My trip to Tanzania to capture some great images and video on the Serengeti has made it onto the National Geographic Documentary called Animal Fight Night. The link to preview the footage can be found here > https://app.aframe.com/links/062066943617753e97150fb0a813b23b

Every now and then it becomes obvious to me how passionate I am about creativity. My mind never stops creating new ideas and the amazing thing is I have the knowledge and ability to see these ideas from concept to completion.
Safaris can be and usually are a dry and dusty place. If you’re not careful when handling your DSLR on safari then things can go wrong very quickly. One of the first things to be sure of is getting yourself equipped with a good adventure style camera bag. Read on at Africa Freak to find out about protecting your camera on safari.
Awesome news! I have just been accepted as a contributor to the Safari blog, Africa Freak (African Safari and Wildlife Specialists). Now granted I’m not a specialist in that field, but my passion was intensified for Africa after a 3 week whirlwind trip in June 2009. In 3 weeks I experienced 2 very different safaris, Serengeti/Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara and a 55km 3 day hike through the crater highlands in northern Tanzania, so with that I am hoping to share my experiences and provide tips on things I learnt on the way. I have captured an incredible amount of footage […]
My passion for photography has certainly grown exponentially over the last 2 years. I find it hard to go through a single day without taking photos nowadays. On top of my creative passions is something I have been doing since as far back as 2002, and that’s taking panoramic photos. I have had at least one or two people mention that they love my panoramic photos. So I decided, why not take the next step and start selling my panoramic prints online. Cut to the pre-cooked sample, and voila! www.lovethepano.com. Right now as of this post there are 9 prints […]
Just prior to traveling to Tanzania in June of 2009 I decided to switch my kit 200mm lens for the AF-S VR Zoom-Nikkor 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED . At the time I wasn’t sure if that was the right decision, but looking back and looking at the photos I managed to capture on the 300mm, no regrets whatsoever. I can also say that if you are just getting into DSLR photography, that the Nikon D90 is certainly what I would recommend. Now I’m not a professional photographer, but the opinion of a passionate amateur might just be what you’re looking for. […]
Currently I am continuing to develop the Australia Zoo TV project. This is a very exciting project and has a lot of potential to do well and delivers some great video content, spreading the message of Conservation. www.australiazoo.tv. Developing the website, filming the Rescue Unit, editing and producing the episodes has been a huge challenge, but one I have fully enjoyed. Another recent project is for a very good cause. Humanidee (www.humanidee.org). I met Dee through the fodder of Twitter after my trip to Tanzania. Dee has set up Humanidee to help people in need all over the world. Currently […]
Continued from No Ordinary Journey Part 3 We woke early to depart for Lake Manyara. Mosses and the crew packed the safari vehicle and we were off early. Lake Natron was a nice spot but we really wanted to head off to capture some more game viewing at Lake Manyara. It was a long drive over rough and dusty roads but the view was simply stunning. There were Giraffe everywhere, it was spectacular. After a long haul over rough road for most of the morning, we arrived at Lake Manyara for a 1/2 day of game viewing. Lake Manyara is […]
I mixed a couple of videos together in relation to my journey to Tanzania. Been crazy busy so I haven’t finished the final blog on Zanzibar yet. I will get to that soon. In the meantime, enjoy these videos. No Ordinary Joutney – Part 1 Dar es Salaam, Moshi, Mt Kilimanjaro, Arusha and the Serengeti. No Ordinary Journey (part 1) from Bruce Levick on Vimeo. In June of 2009 I took a long journey to Tanzania and experienced nothing like the supposed real life I live and lead here in Australia. This is the best thing anybody can do to […]
Continued on from No Ordinary Journey Part 2 We finished our Safari with a lunch at the Ngorongoro park gate where Mosses filled out some paperwork before we headed off to Nainoknoka, which is where I would start my hike with Justin. I found I just couldn’t get into eating the safari lunches, perhaps my appetite was still playing up. Either way I couldn’t finish my lunch. Turns out this unfinished lunch would haunt Kellie at the next stop, as a full grown male Baboon decided to join her in the vehicle to get a hold of this unfinished bevy […]
