Travel to South Africa for a dynamic one-month photography program where your subject will be the African wildlife. Engage in thoughtful photographic expeditions and theoretical training sessions held by professional instructors.

Photography program

Spend a one-month vacation along the Garden Route of the South African coast, learn in-depth photography skills and capture the African fauna. The program is designed by professionals willing to teach attendants everything they need to know about wildlife and travel photography. Suitable not only for photography and journalism students searching for unique shots for their portfolios, but also for amateur photographers in search for a thorough learning experience, the program is based on both theoretical and practical lessons.

Theoretical training

During your Wildlife and Travel Photography vacation, you will learn valuable notions about DSLR photography and your camera’s specific functions. The theoretical classes and tutorials will teach you about: shooting burst and stitching, composite photos making, stock photography, advanced Adobe Lightroom, marketing through blogging and social media, underwater photography, setting your own business, monetization of your photographs, and contracting clients.
