For centuries, Turkey has been at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and Africa. Today, Turkey is a modern country with deep roots in tradition. Istanbul in particular is a vibrant city with cultural influences that gives colour, texture and flavour to every experience we will encounter.
We first meet in Istanbul to greet each other and have a meal together. For those who feel up to it after a day of traveling, we will head out for a shooting session on the streets. The next day we take a short flight to the seaside resort town of Kusadasi where we will stay for several days, using this beautiful location as a base from which to take day trips to various locations.
When we have explored the area around Kusadasi, including an exciting overnight location, we return to Istanbul. Back in Istanbul we will have full days of exploring and photographing street life and beautiful mosques, including the spectacular, Blue Mosque. We will have the opportunity to view the city from a boat on the Bosporus as we take a boat cruse along the strait, one of the points that separate continental Asia and Europe. From the Spice Market to the Grand Bazaar to underground cisterns, you will experience life, culture and beauty in unique ways that will leave you breathless and wanting to return.
Our last afternoon together will be a relaxed presentation session where workshop participants will present a curated gallery of favourite images from this trip. So check your calendar and reserve the date for this small-group workshop to one of the most fascinating locations in the world.
