Itinerary 12 Days
At once ancient and modern, Prague provides a unique and inspiring backdrop to explore the creative and technical aspects of photography. From Bohemian kings to Communist rule and revolution, this city has a story to tell. Learn how to seize that story through images during hands-on classes led by our instructors and a National Geographic photographer. Then hit the streets to experience the grandeur, grit, and enchantment of a city that has captured the hearts of artists, musicians, and writers for centuries.
In the evenings, review the day’s work or attend seminars by our National Geographic photographer and instructors as they share their professional experiences and insights, then head out to photograph the city at night. Document street life against the dazzling lights of Wenceslas Square, or train your lens on the illuminated arches of the Charles Bridge as they cast reflections on the river below.
Escape to the wooded hills and storied villages of South Bohemia on a two-day photo assignment. Stay in a 14th-century hunting estate and work on your landscape photography while hiking through the Šumava forest and canoeing pristine rivers. Capture the faces of our village neighbors and step back in time on a shoot in the labyrinthine medieval city of ˇCeský Krumlov.
Throughout the workshop we will prepare for a final gallery opening of large-print photos of the group’s best work. Help organize and curate the exhibit, and share your images on our final night.
