What you'll do

We will meet in Magura which is easily accessible from Bran and Brasov. We will hike through this Traditional Romanian village and head to the neighboring village of Pestera, where we will also do our photo shoot. The hike is a easy/moderate level, it's approximately a 2 hour hike there and 2 hours back, the area is perfect for landscape photography. The stunning Carpathian Mountains set the perfect backdrop for the workshop and this area is rich in tradition and culture. The local village offers plenty to photograph including often seen flocks of sheep, horse drawn carriages, traditional Romanian haystacks and traditional village homes for a beautiful setting. Once we have our photo session complete we will enjoy a Traditional Romanian Vegetarian lunch overlooking the Carpathian Mountains, lunch is made by our family . After lunch we will head back to Magura to have an editing session of the photos we took, which will also include a professional critique session and lessons on how to improve your personal photography. Besides in-the-field instructions, this photo workshop also includes personal time for you, so instructors can review your images and discuss photography techniques. Our workshop include little known hiking trails to unique and beautiful off the beaten path locations which is a real treat for those wanting to learn and raise their level of photography skills
