general information

Our aim is to make your visit to the area an interesting and enjoyable experience. There's so much to see and the workshops are designed as excursions to help develop your creative eye, enjoy the art of photography and visit the more unique parts of this beautiful region. We focus on developing your keen eye with what you see through the lens of your camera - how to freeze that one moment and lock it in as a memory - it's not an intense technical day - it's all about taking pictures, visiting new places and having fun at the same time. You don't need the latest professional camera equipment, any camera will do even a smartphone, but I guarantee you will think differently about how you compose the shot in the future.
