Our special photography weeks are for those who wish to understand more about photography and to improve their technique, whilst exploring and discovering beautiful land and seascapes and all kinds of fascinating subject matter.
They are run by Nicholas Fischer, who has recently retired from his commercial career, but retains a passion for the photographic image. Over the course of his photographic career, Nicholas has not only worked for a diverse range of prestigious clients including Janet Reger, the Royal Horticultural Society, Allied Breweries and Boeing, but also displayed his work at exhibitions at the Design Centre London, the Barbican Gallery and the Chelsea and Hampton Court Flower Shows, to name but a few. Perhaps more importantly, Nicholas has also worked as a part-time lecturer in photography at Nottingham University and Manchester Metropolitan University, so he has experience in sharing his knowledge of, and passion for, photography.
For a supplement of just €130 per person in addition to the cost of your stay at Mandarin, our photography package consist of five full-day tutorials, each dedicated to a different theme, and one full day at leisure. The tutorial days start with a photographic briefing at 09:30, allowing enough time for a leisurely breakfast, before departing the hotel around 10:30 by minibus in pursuit of suitable subject matter. We return to Mandarin by 16:30 in time for afternoon tea, and reconvene around 18:00 for a critique of the images taken, with plenty of opportunity for further discussion over dinner.
The themes covered include:
Equipment required: Basic digital camera with manual override system, basic tripod or camera support, polarizing filter.
Our Photography Weeks run concurrent with our Turkish Cuisine Weeks, so these are ideal for couples where one wishes to take part in the photography classed and the other in the cookery demonstrations.
All our tours in 2017 are organized by our local agent, Siper Tour (Tursab Nr. 3227).
