Itinerary and Program of Events
You will see Bali through the eyes of a person who loves the Island and is very closely connected with the local communities. He and Australian based Mark Rayner have done more than 20 workshops together, including 4 in Bali and the participants always have a lot of fun, learn plenty and take away some award winning images.
Dave has crafted a 7-day workshop that will take in the best that Bali has to offer, and don’t expect to see any other tourists as we will be venturing into the REAL BALI into many places most visitors do not know exist.
The workshop will begin in Ubud where we will send 2 days taking in the highlights of the area, then we head west to Jembrana regency to photograph buffalo racing in the rice fields, visit Perancak a fascinating fishing village where the Bugis tribe live, and photograph the colorful fishing boats as they return in the early morning with their catch.
Then to North West Bali where we will stay in Pemuteran a charming fishing village with spectacular views over the ocean and volcanos of East Java.
Next we climb into one of the wettest areas of Bali, Munduk and photograph the beautiful terraced rice fields of this area, catch the sun rising over the lakes in the area and visit waterfalls.
Then to the real ancient heart of Bali, Karagansem where the indigenous Balinese are from. This is another spectacular location with incredible views of the spiritual heart of Bali – Mount Agung, historical water palaces and ancient villages.
We then return to Bali and have one more day to look over the images, cover some finer points of photography and relax in our beautiful villa.
If people want to stay on in Ubud they can or return that day
This workshop is designed to be inspiring as it is adventurous, while still remaining relaxing and informal. Though we’ll be spending a majority of our time in the field to make use of the morning and evening light, there will be inspirational presentations from our instructors, tutorials as well as a bit of downtime in the middle of the day to allow you enjoy the tranquility that Bali has to offer. We will cover many techniques of photography as they pertain to Landscape and Portrait photography.
The objective of this workshop is to not only learn and improve your photography skills and techniques but reach into the real heart and soul of this small paradise island. You will be lead into the villages to connect with the friendly Balinese people who love to have their photos taken, learn about their rich and ancient culture and be challenged to express your feelings and connection through the camera lens.
