The first thing we wanted to ensure on our recent Cool Hunting Edition: Photo Safari in Zambia was that we were able to take great photographs. We needed binoculars and a lot of camera equipment, but more importantly we wanted to have a professional photographer along with us to help us get the most out of our gear and to learn how to take the best pictures possible under these special conditions.

Pentax was a perfect partner for us because their cameras and lenses are easy to use and create high quality images. With the help of professional adventure photographer Kerrick James and equipment provided by Pentax, including the K-30, the K-01 and the Optio WG-2, everyone got a hands on experience taking photos in the bush. In this video we look at Pentax's role in our trip and how Kerrick helped our participants and the students at Mfuwe's local school master the art of taking pictures. The photographic experience became core to our safari, and Pentax graciously offered the camera of choice to everyone on the trip and several cameras with the school.
