after 30+ years in the computer industry, Mr. Cowger decided he
really wanted to be an international travel and wildlife photographer when he grows up.
Since then, his passion for the art of photography, love of Africa,
and the thrill of the bush has become his
reality (although some would argue that growing up has yet to happen).
In his words, "Nothing gives me more pleasure than
introducing people to the amazing wildlife, beautiful scenery and
wonderfully welcoming people of Tanzania. I truly am blessed to be
living my life's dream". Mr. Cowger has organized more than 20
photo safaris & workshops
to the wonders of the Serengeti ecosystem.
While Mr. Cowger has traveled to 56 countries with
many more on his bucket list, the only place that keeps drawing him back
is Africa. "I will never tire of observing each of my guests
experiencing their own personal wildlife special on each trip. It is a
life changing experience for most, and at least the trip of a lifetime
for all." Comprehending that in this modern age of dwindling
resources, there are more than 2 million large mammals roaming free in
an ecosystem around which there are no fences is mind boggling for most
In between trips, Mr. Cowger is a commercial
photographer providing advertising images of
the travel provides wonderful photographic opportunities, the greatest
benefit of being a photographer is looking for and finding beauty in our everyday
so easy to miss, and yet so easy to find. Look for it !
