We start with a chat about photography. I am interested in the type of camera or phone you will be using and would like to know 'how' you normally take photos. After this we start with a fundamental part of the experience: choosing a theme! You can pick a theme yourself or choose one from a list provided. The theme will be your focus and you will take only photos based on this specific theme. This way it will be a fun and relaxed photo walk and I guarantee you will be challenged to look at a city in a different way! Then we start walking through Nerja. During the walk I will teach you tips and tricks how to make better photos with your camera or smartphone and how to create a beautiful photo series. Of course you can ask as many questions as you want. After the 2-hour walk we go to a terrace and check and select the photos while enjoying a drink. Eventually you will share the 5 best pictures and this 'high five' moment will be a creative and surprising result of your experience!
I've been working with cameras for over 25 years as a filmmaker and photographer. Since I love to share my knowledge I've been doing photo and film workshops for companies and individuals for over 10 years. I'm from the Netherlands but live in Spain since 2014. The city of Nerja is a beautiful place on the coast where I keep discovering places and new perspectives. I value creativity and in my opinion you don't need an expensive camera to create beautiful images. Most tourists use a compact camera or a smartphone to capture the city and I love to teach you tips & tricks for this!
Water and one drink of your choice on a terrace
We will pass through different parts of Nerja. We start at the Plaza de España and from there we walk through urban neighborhoods towards the beach. We walk along the sea for a while, pass some nice squares and enter the touristic center leading to the famous 'Balcon de Europa'. We finish with a few pedestrian streets in the heart of Nerja before coming back to the starting point. The variety of places is ideal for taking your beautiful photos!
We will walk for 2 hours so wear comfortable shoes. And of course you will take a lot of photos. Whatever device you use for this, make sure the battery is charged and there is enough storage space!
