red pointer - important information Photography Tour to Croatia (September 2-14, 2019)

Renowned for its natural beauty and historical heritage, Croatia is rapidly gaining popularity as a travel destination. Join me in September of 2019 for a 13-day photography tour to one of the most beautiful natural and historic regions of southern Europe. Roam the cobblestone streets cloaked in history and experience “Mediterranean As It Once Was”. Photograph majestic medieval castles, ancient Roman palaces, turquoise waters of Plitvice Lakes National Park, the charming coastal town of Rovinj, and the “Pearl of the Adriatic” – the walled city of Dubrovnik.

Photography workshops and seminars

Photography workshops and seminars include one or several illustrated lectures that cover a variety of topics: from the basic technical skills such as composition, exposure, lens choice, to the use of colour and light in photography. You will be introduced to new techniques, receive inspiring photo tips, and encouraged to take your photography to a higher level. Attending any of our workshops, seminars, or field trips will help you improve your technical skills, and provide you with an opportunity to learn how to discover and use visual elements in outdoor photography. I can also prepare and deliver a custom photography workshop for your group (example: macro photography workshop for a local plant society or a camera club).

 

Photography tours

The idea behind photography tours is to take participants to exceptional locations to explore and photograph. The advantage of our photo tours is that we harness the tour guide’s knowledge of an area to take you to locations with first class photographic opportunities. As a participating instructor, I will always be around to provide insightful tips and suggestions. You will be able to share your knowledge and experience with the group, and learn from other photographers who have similar interests.Transportation, lodging and meals are provided, allowing you to devote more time to do what you like doing most – photography.

I will be leading photo workshop and tours either alone, or in co-operation with other well known Canadian photographers and instructors.

 

Personal instruction

If you are interested in one-on-one tutorials and consultation, I am now offering personal instruction. Whether you are planning a ‘one in a lifetime photography trip’, interested in a review of your photography portfolio, or would just¬† like to learn basics of photography and how to use your new shiny camera, contact me and we can design a custom program to fit your specific learning needs.
