Shoot stunning landscapes and explore local culture through this travel photography workshop.
4 days of shooting and post processing, S$1200 (see discount, course outline or sign up now)
Go overseas with our instructor and shoot beautiful landscapes on location at Cemoro Lawang and Mt. Bromo.
Most people visit Mount Bromo on a package tour, fighting their way through a throng of tourists while trying to get a glimpse of it during sunrise. Within a day, they are off, having missed a sky full of stars and the warm hospitality of the Tengerrese people, not to mention having only gotten pictures filled with other tourists.
We on the other hand, believe travel photography is more about the travel than about the photography. Rather than fight through crowds of tourists, we’d rather spend more time soaking in the culture and getting better pictures by moving in small groups (no more than 6 participants on this workshop) and mingling with the locals. We also make sure you get pictures free of other tourists and annoying distractions.
From the sunrise at Penanjakan to the sea of sand surrounding Mt. Bromo, this workshop will bring you to this lunar landscape and give you a hands on experience in shooting and editing your images like a pro. We’ve done the groundwork in scouting for the best locations and timings for your shoots so all you have to do is turn up, shoot, edit and immerse yourself in the local culture.
When not shooting the splendid sunrise or the Milky Way in its full glory, you will organise and process your pictures so you can go back home with a set of pictures processed and ready for print and web.
This workshop is a premium workshop kept to an extremely small size of 6 persons max so that each student gets the attention needed to learn effectively and get great pictures at the end of the workshop.
It is recommended and suitable for serious photographers, as well as aspiring amateurs who have basic working knowledge of their cameras (DSLR, mirror less interchangeable lens cameras and compacts with manual exposure) and looking to take their skills further.
Learn to Handle the Tricky Light at Sunrise
Not only during the shoot but also in post production, learn to blend, stitch and merge photos for panoramas and start trails during the post processing session after every shoot. The instructors will also orientate you with Photoshop and Lightroom during the course of the workshop.
Mingle with the Locals and Explore the Tengerrese Culture
While Bromo is more well known for its awesome landscape, the people in this land are like none other in Java and have a unique culture. You will interact with horsemen, farmers and other people making a living in this mountainous land. While shooting landscapes can be fun, it’s always great to add a couple of photos documenting the culture and lifestyles of the local people.
Shoot under Continuous Guidance from the Instructor
Most travel photography workshops pack large number of participants with varied skills in one big group. With just 6 people on the workshop, it won’t be difficult getting the instructor’s attention. Our instructors are down to earth and ready to rough it out to ensure you get the best travel experience. Feel free to pick their brains after the shoots, during meals and drinks.
