What is Travel Photography?
Why should I do a photography workshop & why with you?
Good question! Photography workshops offer you (as a photographer of any skill level) the best possible experience to learn and enhance your photography with instructors and attendees that share the same interest and goals.
Finding the right workshop for you will give you the best results. Look at who is leading the workshop. Does their style & vision match yours? What level of experience is required? Does the location interest you? What are the costs & inclusions?
Why Us? On our workshops the focus is you. You have full-time access to us for the duration of the workshop to actively assist you. As professional travel photographers, we have travelled to many diverse locations and shot for tourism authorities, resorts and cruise lines. The workshops we run are located in our favourite places that we have visited many times and can’t seem to get enough of. We know them well and know the best locations to visit (and the right time). Travel photography is made up of many different genres of photography (read more above under “What is Travel Photography) and learning to shoot at any time of the day is what makes a good travel photographer. Whether it is cloudy, raining, or the middle of the day. We have learnt from many years in our profession how to shoot during any time of the day/night to make the most of our time and get those great shots as well. Our aim is to keep our groups small to allow plenty of one-on-one time with each attendee. We try to offer an authentic experience which includes tasting the local cuisine and exploring the history and culture the location has to offer as well as taking great shots along the way.
