I’m stoked to organise an Introduction Outdoor Photography Workshop in collaboration with the incredible people from the Nomads Bus. This weekend workshop starts from the very beginning of a photographer’s journey and is aimed to improve your photography skills. All you need is an interest in photography, have a DSLR or a (mirrorless) camera with manual settings and like outdoor adventures.
