Romanian Bucharest-based photographer and cinematographer Vlad Cioplea is raising funds to fuel his photographic expedition to the African heart of Tanzania.
He plans to leave in August to spend some time in Savanna, to catch on camera and to study more about the people of Massai and Bushemen tribes, to take pictures and to attend one of the oldest, the biggest and most nature-reconnecting African event – the wild animals migration.
Vlad is locally known for his project 100 Friends, in which he photographed his Facebook friends to illustrate their passions. But travelling / journey photography is not entirely a new territory for him either. He traveled before to Morroco, Spain, Portugal, places where he came back from with dozens of good pictures.
“In a field where all those who have a DSLR call them photographers, for me photography is more than that. For me it is the perfect blend of passion and study, much study. And this is one of the reasons I want to go in expedition in Tanzania”, Vlad says.
He mentions the cost of his journey is about € 2500, which would cover transport, accommodation, vaccine, equipment rental and eventual local taxes. His crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo will end on 5th of August.
