WHAT TO EXPECT

On this workshop you will be introduced to the following aspects of nature photography:

  • How to successfully approach and photograph animals in an intimate setting

  • Camera settings and composition techniques to best capture the animals, birds, and landscape

  • Tips on how to be technical and creative in this calming yet inspiring setting

  • Close up photography of plants, insects, flowers and other small animals

  • This workshop is designed for all levels of amateur photographers

YOUR GUIDES

  • Adrian is a National Geographic cameraman, filming wildlife all over Europe and especially Holland

  • Ruud is a Dutch Wildlife Photographer, shooting in these locations for many years

  • These locations are scouted by us regularly, so we know the best places to find the animals in their natural habitat

WHAT YOU WILL NEED

Sensible clothes. We won’t be hiking particularly far and neither for long periods but we will be exploring the countryside and some walking will be involved so dress appropriately.

You don’t need any special photography equipment although its nice to have a lens with at least 150mm zoom if you want close ups shots of the animals. 

Camera lens. If you decide to rent a lens we recommend budgetcam.nl It is located in Amsterdam North and West. The North site is open until later. They have 200mm, 300mm and above for €20 - €30 per day.

A standard zoom lens is all you need for the landscape photography.

WHERE AND WHEN

30th March 2019 10am - 6pm
Meet outside IBIS hotel, next to Amsterdam Centraal Train Station. As you are facing the station it is to the left of the station. It has a big red sign on it saying IBIS. Google maps link to the meeting place

PLEASE NOTE: Even though we are well experienced in scouting large animals in these areas and are nearly always successful in finding them, there is a chance that we will not see any of the big animals that we hope for.

“The lure of the big city and the trappings of Amsterdam had kept our attention away from the Dutch countryside. But the landscape proved to be captivating and enchanting. Its very calming and serene”
