If you love to travel and you love taking photos, put them together for one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences you’ll ever have. Travel photography is difficult to master, it’s a mix of landscapes, people, street scenes, architecture and just about everything else put in the pressure cooker of time constraints and unique cultures. The challenge of getting a great shot and the desire to share it with other are both good reasons why travel photography is so rewarding.

This class will address:

  • Research & Planning
  • Travel Gear
  • Health & Security
  • Photographic Equipment
  • Gear Preparation
  • Camera Set-up
  • Shooting Tips
  • Great Photo locations

Instructor John Greengo is a well-traveled photographer who has seen and photographed many of the world’s most photogenic places. Whether working for a travel TV show or off on his own adventures, John has gained valuable real world experience that he will share with you. His classes are filled with visual examples from around the globe that will show you the step by step process of how to take a great travel photo.

This class is an intermediate level class for people with a basic understanding of photography and a knowledge on how their camera works. This class will not be covering photographic basics like shutter speed, depth-of-field and ISO. A basic photography class and or a camera class is recommended but not required.
