- Education: San Francisco State University, B.A., Photojournalism
While studying photojournalism at college in San Francisco, Tate began developing the global photography program for Acanela Expeditions, designing and leading trips on four continents around the globe and taking her to more than 70 countries. After graduating, she moved to Mozambique to combine her passion for guiding and photography. As a passionate photojournalist, Tate has spent the past six years shooting wildlife and environmental stories across Sub-Saharan Africa for clients such as The Nature Conservancy, the International Anti-Poaching Foundation, The Guardian, NPR, Adobe Lightroom, and more. Between photo assignments, Tate has led 4,500 km cycling expeditions across southern Africa, and continued to lead photography-focused trips in all corners of the world, including Namibia, the Arctic, the Amazon, the Alps, and north Africa. This fall, Tate is planning to solo trek the Arctic Circle Trail in Greenland while producing a multimedia story focused on climate change and the shifting Arctic landscape.
