We are an association based in Tanzania that focuses on promoting, supporting, and marketing wild places in Tanzania through film and photography..
TaWiMA runs photography Internships every year with Nomad Tanzania, giving opportunities to Tanzanian youth to gain basic and general skills related to the art of wildlife and camp photography. The trainee/intern will join TaWiMA trainer in partnership with NOMAD Tanzania team in order to develop skills and gain a learning-in-practice experience for one week in a Nomad camp.
‘Business as a force for good through every arm of the company’. Nomad believes in providing unique and exciting opportunities, and training for local Tanzanians in any area of the business that they can.
Running a comprehensive internship program that gets aspiring photographers into our wild corners of Tanzania to gain experience and gather content. The aim is that the program is mutually beneficial, with the interns learning from a mentor and building their portfolio, and at the same time providing Nomad with rich and current content for marketing efforts.
How is Nomad and TaWiMA doing it?
By creating a program that runs as a competition, with the prize being time spent with professional videographers and photographers throughout the safari season in order to learn from one of the best in the business. Nomad will send interns into their camps for as much time as space in camps allows (1 – 2 weeks is expected), to shadow mentors from TaWiMA initially, and then to run on their own steam to gather content.
Keen young wildlife photographers in Tanzania are short of opportunities of this kind. By investing in the people who will tell Tanzania’s story in years to come, and who will portray the beauty of its wildlife and natural heritage, Nomad invests not only in people but also in work being done in the conservation of Tanzania’s wilderness.
They hope to further the careers of as many aspiring Tanzanian wildlife photographers as they can.
