photography 101

A week long residential photography holiday to enhance your core digital photography skills and techniques. We take you to some of the most amazing locations in the Valencia and Alicante region to capture fantastic images, create wonderful memories and leave you with skills to last a life time.

essential photography skills

From beginner to keen amateur, you'll learn and improve the essential photography skills and techniques.
We will cover everything from the exposure triangle, ISO, camera modes, composition, understanding lenses, and Bokeh to advanced skills such as Bracketing, HDR, Tripods, Filters and image processing e.g. Photoshop / Lightroom. 

Groups are limited to only 6-8 people and we'll have the opportunity to shoot the amazing landscapes and mountains of the Serra Mariola, the vineyards of the Valencia 'tuscany' of Fontanars, historic towns such as Bocairent and Xativa, the stunning modern architecture of Valencia's city of Arts & Sciences and much more.


We take you to all of the locations but there will be some short walks, optional early sunrise starts and sunset finishes, but there is plenty of time to relax at Casa Sanz or the local mountain lakes, and of course to enjoy the pre-booked dinners at a fantastic selection of restaurants.
