PHOTO ADVENTURE WORKSHOPS
For those who love Adventure Travel Photography.
Photo Adventure Workshops
Our goal is to create small group creative photo adventure workshop journeys providing a rewarding learning experience. Our workshops offer you an opportunity to combine a unique travel destination, or just a few days off, with a wonderful creative learning experience, a unique blend of hands-on and short casual lectures on a variety of topics, bringing home personally meaningful images.
We’re passionate about teaching the different aspects of photography. A good amount of time will be spend on:
Giving you detailed feedback and assistance/suggestions from our side
Help you to become comfortable photographing strangers in unfamiliar environment with respect and dignity towards your subjects. Even if you don't speak the language, empathy has no language. In return this will make you feel relaxed and confident, which is important for making environmental portraits or street photography.
Recognise favourable photography situations. Not everything is interesting to photograph. We will make your internal sirens go off meaning "We've got a situation!" when photographical interesting elements which are resonating with you are aligning. Find 2-3 a day and you had a great day. We speak about what such "situations" are and what to do when you find them.
Judge the quality of natural light and find the good light at any time of the day. Not only in the early morning or afternoon/evening.
How to adjust correctly to low light situations. Do not blindly crank up your ISO setting and continue like it was day.
We want you to return home with a personally meaningful photo essay.
Enjoying your holiday and our time together in a small group, facilitating cultural interaction with the people we meet. You are after all on holiday. We will select - wherever possible - great places to eat and explore the local foods.
Exploring the roads less travelled: We will aim to avoid places which are too often frequented by large tour groups and instead search and visit hidden gems on the roads less travelled. We visit places that provide truly amazing photographic opportunities in a once in a lifetime journey experience. While we will travel as a group, you will be encouraged to “follow your instincts” independently and explore aspects of each village and town that interests you so that each participant has their own unique experiences to share. We will sometimes walk around as a group, but then other times we may separate from each other while getting caught up in something that personally resonates with our inner self. It’s OK to loose time while photographing.
Our adventure travel photo workshops are meant for those photographers, of any level, who with an independent and inquisitive mind, are seeking a more immersive learning experience while enjoying exploring what’s hidden around the next corner and documenting the natural beauty and social fabric found along timeless and less travelled paths . Non-photographers are also welcome.
While none of our travels are physically demanding, the participants should be in good health and ready to walk and explore.
