Thank you Agierke. Nice points!
Yes, my primary aim is to get photos for myself but I will need to juggle as I need to keep up my commitment also. :)

Sanj, who are you kidding? You are a cinematographer. You can teach them stuff till the wildebeest come home! :)

hahahahhaha. BUT still photography has its own processes. Besides on a set I work with over 6 assistant and 15 lighting guys. Here I will be alone. What if they ask me a question I do not know the answer to? Eiks!

I think I will take 'advantage' of all you people here and prepare the .pdf soon enough and post it here for you all to modify it. That will be a super help. Ya.....!!!!

Spokane: I am making notes here and reading up stuff. 5 days before I leave I will make my own .pdf and print it out. I have download various different manuals. Great tips...

Distant Star: Yes, I am bit conscious of my Indian accent. It is not over the top, I have travelled the world and interacted with foreign crew members but still the fear of not sounding perfect to the Brit, Americans etc. I will be on the watch out for the 'moments'.

So are you not Sanjay Gupta from the website in your sig or are you saying you've faked your way so far that the work shown on the website was pretty mic done by others and you managed to get a write-in credit for those movies, articles, and photos?

From what's on the website, I'd think you're qualified to certainly teach some tourists and safari staff the fundamentals of photography.  Maybe your time with a DSLR isn't so high, but a few fill in concepts aside, you shouldn't be worried.

:) :) When all alone without a client, photography is much easier. I can struggle with setting while shooting. Struggle with edit in post. No one watches and eventually I manage results. That is what I meant by faking. 
Thanks for your encouragement.

In just after two weeks I am going to a major wildlife lodge in Africa in the middle of migration - their busy season - for 10 days of Safari in exchange for teaching the staff and clients photography. I have faked my way as a photographer so far. Now I am in the deep end.
How do you think I should handle the situation? The staff there is expert and the the clients rich and from all over the world.
What do I teach them? How do I teach them? Am so nervous.
Things which come to my mind are: Back focus, exposure compensation, servo focus, selecting focus points, raw v/s jpeg. Pls pls add to this list with hints on teaching and techniques. THX

Macro / Re: Just starting Macros - First examples.
« on: July 25, 2013, 01:41:40 AM »
Scot you will need to do macro work on tripod eventually if you want to be serious about it.
Focus stacking, long shutter because of small f stops mandate that. So IS is not so important in my opinion.
visit Juza photo for excellent macro references and techniques.
Best wishes.

EOS-M / Re: "Doctor, my eyes...."
« on: July 22, 2013, 02:06:54 AM »
I TOTALLY understand.
My solution or (should I say half solution, as it is bigger) is Fuji x100 or x100s

EOS Bodies - For Stills / Re: first paid gig need help
« on: July 19, 2013, 12:31:15 PM »
I would avoid getting too artsy. I would carry the camera, 24-70 and the flash ONLY. Less gear is better.

Buy knee pads - they are your best aid as most of the times you will be on your knees.

Wear a party cap and mingle so the kids are not cautious. Depending upon the light situation I would key in -2 exposure on the flash so it does over power.

Enjoy!
