What World Photo Adventure Gives You
Photography is more than just seeing; it is about being a part of ones subject and its environment as truly beautiful photography emanates from the deep connection between the world and us. Tangibly the end results will be the amazing images you return home with, but importantly it will too be the unique feelings and deeper connectivity you’ll experience. Photography at its purest is a simultaneous expression of what we see and how it makes us feel, consequently our workshops & courses aim to bring out the feelings which lead to inspirational Photography.
We will learn how to understand and control the Camera as a machine but more importantly we will be learning how to use it as an extension of ourselves. We don’t use cameras to merely take pictures, they are in a sense the excuse to get close to our surroundings and the beauty within them, a very personal and individual interpretation from which we learn the depths to which the photograph reveals the photographer.
Subsequently, through consideration of our images we can see where it is we wish to go and how it is we wish to be. Our aim is to free our inherent creative energies, the more we understand ourselves within the context of our environment the more expressive our photography becomes.
World Photo Adventure
We accompany small groups of like-minded photographers to off the beaten track picturesque locations whilst making it our mission to explore the true nature and identity of our carefully chosen destinations. We will only be staying in carefully chosen quality accommodation, ensuring our stays are calm and comfortable, perfect spaces from which to unwind, recharge and reflect upon the experiences of the day.
The countries we have chosen are only those destinations where we ourselves have travelled, photographed and are familiar with: the terrain, its peoples, and its cultures. Our destinations have been selected not only because of the warmth and openness by which we will be received, but because each one, individually, is a fascinating, colourful, virtual cornucopia of stunning images and experiences in waiting.

In many ways it’s a very close call. I’ve been shooting with the EF28-70/f2.8 and more latterly the EF24-70/f2.8 for a decade now, and have always been impressed with their resultant image quality, which quite honestly can’t be faulted, but.read more
In my introductory article on “Take Great Pictures” my three main points concerned light, composition and experimenting – take lots of images, and select the best. On a recent trip to Budapest and Venice I also became aware, yet again, of remembering to enjoy that which is beyond the camera. It’s what helps me see the bigger picture and take better pictures.read more
