Zooming In: Macro Photography

Macro photography is one of the most fascinating ways to capture the beauty in the simplest of subjects. In this workshop, discover seeing, and capturing, details you have never looked at before. In this one day workshop, you learn to take a close-up approach to what’s before you and to create uniquely individual interpretations of objects in the world around you. This workshop is a great, hands-on experience where you will create your own portfolio of macro photographs.

The Traveling Photographer's Workshop - Paternoster

This workshop is in collaboration with fellow photographer and travel journalist, Anita de Villiers, at Paternoster

Nature Photography

This course is part of the curriculum of the Northern Cape Nature Academy situated close to Kimberley. It is a basic Nature photography workshop where we start with the basics and work step-by-step to the point where the students can explore the full creative possibilities of their cameras.

Contemplative Photography

Contemplative photography is not a genre as is, for example, Macro or Nature photography. It has nothing to do with having the right lens or the best camera, but everything to do with the interaction of our inner being with the object in the viewfinder. Using the camera lens as an extension of our inner seeing, contemplative photography focuses attention and holds our awareness, making it an exercise in mindfulness.
