Photo Workshop

Fall Photography Workshop / Tour

This guided photography tour is for anyone with a passion and desire to capture beautiful vacation photographs from the most idealic locations throughout Bavaria. The photography tour is a three night package including tours to exciting shooting locations with an experienced local photographer guide. These packages always sell out, so if you are interested in learning about photography, getting taken to the most beautiful places in Bavaria and come home with some five star imagery then this is the package for you.

The tour is designed to help further your knowledge of photography fundamentals and immerse yourself for a few days with your camera and beautiful locations. Attendees must own and have a working knowledge of their camera. A tripod is required because we will be shooting in low light conditions. Weather is also variable, so warm clothes that are weather resistent are required. You will come back from your vacation with beautiful images of the area, both landscapes and cultural, along with new techniques to apply to your photography.

Additional Information

Limited to only 16 photographers.
$499 for two adults in a room, with one photography participant.
