My project on "Life After Genocide" from Srebrenica, Bosnia and Rwanda will be permanently displayed and I hope some of you will have the chance to drop by. Here is a link to the program!

Photography Workshop- BHUTAN- August 2015

Bhutan Photo Workshop August 2015!
Plenty fantastic photography experiences- but be prepared to also be photographed!
Isolated in the Himalayas for centuries and untouched by mass tourism, Bhutan is a hidden gem for photographers. 
"Set out into the kingdom of Bhutan to shoot images of its welcoming people, exquisite temples, timeless farming villages, and the towering Himalaya. Capture scenes from a lively market or crimson-robed monks against a backdrop of whitewashed dzongs. Capture the spirit of happiness in the smile of kids, in an archery game and the celebration of ancient ceremonies. Practice your photographic skills while learning about Gross National Happiness and discovering this breathtaking country"

On this workshop I will be travelling with Alvaro Moreno, an expert on tourism and sustainable travels... He spent a year working for the tourist authorities in Bhutan and knows the place better then most.. In addition, there will be a local English speaking guide who will help us navigate through some of the major sites worth photographing!


 Itinerary:

11 August – Latest day to depart towards Kathmandu (contact us for other cities). Earlier departures possible.

12 August – Arrival to Kathmandu. Warm-up photo session in the historical city centre.

13-19 August – Photo workshop in Bhutan.

19 August – Departure to Kathmandu and day tour.
Depending on flight schedules, sightseeing might be possible. For those who continue back to Europe, night flight to country of origin.

20 August – Arrival to city of origin.

Daily planning

The workshop will be mostly hands-on. Every day in Bhutan will include a new visit and plenty of photo opportunities. The guide will explain what and where we will visit, the photographer will explain what we will focus on and give some guidance on how to approach the new photo opportunity. The goal will be to improve your photography skills and bring with you a nice portfolio from Bhutan at the end of the trip.

Level of the workshop

This workshop is perfect for beginners as well as advanced amateurs who want to get better at travel and reportage photography. Other travellers or partners of participants who want to discover Bhutan are also welcomed to join and whenever possible some alternative visits might be arranged, although they will mostly have to adapt to the rhythm of the group.
