Andalucía mágica

International Photo Tour
Magical Andalusia
3 - 10 March


This photographic trip to the unknown Andalusia focuses on the east of this area that is located in the south of Spain. It is a region with beautiful varied landscapes, such as a unique and unknown desert area, which, surrounded by five high mountain ranges, mostly covered with snow, forms an incredibly contrasting landscape. Due to its geological characteristics, it has recently been declared a Geopark of Granada. Its spectacular and photogenic landscapes treasure a great variety of shapes and colors reminiscent of documentaries of distant landscapes. We will also visit the beautiful volcanic beaches of Cabo de Gata, agricultural landscapes in Tuscany style, abandoned "Berber" mountain villages, the mysterious rocky labyrinth of the Torcal de Antequera and, of course, we will portray the snowy peaks of Sierra Nevada.  
A journey through the most varied and contrasting landscapes of eastern Andalusia, with great opportunities to discover, enjoy and photograph these unique landscapes.

About the workshops:

The trips and workshops are organized by teachers with proven experience in landscape and night photography and are aimed at a wide audience; from those who are interested in knowing interesting places, the amateur photographer with a desire to learn or profile his/her knowledge to the professional, interested in expanding her/his photographic portfolio.
The workshops seek to familiarize participants with the different theoretical and practical aspects of landscape and night photography and prepare them for the different situations and possibilities on the locations. The photographic sessions are in this sense focused on learning and applying the concepts previously treated in the theoretical workshops. The photo sessions also allow the participants to know spectacular places from the natural, cultural and landscape point of view, and spend a pleasant stay in them, accompanied by expert photographers with good knowledge of the area who will be at the full disposal of the participants to answer any questions and facilitate appropriate advice.
The workshop or journey also includes viewings of the pictures taken by the students, in which the technical and aesthetic aspects of the images are commented with advice on how to improve in both aspects.
Although it is not required, it is recommended to participate with basic knowledge of photography to get more out of the trip.

Recommended (photographic) material:
Although it is not essential to attend, it is recommended to go with a digital camera to get more out of the workshops. As complementary materials we advise to bring a tripod, polarizing filters, gradient and neutral grey filters (of different densities), trigger cable, lens clean kit, batteries and charger, umbrella and rain cover (just in case) for the camera and front.
To move around the photographic locations it is essential to have good footwear, preferably hiking boots.
To get to the photographic locations some itineraries pass through unpaved roads, normally passable for cars in normal conditions and in some cases it would be necessary to do some hiking on foot so we recommend that the participants are accustomed to walking in the nature and that they have a minimum physical condition and agility, to be able to reach the locations and enjoy them.
