Learn how to photograph whales, birds, fynbos, landscapes and animals at De Hoop along the Cape coastline this spring.
Wildlife photographer, Dave De Beer, is running a photographic course from 28-30 August, offering visitors a chance to learn how to capture the magnificence of De Hoop Nature Reserve in spring – which of course includes photographing whales in their ocean nursery. The course will suit beginners and/or intermediate amateurs with a DSLR camera.
Dave will be covering five subjects – whales, birds, fynbos, landscapes and animals – each of which will present a different photographic challenge and provide the opportunity to learn a wide range of skills.
Lectures and trips into the field will be interspersed with fab food and wine from what I found to be a really good restaurant at De Hoop called . Price from R850 per person per night, children under 16 stay for free and De Hoop will arrange a variety of kids activities to allow parents to focus on the course (‘scuse the pun). The weekend ends with Sunday morning brunch and awarding of prizes, which includes a stay in the Madikwe Game Reserve worth R14,000.
