Nature Photography Experience
This Nature Photography Workshop is for everyone who loves nature and photography. We combine forest bathing, nature therapy with photography. Dive into the healing air of the forest, relax from the hectic everyday life, connect with yourself , reflect and refocus. We help you to improve your photography skills and open your senses to the endless beauty of nature to capture the magic of the forest. This tranquillity should be transferred to the photos and made tangible to you.
Because what you see, is what you feel.
We can’t wait to welcome you out in the woods.
