David Wright & Sisse Brimberg Photo Safari

Join Photographers David Wright & Sisse Brimberg for a Photo Safari on Georgia’s Cumberland Island
Monday, January 8th – Friday, January 12th, 2018

After our first photo safari with David Wright last January, we are planning a new adventure!  David will be joined by renowned National Geographic Photographer Sisse Brimberg for a collaborative teaching experience. David and Sisse have worked together on expeditions across Europe and now look forward to sharing their experience and stories with you during a week when Greyfield Inn will be completely dedicated to our participants and their travel partners.

Both David and Sisse have worked for clients including National Geographic, the BBC, and PBS in over sixty countries. Returning to Cumberland, they will share their years of experience shooting stories of all types. They will also be assisted by David’s wife MiMi McGee. Together they will help you discover the island’s magical landscapes and wildlife. From January 8th through 12th (5 days / 4 nights), you can join your guides for a photo safari and retreat at the historic Greyfield Inn – learning, exploring, and sharing the secret locations around Cumberland Island.

From unspoiled beaches to walks through live oak groves and starry nights at the spectacular ruins of Dungeness, both beginner and experienced photographers have the opportunity to learn new techniques with David & Sisse while exploring the island – a place steeped in rich history, yet still very wild. In between explorations, safari attendees will relax and recharge while staying in the comfort and luxury of Greyfield Inn.

After a morning ferry ride from Fernandina, FL, guests will arrive on Cumberland Island to a picnic lunch and room assignment. Safari excursions around Cumberland Island will be tailored to attendees’ preferences. From hiking in old growth forests to biking along the 18 + miles of beachfront and driving around historic structures, the trip is full of exploration options depending on interest. After a day of adventure, guests will enjoy a relaxing evening on the Greyfield Inn porch, followed by dinner, all while having the opportunity to spend time with your hosts and hear feedback on your photography during the trip.


Attendees are invited to bring a traveling companion to accompany them for the duration of the Photo Safari. While companions cannot participate in safari adventures, they are welcome to enjoy everything Greyfield Inn has to offer and join the group for meals and cocktail hour each day.

  • Dawn and dusk on the Atlantic Ocean, including miles of undeveloped beach
