byThom Workshops

For almost two decades Thom Hogan has taught one or two intensive long-form photo workshops each year. In the past ten years, that's included bringing along his teaching assistant, Tony Medici. Thom's previous workshops have been in various parts of South America, Africa, and the United States. Many of these workshops involve experiences and adventure you don't get in a hotel-based weekend workshop.

All byThom workshops feature teacher-to-student ratios of no more than 7:1 (in Africa 6:1) with as much one-on-one interaction as you are comfortable with. Lodging, food, and transportation are all first class, even when we use our mobile tent camps in Africa; we don't want logistics or practical living matters to get in the way of our photography. Thom uses award-winning tour operator Wilderness Travel to handle all the logistics for his International trips. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some 2020 workshops were postponed into 2021 and then again into 2022. At present, we have two workshops in April 2022 that still have a few openings:

  • Okavango Delta — April 7 to April 19, 2022 (full)
  • Kalahari Desert — April 20 to April 29, 2022, with possible Okavango Extension (to May 4, 2022) (full)

Note about COVID-19: these workshops were originally scheduled for 2020 and were postponed out of an abundance of caution. Because we cannot predict the exact pandemic situation in Botswana so far in advance of these trips, we recommend that everyone signing up take out trip cancellation insurance. When you sign up with Wilderness Travel for either workshop, they can help you find such insurance. Also note: these are the last workshops I can do at these prices. All our vendors except for internal plane travel have been kind enough to keep their 2020 pricing intact. The internal plane travel prices will be adjusted for aviation fuel prices (they shouldn't change much).
