Instructor: Yiannis Rizomarkos
The ultimate photographic experience for the lovers of mature-landscape photography as well as the longest and favorite travel program of the school! A photographic trip to the wetland of Lake Kerkini, the natural refuge of migratory birds and water buffalos living on its banks. Bicycling and hiking among forests and meadows, boats and canoeing on the water trails are the means we will use to photograph the unique flora and fauna of the area. At the northwestern tip of Serres, we find one of the most beautiful places in Greece, an ancient biotope surrounded by riparian forests and dense forests, creating a landscape of unique natural charm. It is a refuge for many species of birds, many of which are endangered or are now represented by very small populations.
During this workshop we will search for the best shots from sunrise until sunset. We will record stunning moments of bird nests in the Sinking Forest, buffaloes that swim among the water lilies and shocking lakeside landscapes, overlooking the horizon from the mountainous complexes of Mount Belles and Kroussia. The workshop includes suggestions on the visual and technical approach to the subject, personal advice and guidance from the instructor, Yiannis Rizomarkos and Dimitra Papageorgiou, as well as analyzing and criticizing the resulting images. During this trip you will not miss the free time, as well as also a delightful bath in the oldest Turkish bath. Do not forget to pack your swimsuit!
The journey is addressed to everyone, regardless of the photographic level, to beginners with the basic technical knowledge, but also to the more experienced photographers who want to experience and enhance their portfolios. Participants should have together a laptop for editing images.
