How Do Wildlife Photography Courses work?

The photography courses are available from 1 to 6 people per course. The courses provide an inspiring and supporting environment to indulge in a wonderful photographic experience.
With an inspiring and supporting environment we mean that there is no wrong or right, there are no stupid questions. In order to be creative, one needs to feel safe to express him/herself.
It is recommended to have some basic skills in operating your camera and your image software on the laptop. Please bring one laptop per person and do not share it with your friend or spouse. It can take too much time to process the photos and you might disturb or limit each other.

The course is not a lecture like in a class room. You will have the freedom to learn through assignments followed by reflections and there will be guidance throughout all assignments and reflections. Specialities regarding the photographic object will be pointed out. You will be guided through the complexity of photography to achieve great results on the photographic and artistic level. The courses are full day programs with time to rest, relax and enjoy the great venues where they are taking place.
Ute Sonnenberg will share her experience and knowledge with you, but she won’t push you to photograph like she does. Its about the students and their talents and skills.
