When: Upon request in Spring and Autumn
Traveling around the globe – whether for touristic or other purposes – offers you plenty of photo opportunities. At the same time, time schedules and weather conditions do not always guarantee the most perfect conditions for photography.
You learn to handle situations you encounter – from blazing sunshine, to lack of light, from strong winds, and a ban on using your flash, to large crowds – to make the best of your images while traveling. We show you different ways to stabilize your camera, how to deal with light, how to make good use of your fellow travel companions and how to capture the essence of a place.
Photo shoots on different locations are combined with discussing and viewing the results. The travel photography course covers a wide range of subjects: from nature and landscape photography to interior photography and capturing people and streetlife.
Photography Field Trips:
What better places to practice than on great locations like the vegetable market in the town of Sparta, a Greek village square, the Byzantine castle of Mystras, the fortress town of Monemvasia or the impressive landscape and virgin shores of the Mani peninsula.
You can shoot some of your greatest travel images during local events. Religious festivals, local markets, parades, and traditional activities like harvesting, sheep herding or the making of local cheese create fine photo opportunities. As people are busy, it gives you plenty of time to photograph. Where possible we integrate local events into the program for travel photography. This short course in travel photography can easily be combined with the Nature Photography course or be preceded by the Learning Digital Photography course.
