Travel Photography Course
Whether you are enjoying a weekend city-break, a cultural holiday, a couple of weeks at the beach or trekking in remote areas, travel offers some of the most exciting opportunities for taking great pictures.
This course aims to help you make the most of those opportunities. Subject areas covered include: how to photograph city scenes, landscapes, buildings, monuments, people and wildlife. We'll look at great images by top photographers and consider practical advice to help you make pictures that stand out from the crowd and which capture the essence of your destination.
We will consider the practicalities of travelling with your camera: what sort of accessories you might want to take with you, tips on safety and keeping your equipment working properly together with the need to be sensitive to local cultures and laws. We will also consider ways of sharing your work with others, whether you prefer to make prints or to tell the story of your travels on a website.
It is assumed that you already have a reasonable understanding of how to operate your camera as the course does not cover in depth camera use, (you may well have taken one of our camera courses) but the course will be relevant whether you're using a compact or a DSLR. Homework isn't obligatory, but with a world-class travel destination on our doorstep, you'll be encouraged to complete assignments and upload them to a course blog site for discussion in class. This is always one of the most valuable aspects of our courses and greatly appreciated by students.
"I enjoy traveling and recording far-away places and people with my camera. But I also find it wonderfully rewarding to see what I can discover outside my own window. You only need to study the scene with the eyes of a photographer." - Alfred Eisenstaedt
