Watch this heartwarming tale of Teddy Sambu, a young photographer from Cape Town on his first assignment to the Okavango Delta.

If you only watch one video this week, make sure it’s this heartwarming tale of Teddy Sambu, a young South African photographer on his first assignment to the Okavango Delta in Botswana.

“A warm, raw and passionate narrative wrapped inside of a seven-minute film. We meet this vibrant, intelligent and wide-eyed young man, get a sense of his past and celebrate his future while following the adventure through the untamed Okavango Delta. This is not a holiday of discovery, it is a pressured, professional assignment that will impact on the rest of his life.”

Teddy is the first Imara Light Warrior, an initiative by Imara, in association with Pitch Black and 44Black, and has received a bursary at the Cape Town School of Photography, gear from Nikon, and a mentorship with the 44Black team. The video was produced by The Ginkgo Agency.
