Eastern Free State (1- 4 March 2018)

This has to be one of the most magnificent photographic canvasses in S.A.

Come Join Us!


On this Photo-tour you will explore Clarens, Rosendal, Ficksburg and Fouriersburg while travelling through the magnificent Eastern Freestate in Autumn as the Poplars turn yellow against the electric blue sky – all while improving your photographic skills!


There are a minimum of four and maximum of twelve people per photographer on this tour so early booking is essential to avoid disappointment.



1-4 March 2018 BOOKINGS ARE OPEN


We have created fixed workshops during the tour to ensure that we cover as many aspects of photography as possible. These are worked around the best light, travel times, check in times and meal times.

There is also time between the workshops for each photographer to have one-on-one time with the professional instructors – to assist with their camera set up, camera bag and checking of camera settings. These are 30 minute time slots and need to be booked in advance.

The instructors will also go through each persons photographs through out the tour outside of the workshops – to assess, crit and comment on their images.

The tour does also allow for free time as the mornings are early as the nights are long.


Accommodation can be arranged at the same place that the photographers are staying.

R875 per person per night in a room with single beds sharing.
R1250 in a room not sharing (single person rate).

Or you can book or your own accommodation at a hotel / campsite etc and meet the group for the educational photowalks.
