Oceanwide Expeditions offers 'Leica' photo workshops onboard m/v Plancius

Oceanwide Expeditions offers  'Leica' photo workshops for beginners and advanced photographers on board MV Plancius



You are interested in wildlife and photography in the Arctic and Antarctica?

You have not obtained the basic skills of photography yet, or you would like to travel with like minded experts?






Photo workshops powered by 'Leica' on board m/v Plancius will be the answer for those who want to enhance their photographic skills while travelling to the most stunning and breath taking regions of the word during expedition cruises to Antarctica or High Arctic. 

The seasons in the polar regions are diverse , there is a lot of wildlife and great landscapes to be discovered. You will bring a piece of this, your personal photo memories, back home

Oceanwide Expeditions announces a special cooperation with "Leica" . Experienced experts  from renowned German 'Leica Akademie'  will supervise photo workshops for beginners and advanced photographers onboard polar explorer vessel MV Plancius. Everybody is welcome to participate, no previous experience required.

The workshop groups (up to 20 participants per guide per landing, and up to 14 participants per guide on supplemented voyages) will be accompanied by a photo expert during activity ashore. Participants with a  special interest in photography use their personal photo equipment or test 'Leica' cameras free of charge .

Photo lectures and practical workshops will be offered during sea and landing days. Participants will learn more about objects, exposures and photo composition.

The workshops do not intend to instruct on how to use specific camera models, but more to give an insight on better photo results by respecting basic rules of photography. Photographers can also take part in other activities of their choice.

Photo workshops are mostly free of charge during 'Basecamp' voyages and other selected voyages. Workshops with supplement guarantee more focus on  photography in exclusive small groups (experts and those who want to become experts).

Free photo workshops are open for all passengers (beginners and experts). The workshops must be pre-booked with Oceanwide's reservation departments prior to departure. All photo workshops are powered by 'Leica' (except PLA29, 2012).
