Namibia is a country with boundless territories, among the least populated on the planet. Dominated by a central skeleton of plateaus, it extends to the west in the Namib desert to touch the Atlantic, facing east on the immense Kalahari. It is a geographical area with an irresistible charm, an authentic other part of the world. The Namib, the "land of nothingness", has been dry for 80 million years. The Namib-Naukluft National Park, the most explored area in our workshop, represents its most striking landscape interest. The tour will move from Windhoek to the more remote areas of the park, where there is no accommodation facility, using 4x4 vehicles equipped to stay on the roof tent. This experience, made of direct and continuous contact with the local nature, will allow the participants to fully immerse themselves in new rhythms and to begin to understand lights, colors and shapes of the Namibian desert. So many shooting sessions and the chance, crossing immense esplanades, to come across ostriches, giraffes, gazelles, oryxes, zebras; in this area there are no cats. We will then head south, arriving at the most famous and celebrated area of Namibia: the Sossusvlei area. Overnight in an exclusive lodge, the last before nothing, you will have the opportunity to make excursions to discover the very high red dunes and the most famous Vlei, some of the most unlikely scenarios on the planet. The chosen shooting areas will be tackled at different times of the day, from before sunrise to late sunset, with the aim of refining the perception of different African light. With all the necessary time available, each participant will be guided to the best realization of their images. Then, along one of the most scenic dirt roads, we will leave towards the Kanaan reserve, a condensation of desert visions. This splendid private reality, where you will spend the night in an equipped campsite, manages and preserves intact a vast and enchanting territory, which will be explored through personalized tours. The last stage of the workshop, going back to the capital, will be a view of the great Kalahari, a different reality, with a more vivid nature and different colors, but no less exciting. Overnight at an equipped campsite and, the following morning, return to the airport for departure. An experience in Africa programmed and organized with the same passion as always. A photographic adventure that leaves its mark.
