PHOTOGRAPHY AND ADVENTURE

SENSATIONS – EXPERIENCES - TRAVEL


Tours

Hiking – Sightseeing - Photography
We offer tours at the most outstanding and contrasted landscapes, as sightseeing tours by car, hiking tours and photographic excursions (with personal tuition), or a mix of these activities, always accompanied with information about landscape, flora and fauna, ethnography and geology. The aim of the excursions is to offer tours that seek the contrast of landscapes, on routes that start where the roads of the travel brochures end, uniting culture, photography, nature and ethnography, in experiential tours that transport us in time and towards new sensations and horizons. The activities are offered in Spanish, English, German, Dutch, French and Italian and can be contracted for half a day or a complete day, or a (long) weekend. The tours are suitable for all kinds of people, and recommended for individuals as well as for groups.

Photography Workshops

Landscape – Night photography
The workshops are given by two teachers with demonstrated experience in landscape and night photography and are suitable for a wide audience; from those wanting to know and visit interesting places, the enthusiastic amateur trying to improve his skills up to the professional who seeks to expand his photographic portfolio. The workshops seek to familiarize participants with different theoretical and practical aspects of the photography of night and landscape and prepare them for the different situations and possibilities on the landscapes. Several photography manuals are provided to students in the course. Apart from the essential technical part the workshops emphasize much on the subject of the composition as well as on the language of artistic expression and on the creative empowerment.
