We will make sure you get the shots!
Imagine that You are in a location that most people will only ever dream about travelling too. You are all set and a cheetah is chasing down prey... your pulse quickens and you are not sure what the shutter speed should be set at... so you just take the series of shots and that once in a lifetime scene is now a blur of animals. Why? You were not prepared to get the shot. You did not have the photographic mentoring standing with you to prepare you for that once in a lifetime shot.
A Photographer's Lounge leader will make sure you have the pre-trip briefing, field instruction and night time recap discussions to make sure you are prepared.Our goal is to develop world class learning workshops for photographers of all aptitudes. Each designed for specific photographic styles and levels of photography.
Read what others say about our workshops and please check out the workshops below that are available for you.
