Beyond shutter speeds and white balances into the heart of photography

In a year that is starting out on a very different note, I would like to introduce you to something very special. On a secluded beach in a wild corner of the South African coast, lies a pristine wilderness with a beach lodge only accessible by private vehicle. It is here that we will be hosting our photography masterclasses this year. This is not another photo workshop, it is a masterclass of recognising your environment, accepting it and producing relevant images from the experience.  An experience of being deep within a marine protected area, with no other humans in sight, no other footprints on the beach or dunes and amazing marine and rocky shore life in front of you. 

Recognising your environment, accepting it and producing relevant images from the experience.

 Here we will immerse ourselves in the natural surroundings, discovering the power of unbridled imagination, child-like curiosity, intuition and vision in the journey of the photograph. We will spend time learning that either side of the moment we choose to press the shutter is a journey of discovery – the journey of capture and the journey of expression.

How to journey beyond shutter speeds

 Our intent on this workshop will be to inform you how to journey beyond shutter speeds and white balances into the heart of photography – making images that speak, images that tell stories, images that inform the mind and move the heart.  There is no better place for this than at Lekkerwater. I invite to come and join us on these very special workshops, at exceptionally special rates.
