Workshop – Week in South Tyrol 

Inmidst the gorgeous mountains of South Tyrol, Ulla Lohmann and Basti Hofmann share their knowledge how to capture the greatest moments, views, sights and angles.

You learn to feel important details and handle your camera better. At the same time, their skillfull guidance will lead you to experience breathtaking places. Another highlight is the delicious South Tyrolian cooking with organic, locally sourced ingredients.

The workshop is for everybody who is interested in learning how tell stories with their pictures and how to take images which speak for themselves – no matter if beginner or semi-professional.
