- Welcome, my name is Ute Sonnenberg. I write this blog about photography and especially wildlife photography with the connected adventures on photographic safaris. I try to share my experience and knowledge about the subject to help people finding their way around in this complex matter and to inspire photographic adventures. The name of my company is Roho Ya Chui, Swahili for “soul of leopard”. We help people organizing their photographic safaris, wildlife photography courses and team building photographic safaris.
Please feel free to ask any questions and please share your thoughts and feedback.
Thank you for visiting and reading the blog.
Thank you for your continus support.
Kindest regards, Ute
