedition is to learn to respect each other, to communicate and to interact with the tribal people – the reward is a unique experience and you will see tribal people are in the same way interested in you as you are curious about their culture.
