Andalucia in southern Spain is one of the most beautiful areas in Europe – it simply cannot be rivalled for the variety of scenery, climate, spectacular mountains, history, culture and fantastic flora and fauna to be found. There will be an abundance of photo opportunities. Let the landscape inspire you, our relaxing, inspiring and fun-filled photography holidays are designed to help both the experienced photographer and the beginner. Your tutor, professional photographer Graham provides a fun and relaxed environment in which to maximise the learning experience.
Learn how to get the most out of your DSLR, CSC and bridge cameras. In fact any camera will do. Learn about composition, exposure, perspective, apertures and shutter speeds at each location. The aim is for participants to return home a more experienced and confident photographer having made a few friends and a really fantastic holiday
Participants will enjoy comfortable and roomy accommodation, wonderful local food and wine.
What’s more – the holiday is fantastic value for money!
Our base Competa is surrounded by national park and breathtaking mountains and only 25 minutes from beautiful beaches. Long known as the pearl of the region of Axarquía, Competa is located seven hundred metres above sea level – it has stunning views of the surrounding mountains, countryside and Mediterranean. Competa is best known for its locally produced wine. The town is self sufficient and thriving with a charming flower bedecked old town. It’s main centre, the Plaza Almijara is dominated by a magnificent sixteenth century church. This bustling square is one of the best places to enjoy a break with a choice of several bars and restaurants. Competa is fascinating to explore with its labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets that date back to Moorish times and has spectacular views.
Where are we staying
In order to keep the teaching informal and individual our group size is limited to 7 participants. Villa Andalucia has 4 rooms so we also use the neighbouring Hotel Balcon.
Villa Andalucia is situated on a large plot with 2 separate entrances. It is totally private yet only a short stroll from the beautiful Andalucian village centre of Competa – ideally placed for a relaxing holiday yet close to shops, bars & restaurants. The pool is set in beautiful gardens with some wonderful exotic plants as you can see from the photographs. Here you can take your breakfast while looking down over the valley and the surrounding mountains down to the coast
Surrounded by white houses, flowered balconies, narrow and winding streets, vineyards. In the background are the Sierra de la Almijara and the blue colour of the Mediterranean. The rooms are located in one of the most beloved towns of Málaga. This is Cómpeta, in the region of La Axarquía, located just 18 km from the coast and less than 50 km from the capital.
Regular tuition slot – every day we will have a teaching slot of at least an hour to hone our skills as photographers (the frequency and length may be subject to change according to our itinerary) – all tuition will be at Villa Andalucia unless advised otherwise
Register your interest here (there is no obligation) you’ll then receive the itinerary for the week (subject to change)
Apart from your free day Graham will be with you on all activities to help and suggest ways of improving your photography. The holiday is suitable for all skill levels. All you need is a digital camera (any will do but you will get better results from a digital camera with both aperture and shutter priority modes), an iPad, tablet or small laptop would be useful (but not essential)
