10-Day Andalusia Spain Photography Workshop

September 29 to October 8, 2023

“You balanced out the group and individual gatherings so we could each have unique experiences." 'Tonk' Fischer, Salem, Ore.

Andalusia is an autonomous region of hills, rivers, and farmland bordering Spain’s southern coast. Through the centuries, the region has been under Roman, Visigoth, Moorish, and Spanish rule. The architecture and landmarks reflect all of these influences.

Andalusia's Moorish heritage sparkles in the historic capitals of Granada and Córdoba. And the pride of the Reconquista and the power of Queen Isabel and King Ferdinand enliven the region's great sights. Tasting the fabulous seafood, smooth sherry, and gazpacho for which the region is famous, we will search for the passion in Andalusian culture.

On our 10-day photography tour, we will visit and photograph four of the most enchanting cities in Andalusia, Granada, Cordoba, Seville, and Ronda. Our locations will include the Alcázar castle in Seville, Córdoba’s Mezquita Mosque-Cathedral, and Granada’s enchanted Alhambra palace. We will visit a horse ranch in Seville to photograph the famous Andalusian horses. We will visit the bullfighting mecca of Ronda and the famous Roman bridge that connects the two parts of the town across a chasm.

We will meet in Malaga the night before the workshop officially begins and depart the next morning for Granada where we will spend three days photographing and exploring the legendary city. Granada is famous for its Flamenco, so we will visit at least one show and photograph a dance school.

This workshop/tour is designed to guide you to the most photogenic locations carefully planned for the best light and to help you visualize a scene. You will go home with images to be proud of and know how to use your newfound skills to improve and expand your photographic technique. Apart from the technical aspect of learning your camera settings and capabilities, you will learn how to turn an ordinary image into an extraordinary image by using your creativity.

Our time together will include individual and group discussions, inspiring ideas, and great fun. There is no better location to express your creativity than Andalusia, Spain!
