Seychelles

A whole week exploring and shooting 3 of the most beautiful islands on the planet, without haste, noise, distractions. Photographing freely, according to the rhythms dictated by light, in a completely different dimension. An unforgettable workshop.

The Seychelles islands are often associated, in the collective imagination, with a corner of paradise and those who have been there, like us, can only agree. We are well aware that this choice, proposing a landscape photography workshop in "exotic" places such as these, may, erroneously, seem more like the proposal of a journey of pure pleasure and relaxation, rather than a workshop to deepen the landscape photographic genre. In reality these islands, unparalleled earthly representations of the concept of Beauty, are a perfect stage for improving oneself in photography. Between white beaches, some recognized as the most beautiful ever, luxuriant and emerald vegetation, unimaginable granite shapes, with the background of the waves breaking on the reef in the distance, the moments of discovery of a new "feeling" follow each other. after another. It is a workshop that will make use of the enchanting settings of the islands to lead the participants to the creation of emotionally pregnant images, interpretations of an extremely simple and minimal reality that offers itself, in the quality of all its elements, to the photographic gesture of deep breath .
Of the entire archipelago, located in the western Indian Ocean just below the equator, the most attractive islands will be visited.
We will explore the lush Praslin, full of beaches and magnificent sea views, moving by minibus, staying overnight in strategically placed chalets on the sea. We will then move by sea to the enchanting and tiny LaDigue, where there are no means of transport other than bicycles; here you will spend the night in a renowned charming hotel. LaDigue is an island, a part of the world, from which it is impossible to leave without leaving a piece of yourself: pedaling under a dense forest of palm trees to arrive at Anse source d'Argent, the most beautiful beach in the world, is a indelible experience. And then the colors of the light, the sensations on the skin, the mild temperatures, the hospitality, the Creole cuisine.
Last day in Mahè, the big island, to grasp customs, habits, rhythms of life.
This is a new destination, a workshop that offers a lot and in which we strongly believe, a new joint that we would like to recommend and guarantee.
