Adventure and nature photography, or as we’d better call it, “geographic reportage”, is a transversal art that brings together an extraordinary adaptability, both professional and personal, towards an endless series of situations. First of all, we must learn how to travel in order to handle relationships with people of different cultures, upbringings and habits. At the same time we need to know how to move around with any imaginable mean of transport in an often unknown, if not hostile, geography, in an environment difficult to manage in terms ways and times. In order to bring home a good story to tell it’s important to be deeply prepared, to learn to respect “the elsewhere” and to work hard. This workshop will teach you how to move around in harmony and work in unusual places, using shooting techniques useful in any situation.
