Description of Photography holiday in Andalucia, Spain
Andalucia, Spain is the ideal location for a photography holiday, and this week long trip is both a relaxing break and a chance to improve your photography skills. Designed to be fun and inspiring, this photo holiday suits both beginners and those with more experience. Set your talent free and enjoy taking photos in a range of lovely locations. Then relax each evening in comfy and spacious accommodation in the village of Torrox, and tuck into the excellent, healthy local food and wine. This holiday is also very reasonably priced.
You will be under the guidance of an experienced, approachable tutor, who is incredibly knowledgeable about photography and about Andalucia, too. Photographers with all levels of experience are welcome and will benefit from this tuition, learning how to get more from their DSLR or bridge cameras. Everything from composition to exposure and lighting will be talked through and practiced when out on location, so that you head home with a wealth of photography experience and lots more confidence in your skills. This is also a chance to make new friends in a relaxed and inclusive environment and enjoy a wonderful break, too.
Andalucia, in southern Spain, is exceptionally pretty, with a huge range of scenery, impressive mountains, a good climate, history, culture and a great diversity of flora and fauna. This becomes your beautiful canvas, as you photograph your way around the region.
