What his students say:     

“David Wells is an excellent teacher. Demanding and supporting, I value his critique and his encouragement. He builds community with his students so we are working as a team on becoming better photographers. I seek him out as a teacher (three workshops thus far) because of how David has helped me in seeing, evaluating what is important about light and context, and improving technique, all to produce enhanced images."

David in India & Morocco

Temu Nana was born in Detroit, MI to a Pakistani father and Canadian mother. He had the good fortune to travel extensively as a child and has lived for short periods in Saudi Arabia, England, Italy, and Greece. While managing a restaurant in NYC, a meeting with Open Sky Expeditions President, Alex Ros, led him to the travel industry, where he worked for several years on small-ship, luxury, educational cruises as a Cruise Director or Tour Manager. Temu had the good fortune to work with—and learn from—expert field staff, and has led dozens of tours on five continents: Africa, Europe, the Americas, and Asia. He is equally comfortable conducting tours in cultural or natural history, though his first passion—and inspiration to pick up a camera, with which he instantly fell in love—is the natural world.  Over the last six years he has become a prolific and skilled photographer. Temu looks forward to exploring the world with you, and getting amazing shots along the way!
