Sure, anyone could drive to the Berg, get their boots out and experience the raw beauty of the place at any time. Nothing stops you from taking your camera and tripod with you in the hopes of getting that once in a lifetime shot. So then why would you pay extra money to have someone show you around? Here are a few points to consider.
A workshop will inspire you and it might just remind you why you bought that camera in the first place. Spending time with like-minded people, participating in photographic creativity in a place like the Drakensberg is hugely enriching. With a specialist photographic tour, you can visit some of the most beautiful locations – safe in the hands of someone who knows the area and can guide you to well picked out spots. Knowledge of the location is a huge bonus. My job is to get you to the best spot at the right time so you only need to worry about taking a great image. The Drakensberg is a huge playground for landscape photographers and there is a lot out there that has not been captured.
I will ensure everyone gets exactly the level of support they need and be on hand to offer help when needed. Clients are free to explore and enjoy the environment they are in.
One of the most effective methods of learning is to cover the theory and technical aspects and then using them immediately. This process needs regular repetition. The more you use your new skills, the more the knowledge will stay with you longer and eventually it will become second nature. Guidance is given on location, so you can learn ‘in field’ and put your new skills to use straight away.
Landscape photography is very much about previsualization. To work with someone who knows the area and the light is very rewarding when it comes to identifying the merit that a scene might have to offer.
When all is said and done your photograph is your work of art. Attending a workshop will help you to shape and express the artwork a different way. There is no set way that any scene should be captured, but there are many helpful tricks that will help you to do it.
I offer a variety of workshops and my plan is to keep them coming. You can join me on any of the following – just click on the link to see more info0
